Top Lipsticks – the most raved collections

Posted on: February 23rd, 2016 by Olena 37 Comments

“Top Products” category features highly raved and hot-right-now products.  Let’s talk Top Lipsticks today :)

 

Clarins Joli Rouge Brillant – Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick

Top lipsticks - Clarins Joli Rouge Brilliant

 

I’m a big fan of Clarins brand, as their products are of a good, high end quality, but at the very reasonable price. So, whenever I want to feel luxurious but not ready to splurge crazy money on products, I often reach for Clarins. Definitely, this brand is thumbs up for me!

Clarins Joli Rouge Brilliant Lipstick Collection is on the market for about 6 years now and it is still highly raved. I mean super highly raved! I’ve never read even one bad review about these lipsticks, which is incredible to my opinion, as often no matter how many positive reviews people leave, there is always some percentage of customers who are not happy about a particular product. But it seems it’s not the case with Joli Rouge Brilliant! Some people even prefer this collection over other more expensive high end brands, like for example Chanel lipsticks.

After reading tons of reviews I’ve come to conclusion that Joli Rouge Brilliant Lipsticks Collection is so popular because it has the perfect combination of 3 features: the texture of a lipstick + the finish of a gloss + the feeling of a moisturizing lip balm. No wonder people buy one shade and then go for more! :)

This spring I’d like to play more with different lipstick tones and to add some trendy shades to my collection, like Clarins Joli Rouge Brilliant in #Raspberry, #Papaya and #Cherry (they sound good enough to eat!) These shades make lips pop, especially against fair and light complexion, and also brighten the skin. I have a feeling when I try at least one of them, it might be my new all-time favorite :)

 

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick

Top lipsticks -YSL Rouge Pur Couture

 

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick Collection was launched in 2010 and over the years it became an iconic collection of luxurious lipsticks. On YSL website I counted 52 shades of red, orange, fuchsia and nude in satin and matte finishes. That is a crazy huge choice!

Talking about the price and colors, as YSL lipsticks are quite expensive, it might be a good idea to invest in a classic color that never goes out of fashion. My choice fell on the red shade #Rouge Anonyme. This color looks so flattering on the lips! According to bloggers’ photos the lipstick does not go into the lip lines at all. I also like its finish after the lipstick settles over some time. They say that this particular color lasts for approx. 5 hours, the formula is non-drying, smooth and easy to apply.

Luminous skin + strong red lip + trendy big eyebrows = you own the day! :) And of course, how could I not mention the heavenly luxurious packaging? It is like a beauty accessory itself :)

P.S From my experience I’ve noticed that when the collection is so big, like YSL Rouge Pur Couture, not all the colors are raved the same. So you may want to make your own research for other colors, just in case. Though, around 80-85% of all the reviews I read about this collection were positive.

 

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes Lipstick

Top Lipsticks - Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte

 

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes Collection was launched at drugstores in fall 2014 and it immediately became very popular due to the high quality of lipsticks. By 2016 the number of shades was increased from 10 to 20 and as people still buy these lipsticks like hot cakes, I won’t be surprised if with time Maybelline will add even more gorgeous colors.

The texture of the lipsticks is not really classic matte that becomes velvet once it is set, but it is more like in between matte and a regular creamy lipstick. However, that’s exactly what the majority of people like about this collection, as often matte lipsticks are quite dry and difficult to apply smoothly, but Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks are soft, creamy, highly pigmented and according to some reviews they last for up to 5-6 hours.

Now when I think of an easy to wear and long-lasting formula + an affordable price, I can’t understand why this lipstick is still not in my makeup case? I think the first shade I’ll get will be #Darlingly Nude, which is a beautiful peachy nude color. Also, as Maybelline often makes offers like “buy 2, get 1 free” (hopefully I’ll be patient enough to wait for it), the other two colors I’d like to get are #Lust for Blush (nice pinky mauve shade for every day wear) and #Divine Wine (beautiful deep burgundy shade).

YSL’s rouge pur couture is one of my FAVE lipstick ranges. They are pretty $$$ but their such great investments because they glide on like a dream and have really good staying power too.

I’m a fan of the YSL Rouge Pur Couture range, though some of the shades needs to be applied multiple times for them to achieve their ‘true’ colour!

i’m definitely a big fan of all of these brands and these shades. I feel like I always find myself reaching for either red, nude or pink, so these are perfect for me. I’ve never personally tried these but they’re definitely on my list.

Lovely picks, darling! <3 I think that YSL lipsticks are just the best – the packaging is absolutely awesome, the formulas are great and the shade selection is just out of this world amazing! I will actually be hosting a little giveaway on my blog soon for a YSL lipstick but shhh. ;) <3 I've never tried any of the Clarins lippies, but after reading your post I'm definietly tempted! I love it when my lipsticks are moisturising and give a glossy finish. <3 Fab post!
