The Lip Bar has colors just as daring as the creator. Melissa B boldly pitched her brand to investors on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank a few years ago. Though she didn’t get an investment then, she clearly has a winning color range inspired by cocktails and desserts. We love her vibrant lip liquers in Dragon Fruit, Tiramisu Toffee, Candy Land, and Mandarin Marmalade. But don’t sleep on her liquid matte colors in Man Eater, Silent Killer, Crown Me, and Boy Trouble. Her lipsticks, which she calls Signature Cocktails, include beautiful colors like Purple Rain, Merlot, and Coco Cooler.
Well known celebrity make-up artist AJ Crimson doesn’t disappoint when it comes to lips. Standouts from his line of S+M Sultry and Matte Lipstick include No Shade, Sips Tea, Round Two, Slayyed It, Role Play, and Chasing Saturday.
