Looking for the crème de la crème in beauty? Our customers have got you covered! For this year’s edition of Customer Picks, we’re going through the best-reviewed beauty basics of 2017. From MLBB lipsticks to crease-proof concealers, these are the products that any makeup junkie would be lost without.
In the second installment of this 5-part makeup series, we’re tackling every woman’s magic wand: lipstick. While lip tints and liquid lippies have been making exciting waves, the traditional bullet will always give them a run for their money. And it was a magical year for our customers—whether they preferred satin or matte, 90’s nude or Russian Red, scented or scentless! They certainly painted the town pretty in 2017 (as we’re sure you did, too). Below, see the top 20 lippies that made the cut.
