Makeup lovers, get ready because National Lipstick Day is fast approaching. On July 29 (Sunday) the whole world will be celebrating their love for lipstick. Don’t forget to wear your favorite shade or try something new and bold. You can also drop by a few shops and buy new tubes to add to your collection. If this is something you’re planning to do, we wanted to give you a list of local brands to support. Believe it or not, there are many Philippine-made lipsticks out there that you might not know of yet. So celebrate National Lipstick Day with these picks.
Pili Beauty Lipstick in Latte
Just like their other products, Pili Beauty’s lipstick is also infused with pili oil. This ingredient will help moisturize your lips so you’re not left with a flaky layer. They come in 10 different colors. Latte is a mix between a brown and red shade. It’s a deep rich color perfect for a first date. Available at G-Stuff, Power Plant Mall.
blk Cosmetics All That Feels Velvet Lip Cream in Stylish
Give the matte finish a break and try out these velvet lipsticks from blk. There are three shades with Stylish being a peach color. These are also infused with vitamin E and camellia oil, which will condition your lips. The velvet finish will also leave your lips creaseless throughout the day. Available at Watsons branches.
Colourette Colourstick in Chocolat
Looking for the right nude shade? Try Colourette’s Colourstick in Chocolat. It has a natural hue that is a mix of pink and brown. Enriched with collagen, shea butter, and grapeseed oil, not only will it hydrate your lips but it also has a plumping effect. Available at TriNoma Mall.
Careline Lippie Lipstick in Best Friend
You don’t have to splurge on lipstick and Careline understands that. So, you can cop their lipsticks for just P95. Pick from their six shades, including Best Friend, which is a bold red color. Oh, and they’re chocolate-scented too. Available online.
Human Nature ColorCreme Lipstick in Pink Smoothie
Local brands are also about using natural ingredients. If you support that cause, pick up Human Nature’s ColorCreme Lipstick. It has a creamy consistency that glides so smoothly on the lips. For something you can wear to work, try Pink Smoothie, a light pink shade. Available at Beauty Bar branches.
Slay Matte Creme Lipstick in Catherine
A vampy plum lipstick shade is also something you should have in your collection. Slay’s has a matte finish but still moisturizes your lips. Wear this on a night out, special event, or when you just feel like making a statement with lipstick. Available online.
Pink Sugar Creamy Matte Lipstick in Royals
My personal favorite lipstick shade is purple, so I had to include one in this list. Pink Sugar’s Royal lipstick is a vibrant purple shade with a matte finish. These are also infused with vitamin E and shea butter for moisture. If you don’t already have a purple lipstick, try this one. Available at SM Makati.
