1. Urban Decay Vice Lipstick In Heroine

Pros

  • Highly pigmented
  • Long staying
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Bold and edgy shade of blue
  • Does not dry out your lips

Cons

  • Transfers

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick In Heroine Review

I love this Urban Decay lipstick for so many reasons – the packaging looks sleek and modern. The shade “Heroine” is a beautiful navy blue with subtle cool undertones. It’s a striking balance between edgy and vampy, if you’re into that kind of a look. I applied two layers and achieved a fully opaque finish. It’s easy to apply and feels comfortable on the lips. However, make sure you exfoliate your lips before going in with this lipstick as it tends to cling on to dry patches. It stayed on my lips for about 5-6 hours, which I thought was quite decent. This one’s a great choice for all you beginners to blue lippies!

This shade will flatter all skin tones.

2. Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick In Squid Ink

Pros

  • Long-wearing
  • Settles into a comfortable matte finish
  • Very pigmented
  • Has a pleasant fragrance
  • Does not dry out your lips

Cons

  • Pricey

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick In Squid Ink Review

‘Squid Ink’ by Bite Beauty is a deep midnight blue with a stunning satin finish, and it’s made with 12 edible oils and triple-milled pigments. I must say, this lipstick provides saturated color, is lightweight, and has a citrus flavor made from fresh-pressed fruit. It comes in a simple bullet packaging with a rubberized grey body. I loved its formula – which is creamy at first, but it dries down to a matte finish. I accompanied this with a blue lip liner to get a crisp edge.

This shade will look great on olive, medium, and dark skin tones. If you’re fair-skinned and want to go in for a vampy look, this is an ideal choice.

3. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick In Paint

Pros

  • Extremely pigmented
  • Not very drying
  • Long-staying
  • Smooth and even application
  • Good packaging

Cons

  • A little pricey

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick In Paint Review

I usually steer clear of matte liquid lipsticks as I find them very drying, but that’s not the case with this Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid matte lip. It’s very pigmented, and it glides on smoothly on to my lips. I give it major brownie points for its spectacular wand as it is perfect for shaping your lips. The shade ‘Paint’ is a shimmering matte sapphire and is perfect if you’re looking to break beauty norms and try on something very different. I highly recommend trying this color.

It’s one blue that will look fabulous on fair, medium, and dark skin tones.

  • Long-staying
  • Gives you a comfortable wear
  • Cute packaging

Cons

  • Tends to transfer

Lime Crime Perlees Matte Lipstick In Denim Review

The shade ‘Denim’ from Lime Crime is the perfect shade that bridges the gap between metallic and matte. It leaves you with a soft sheen of dusted pearls, which I loved so much. The packaging is so artsy, and I was very impressed with its high pigmentation and staying power. Although the product is fairly pricey, it’s value for money.

This is one color that would brighten any look instantly and will suit all skin tones.

5. MAC Colour Rocker Lipstick In Blue Bang

Pros

  • Very pigmented
  • Long-staying
  • One-of-a-kind blue
  • Applies easily
  • Buildable color

Cons

  • Slightly drying

MAC Colour Rocker Lipstick In Blue Bang Review

If you’re on the hunt for an electric blue lipstick, your search ends here as MAC’s Blue Bang is indeed bang on. This guaranteed head turner provides a really high color payoff and gives you an opaque finish in a single swipe. The color is buildable, and it has a thick consistency, which can feel a tad bit drying on the lips. However, this can easily be overcome by moisturizing your lips properly, before going in with it.

This shade will look beautiful on fair and dark skin tones as it will provide a striking contrast while imparting a delicate sheen to the lips.

  • Enriched with hydrating mango butter and hyaluronic acid to nourish and volumize lips
  • Unique satin to matte finish
  • Long-staying

Cons

  • Expensive

Dior Rouge Couture Color From Satin To Matte In Visionary Matte Review

I absolutely love this sultry, midnight blue shade in ‘Visionary Matte’. It glides on smoothly and is so pigmented that one swipe gives you an almost opaque finish. I like how it feels on my lips – it’s easy to apply, does not budge or smear, and looks like you just put it on even after 6-7 hours.

The shade will complement every skin tone so well! Whether you’re fair-skinned, medium or dark-skinned, this is one versatile shade.

7. NYX Velvet Matte Lipstick In Midnight Muse

Pros

  • Very pigmented
  • Long-lasting
  • Applies evenly and smoothly
  • Does not budge or smear

Cons

  • Its formula is a little dry

NYX Velvet Matte Lipstick In Midnight Muse Review

This is one of my favorite blue lipsticks, and NYX does a good job when it comes to pigmentation and opacity. Also, if you’re into matte textures, this one nails it. It can be a little drying on your lips, but you need to make sure your lips are well moisturized before application. Two-three swipes gave me a fully opaque finish that lasted for 5-6 hours, and it was quite comfortable to wear.

This is suitable for all skin tones.

8. Kylie Matte Lip Kit In Skylie

Pros

  • Extremely pigmented
  • Goes on nice and smoothly
  • Does not dry out lips too much
  • Smells like cake
  • Complements all skin tones

Cons

  • Quite pricey

Kylie Matte Lip Kit In Skylie Review

Kylie Jenner’s Skylie is perhaps the most attention-seeking lip kit yet. It’s perfect for the Gram or your Snapchat, but if you dare, you might just rock it IRL as well! I was both intimidated and thrilled to try this out, but I did, and I loved its formulation. The lipstick did not dry out my lips like other matte liquid lipsticks tend to do. It has a sweet smell, like cake, which made me love it even more.

