Face masks may have given way to dramatic eye makeup, but nothing will ever replace a great statement lipstick. The newest launches are tailored to our pandemic lifestyles, with stay-put formulas and balm-like moisturizing properties. And with new limited-edition shades of tried-and-true favorites, you might actually be excited to put on makeup or your next Zoom meeting. Intrigued? Here is our edit of the best new lipsticks you have to try before summer.
You can thank Selena Gomez for this dreamy pink-lavender liquid lipstick from her fantastic new makeup line, Rare Beauty. Its addictive, whipped texture dries to a matte finish, while vitamin E keeps lips from drying out.
For those who simply can’t go without a bold lip, this smudge-proof, waterproof red stands up to just about anything (even double-masking).
Leave it to Charlotte Tilbury to infuse the hydrating power of hyaluronic acid into a lip color. It may technically be a balm, but don’t be fooled by the name—Happipetal and the other seven shades are as pigmented as any lipstick in your makeup bag.
