Think about those moments you just want to get up and go to work with the most no-fuss make-up face ever – a lipstick is what you need.

We asked Stylish Academics on Instagram what their favourite lipstick was, and in no particular order, here’s what they said:


Lady Danger lipstick – MAC £16.50

“The colour is great and seems to suit anyone, it has great staying power and one lipstick lasts for AGES” – the_irate_pirate

Laura Mercier – $26 and above

Bond Girl – Charlotte Tilbury £24.00

“Charlotte Tilbury Bond Girl! My favourite! 😉 ” – sciencebeaut

Chanel Lipsticks – £25.00 and above

“Gorgeous, rich colour; highly pigmented; stays on forever; doesn’t dry out your lips. Sleek packaging doesn’t hurt either! 👄👄👄” – sushmajansari

Rosewine – Revlon £6.50

“A bit on the cheaper range: Rosewine by Revlon. Creamy, good cover and beautiful nude-ish shade for my darker skin. For a dark shade, Crimson by Revlon in the long stay range. It’s a beautiful shade, and has a nice freshness when applied” – cianydeargentum

Blurred Lines – I.T. Cosmetics $24.00

“I love the IT Cosmetics Blurred Lines “Smooth-Fill” lipsticks! I wear reds or bright pinks everyday, and these don’t do that horrible feathery line thing, the lipstick stays on and they’re the perfect shades!” – drdhodge
