"Lip lacquer" has a lot of possible meanings, but we're choosing to define it here as a unicorn of a product that somehow manages to combine a) the shine of a gloss, b) the color payoff of a lipstick and c) the wear time of a stain. It's a difficult balance to achieve — but unlike actual unicorns, they do, in fact, exist.

So, if it's shiny, long-lasting lip products you seek, read on. With lip lacquer picks spanning from budget drugstore faves to buzzy mid-range picks to ultra-luxe high-end splurges, we've totally got you covered.
