Since we’ve already given you the rundown of every L.A. girl’s favorite lip colors, we figured it was only fair to deliver for New Yorkers as well. Because of that, and since I live in NYC, I was dying to know which shades to scout during my next beauty product haul (they happen often).
So our team called up our friends over at Amazon Beauty yet again—they’re basically on speed dial at this point—to get all the details for myself and our East Coast friends. After receiving the information, I personally bought all three. They’re that good. While Angelinos have been adding dusty rose and beige nudes to their cart ever since Kylie Jenner launched her now wildly successful Lip Kit, New Yorkers have been sticking to a palette of slightly moodier colors, just like their disposition.
Behold the three best-selling lipsticks in New York.
This deep plum sheen is a bit different than the usual super-matte, opaque liquid lipstick. New Yorkers prefer an effortless, popsicle-like stain to a super-precise, difficult-to-upkeep lip. It has a slightly shimmery finish and feels really comfortable on the lip.
On the other side of the spectrum, New Yorkers love a classic, glamorous red lip. Achieve a crisp and vibrant color payoff with this honey nectar–infused lipstick that will leave your pout feeling hydrated and ready for an Old Hollywood movie premiere.
This light, pinkish nude is matte and natural-looking (you can even see it applied to different skin tones on Amazon Beauty). It’s perfect for a lazy Sunday breakfast in Brooklyn or teatime on the Upper East side. It’s easy, matte, and absolutely chic. Plus, it won’t come off with each sip of your latte.
While you’re shopping, this is the lipstick you should buy, based on your Myers-Briggs personality type.
