5 Must Have Lipsticks

In honour of National Lipstick Day, we thought it would be a great idea to compile a little list of lipsticks that you definitely should try if you haven’t already. With a mix of high-end and pharmacy brands, there’s a lipstick for every budget.

LA Girl Matte Lip Color

Available at Dischem Pharmacies for only R49.95, this lipstick is a favourite because it has a beautiful matte finish, without the drying feeling. It also comes in a range of adventurous colours, including grey, black and navy blue! Check out Nubia Silver’s mini tutorial on how she uses this lipstick to create her signature wine stained lip.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick

The Maybelline Colour Sensational is a creamy lipstick that’s about to get a whole lot better – adding to the existing shades of nudes, pinks and reds, the Colour Sensational collection is about to get a whole lot better with the Loaded Bolds. For the same R129.95 at Dischem and Clicks pharmacies, you can get bold blues, jet blacks and bright white lipsticks too.

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick

With 30 shades to choose from and the option of matte or metallic colours, Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick is definitely something that you should put on your wish list. At only R290.00, you can see if lipstick truly is your vice. Shop it online here or in Urban Decay stores!


When talking about lipsticks, we have to pay homage to a local brand that makes incredibly long-lasting, light-feeling and matte yet not drying liquid lipsticks – and all for R180.00! ConnieTransform has a colour for every mood, and you can order from here.

MAC Cosmetics 

Of course, we had to pay homage to the brand that probably introduced us to the luxury of lipsticks. Most women can testify that when you think of lipsticks, you probably think of MAC. With colors like Ruby  Woo and Candy Yum Yum earning cult status globally. These days, they’ve expanded to include limited edition collections like Fruity Juicy and they have their own range of liquid lipsticks, but we will always think of their satin, lustre and matte lipsticks as our holy grail for only R240.00.
