We combed through the endless offerings to bring you our top ten, organized from nearly nude to deep violet.

Juice Beauty

Shimmery Champagne

Subtle enough to play off like a nude, but just glittery enough not to qualify as lip balm.

Juice Beauty ($22)

Perricone MD

No Lipstick Lipstick

The barefaced look is still going strong, and this shade is meant to hydrate while enhancing your natural coloring. Hint: It looks a bit different on everyone.

Perricone MD ($30)

Face Stockholm

Dusty Rose

To pull off this on-trend pout, be sure that your lips are exfoliated and pre-moisturized (no to crease lines here, thank you). Also, make sure the shade is slightly darker than your natural skin tone to avoid washing you out.

Face Stockholm ($22)


Sheer Coral

Although this color looks crazy intimidating, it’s actually sheer (phew). One swipe provides a healthy glow and a subtle peach sheen that offsets naturally pink lips.

NYX ($6)

Estée Lauder

Two-Tone Ombré

The Beyoncé trend heard around the world has become significantly easier to pull off thanks to this two-in-one tube. Use each color on its own or blend them together on your bottom lip to achieve a coveted ombré look.

Estée Lauder ($32)


Bright Fuchsia

“Pop” of pink doesn’t even begin to cover it. This one-swipe wonder packs a serious punch.

Maybelline ($6)


Blood Orange

A striking shade may seem destined for summer nights, but you can pull it off a lot sooner with the help of a bold, matte formula (and a little bronzer).

Tarte ($17)


Cherry Red

With instant face-brightening power, the classic hue gets bonus points thanks to the fact that it’s also all-natural.

Ilia ($29)

Bobbi Brown

Red Wine

This crayon gets extra love for camouflaging the unsightly side effect of that third glass of Cabernet.

Bobbi Brown ($28)

Urban Decay

Deep Violet

Turns out purple undertones—rather than blood red—are the differentiator between a moody pout and one that’s stuck in the middle of winter.

Urban Decay ($17)
