Today, I’m sharing the best lipsticks for women over 50… and at all price points! But first, a thought: rules for women after 50 are basically made to be broken because life is really too short not to be bold, confident and you know my darlings, wear that red lipstick! Now, if you’re looking for a bold red red lipstick, I’ve covered that here. If you’re more into lighter and more neutral lipstick shades, then there is nothing wrong with that. As always, you do you!
Regardless of color, there is just something about a good lipstick that makes me feel proud, courageous and like I am ready to take on the world. If you don’t believe me, then take it from Elizabeth Taylor, “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.” I dare you to try it and see how you feel with a bold lip… at any age!
The good news is that it’s just lipstick, pretty non-committal; if you don’t like it, then just wipe it off!
Lipstick is a beauty must! When we’re young, it’s often all about the color of the moment but as we mature, a great lipstick needs something we already have… staying power! Does that mean you need a pricey lipstick? Not at all, darlings. Quality comes in all types of lipstick cases so think of price like we think of our age — it’s just a number!
The best lipsticks for women over 50
I have compiled a list of some great brands to consider and split them up between two price points.
In terms of a lower price point, here are some quality, yet more affordable brands, all usually available at your local drugstore:
If you’re really looking for a lipstick splurge, these lipsticks are excellent, but will cost you a little extra. They are best found in department stores, other dedicated makeup stores and online:
4. MAC Cosmetics in Twig: I once read a review that said this was the most universally flattering color in the entire MAC line. My editors love it and it’s a wonderful warm, pinkish brown shade. Get it here for $20.
4. And, if you watched my last Facebook live you know that I swear by Tom Ford. It’s my “signature” lip hue and, in my opinion, one of the very best lipsticks for women over 50. I love Tom Ford’s Casablanca. It is one of my favorite staples. I know it is a Tom Ford customer’s favorite staple in their make-up routine because it has not been discontinued.
