From viral hits to celebrity favourite formulas.

July 29 is National Lipstick Day 2022, and what better way to celebrate than by shopping some of the best formulas to be released so far this year?
One of the most valuable products in your makeup bag, nothing completes a look quite like a good lip colour. Whether you prefer it in the form of a stick, stain (the Fenty Beauty Poutsicle Hydrating Lip Stain is one going viral on TikTok right now) or tint, there’s been plenty of new launches so far this year to choose from.
Before you swipe on your new hue, prep your lips by gently exfoliating and moisturizing. Let the balm absorb in and then perfect your pout. When it comes to technique, the options are endless — define your shape or create contrast with lip liner; layer colours to get the perfect shade; or add some gloss on top of your freshly stained, dry lips.
From liquid formulas to balmy textures, click through the gallery below to find your new perfect shade for National Lipstick Day 2022.
