A girl can have a hundred tubes of lipstick. We can go through a thousand different colors and formulations.
But there’s always that one tube we repurchase no matter how many alternatives we can have. There’s that one shade that we just can’t seem to find anywhere else. There are certain formulas that only can be captured by a certain brand.
Here are five of those lipsticks that continue to intrigue, inspire, and instigate our lipstick fetish.

If there’s one cult status lip product from Clinique, it’s this unique formula. Why is it “Almost Lipstick”? Is it a balm? Is it a sheer tint?
