The Biggest Lipstick Trend This Winter
This season is all about shiny lipsticks, which offer the best of all worlds if you think about it: pigment, shine and moisture. Wear them to a holiday party (or two) or through the dry months of winter. We've got six options for you to consider.
Maybelline Color Sensational Shine Compulsion Lipstick
This lipstick is made of 60 percent reflective oils. What does this mean for you? It will glide on better than anything you've ever tried before (seriously, it all but melts into your lips) and give you a nice shiny finish that’s more hydrating than greasy.
Chantecaille Lip Sleek
This slim pen will fit into any clutch or purse without adding bulk. (We've also found the smaller bullet to offer a more precise application.) Though you can't go wrong with any of the eight shades, Orchid (the fuchsia above) is the one color we can always rely on to brighten up our winter pallor.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Lip Shine
We'd recommend this tube for the chronically chapped. With castor seed oil and sodium hyaluronate in the formula, it's more moisturizing than most (while still delivering a vibrant swipe of color).
Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge Lip Lacquer
If you're the type of person who likes a lot of shine on your lips, you won't be disappointed by this liquid formula that we can only describe as a lip stain with a vinyl finish.
L'Oréal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick
You know how some lipsticks settle into fine lines and leave that dreaded ring around your lips? This one was just as even and smooth a few hours in as it was going on.
Wu-Tang x Milk Makeup Lip Color
Talk about a statement lip—in every sense of the phrase. From the ornate black-and-gold packaging to the juicy color, everything about this lipstick feels luxe. Chi, which is described as a "high shine true red," is easily the best red lipstick we've tried all year.
