The Only Lipstick You’ll Ever Need

Being a badass is about knowing what you need, knowing what you don’t, and going about your business accordingly. When it comes to lipstick, you just need four: four shades in matte, cream, and sheer finishes that make sense. Like the four directions, four-leaf clovers, the four winds, and the four seasons, these four lipsticks—gluten-free, cruelty-free, and all but one entirely vegan—are all you’ll ever need. Try one, two, three, or all four and see if you don’t agree.

InStyle x Clare V. Holiday Gift Set

This limited edition set includes two lipsticks in shades of your choosing, plus a wallet clutch, created in collaboration with Clare V., to store them or use in your everyday badass life. It’s the ultimate gift for lipstick lovers…that you’ll also want for yourself!

Vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free.

Peachy Keen

A matte lipstick so comfortable, it feels as light as it looks. Pale and perky, Peachy Keen isn’t exactly what we’d call neutral, simply because it isn’t boring. It’s elegant. It’s versatile. Hydrating, with a smooth, velvety texture and a big hit of color. Vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free.

Legend Berry

Legend Berry is one of those lipsticks that you reach for when you’re happy, sad, frustrated, jubilant, bored, pissed off, nervous, or in love. It works for all occasions, every mood, every outfit. A delicate sheen that boosts your natural lip color while hydrating like a lip balm, it’s cushiony, not sticky, and surprisingly long-wearing. Gluten-free, cruelty-free.
