Lipstick may seem like one of the most uncomplicated products in your makeup routine, but if you have dry lips, lipstick can sometimes make dry patches appear even more obvious. The key to soft, smooth lips when choosing a lipstick is hydration. When looking for a dry-lip-friendly lipstick, look for hydrating ingredients like shea butter, jojoba oil, hyaluronic acid, and grapeseed oil. Lipsticks with descriptions such as creamy, satin, or sheer are often good for those with dry lips to provide a hybrid benefit of both hydration and color.
This bold lipstick is long-lasting, creamy, and super pigmented, but most importantly, it’s ultra-hydrating. It comes in two finishes – matte and satin – and eighteen different colors. This lipstick was revamped in the summer of 2019 to be 25% more pigmented and is totally opaque with only one swipe. The brand claims the satin finish lippies will last up to ten hours without a need to reapply and the matte will last up to eight. In both formulas, macadamia oils and sunflower seed wax provide added moisture so this lippie won’t cause red, flakey lips.
