In celebration of National Lipstick Day (which happens annually on July 29th), today’s edition of “Fabulous Finds” features 10 beautiful lipsticks I keep on rotation on my vanity. From flattering nudes and pink hues (that are great for everyday wear) to vibrant brights and deep shades (which are perfect for evenings or special occasions), discover ten of my favorite lipsticks and learn why I love each one for different reasons.
Celebrate National Lipstick Day with these 10 Beautiful Lipsticks
While I often opt for neutral colored lipsticks for every day, when I want to get dressed up or have a special event to attend, I love to switch up my makeup and rock a fun colored lipstick. Whether you’re looking for that perfect nude lipgloss (that actually flatters your skin tone) or a bold, playful hot pink lipstick, these gorgeous lipsticks will surely put a smile on your face on National Lipstick Day.
NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss (Crème Brûlée): This budget-friendly drugstore find is a soft, buttery nude lipgloss that glides on easily and adds a shiny finish to your lips. It doesn’t feel sticky (unlike a lot of lip glosses), and it adds just a hint of color, which is perfect for that “woke up like this” look.
Osmosis + Colour Lip Gloss (Bellini): This soft peachy hued lip gloss adds a lustrous high-gloss finish to lips while imparting a beautiful wash of coral-infused color to the lips. Plus the best part is – it’s considered a “clean beauty” product, so this mineral-based lip gloss is safer for everyday wear.
RealHer Cosmetics (I Am Enough): This matte, nude-brown lipstick gives off a cool retro 90s vibe. It’s a great option when paired with smokey metallic eyes and bronzed skin. Plus the message behind the brand (which is all about empowering women to look and feel their best) makes it especially inspiring to wear.
Il Makiage (Matte Doll): This semi-matte, Barbie-doll pink lippie glides on smoothly and lasts for hours. When you’re in the mood for a playful, feminine look – this lip product does the trick.

City Beauty City Lips Matte (Rosy Mauve): For fuller-looking lips with a soft mauve pink finish, this pout-enhancing lip gloss is the way to go. Not only does it last for hours, but it also helps to enhance your pout by making lips look fuller.
Tarte LipSurgence (Craze): From one of my favorite “clean beauty” brands on the market, this matte lip tint not only gives lips a terracotta-colored finish but it also leaves your lips tasting like peppermint. Not to mention – it creates a cooling sensation upon application and contains no harmful ingredients, so it’s great for everyday use.
Make Up For Ever (Rouge Artist Natural): This classic brown-red lipstick creates a sumptuous, silky finish when applied straight from the tube. Plus it adds a subtle sheen to the lips while making lips feel hydrated and soft.
Clinique Chubby Stick Intense (Mightiest Maraschino): This easy-to-apply moisturizing jumbo lip pencil adds a bold bright classic red satin finish to the lips, while hydrating lips immediately upon application. Lips look lustrous while feeling super moisturized and vibrant.
Elizabeth Arden x Reese Witherspoon Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick (Pink Punch): This gorgeous, limited-edition lipstick provides a bright, cheery pop of hot pink color while imparting a semi-gloss finish. Not only is the packaging ultra-luxurious (featuring the classic Elizabeth Arden Red Door design), but the best part is – all the proceeds benefit UN Women, a global champion for women and girls, gender equality, and women empowerment.
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick (Mistletoe): For a dark, sultry look that exudes a vixen-worthy appearance, this deep wine-colored lipstick is a must-have. Pair with a glamorous winged eyeliner for a classic, old-Hollywood look; or wear with dewy, flawless skin for a fresh, modern look. Good to know: Bite Beauty is also considered a “clean beauty” brand (as their makeup line is free of toxic ingredients).
