There is no better excuse for treating yourself to a new lipstick than the National Lipstick Day. Guess what? The world is celebrating it today, on July 29th. Many brands planned their new lipstick launches around that date so we have a few exciting launches to pick from. Let’s dive into the latest and greatest lipsticks launches! I can’t wait to hear which one of those you’ll be picking for yourself!
The makeup icon Pat McGrath announced the launch of 10 new shades to her award-winning MatteTrance Lipsticks collection. The collection, designed to “unleash every woman — or man’s — inner femme fatale” delivers the ultimate matte finish balanced with major hydration benefits.
Shades: CHRISTY (divine beige nude), BEAUTIFUL STRANGER (coral rose), FLESH 5 (bronzed rose), FEVER DREAM (peach sienna), ELSON 2 (fiery orange-red), EXTRAVAGANZA (magnetic magenta), FORBIDDEN LOVE (ultimate classic red), DEEP ORCHID (plum berry), EXECUTIVE REALNESS (mulberry pink), and GUINEVERE (blooded crimson).

Blurred lips are the new trend for Spring/Summer 2018 and Urban Decay’s latest launch is the best way to introduce the trend into your makeup routine. This innovative lip product comes in 8 shades and provides a weightless, buildable, waterproof finish. People who swatched this product claim that the new UD lippie feels like you are wearing nothing on your lips.
Shades: FADE (medium warm nude), ECHO (mauve nude pink), HALO (warm baby pink), NOISE (berry pink), WAVELENGTH (medium pink purple), BOOM (plum purple with red micro-shimmer), AMPLIFY (deep red), FREQUENCY (bright orange).
Matte lips never go out of style — and this season they are getting even more pigmented than ever. Think: full coverage with just one swatch — no wonder why Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is so obsessed with Laura Mercier’s new lipstick launch. New Velour Extreme lipsticks come in 24 vivid shades and feature an in-build sharpener.
Shades: RESPECT (light beige nude), VIBE (medium beige nude), RUTHLESS (light pinky nude), GOALS (light pink), FRESH (deep pinky nude), FIERCE (chocolate), BRING IT (bluish pink), FAB (neon pink), QUEEN (magenta berry), IT GIRL (fuchsia pink), STYLIN (coral orange), COOL (creamsicle orange), ON POINT (neon orange), FIRE (red orange), DOMINATE (blue red), CLIQUE (reddish pink), POWER (burgundy), CONTROL (brick red), HOT (reddish berry), FATALE (deep berry), BOSS (eggplant purple), DARE (dark purple), EXTREME (deep blue purple), ROCK (dark chocolate).
I can’t think of any other brand who approaches lipsticks with such creativity as Lipstick Queen. Ever since trying brand’s yellow lip balm that turns on your lips into light pink one, I’m the biggest fan. This National Lipstick Day I’m excited to test brand’s latest launch – lip gloss. Especially, because these are 20% off at Space NK!
Shades: BARONESS OF BARE (sheer, nude w/ neutral undertones), EMPRESS OF APRICOT (sheer pop of peach w/ warm undertones), RULER OF ROSE (sheer, petal pink w/ warm undertones), MISTRESS OF MAUVE (soft, subdued mauve w/ neutral undertones), COUNTESS OF COCOA (sheer, neutral chocolate brown), MONARCH OF MERLOT (sheer, buildable berry w/ blue undertones).

There is no such thing as too many lip glosses, right? And if you haven’t tried the glossy lips trend yet, now is the time. Marc Jacobs Beauty just announced the launch of their high-shine finish lip glosses that feature lip care benefits. An interesting fact about these 8 new glosses is that the shade names in the collection are inspired by Marc Jacobs’s favorite music.
Shades: Black Cherry Baby (bronze cherry), Mocha Choco-lata! (pinky nude), Sugar Sugar (champagne-gold shimmer), Uh-Huh Honey (brown sugar shimmer), P(r)each (bright apricot), Candy Bling (red raspberry), Sweet Escape (pink lemonade), One Mauve Time (soft berry-mauve).
