I mean, I love to try different nail polish, concealer and pencil eye liners but yuh see lipsticks? It's like no order is complete with getting a new one. It's a legit problem. That's why I think you can trust our opinion on our Moden Cosmetics formula; we've tried a lot of lipsticks. A lot.
If you're in the market for getting some new lippies - at a discount - here are few of my formula recommendations.
NARS Audacious - $32USD
Fo sho! Pigmented, smooth, comfortable, pigmented (yes, I have to mention it twice) and they come with more product that the average lipstick. There are 35 shades to choose from on Sephora.com. You'll find something you like. Check out the videos in that post linked above.
Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon - $24USD
I only recently reminded you why these are worth it.
Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched - $22USD
Y'all gotta be tired hearing me talk about these.
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting - $32USD
Another known favourite. Local readers you can get these in Cave Shepherd. Sephora.com has 20 shades avaialble. Be careful with these in extreme heat though; my poor 'Infamous' broke :'(
Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer - $18.50USD
I feel the Estee Lauder machine is bringing various finish ranges to all their other lines (Tom Ford, Clinique, Smashbox) very much like how their baby M.A.C has a plethora of choice. All that to say, if you don't want to spend the money on the aforementioned Estee Lauder formula a satin finish in this Clinique line will give you the same results. The colour range isn't as big though. Local readers, these are also available in Cave Shepherd.
Tom Ford Lip Color Sheer - $53USD
'Paradiso' changed my mind about coral lipsticks and therefore has a special place in my heart.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - $26USD
'Cruella' is a must. Not to mention that lipsticks in this pencil form are very easy to carry around. Sephora.com has 17 colours available.
Ardency Inn MODSTER Long Play Supercharged Lip Color - $27USD
When they say "long play supercharged" they are not kidding. I have 'Twist' and that stains something serious. I find their stubby packaging kinda cute too.
I dunno why they choose to rebrand these with that "oil-in-stick" label - I mean, I know that tinted lip oils are all the rage all of a sudden - but whatevs. If you like sheer lipstick formulas that somehow still manage to retain their pigment this is for you. Plus the packaging is killer; totally display worthy. Crystal put me on to these and she ain't never lied.
'19 Fuchsia in Rage'
Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear - $21USD
While I would prefer to only have these in deluxe sample size, if you like a pigmented lipstick in a liquid form you should give these a try. Sephora.com has 15 shades avaialble. Check out a swatch of 'Melted Fig' here.
Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil - $24USD
There are 19 shaded to choose from so I'm sure you'd find something you like. Unlike the NARS pencils mentioned earlier, you don't have to sharpen these. "Each lip pencil contains the amount of resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine." That's good to know. Check out a swatch of 'Rhubarb' here.
Christian Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour - $90USD
I know, I know. That price is insane but if you're a lipstick junkie who wants to try every formula you understand. And what better time to get it than with a discount right? Right.
I've heard nothing but great things about this formula. There are 18 shades available.
Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge - $22USD
Newly reformulated and repackaged. A local lipstick lover - shoutout to Moncell - said recently that the mattes in this line are must haves. I love getting recommendations from you guys. There are 15 mattes and 31 satins available.
Ilia Lipstick Crayons - $24USD
I've swatched these in Pure Source Barbados and I'm very impressed. Of course we should opt for cosmetics with better ingredients wherever possible and the Ilia brand offers just that.
