(SPOT.ph) Lipsticks are a girl's best friend. Just one swipe can give you an instant confidence boost! If you've been wanting to add more lippies from local beauty brands, then you're in the right place. There’s one for the Hello Kitty fan, one for the friend who only uses all-natural beauty products, one for the girl who loves keeping up with makeup trends, one for the celeb-obsessed, and more.
Here are 10 lipsticks in the Philippines to add to your makeup kit:
Happy Skin x Sanrio Lipsticks (P599 to P1,299) from Happy Skin
This popular local beauty brand’s Sanrio collab is the ultimate throwback to our childhood. More than the cute packaging (and really, that’s reason enough for us), what we love is that they come in all colors (reds, browns, pinks) and formulations (liquid matte, moisturizing matte, and moisturizing), and don't fade quickly.
Available online, in Happy Skin stores, and leading department stores
ColorCreme Lipsticks (P325) from Human Nature
These lippies have a hint of shimmer, making them perfect for the holiday season. Plus, since colder weather usually leads to dry lips, they’re great because they have the added bonus of keeping lips moisturized thanks to the cocoa butter, sunflower seed oil, passion fruit seed oil, and natural vitamin E in the ingredients.
Available online, in Human Nature stores, and select Beauty Bar stores
Matte Lipstick in Mauvey (P165) from Ever Bilena
Ask any hardcore beauty junkie and they’ll tell you that Ever Bilena’s Mauvey lipstick is legit. This particular nude shade has a cult following, thanks to its ability to give you that coveted my-lips-but-better look. It’s often compared to—even mistaken for—MAC’s Faux lipstick, so now anyone can get that look for a fraction of the cost. Win!
Available in leading department stores
Creamy Matte Lipstick in Desire (P349) from Pink Sugar
In their 17-shade lineup, this one is the most popular. Often described as “something Kylie Jenner would wear” in beauty blog reviews, it’s easy to see why. People have fallen in mauve (Ha! We couldn’t resist) with this
Available in Watsons and SM Department Stores
Lipsticks (P299 to P349) from BLK Cosmetics
With tons of Pinay-friendly shades (Sophisticated is Anne’s fave, I Do is what she wore during her wedding ceremony, and Mon Amour is what she switched to for the reception) and three formulations (lip cream, matte lipstick, and liquid matte lipstick) to choose from, there’s something for everyone on BLK Cosmetics' line. The liquid matte lipstick is famous for being incredibly transfer-proof while the matte lipstick delivers a major color payoff.
Available online, select SM Department Stores, and Watsons branches
Lip in Luxe Matte Liquid Lipstick (P499) from Ellana Cosmetics
Ellana Mineral Cosmetics makes 100% vegan, all-natural mineral makeup that’s perfect for sensitive skin. These highly pigmented liquid matte lipsticks come in 14 gorgeous shades. They feel light as air on the lips but are hardcore transfer-proof; these things can survive a nuclear blast! What’s more, these lipsticks double as cheek tints.
Available online, SM Aura and SM Mall of Asia department stores, Landmark Makati, Alabang, and Trinoma, and Watsons at SM North The Block
Rouge Deluxe Exotique Lipsticks (P499) from Snoe Cosmetics
Buttery matte was an oxymoron until these lipsticks came along. They are as matte as they come

Nude Lips Collection and Fall Collection (P199) from Everyday Love+
Think of Everyday Love+ lippies as the indie darling of homegrown lipsticks. The Nude Lips Collection has seven shades to choose from while the Fall Collection (hurry because they sell out quickly!) consists of two lippies in deeper shades that are perfect for the holiday season. The mousse-like consistency is thin and light, and once dry, completely smudge-proof.
Colors Matte Creme Lipsticks (P599) from Slay Colors
#SlayAllDay in lippies with a dreamy matte-satin finish. These proudly Philippine-made lipsticks are highly-pigmented, so one swipe is all it takes to achieve a major color payoff. Plus, they contain shea butter and vitamin E that keep the lips hydrated even in the colder December weather.
Stannic Matte Lipsticks (P245) from Detail Makeover
It doesn't matter what season it is—a little glimmer and shine is always in order. The Stannic Matte lippies have a chic metallic sheen that’s pretty and party-ready. It’s easy to apply and glides effortlessly on the lips. It also delivers intense color and is kiss-proof.
