10 Must-Have High End Brand Lipsticks

February 2, 2020

Colour, texture, protection; your lips deserve the best of all of this. Undeniably, the lips are one of the sexiest parts of the body and the ability to finesse them as we please is utterly divine. Lipsticks are like the magic wands that does this finessing duty.

Sometimes, you’re in the mood for a matte bold red lipstick, other times, you feel like ‘pink’; in cases where your eyeshadow colour is already popping, you may want to go for ‘nude’ lips. Most times like me, you just want plain nude lipgloss.

I’ve not seen one lady who isn’t a fan of one these forms of lip makeup. As a matter of fact, many ladies have more than one lipstick. Some ladies choose different colours and texture of lipstick for different weather.

As a matter of fact, if you didn’t know before now, lipsticks aren’t just for beautification, there are actual health benefits of wearing lipsticks. 

Choosing which brands, hence, is very important in lipstick-decision-making so trust me to lend a hand. Here are the top 10 must-have lipsticks, i’m quite sure you’d agree with me if you’re familiar with any one i mention in this list :


1. Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro Lip Stain


Typically, most matte formulas are dry. Who wants dry lips? I mean what happens when you have to throw in that sexy rub your lips together look?

Well, this formula lets you do exactly that without worrying about colour getting out of place. It has a non-sticky texture, velvety and soft; matte but not drying and you definitely agree that it deserves a spot on the top 10 must-have lipsticks. 


2. Sigma Liquid Lipstick in Fable

With this formula, all you need is one swipe, it is that pigment. The formula is hydrating and it has a beautiful satin-matte finishing. It doesn’t take much for a vibrant look that, in addition, is opaque.

Want it to stay on all day? An extra layer is all you need. It’s basically more for less. Best part? It’s budge-proof and not including it on the list of top 10 must-have lipsticks would be a makeup crime.

There are 5 more shades to pick from, I just personally love the shade ‘fable’
