A Guide to Nailing Your Signature Lipstick

Because the power of the right lipstick is endless.

While all types of makeup are beloved for different reasons (for example, mascara [Link to: mascara guide article] tops many desert-island lists), there is something extra special about lipstick. The product that can make or break a beauty look and make you feel like you can tackle the world, lipstick can do it all. Whether it’s a powerful red or an alluring nude, there are no limits when it comes to colour options and textures—so much so that finding the right lipstick for you might actually feel a little overwhelming. But we’re here to help. With its selection of products and a plethora of textures, colours and finishes, L’Oréal Paris is a beloved lipstick brand that carries endless options. Here, we’re breaking down the full lineup of lipstick that L’Oréal Paris has to offer to help you figure out your signature best lipstick —one that you can wear year-round.


If you want a classic lipstick with impactful colour, try: L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche

The brand’s classic Colour Riche collection truly has something for everyone, plus the formula is packed with hydrating oils to nourish lips throughout each wear. With its robust range of colours, you are spoiled for choice when it comes to figuring out which shade will be your new go-to lippie. Housed in an ultra-chic golden bullet with a slated tip for easy application, L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche lipstick also comes in multiple finishes so you can really play around with different textures to see which one suits you best. Along with the original formula, Colour Riche is available in Matte, Ultra Matte, Shine  and Plump and Shine. Which means you can tailor not only the lipstick colour but also the finish to your beauty look.


If you want a lipstick that’s similar to a lip balm, try: L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Balm-in-Lipstick.

Containing 92% natural-origin ingredients, this cushiony lipstick melts onto the lips for a soft wash of colour. This lipstick formula enhances the lips while delivering hydrating ingredients like squalane and pomegranate extract to nourish and soften your pout with every swipe. Available in 10 flattering shades, L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Balm-in-Lipstick has every shade from neutral go-tos (like Nude Heaven) to rich berry tones (try Ecstatic Mulberry). 


If you want an on-the-go crayon, try: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Matte Lip Crayon.

Nothing says ease like a crayon! Perfect for touching up throughout the day, this no-fuss, no-mess matte lipstick is smudge-resistant and doesn’t need to be sharpened for precise application. With its matte but non-drying texture, this long-wearing lipstick delivers saturated colour in a wide pencil tube that you can toss in your bag easy-peasy. Choose from 12 wearable hues, like Little Chilo, a warm, fiery red, or Strawberry Glaze, a soft, natural pink. 


If you want a creamy, satin lipstick, try: L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Satin Lipstick

Infused with precious oils and rich pigments, this collection is the best lipstick for mature skin thanks to its ultra-nourishing formula. Delivering vibrant satin colour, the formula is non-drying on the lips and won’t migrate or feather into fine lines. L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Satin Lipstick comes in 10 gorgeous saturated colours, and there’s a hue for every vibe. Whether you want a neutral pink for everyday, like Pink Petal, the perfect burnt orange for fall, like Radiant Bronze, or a deep purple for a night out, like Pinor Noir, this line of lipstick offers impactful colour in a luxe smooth and creamy texture. L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydrating Core Lipstick is another excellent option for a feather-free long-wearing lipstick that leaves your pout hydrated and happy. Each tube contains a pro-vitamin B5-infused core that adds a moisturizing boost with every application. Choose from 10 flattering colours.


If you want a long-wearing liquid lipstick, try: L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Liquid Lip Colour 

This lipstick is one of a kind, truly! With its thin liquid formula that feels weightless on the lips, this matte lipstick delivers a high-impact hue in an ultra-comfortable, non-drying formula. Two times thinner than a regular lipstick, this liquid formula feels like you’re not wearing anything at all—and it comes complete with a precision applicator that makes painting on the perfect pout a cinch.
