A makeup look without lipstick is like ice cream without the cherry on top — both provide the final and necessary touch that brings everything together. Like ice cream, lipstick comes in many different flavors: aka finishes, textures, shades, and applications, so if you don’t like one, there’s always another option out there for you.
TikTok is constantly showcasing new viral beauty products to try, especially when it comes to all things lipstick, lip gloss and lip liner. So, in honor of National Lipstick Day, we’re sharing four TikTok-approved lipsticks from L’Oréal Paris that deserve a spot in your beloved makeup bag. These are the kind of lippies that will change your life (aka your makeup routine) for the better, and you don’t have to feel one ounce of guilt about buying a couple (or all of them) because L’Oréal Paris keeps things affordable and provides products with peak performance. Happy lipstick shopping!

5 Lipsticks to Shop for National Lipstick Day
Whether you like things matte and velvety or glossy and hydrating, here are five lipsticks every makeup lover can indulge in for National Lipstick Day.
Velvety, matte color that lasts and doesn’t crackle or feel dry on the lips actually exists, and this lipstick is all the proof you need. Part of the vibrant Colour Riche family, this slim bullet lipstick includes hyaluronic acid to provide a hydrating, comfortable finish that doesn’t flake or dry out throughout the day. The formula resists transfer, feathering and smudging, plus it has a lightly blurring texture and powdery matte finish that makes the lips look and feel good.
ICYMI: This liquid lipstick is a new-generation formula, infused with hyaluronic acid for a comfortable, long-wearing finish that doesn’t feel crackly or desert-dry on the lips. In 12 shades, from ruby red to corally pink, the whipped texture feels lightweight and lightly blurs for a bold, plump and effortless lip look. We love it, and we’re in good company because L’Oréal Paris Global Ambassador, Kendall Jenner does, too.
So you like glowy, hydrating lipstick? Look no further than this lipstick-meets-lip balm hybrid; the lightweight formula provides a hydrating finish like your favorite lip balm and rosy color like your favorite lipstick. Formulated with pomegranate extract that provides a fruity smell and reduces the appearance of premature aging caused by sun damage, after just four weeks of use, your bare lips feel softer and smoother. It’s easily an instant add-to-cart for everyday wear, and you don’t need a mirror to apply it because it goes on like lip balm.
Bold color meets a smooth, satin finish with the Les Nus lipstick line. The formula is richly pigmented and feels comfortable on the lips, while it resists transfer and smudging for all day wear. In 12 shades, there’s something vibrant to suit all your moods, from berry pink to nude pink to red pink. TikTok is not shy about their love for this lipstick; the fan-favorite is Nu Impertinent because it’s a very close match for a luxury lipstick that costs four times the price.
All hail a good, ol’ fashioned satin lipstick with a traditional bullet applicator. This drugstore staple comes through for any occasion: It’s hydrating on the lips thanks to nourishing argan oil and vitamin E, it comes in 52 to shades to suit almost all skin tones, and it doesn’t bleed or feather. Buy four for the price of just one luxury lipstick because you can never have too many options.
