Like all of us, lipsticks come in a magnificent array of shapes, sizes, and hues. So, it’s no wonder that there is an official day dedicated to the pout-perfecting staple—and that day is today, my friends. So, in honor of National Lipstick Day, why wouldn’t we take the time to share our favorite lippies currently lingering in the bottom of our purses?
We know that wading through the stock piles of mattes and glosses out there can get overwhelming. So, crack a smile and kiss smudged lips goodbye with our COOLS editors’ favorite picks:

Mattes tend to leave my lips feeling parched and weighed down by the end of the day. Plus, dryness does not do my tiny lips any favors. But, the MAC Cosmetics Powder Kiss Lipstick stands far above the rest. It’s lightweight, and doesn’t leave your pout chapped or dry, yet stays ultra-pigmented and budge-proof the whole day.

I never leave home without this lipstick. In the tube it’s green, but once you apply, it adjusts to a rosy pink color based on your PH levels. We love science! The formula is also super moisturizing—a godsend for my notoriously dry lips.

I love the Dior Sugar Scrub lipstick! To be honest I think I saw a Bella Hadid commercial with it or something and they got me. It feels really nice and its a nice easy color.
