No more second-guessing your power pout. These highly pigmented, hydrating lipsticks are engineered to provide luscious color that lasts. Plus, they've been meticulously formulated to flatter a broad range of skin colors. Here are five lipsticks we're loving right now.

1. Maybelline New York Made For All by Color Sensational Lipstick

This lipstick line is all about inclusivity. Its seven universally flattering shades were tested on 50 different skin tones, so you can pick a shade, any shade, and know it'll be a winner. The price is right, too.

2. Origins Blooming Bold Lipstick

Interested in giving more botanical beauty products a try? Waxes and oils from flowers infuse this Origins lipstick, and it's available in 24 gorgeous shades. (Now that's some serious flower power.)

3. Aveda Feed My Lips Pure NourishMint Lipstick

There's an art to finding a flattering shade of lipstick, and it doesn't just boil down to skin tone. Aveda's NourishMint Lipstick line removes the guesswork by offering recommendations for every hair color. This cool berry pink shade will complement brunettes with neutral or ash tones.

4. Shiseido VisionAiry Gel Lipstick

Swipe on a nourishing lipstick to instantly look more awake and ready to take on the day.  The 15-percent-water formula gives the color extra glide and adds hydration that'll last through a morning of back-to-back meetings.

5. Mary Kay Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick

Love the look of matte lipstick but not the drying effect? A semi-matte formula offers the best of both worlds. This lipstick has a velvety texture and it conditions with sunflower seed oil and jojoba oil.
