I Have the Chicest Co-Workers—11 Designer Lipsticks Always in Their Bags

I’ve always been curious about the lipsticks that people take with them everywhere. Maybe it’s because out of the hundreds of lipsticks (not even an exaggeration) I’ve tried in my life, only about ten of them have a regular spot in any of my purses. For a lipstick to reach purse status for me, it has to be pretty exceptional—it can’t leave my lips feeling dry, it must last at least three hours minimum, and it must be highly pigmented, never patchy (though buildable is a major plus).

I love lipstick no matter what, but many of my favorite lipsticks happen to be designer. There’s just something about a designer lipstick—they’re well-made, beautifully packaged, and wear so well. Not to mention, you feel more luxe the second you put a designer lipstick on. Some designer lipsticks are such go-to's for me that I make sure to keep them with me nearly at all times.

Since everyone I work with always has a major lipstick look, I decided to ask them which designer lipsticks they keep on their person at all times—and their answers did not disappoint. Keep reading for everyone’s ride or die designer lipsticks.
