List Rules Vote up the most reliable lip color brands that are worth the money.

The best lipstick brands include cosmetics companies that continue to offer high quality lines of makeup without the high prices. From drugstore lipstick brands to department store offerings, this list includes some of the most popular types of lipstick lines ever. Which brand of lipstick is the best of the bunch? That's for you to decide with your votes. Vote down any lipstick brands you don't like, too, and feel free to add your favorite if it isn't listed. Once enough people have voted, we'll have a clear answer to what are the top brands. 

What makes a lipstick brand great? In short, beautiful shades (in a wide variety of pigments to suit a myriad of skin tones) and a long-lasting color. Lipsticks, whether drug store or otherwise, aren't cheap, so having one that doesn't wear off after one sip of coffee is a huge deal. A great lip color will also not dry lips out. Some lipsticks combine conditioning ingredients with color, making for a sheer, subtle shading formula that's great for everyday wear. It's almost like wearing a lipstick, a gloss and a balm in one.

Some of the most well-known drugstore lipstick brands include Revlon, Cover Girl, Maybelline and Max Factor. If you're a makeup junkie, the chances are good that you have a lipstick in your arsenal from one of these brands. The more expensive lipstick brands include Chanel, MAC and Bobbi Brown, among others. Cheap lipstick brands are probably more popular overall, simply because well, they're cheaper -- but don't discount the value of purchasing a wonderful, high-quality elite brand of lipstick either. Find what works for you and stick to it!
