As much as we love a nice bold lip, it’s not always the most wearable. That’s where the blotted lip trend comes in — it’s essentially a sheer matte formula that gets darker with each swipe.

Whether you want a fuss-free lip color or want to add a flush of color back to your face, check out some of our top picks that you can wear on the daily.

Glossier Generation G (Zip) $18
This red has all the punch without the strong pigment. We love how silky this shade looks on every skin tone — it brightens your face without washing you out. Plus, it’s packaged small enough to stash in even the tiniest of clutches.

cp splitColourPop Ultra Blotted Lip (Split) $6
Looking for a deeper shade to add to your makeup bag? This berry blotted lip is lightweight, easy to layer, and feels absolutely luxurious. The long-lasting formula will stay vibrant all day and well into the night.

Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color (Cranberry) $29
A rich red lip with only half of the commitment, add this Bobbi Brown lip color to your shopping cart ASAP. It feels like a balm and is infused in vitamin E, vitamin C, and beeswax, which will keep your lips moisturized all day.

cp lollyColourPop Blotted Lip (Lolly) $5
While the stick looks more brown than purple, this shade will give you the plum shade you’ve always wanted. Swipe once for a sheer look and twice for a deep and dramatic pout. No matter how many times you apply it, it’s still as lightweight as it was with the first application.

Glossier Generation G (Cake) $18
If you want a lighter lip tone, this product is for you. This is great if you want to play up your natural lip color without it feeling cakey (no pun intended). We suggest swiping once or twice for best results.

cp suckerColourPop Blotted Lip (Sucker) $5
Every beauty drawer needs a coral lip color. If you want a natural, peachy hue to wear every day, then you’ve found the perfect product. Not only that, the velvety texture makes it creamy and easy to apply and isn’t drying.
