"I've long been a fan of Pat McGrath's glide-on, satin-finish lipsticks, but her line just welcomed the best new shades for spring — including what might be my new forever favorite. Creamy, cool-toned Boudoir Bloom is the perfect pop of bold tulip-pink."— Amanda Ross, beauty editor, TZR

"I drink a lot of iced coffee throughout the day, so I need long-lasting lipstick. I’ve tested a slew of formulas, but none quite measure up to Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution Lipstick. The taupe nude shade, Very Victoria, is my favorite for spring."— Kelsey Stewart, associate fashion editor, TZR

"I found the perfect shade of brownish red lipstick from Merit called Tiger. It skews more neutral than a bold red, one I could wear everyday that complements my 'no makeup makeup' skin. I just dab a bit on my bottom lip, blend with my finger, and off I go."— Kathy Lee, editor-in-chief, TZR

“Whenever I'm in the mood to veer from my everyday rosy-nude lip, I go for a bold red. The high-shine finish of this brick red Dior Addict shade feels lighter and less fussy than a matte – aka ideal for balmy spring days.”— Erin Lukas, deputy beauty editor, TZR

"As someone who unconsciously smushes my face in my hands when focused, I'm just not a great candidate for bright red lipstick. This sheer, spring-ready pink always looks good, though, even if it accidentally smears. Plus I can apply it without a mirror." — Alison Syrett, deputy fashion editor, TZR

"I normally gravitate towards vibrant reds and pinks, but this new shade (exclusive to Neiman Marcus!) is my new go-to for everyday wear. The pinky-nude shade delivers a subtle pop of color that layers nicely with a sheer gloss." — Angela Melero, executive editor, TZR

“Blue Mercury's exclusive line Lune+Aster makes the most nourishing lipsticks. My daily go-to is Livestream, which is a beautiful berry hue with medium coverage. It's a little luxury for my lips!”— Rebecca Iloulian, Director, Newsletter Revenue & Marketing, BDG

“Rosy mattes are my go-to year-round. But for spring, I’m leaning towards a peachy color with earthy, almost clay-like tones, like this Warm Taupe shade from Anastasia Beverly Hills. It has just the right hint of color to peak through my favorite glosses" — Jessica Fields, beauty writer, TZR
