This look is all about the lips, so be sure the rest of your makeup doesn’t overpower your powerful pout. Keep things simple with a bit of mascara and flawless skin — and then let your lips shine! We’ve rounded up a few lipsticks that will really make your pout stand out.

Lime Crime Retrofuturist Opaque Lipstick
If anyone knows how to create bold, notice-me-in-an-instant colors, it’s Lime Crime. Believe it or not, this is one of their tamer shades!

For starters, we love the unique shape of this balm. The oversized sphere garners comments every time we pull it out of our bag — and, truth be told, we love when people notice our beauty products. We’ve honestly never seen another lip balm that looks like this, which means it immediately skyrocketed in our esteem.
Add to that the fact that the balm really and truly works … and we’ve got a gem on our hands! (Or lips, as the case may be.) It’s packed with antioxidants, zinc, shea butter, jojoba oil, and Vitamins C and E to moisturize, condition and nourish lips from morning until night. It even helps to prevent bacterial contamination, relieves cold sores and reduces chapping on your pretty little pout!
The delicious tangerine taste really leaves, well, a good taste in our mouths. And at under five bucks a pop? You can’t go wrong!
The eos Medicated Tangerine Lip Balm Smooth Sphere retails for $3.49 at drugstore.com.
This lipgloss is super moisturizing and hydrating, promising to condition lips for up to 12 hours. And that’s fairly unheard of in a gloss! Time-release Lipid Moisture Complex and Retinal, combined with microfine diamonds, bring a radiant and glittery finish to any lip look.
We love layering these glosses on top of other glosses or lipsticks — especially Solitaire, a gorgeous peachy pink that looks amazing with every single skin tone.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to bring on the bling.
Sally Hansen Diamond 12 Hour Lip Treatment retails for $5.99 at walgreens.com.
