2016 Makeup Favourites: Best 10 Lipsticks Of The Year

Did you have a good Christmas? I had the time of my life, and came away with better loot than I have had in a while. Swag included a Coloured Raine eyeshadow palette, a 40x jeweller's loupe, new trainers, books, a new jacket, and more. But all that is for another time; I'm too lazy to take photographs today.
Now that the year is almost done, I thought I would talk about my favourites - this year has clearly been all about liquid lipsticks, with brands coming out with new, non-drying formulations. I hope the trend continues well into 2017!

Scroll down for deets on 10 of my favourite lipsticks from 2016. 

Here are the best 10 lipsticks of the year.

Huda Beauty Lip Matte Liquid Lipsticks in Icon and Trophy wife

Reviewed here. Top marks for these. They smell good, are very lightweight and runny, stay on beautifully and don't dry as much as the other matte liquids listed. 

Beauty Bakerie Lip Whip in Versailles

Reviewed here. Whipped mousse texture, which is what makes these different. Versailles is the perfect subtle pinky-neutral shade. 

Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme in Cassis

Reviewed here. Smells of tropical fruit. Started the light, not-flat-drying liquid lipstick trend which has been all the rage through 2016. I also recommend Dulce de Leche and Petale de Rose.

By Terry Terrybly Velvet Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Cappuccino Rose

Reviewed here. Velvet, yes, but not matte. These dry satin.

Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 501

Not reviewed yet because I'm USELESS. If I had to pick one shade to wear for the rest of my days, it would be this one. It is the PERFECT dusty rose. Is not matte, but satin-matte. Lasts longer than bullet lippies but not as much as the liquids that finish matte, of course.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Hot Lips in Secret Salma

Reviewed here. Shade-wise, I prefer last year's Amazing Grace to the Hot Lips range, but of the latter, I prefer Secret Salma - it's mauve. 

Hourglass Femme Rouge Lipstick in Mural

Reviewed here. My favourite bullet lipstick of 2016. Also, my current favourite creamy lipstick. Love, LOVE this shade.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Ravenswood

Unreviewed so far out of sheer laziness and ineptitude. If you like dusty rose lipstick, go for this one - not Rush (a tad too peachy); not Rapture (a tad too plum). 

YSL Baby Doll Kiss and Blush in 10 Nude Insolent

Reviewed here. You get a generous 10ml; I ignore the cheek part and use this as a lip colour. It is neither matte nor long-wearing, but is a lip lacquer, a la Rimmel Apocalips. I like it far more than the much-hyped YSL Glossy Stains.
