Beauty Roadtest: Lipstick Is Making A Comeback (You'll Fall In Love With These)

Lipstick is huge this year–we’ve seen bright, fearless shades of pink everywhere from the runways to the subway. It’s long been the great equalizer: even if you can’t afford high-end designs, you can make an instant statement in two seconds flat with a great shade. So after years of  lip balm, we’re finally growing up, and ready to embrace the ladylike trend our mothers have been onto for years.

Check out these Estee Lauder Limited Edition Hydra Lustre lipsticks ($19.50). We love how it makes an all-black outfit look instantly chic. (And as you know, we’re all for products that pack a big punch in two seconds or less).

Plus, with Valentine’s Day around the corner, what a cool way to tell someone you love them–whether it’s your best friend, your Mom, or yourself–for under $20? They come in 12 unexpected colors so you can stock up or pass them out to your friends. We’ve been converted.

If you’re not ready to take the lipstick challenge, never fear. We’ve got plenty of fun, new products in Beauty Roadtest we’ve approved, plus fragrances for spring, and best mascara to polish off your look.
