Covering a full spectrum of shades and textures, this collection of Top 10 Lipsticks is sure to have one with your name on it. Whether you’re looking for a subtle coral, vibrant pink, sultry red, or something altogether different, there’s a stunning shade just waiting to be discovered. Which one will make its way into your rotation?

1. MAC Amplified Lipstick - 108 Dubonnet - Best for Bold Red

MAC makeup is synonymous with quality, so it’s no surprise that MAC Amplified Lipstick takes first place in our pick of the top 10 lipsticks. Colour 108 Dubonnet is a fabulous choice for a bright, bold shade of red that will make you feel Parisian-chic - wherever you are in the world. Pair with a simple lined eye for effortless glamour.

2. Perricone MD No Makeup Lipstick SPF15 - Red - Best for Natural Red

We love Perricone MD for its range of makeup infused skincare that combines nourishing ingredients with gorgeous shades of colour. Including neuropeptides, hyaluronic acid and SPF15, lips are moisturised, protected and given a subtle sheen. Because of its sheer colour, this red can be reapplied throughout the day in the same way as a balm, without worrying about too much pigment.

3. MAC Retro Matte Lipstick - 701 All Fired Up - Best Bright Pop

When ordinary colours just won’t do, MAC Retro Matte Lipstick is the must-have range for expressing your fun side. With vibrant hues inspired by decades past, these feel-good lipsticks are sure to make you smile. We love 701 All Fired Up, a shade of shocking pink reminiscent of bubblegum and eighties discos, in the best possible way.

4. Laura Mercier Rouge Essentiel Silky Creme Lipstick - Plum Fatale - Best for Satin Finish

Vivid enough to last up to six hours, with a creamy, lightweight satin finish, Laura Mercier Rouge Essentiel Silky Creme Lipstick offers everything you need in just one coat. With Mediterranean Sea algae extract, lips stay hydrated and pigment stays in place, without bleeding, drying, feathering or fading. The range includes well over two dozen colours, but Plum Fatale reigns supreme with its deep sultry tone that will complement any evening look.

5. Perricone MD No Makeup Lipstick SPF15 - Original Pink - Best for Sheer Colour

All the benefits of a hydrating lip balm, with the addition of hyaluronic acid, SPF15 protection and a sheer gloss of colour, Perricone MD No Makeup Lipstick SPF15 in Original Pink is the epitome of “your lips but better”. The subtle shade defines and accentuates your lips without weighing them down, and the solid-to-serum formula moisturises and plumps for a healthier natural pout.

6. MAC Matte Lipstick - 616 Taupe - Best for Nude Lips

When it comes to nude lipsticks, finding just the right shade can be a struggle. Too light you look washed out, too dark and you miss out on that perfect nude aesthetic. Enter, MAC Matte Lipstick 616 Taupe. In a heavenly neutral hue, 616 Taupe creates the perfect nude lip using natural tones to create a deep colour without a hint of the pink, peach or white undertones that so often make their way into “nudes”. This will be the one you reach for time and time again.

7. Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick - Metro - Best for Super Matte

If you’re on the search for a matte lipstick that delivers on its promises, Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick by Laura Mercier is what you’ve been waiting for. The MACcolour-rich formulation creates a completely flat matte finish that is still creamy and long-wearing. With precise pen application, colour Metro is a sweet-as-candy hue, perfect for Spring and Summer weekends.

8. Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick - Cool Brown - Best for Brown Hue

A great brown lipstick is hard to find, with many erring too far on the terracotta or purple side. Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick has a well-earned place in our Top 10 with Cool Brown, the natural lipstick shade we all need in our life. Perfectly balanced, this ultra-matte shade is richly pigmented and is the best brown we’ve tried in a very long time. If you’ve always been tempted to try a brown lip, but haven’t found “the one”, this is a must.

9. NARS Audacious Lipstick - Annabella - Best for Plumping

Turn heads with NARS Audacious Lipstick in a range of daring red, pink and purple shades. Full coverage with a satin-smooth finish, micro-sized lipid spheres and portulaca extract combine to hydrate skin and plump the skin to prevent feathering and bleeding, while white mushroom extract improves radiance. We love the shade Annabella, a bright red with soft pink undertones.

10. Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick - N°17 Flash Coral - Best for Shimmer

Luxury is par for the course with Givenchy, and the stunning Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick is no exception. With light-reflecting particles, each shade has a satin finish with a natural, understated shimmer. N°17 Flash Coral subtly combines traits of pale pink and coral to create a flawless easy-wear colour that will never go out of style.
