What are good lipsticks formula wise? I hate loving a shade only to find out it looks ugly on the lips :( Any price range, thanks.

I know what you mean, I used to hate lipstick because it always just looked either cakey or unnatural on the lips. I mean red lipstick won’t ever look natural… but you can wear the lipstick without letting it wear you.

Some of my favorite formulas are creamy with a light weight semi matte finish. I want lipsticks to feel weightless on the lips and be almost invisible. I want my lips to still look soft and feminine with lipstick on. I like to dab lipstick on instead of swiping it on because I feel like i can control the color more and it won’t just create a thick layer of product. So if you want that look in a lipstick, these formulas will be the ones for you.

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche. These feel like luxury formulas. So easy to wear and just look pretty on the lips.

Tom Ford Lip Color. I like all of TF’s formulas besides the Lip Foils but I just don’t like the foil look on myself. His lipsticks are creamy while still being lightweight, pigmented and come in modern, trendy shades. Late i’ve been getting more Lip & Boys shades because they’re smaller and more affordable. 

Glossier Generation G Lipsticks. These are just so, so light weight. I forget they’re on when I wear them. Very matte, semi sheer but the deeper shades really go full pigment. 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cremes

Nars Audacious Lipsticks.

Kevyn Aucoin Expert Lip Color. These are ultra moisturizing without being too shiny if you have dry lips! I also love his matte formula.

Burberry Lip Velvet. These go on a lovely satin, velvet matte and come in very cool girl, modern shades. I just think of these as cool girl lipsticks, don’t ask why. 

Charlotte Tilbury Revolution Matte, Hot Lips and Kissing Lipsticks. I love all the CT formulas, the Hot Lips and Revolution shades lean matte while the Kissing shades are more creamy. 

Loreal Colour Riche Lipsticks in the original shades and Exclusives shades (black packaging), This line feels like a more high end line, great affordable option.
