The Best Lipsticks

Shoppers Choice:

Milani Color Statement Lipstick

Shades: 42

Highlights: Under $5; infused with nourishing vitamins A and C to soothe lips; cruelty-free

“This lipstick is wonderful. I became a loyal fan and customer of Milani lipsticks over a year ago. I tried other high end and drugstore lipsticks, but Milani lipstick has been my favorite because the texture is so moisturizing, not sticky, it’s color and moisturing lasts all day on my lips and the lipstick itself is so pretty. All the colors I’ve bought are beautiful and look great on my lips. I won’t buy any other lipstick anymore.” – Jessica

“I was recently drawn to this lipstick because of the Josie Maran name behind it, because I’m not much of a lipstick girl– I need my chapstick! But this is so hydrating and pretty, I barely feel it and it doesn’t dry out my lips or make any lip flakes stand out. Josie Maran’s signature argan oil products are so moisturizing, and the tube is so pretty on my vanity!” – Morgan
