We’re here in 2021, buying everything we can get our hands on from Amazon. What we’ve discovered is that buying lipstick online can be a terrifying experience. It’s one thing to buy some eyeshadow or a makeup case, but it’s a bit different when you’re putting it on your lips. You don’t get the chance to test the color or take a close look at your product. You don’t get to see what it smells like (which may seem weird, but is an important element in lipstick purchasing for yours truly). You may be finding yourself sans lipstick after nearly a year of pandemic. But you can still buy your favorite lipstick brands online, and do it without worrying for a minute.
That’s because here at Magiquiz we have the secret sauce that will help you find the most popular lipstick brands online. We’ve combed through all of Amazon to pull the top lipstick brands that you can trust. Even if you can’t get to the store, these are names that you know are going to be quality. And you don’t even have to go looking to find them yourself! They’re all right here for you to peruse.
We’re talking NYX, we’re talking Lime Crime, we’re even talking about upscale brands like Estee Lauder. Whether you’re a big-budget spender or prefer your drugstore brands, we’ve found the ones you can trust on Amazon. So don’t let staying home keep you away from the best lipstick brands that you know and love.
So what are you waiting for? You may not have parties to hit, but you still want to look your best. Let’s find you the lipstick of your dreams.

L’oreal Paris is one of the top lipstick brands around, and I’m so happy that I found this listing with tons of their lipstick options on Amazon. It splits up the color options by color family so you can easily find the shade you’re looking for. No matter which color you get, this fabulous lipstick goes on smooth and leaves you with a subtle scent for the day.
If you prefer a liquid lipstick, one of the best brands on Amazon is Maybelline. Their formula is a lovely matte that comes in plenty of colors for any occasion. It also gives you a nice moisturizing feel on your lips and stays all day. Seriously, check out this review: “I love this lipstick. I fell asleep with it on and it stayed on all night. It has amazing pigment and dries within about 5 minutes. As a busy mom I probably won’t try another lipstick!”
If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t want to shell out for makeup but still wants a good lipstick brand, you’re looking for Wet’n’Wild. It’s a fraction of the cost of the higher end brands (seriously, where else would you get lipstick for $2?), but it’s still high quality. It’s creamy in texture. It stays on. It has plenty of color options. It’s just good.
NYX is one of my go to brands for any makeup. I particularly like that their lipstick line has a variety of bolder colors, including purples, grays, and even a deep deep brown. Many people like to use NYX shades as dupes for more expensive brands and there’s a good reason: it’s a sensible cost but the product is high quality.
Lime Crime is a vegan lipstick brand that has something of a cult following. People love Lime Crime. It has a delicate vanilla scent for a sense of luxury and has great color pay off. The finish is truly matte and often gives you a bold look. If you want to pamper yourself with a top of the line lipstick brand, this is it.
Revlon is a classic brand that puts out high-quality, classic lipsticks. You’re going to find shades here that are easy to wear and good for any situation. These are beautiful, creamy lipsticks that go on smooth but aren’t super smudgy.
There’s a reason that when you think makeup you think Covergirl: it’s one of the best brands out there. People are so committed to Covergirl that you can find reviews for this product in which people have searched the internet over trying to find their exact favorite shade. If you want to fall in love with your lipstick, buy Covergirl.
Almay is a brand that has plenty of fun options for your lips, but I particularly like their Go Wild series because it has colors you won’t get anywhere else. For someone who likes their makeup a little out there (like me), this is fantastic. It has blues, silvers, purples, golds, bright orange…you name it, they’ve got it. Plus they also have a gorgeous line of glosses that come in amazing metallic shades.
Burt’s Bees is a well-known brand for chapsticks and balms, but you may not know that they also have lipsticks and lip tints that are fantastic. I love these lippies because they start with the moisturizing power of Burt’s Bees and then gives you lovely color too. Some lipsticks give you a bit of a greasy feel, but this one absolutely never will.
If you want a truly top brand lipstick, Laura Geller is it. One swipe and it’s on for the day. It gives you a lovely even color that doesn’t bleed or smudge. This is the real deal.
When I want to treat myself, I go with Urban Decay. They’re known for color and their lipsticks are no exception to that rule. You get a ton of color payoff from just a little bit of their lipstick. I like to pair it with their All-Nighter Setting Spray because my makeup goes nowhere once I’ve got that spray on.
I love a good set of lipsticks and this one from MAC is fantastic. I’m the kind of person who doesn’t wear makeup every day, so having a variety of smaller tubes is great for me. Of course MAC also has plenty of full size lipsticks you can snag once you’ve found your favorite in this mini set.
Rimmel is a solid brand that will give you a quality lipstick at a reasonable price. As one reviewer said “The formula is extremely comfortable and almost moisturizing. Unlike matte lipsticks, this formula does not cling to dry patches or wrinkles in the lips. The formula is a satin finish on the lips.” If you want a daily wear lipstick, Rimmel is a great choice.
Estee Lauder is a wonderfully high end brand that creates gorgeous lipsticks you’ll love. Lucky for you, they’re more affordable online, so you can find the shade you love and stock up. The reviews confirm: “High end lipstick. Lovely color and long lasting. Recommend.”
These metallic options from Too Faced are absolutely gorgeous and amazing for partying. It’s not quite as high-end as some of the most expensive options on the list, but it still has a high-quality feel that will leave your lips happy. Plus it stays creamy and moisturizing for a very long time.
Clinique is a classic, and that’s for good reason. It’s a high-quality lipstick brand that will do what you need it to do and more. This is a fantastic option if you want something fragrance and allergy free. Add that to the smooth, creamy texture and it will feel wonderful all day long.
If you’re on a budget, the brand you want is 100% e.l.f. You cannot beat these prices, and while e.l.f. will never stand up against a truly high end brand, it is a solid choice for everyday wear. It’s got a smooth application that isn’t drying, and even if it doesn’t last all day at a mere $3 a tube, it’s not a big deal to reapply once or twice.
I love a good liquid lipstick, and Stila is a fantastic brand if you do too. Check this review: “Nothing keeps my lips moist and last more then 30 min. EXCEPT THIS!!!!! its been on allllll day and through 3 meals!!!” Now that’s a liquid lipstick I can get behind.
Butter London is a brand you may not be familiar with but it’s one you should be. It’s moisturizing without smearing. It lasts ages without drying. It gives you a nice plumping effect for full, gorgeous lips. It’s definitely a brand to watch out for.
Bare Minerals tells you what to expect in the name: no harmful ingredients, no nasty chemicals, just the quality minerals. If you have sensitive skin, Bare Minerals is a solid brand that will leave your face happy and healthy day after day.
