When it comes to sky-high price tags in the beauty department, it's usually skincare that takes the cake. But apparently, the makeup world is not that far behind. Luxury brands have developed lip products that are worth the splurge, and here are seven you can still buy today:
1. La Bouche Rouge Lipstick Set
$160 (approx. P8,404), La Bouche Rouge

Matte, luxurious, and sustainable: La Bouche Rouge designed this refillable lipstick to reduce the billions of bullets thrown out every year. At your first purchase, you'll receive a color refill and a case made from high quality calfskin leather. Once used up, you may purchase your shade refill for $37.
2. Christian Louboutin Lip Color
$90 (approx. P4,727.25), Christian Louboutin
After releasing his $50 nail lacquers, Christian Louboutin surprised beauty fans with his luxurious take on lip color. He designed a unique bullet that could even be worn as a pendant necklace thanks to the silk thread it comes with. There are three finishes available in the collection (sheer, satin, velvet matte), and they cost $90 dollars each.
3. Serge Lutens Beaute L'étoffe Du Mat Lipstick
$80 (approx. P4,202), Barneys

For Serge Lutens, matte lipstick could be your best weapon. So he designed one, coming in three powerful shades of red encased in a black tube he describes as "grave-like."
4. Clé de Peau Beauté Lipstick
$65, (approx. P3,414.13), Clé de Peau Beauté

Beyond its unique petal-shaped tip and weighted lacquer case, this lipstick claims to give vibrant color payoff with a semi-matte finish. It contains oils and boasts of a light-reflecting technology, which promises to make the lips appear smoother, more even, and moisturized for hours.
5. Tom Ford Moisturecore Lip Color
$55 (approx. P2,888.88), Sephora

This lipstick has two layers: a hydrating core that deeply nourishes the lips and a colored balm that leaves a natural tint. Besides that, it was made to complement bronzed summer skin with the addition of gold flecks that catches the light. Tom Ford's regular Lip Colors and Lip Lacquers retail for a dollar less than the Moisturecore at $54 (approx. P2,867.62).
6. La Mer Lip & Cheek Glow
$55 (approx. P2,888.88), Rustan's
IMAGE La Mer
La Mer's famous Miracle Broth now comes in a lip and cheek tint, and the glow it promises is what one would expect from using their skincare. This sheer yet buildable formula claims to give the skin a natural-looking flush that looks healthy and youthful.
7. Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Customizable Lipstick
P2,590 (P1715 - lipstick; P875 - case), Sephora.ph
Customize your own lipstick-and-case combination with cult-favorite Rouge G de Guerlain. The case (which you buy separately) comes with a double-mirror and has six designs. The lippie, on the other hand (which you can pair with any of the cases), comes in 30 shades and is made of a creamy and nourishing formula worthy of repurchase. Keep the case and just buy a new bullet when you're done with the first.
