Top 32 of 2016: Best High-End Lipsticks

Well, this was incredibly difficult even narrowing it down to 32, and I ended up strategizing my picks by making sure to include some of the best formulas that came out, even though I would have easily been able to double my favorites just due to the sheer volume of new lipsticks released and reviewed this year. Here’s the list I started with (57 shades), for reference!
