Obianuju’s Top 5 Favorite Lipsticks In Honor of National Lipstick Day

July 29th is National Lipstick Day! In honor of this glorious occasion, here are my top 5 favorite lipsticks.


#5. Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in ‘Girl Gang’ ($24)

The pigment of this plum liquid lip packs a punch, but is so lightweight, it feels like there’s nothing on your lips. Liquid lipsticks don’t have to be a “pain is beauty” situation. This formula is super comfortable and non-drying while also looking amazing.

#4. NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in ‘Subversive Socialite’ ($6.99)

I love to mix this purple shade with Sephora Collection’s Night Bird (#2 on this list) or a black lip liner for a stunning deep purple look.

#3. MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in ‘High Drama’ ($21)

‘High Drama’ is deep dark plum for when you want a bold red lip with some edge. MAC’s Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour line is perhaps my favorite liquid lipstick formula—the color payoff is amazing and your lips aren’t left feeling dry.

#2. Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in ‘28 Night Bird’ ($14)

I’m still waiting to grow out of my teenage angst phase. Until that time comes, I will unapologetically be rocking ‘Night Bird’, a jet black liquid lipstick.

#1. MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in ‘Young Attitude’ ($21)

I don’t think I’ve come across a more unique lipstick color that is also flattering on all skin tones. Young Attitude is a blackened teal for those days when you want all the compliments. The trusty MAC liquid lip formula plus a unique color? It’s a win-win.
