10 most favorite lipsticks of all time
ROUGE DIOR – 999
2013 marked the 60th anniversary of Rouge Dior. This lipstick line is still reigning on the women's makeup table, but red has become the best-selling one of Rouge Dior under the number 999. When he came to the beauty kingdom, Christian Dior decided to give birth to his first lipsticks. The designer particularly devoted his attention to red lipstick, claiming that this energetic color belonged to all women.
MAC RUBY WOO
Today, we can easily name ten major brands in the makeup industry. But twenty years ago, MAC was almost exclusive in the hearts of every woman. MAC Ruby Woo debuted in 1999 and has become one of the most loved red lipsticks worldwide. It was estimated that four Ruby Woo lipsticks were sold globally every minute. For nearly two decades, the lipstick has become the best friend of many women, the indispensable icon of MAC.
REVLON FIRE & ICE
Women fell in love with red lipsticks thanks to Fire & Ice. Back to the history of the 1950s, Revlon had a successful marketing campaign, marking a milestone in the history of red lipstick. With just two pages, one side is the picture of charming supermodel Dorian Leigh and the other is a list of questions with tittle "Are you made for 'Fire & Ice'?", Revlon drew women into the journey of exploring and testing this addictive color.
CLINIQUE ALMOST LIPSTICK – BLACK HONEY
Lipstick for every skin tone does not just appear recently. 47 years ago, Clinique already had Black Honey. This lipstick has always been on the bestseller list for nearly five decades. The light shade - which is the combination of red, green, orange and yellow - can blend in with your natural lips, creating a new, unique color.
CHANEL ROUGE ALLURE INTENSE LONG-WEAR LIP COLOUR – PIRATE
No one other than Coco Chanel was the inspiration for Pirate. This quite strong name actually represents the powerful red, symbolizing the most influential woman in fashion. Along with the famous perfume Chanel No.5, the attractive shade of Pirate has made the name for the cosmetics line from this fashion house.
GUCCI AUDACIOUS COLOR-INTENSE LIPSTICK – ICONIC RED
Without a long history, the lipstick color of Gucci still has such haughty name, Iconic Red. Its color is still the popular red pleasing all women, but the lipstick has more classy appearance with luxurious and noble carved design.
TOM FORD LIP COLOR – BRUISED PLUM
Not red, Tom Ford's best-selling lipstick is actually the plum color of Bruised Plum. This seemingly picky color tone has been compensated by an irresistible soft, smooth formula, which gives the lips extra fullness.
NARS SEMI MATTE LIPSTICK – SCHIAP
Schiap’s pink tone was inspired and named after the fashion legend Schiaparelli. This was the color that associated with Elsa, making her such unforgettable woman who could compete with Coco Chanel.
GUERLAIN ROUGE G DE GUERLAIN JEWEL LIPSTICK COMPACT – GILDA
It is not the lipstick with the best formula, but certainly the most stunning design must belong to Guerlain. Perhaps this lipstick is selling well because it can capture the heart of every woman at first sight. It is not merely a lipstick. Guerlain has created a fascinating jewelry that can attract every look.
DOLCE & GABBANA CLASSIC CREAM LIPSTICK – SCARLETT
Dolce & Gabbana's lipstick has simple yet extremely impressive design, which is really understandable as it came from one of the top fashion houses worldwide. In the spring fashion weeks of 2018, Scarlett has contributed to taking the catwalks by storm by appearing on the lips of countless models.
