Why You Need to Add Powder Lipstick to Your Daily Routine

Korean beauty innovations have been making their way onto our top shelves and into our makeup bags for a few years now (think BB Cream, cushion compacts, essences, just to name a few). Now, the latest soon-to-be staple has officially arrived. Get ready to wrap your head around powder lipsticks, whose velvety finish is inspired by a classic makeup artist trick: dabbing pressed powder on top of lipstick to add dimension and staying power.

The lip powders on the market today come in all shapes and sizes (from cushion-tipped tubes to compacts to loose powders) and are ultra versatile, build-able, and most of all, comfortable. Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite powder lipsticks on the market right now.
