The old adage “don’t judge a book by its cover” doesn’t really apply to beauty enthusiasts like us. We are suckers for pretty packaging – and we’re proud of it! These lipsticks we have curated in this list don’t just make us more beautiful – they’re complete knockouts themselves.

If your heart and credit cards are ready, let’s get started.

1. Louboutin lipstick

Inspired by Middle Eastern antiquities, the solid metal body of the Louboutin lipstick is reminiscent of a precious vial. Its cap is topped with a small ring threaded with a silk ribbon, turning the lip colour into a necklace. With 38 shades available, this lipstick is a definite showstopper with its unique product and package design.

2. Anna Sui Star Lipstick

Anna Sui doesn’t hold back when it comes to packaging: Everything – from this lipstick’s adorable star-shaped bullet to the gorgeous gradient effect on the cap – makes this lipstick a dream come true. The beauty junkies in us are squealing over this beauty, which also softens dry, flaky lips, thanks to the conditioning fruit oils in its formula.

3. Givenchy Le Rouge lipstick

Givenchy’s Le Rouge is the first lipstick to be encased in genuine leather, and delivers intense colours and a semi-matte finish all in one stroke. With its sleek packaging and moisturising formula, this lipstick is one that you need to get your hands on if you’re looking for something that looks opulent.

4. YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick

The sophisticated container and silky coverage are enough reasons to splurge on this lipstick, but we’ve discovered a genius trick that makes this product a must-have: After the rouge has run out, the middle part of the tube can be taken out and worn as a ring.

5. History of Whoo Gongjinhyang Mi lipstick

The packaging of the History of Whoo Gongjinhyang Mi lipstick is not just pretty, it is practical as well – the little capsule attached to the bottom actually contains a lip brush for touch-ups on the go! With its creamy texture and buildable formula, this lipstick has quickly gained popularity amongst K-beauty junkies.

6. Kailijumei flower lipstick

Every beauty junkie knows this lipstick as the one that made the entire Internet go crazy (well, other than the Kylie lip kits maybe). This clear-coloured lipstick comes infused with some unique ingredients and embellishment, including jelly, gold flakes, and a tiny flower placed directly in the centre of the tube.

7. Tory Burch lipstick

Encased in gold-and-orange fretwork, every tube of this lipstick is practically an accessory. Subtly scented with notes of cassis, grapefruit and mandarin from the Tory Burch fragrance, this lipstick claims to feature a modern formula that perfectly balances sheer yet vivid colour, rich texture and a weightless finish.

8. Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope lipstick

With its exquisite packaging and a formula that allegedly took eighteen months to perfect, Lipstick Queen’s Velvet Rope lipstick line brings together every girl’s dream lipstick combination of exquisitely rich pigmentation and ease of application.

9. Velvet 59 Matte to the Max liquid lipsticks

With their gorgeous reflective rose gold tops and unique shapes, Velvet 59’s matte liquid lipsticks are definitely ones you’d want to show off on your vanity. Furthermore, their moisturising formula will keep your lips hydrated (and matte!) all day.

10. Guerlain Rouge G De Guerlain Jewel Lipstick Compact

There’s no denying that Lime Crime has always been at the top of the game when it comes to aesthetically-pleasing products, and their lipsticks are no exception. Also, if you’re looking to having velvety matte lips, this one housed in a frosted glass tube is definitely the lipstick for you.

12. Too Faced Melted Matte lipsticks

How often do you come across lipsticks housed in cute triangular-shaped bottles? Its unique packaging isn’t its only selling point either – the intense, vivid matte colour these lipsticks provide lasts on your lips for hours, even through mealtimes!
