Best Hydrating Lipstick: Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge, $46

From the classic matte red lip to the trending dual-toned pout, lip makeup has never been more exciting and edgy. So why settle for the same lipstick day in and day out when you can have a whole lipstick wardrobe—and a plethora of lip makeup looks?

Lancôme’s iconic L’Absolu Rouge lipstick now boasts a dizzying array of shades and finishes to cater to this new experimental attitude towards lip makeup. The comprehensive palette of 42 shades ranges from baby pink to berry-red and everything in between. The three finishes—matte, cream and sheer—ensure that there’s a lipstick to suit every mood and outfit.

Try the L’Absolu Rouge in 290 Poeme (Matte), an elegant rosewood shade that is perfect for everyday wear. Or slick on 132 Caprice (Cream), a vibrant red made for a fun night out. More importantly, each lipstick is infused with the patented ingredient, Pro-Xylane, which keeps lips supple, plump, smooth and perfectly hydrated all day. Just click on the emblematic rose icon to release the lippie within, and swipe it on for instant chic.

Available at all Lancôme counters
