Expanding your luxury beauty collection? Even if you aren’t, you’ve surely wondered what the most expensive lipsticks in the world look like. Well, here they are!

Seasoned lipstick lovers know that a woman’s lips are her finest accessory. Having a signature lip color is not only iconic, but it also establishes your personality and self-image, and can even elevate your confidence by a hundredfold. 

It’s nice to treat ourselves to luxury every once in a while. Whether you’re building your luxurious lipstick collection or you’re looking for your first signature lip color, going for an expensive lipstick brand is actually a good idea. While lipsticks (or cosmetics in general) cannot be sold pre-loved (or bought pre-loved unless they haven’t been used yet), it’s a nice feeling knowing that within your makeup collection, there’s a sleek, beautiful, expensive lipstick tucked away and ready to be worn on special occasions and formal events.

Below, we compiled a list of the most expensive lipsticks on the market right now. Give your lips a whole lot of lovin’ with these gorgeous luxury (and expensive) lipsticks that are worth the splurge. Pucker up, and let’s get started!

Note: This list doesn’t include special one-off launches, such as the H Couture Beauty Diamond lipstick that was sold for 14 million, or the Guerlain KissKiss Gold And Diamond Lipstick that retailed for $62,000 but isn’t available anymore. The lipsticks featured below are the highest-priced lipsticks that are currently sold at retail stores, and that anyone can buy!

Guerlain is well known for their Rouge G lipsticks that come with a sleek silver bullet-style case.

This limited-edition Lucky Bee lipstick, which retails for $290, is only available at Saks Fifth Avenue and the case is adorned with a rhinestone bee, which is the legendary symbol of the House of Guerlain. 

The lipstick itself has a satin finish with a diamond powder formula to provide that sultry, luminous effect on the lips.

This beautiful lipstick not only has a gorgeous case, giving this product a totally luxurious look, but the lipstick itself is buttery soft with a strong pigment.

The Valde Beauty Soar Collection Ritual Creamy Satin Lipstick is designed to be reusable and refillable so you never have to part with this stunning case, engraved with wings.

The lipstick is available in four different shades to suit your makeup style and features hyaluronic acid and antioxidants to leave you with soft and plump lips.

We love refillable lipsticks, just like this La Bouche Rouge Passhion Lipstick Refill with Leather Case since it’s a great way to always look incredible and be sustainable at the same time.

The amazing cool-toned red is designed to suit a wide range of skin tones and has a soft texture to make sure the lipstick is comfortable to wear all day long.

The lipstick comes in a white leather case – so luxurious – that can be refilled when you finish the Passhion red shade!


4. Bond No. 9 Lipstick – $105


One of the most expensive lipsticks in the world: Bond No. 9 refillable lipstick

Get this on Bond No.9

If you love the idea of a refillable luxury lipstick, but $400 is a bit too much to spend, why not try the original Bond No. 9 Lipstick instead of the one that’s covered in Swarovski crystal?

This lipstick is not only more affordable, but it also comes in many more shades than the Swarovski studded version. In total, this beautiful high-performance lipstick comes in 18 different shades, including neutrals, reds, plums, and browns.


5. Christian Louboutin Rouge Louboutin Silky Satin Lipstick – $100


Gold and red Christian Louboutin Rouge Louboutin Silky Satin Lipstick

Get this on Neiman Marcus

Christian Louboutin is well-known for its shoes and accessories, but they also have its fair share of gorgeous lipsticks.

The Rouge Louboutin Silky Satin Lipstick has a smooth and sumptuous texture and a non-drying comfort. The gleaming gold case is inspired by the Art Deco movement and finished with an engraved crown-style cap, and it’s supposed to look like a potion vial.

Since Louboutin shoes are iconic, it’s also safe to say that the lipstick looks like a stiletto heel. Isn’t it stunning? There are 11 different shades available, and each lipstick includes vitamin b5 and hyaluronic acid to leave your lips hydrated.


6. Christian Louboutin Rouge Louboutin Velvet Matte Lipstick – $90

Black, red, gold, and silver Christian Louboutin Rouge Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour Lipstick

Get this on Neiman Marcus

If you love matte lipstick, then this Christian Louboutin Rouge Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour Lipstick is just what you need and is a little more affordable than the satin version!