This electric blue shade is a little too bold, but if you are on the lookout for this particular shade, Skylie is a great choice – also it complements fair, dark, and medium skin tones well.

  • Does not bleed

Manic Panic Lethal Lipstick In Starry Night Review

If you’re looking for the perfect shade of dark blue, you will love this bold lip by Manic Panic in the shade ‘Starry Night’. It’s super affordable and cruelty-free! This lipstick by celebrity sisters Tish and Snooky comes in a glamorous diamond-etched case. I was impressed with the way the formula felt on my lips.

This sparkly shade of dark blue is great for all skin tones and is perfect for evening wear or a night-out with the girls.

  • Full-coverage
  • High-impact matte lipstick
  • Infused with 20% conditioning oils for luxuriously lush lips
  • Long-wearing
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Tends to transfer

Estee Lauder Mattified Lipstick In The Storm Review

This is a gorgeous teal-blue shade and has a creamy matte finish. It did not dry out my lips and felt really comfortable to wear. One swipe of the formula gives an opaque finish, but two swipes make the color really pop. If you are someone with dry lips, this lipstick will be incredible as it’s very hydrating and you don’t need too many touch-ups.

This is a rather versatile shade that will go with most skin tones. It’s edgy and bold, and if you’re on the hunt for a different kind of blue, this is it.

11. Lipstick Queen In Hello Sailor

Pros

  • Pigmented
  • Contains vitamin E to keep your lips ultra-moisturized
  • Makes teeth appear whiter due to its blue tones
  • Long-wearing
  • Lightweight and comfortable to wear

Cons

  • Pricey

Lipstick Queen In Hello Sailor Review

‘Hello Sailor’ by Lipstick Queen is a blackberry, navy blue sheer lipstick with a hint of deep sapphire. I love its modern and chic packaging. Its formula is a super shiny, moisturizing one. It lasts for about 5-6 hours and leaves a slight stain until you wash it off. Its color is beautiful, and it’s very high-quality. It’s great for dry lips as the silky, luxurious formula applies like a dream.

It will look extremely flattering on dark and fair skin tones.

12. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick In Dreamer

Pros

  • Pigmented
  • Easy application
  • Long-wearing
  • Does not stain your lips

Cons

  • Its formula is a little drying

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick In Dreamer Review

‘Dreamer’ is a neon turquoise shade that looks like it was made for Snapchat. I don’t think I would wear this IRL as it’s very flashy. You need two coats to achieve a fully opaque finish as it’s slightly streaky. This reminded me of the Tarte Lip Paint in the shade ‘Fairytale’. If you’re willing to dive deep into a full-on light blue, go for this but if you have dry lips, make sure you exfoliate and moisturize well.

13. Maybelline Color Sensational Loaded Bold Lipstick In Midnight Blue

Pros

  • Leaves a creamy finish
  • Contains honey nectar
  • Very pigmented
  • Easy to apply

Cons

  • Transfers and is slightly patchy

Maybelline Color Sensational Loaded Bold Lipstick In Midnight Blue Review

Midnight Blue is a dark navy blue, and the color looks really beautiful after two to three swipes. The longevity and texture are both impressive. It’s best to apply thin layers and powder in between layers. It feels moisturizing and is a pretty great option for those with dehydrated lips. It’s also very affordable.

This shade will flatter all skin tones. If you want to go in for a vampy look, this shade will do the trick.

14. ColourPop Cosmetics Lippie Stix In Raw

Pros

  • Satin finish
  • Pigmented
  • Easy to use
  • Cute packaging

Cons

  • Average staying power

ColourPop Cosmetics Lippie Stix In Raw Review

This lippie stix from ColorPop looks like a Sharpie marker. It retails for $5 and has a nice and glossy formula. The shade ‘Raw’ is a bright, light turquoise blue and has a satin finish. It has a slim body tube with a twist-up top. Its formula is quite nice, and it feels comfortable on the lips.

This shade will complement fairer skin tones as it’s a little too bright.

Pros

  • Pigmented
  • Affordable
  • Nourishes and moisturizes lips

Cons

  • Does not stay on for very long

CoverGirl Katy Kat Pearl Lipstick In Blue-Tiful Kitty Review

Covergirl’s lipstick in the shade Blue-Tiful Kitty has been created by Katy Perry. It’s a soft, pearlescent blue with a creamy feel. I like how it’s infused with pearl pigments and makes my lips look fuller and plumper. It’s infused with shea butter and luxurious oils, so your lips feel nourished and moisturized.

This is a lighter shade of blue that will look pretty on all skin tones.

Quick Tips: Wearing And Pulling Off Blue Lipstick

Blue lipstick doesn’t necessarily have to be scary or clownish – you can get it right and pull it off like a boss if you follow a few simple rules.

  • It’s important to pick your shade wisely. Make sure you are fully aware of what type of look you’re going for and then pick the right shade of blue for you.
  • Keep the rest of your makeup minimal – if you’re going for a bold blue lip, don’t take attention away from it by applying a bunch of other stuff.
  • Take your lip liner seriously when it comes to shades like blue – it makes a whole lot of difference to the overall picture.
  • Try to play with effects – a holographic gloss over your blue lip can get rid of the flatness and can make the blue really pop.

Yes, blue lipstick can be intimidating, but if you are confident and know that you look stunning, that’s what matters. Experimenting with new makeup elements is always both fun and scary, but it makes you understand what works for you and what doesn’t. It’s always best to play around with makeup and have fun with it. That was my roundup of the best blue lipsticks. If you have a favorite, share with me in the comments section below.
