Happy International Lipstick Day! Today is a great day to widen your lipstick collection as a lot of brands are on sale or are offering up special bundles (Tip: Check out the SM Lipstick Festival, NYX’s Swatch and Tell Kit, and Human Nature’s promo.)
But as you go out and hoard more lip products, ever stopped to wonder what lipstick is worth getting rid of your entire collection? *gasp of horror* I don’t mean to give you a heart attack, but I just mean that among all the lip products out there you will try and buy, there’s just about one or two that you will swear by.
So this is the question we asked a few of our favorite women. What they gave us are not only recommendations that will inspire our next lipstick purchase but also reveal their lifestyle demands and even their personalities.
“I just like to wear a tint so it’s simple and easy to apply. I love the Sooper Beaute Lip and Cheek Rolly in Blood Red.”—Sofia Andres, actress
“I have a few go-to brands that I rotate, but lately, I’ve been relying on the L’Oreal Infalliable Lipstick in Refined Ruby to last throughout whole day shoots. I love it because it’s creamy but matte, and fades evenly into a nice stain without leaving that dreaded lip outline.”—Shaira Luna, photographer
“OMG! This is so hard [but] as of now, I super love the Etude House Rosy Tint in Tea Rose. It’s THE most perfect MLBB ever and every time I wear it, I get compliments and people asking where they can get it. It’s so pretty and natural.”—Jess Diaz-Wilson, model
“MAC in Lady Danger. It’s been a consistent favorite forever and it’s the perfect orange red to mix in with other shades to brighten them up.”—Martine Cajucom, creative director, Sunnies Studios
“My Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Oil-infused Sculpting Lipstick in the color Wild Lotus. I love it! It keeps my lips hydrated all day because of the oils that are infused, so it works as a lip balm. The color is natural but evident enough to carry from day to night. I don’t have much time to go home and change so I need a multipurpose lipstick, so this is it.”—Tricia Centenera, blogger and host
“Definitely NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London. It’s not drying at all like most matte [lipsticks] in the market, you can apply it easily without a mirror and it’s literally the perfect nude. I have a lot of nude lippies but this just hits the right hue for my skintone.”—Ida Anduyan, blogger
“Rodin Lipstick in Red Hedy. The perfect red. When I wear it, I feel like everybody’s boss.”—Bea Ledesma, group publisher, Hinge Inquirer Publications
“Very Victoria by Charlotte Tilbury. It’s the perfect nude and I also use it to tone down bright shades.”—Ria Prieto, editor-in-chief, InquirerRED Magazine and editor-at-large, Preen.ph
“MAC in Whirl. Probably the most flattering lip color I own—rosy-dark brown shade that makes my lips look fuller than usual. Plus points for it being matte. And oh, my most recent fave (and by recent, I meant like RIGHT NOW) is Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita II. It’s the most amazing terracota and it feels good on the lips.”—Jacque De Borja, managing editor, Preen.ph
“MAC Mehr. This lipstick will always be special to me because it was my first ever non-drugstore lipstick splurge. It also triggered my obsession with MAC lipsticks. I love this shade because you can wear it pretty much anywhere—to a formal event, a date, or even just a casual day out in the mall. It’s the perfect pink color for me and I could never go wrong with it.”—Denise Fernandez, associate editor, Scout Magazine
