National Lipstick Day is July 29. In honour of the occasion, we had each member of the ELLE Canada team share the lip products they can’t live without.

Vanessa Craft, Editor in Chief

Dior Lip Glow in 001 Pink ($45), at

“I don’t wear a ton of lip colour but I love this because it brings out the colour in your lips, but is not a lipstick.”

Victoria DiPlacido, Beauty Director

Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint in Uncensored ($24), at

“Super easy to apply and it stays put all day. The colour is also perfection.”

Jacquelyn Francis, Managing Editor

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Jam ($26), at

“I like a darker shade of lipstick because lip colour is often the only makeup I’m wearing! I’m a Bite Beauty devotee—knowing the ingredients are good for you makes me feel better about reapplying.”

Elaine Jyll Regio, Fashion & Market Editor

Chanel Rouge Coco Flash in 53 Chicness ($53), at

“This product rekindled my love for lipstick. I love how nourishing it feels and the subtle colour perfectly complements any look!”

Jed Tallo, Art Director

Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 ($13), at

“This or the Blistex lip balm are my go-to’s.”

Patricia Karounos, Associate Editor

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer ($18), at

“I don’t usually wear makeup but this lip gloss is so flattering and super moisturizing, as well. Plus, if it’s good enough for Rihanna…”

Erica Ngao, Fashion Editorial Assistant

Glossier Play Vinylic Lip in Disco ($20), at

“I like this lipstick from Glossier because it’s super easy to apply and even though the finish is glossy, the colour stays on for a long time.”

Jessie Ho, Beauty Editorial Assistant

3CE Glass Lip Color in #903 Glass Rosy ($24), on

“Glass skin who? This product combines the best of a lipstick and a lipgloss and manages to be somehow sheer yet pigmented at the same time. It’s the perfect everyday colour.”

Christina Tourloukis, Editorial Intern

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk ($39), on

“This is the best because it flatters every skin tone, lip shape, and goes with basically any makeup look. Plus it’s not too matte, which is key for me.”

Nicole Ayala, Editorial Intern

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Crème Cup ($23), on

“I always reach for this! It makes my lips look plumper and it’s not too out there, but you can still tell that you’re wearing lipstick.”

Donna Militar, Design Intern

Bare Minerals Moxie Plumping Lip Gloss in Spark Plug ($24), at

“I get compliments all the time when I wear this lip gloss! I can mix it with any other colour I’m wearing, and a lot of my friends have tried this and I’ve noticed it matches nearly any skin colour.”
