6 Berry Lipsticks That Instantly Brighten Your Smile, Even Through a Computer Screen
Add a swipe of any of these gorgeous shades the next time you have a virtual happy hour.
Even if the only time people are seeing you without a face mask on is through your phone or computer, you still want to look your best. And if you opt for a light coverage foundation and minimal eyeshadow, you should definitely go with a bolder lip. Adding a brighter shade to your pout doesn't take any extra time than a neutral hue, and it will brighten up your entire face. Of course, everyone has different skin tones and shade preferences, so we found six lipstick options to please everyone. For a trendy look, try a purple berry, says makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes. Raspberry red is more classic. Here's your guide to the best berry lip colors on the market for every beauty need.
1. Best for a Hint of Color
Get a popsicle-stain finish (minus the brain freeze) and balm-y texture with Revlon's Kiss Cushion Lip Tint. The soft, sponge-like applicator gives lips a hydrating wash of color. The formula is also buildable and you can apply more layers for a richer pigment.
2. Best Glossy Finish
Just like an eye-opening coat of mascara, a swipe of hydrating lip color can make you look ready to take on the day. The 60% oil formula in this lipstick treats lips to gorgeous, glossy color. In other words, your lips will glisten while receiving loads of hydration.
3. Best Matte Finish
This silky-matte shade looks amazing on dark skin tones and packs full-coverage color into a smooth gliding lipstick. Formulated with silky oils to keep lips from drying out, the L'Oreal Colour Riche Ultra Matte lipstick is lightweight and comfortable to wear.
4. Best for on the Go
The rich color payoff that NARS Audacious lipstick has is makeup-pro approved. Its magnetic cap makes it bag-friendly; you'll never have to worry about the ultra-saturated color of this lipstick staining the inside of your purse.
5. Best for Versatility
Get the shine of a gloss, the pigment of a lipstick, and the longevity of a stain with this lip lacquer. Swipe on a single coat for a sheer tint, or layer on more to build up the pigment and shine. If this rosy hue isn't for you, you're in luck: the long-wearing lacquer is available in 30 different shades.
6. Best Moisturizer
Not all berry colors have to be dramatic. If a tinted lip treatment is more your speed, try this lip balm from the ChapStick brand. It locks in moisture and gives lips a hint of color, so it's subtle enough to integrate into an everyday makeup routine.
