This year was a big one for lipstick; trends like metallic, ombre, and even glitter lips were popular. Regardless of what wild lip trends 2016 brought, one thing’s for sure: lipsticks will never go out of fashion. Although glitter lips may not be as popular in 2017, you can trust that your go-to red lip will always be cute.

Whether you’re a beauty risk-taker that loves to participate in wild trends, or someone who likes to stick to your best matte lipstick, it’s important to know which brands you can depend on for a great formula. We’re in the midst of winter, so finding the best lipstick brand for dry lips is a must!

If you haven’t yet found the best lipstick color for your skin tone, we’ve put together a list of some of the best lipstick brands out there—trust us, they make some awesome long lasting lipsticks.


MAC Cosmetics is famous for their extensive line of lipsticks, so you know you’ll be able to find a color for you. They also have limited edition releases every now and then. Their most recent was a collaboration with Mariah Carey. Her nude shades and glittery packaging are to die for.

MAC definitely got into the holiday spirit this year! They posted a picture of the iconic matte MAC lipstick: Ruby Woo, a universally flattering red that’s dipped in glitter.

Kylie Cosmetics

Possibly one of the biggest fads of 2016, Kylie Jenner’s lip kits show no sign of going out of fashion any time soon. Her crazy comfortable liquid lipstick formula has attracted millions of buyers, not to mention the fab range of colors. She released some awesome holiday edition items and even offered a free matte lipstick in the shade Merry with every purchase over the holiday season!
