A week or so ago, I was searching through my lipstick drawer in search of one shade in particular. While I have well over 50 different lip products, nothing else was quite right. I needed this specific shade. However, upon finding the packaging, I realized it was gone.
Any beauty lover will know, it’s extremely impressive to finish a product (especially when you have quite a bit of makeup). But I managed to do it. It was then I realized, I had only had this happen a handful of times. So I thought I’d share my best of the best in lipsticks.

- NARS lipstick in ‘Dolce Vita’
Nars lipsticks have one of my favorite formulas. They’re very comfortable on the lips, and while they do fade over a few hours, they fade evenly. Dolce Vita is a sheer dusty rose. I tend to wear this over top of a nude lip liner to add a bit of sheen; however, it’s a nice wash of color on bare lips as well.
- Maybelline Super Stay 14 in ‘Please Stay Plum’These lipsticks are extremely underrated in my opinion. I spend countless hours watching YouTube videos, and I’ve never seen anyone talk about this lipstick! The plum color isn’t too dark; it isn’t too light. And there is a golden glitter finely mixed in which adds a nice highlight throughout the day.
- NARS lipstick in ‘Niagra’Niagra is described as a “satin pinking coral” on Sephora’s website. It offers a little more pigmentation that Dolce Vita, but still isn’t heavy. I love this in the summer. It adds a fresh pop of color to your face.
- Maybelline Super Stay 14 in ‘Continuous Cranberry’Unlike the NARS lipsticks, both of these from Maybelline are fairly matte and last all day. With this classic red shade, I rarely have to reapply during the day. They don’t budge. For a drugstore option, these pack a serious punch.
If you’re in the market for trying new lipsticks, definitely give these shades a try. And explore the Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hour lipstick line, because they are amazing and need more attention.
