While there’s plenty of chatter right now about when it’s appropriate to pivot your makeup routine from summer to fall, I’d argue the more pressing task is actually designing a beauty bag that makes you look and feel your most radiant, regardless of the season. What kind of products are truly timeless and which are best determined by the temperatures? I’ve got one answer for you: A silky, high-shine lipstick is most definitely the former since there is arguably no wrong time or place to wear this makeup staple.
The trick, of course, is to find a formula that not only delivers that lustrous color but can also last through more than one round of coffee or cocktails. Adequate color payoff is essential here, because who wants to constantly check their application when your friend is in the middle of some scandalous story? So, if you’re ready to pack up that Barbie pink lip gloss in favor of something a bit more classic — without sacrificing an ounce of sultry style — I suggest turning to these eight high-shine lipsticks for your next night out.
