We kiss with them, we sip with them, we angle them with finesse to create coy little smiles — they're one of the sexiest parts of the body, and paired with the right gloss, balm, stick or stain, can make an onlooker weak at the knees.

We want it all when it comes to beauty products for the lips: color, shine, staying power, plumpness and an affordable price. The good news is we can have it all. There are a ton of lip products out there, but there's nothing classier or more seductive than the market's best lipsticks.

Total Beauty's fearless readers have tried and tested the lot. Prepare yourself for these, dare we say, life-changing lipsticks. We've got 'em all, from drugstore steals to the recherché.

Best Lipstick No. 17: Clinique Almost Lipstick, $18.50
TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.3*
Why it's great: Let's start things off with a veritable cult classic. This sheer lippie is beloved by generations: Many readers have been using it for decades and one reviewer even recalls receiving a tube from her aunt as a teenager.

There's a reason it's so popular — as one reader puts it, "It has a nice lightweight texture and doesn't feel like your lips are being suffocated," and since it's sheer and designed to enhance your natural lip color, it's basically the "best lipstick shade for nearly everyone."