This lipstick has a black stiletto-shaped case, with gold hardware and a silver top for a striking look whenever you pull your lipstick out of your bag, plus the cap is topped with a small ring that you can use as a necklace or keychain.

The true red shade is inspired by the color that features on the base of Louboutin shoes and has a buttery texture so your lips don’t feel dry – just perfect!


7. Westman Atelier Lip Suede Lipstick Palette – $85


Pink and gold Westman Atelier Lip Suede Lipstick Palette

Get this on Sephora

This Westman Atelier Lip Suede Lipstick Palette is ideal if you are a little indecisive when it comes to your lipstick and would like different colors to choose from in one easy palette.

The palette includes four shades – warm rose, peony, café crème, and mulled wine, each with a stylish matte finish.

The palette has been formulated with plant-derived oils and biomimetic peptides to nourish and soften your lips, leaving them plump and hydrated. We also love the sleek case and handy little mirror inside.


8. Serge Lutens Fard à lèvres – $75


Get this on Saks Fifth Avenue

Serge Lutens is most famous for its high-quality designer perfumes which come in intricate packaging and fetch up to $600 per bottle. The brand has also ventured into other areas of beauty, including lipsticks, foundations, eyeshadows and nail polishes. 

The brand’s most popular beauty product is its Fard à Lèvres lipstick, which is sold in many retail chains across the world, including Saks Fifth in the US and Harvey Nichols in the UK. The lipstick comes in 16 beautifully pigmented shades, which include bold colors such as dark plum and purple.

While this lipstick is definitely expensive, it isn’t actually the brand’s most expensive lipstick – that title belongs to the L’étoffe Du Matte lipstick ($80), as well as the Lèvres en Boite lip palette ($160). The reason why we didn’t list these products separately is that they have largely been pulled from all other retailers apart from Serge Lutens’ own website, which suggests that they may be discontinued soon.

However, the popular Fard à Lèvres lipstick is in no danger of such a thing. Eco-conscious shoppers will be happy to know that you’re able to purchase refills for this lipstick, which reduces waste.


9. Edward Bess Big Kiss Ultra Slick Lipstick – $75


Black, white, and red Edward Bess Big Kiss Ultra Slick Lipstick

Get this on Neiman Marcus

Edward Bess is known for cosmetics with flattering colors and expert formulas that celebrities love wearing, which is why you need this Edward Bess Big Kiss Ultra Slick Lipstick in your makeup bag.

This jumbo size lipstick comes in a beautiful red shade and has a rich and creamy texture that is just irresistible! The black packaging is sleek, minimalist, and super practical in your makeup collection. The lipstick would also work perfectly as a cheek color!


10. Hermès Rogue – $72


Hermès Rogue

Of course, is this list even complete without an entry from Hermès? 

The gorgeous Rouge Hermès Matte Lipstick retails at $72 and it comes in three shades of velvety matte lipstick finish. We are fond of this particular shade, the Rose Boise, which is a neutral beige, with a hint of pink, as it is perfect for everyday wear or night outs. 

This luxurious lipstick comes in 24 shades, complete with nudes, reds, plums, pink, and of course, Hermès’ signature orange.


11. Clé De Peau Beauté Cream Rouge Matte Lipstick – $71


Black and pink Clé De Peau Beauté Cream Rouge Matte Lipstick

We love lipstick with long-staying power, like this Clé De Peau Beauté Cream Rouge Matte Lipstick! The gorgeous lipstick from the famously luxurious Clé De Peau Beauté brand is formulated with argan oil and vitamin E so your lips feel moisturized and repaired while you wear this lipstick.

The texture is lightweight and smudge-proof so you don’t have to worry about reapplying all day long. We love the soft brown shade of ‘Flame Lily 114’, but there are lots of colors to choose from.


12. Sisley Le-Phyto Rouge lipstick – $66


Most Expensive Lipsticks: Sisley Le-Phyto Rouge lipstick

Get this on Nordstrom

The Sisley Paris Le-Phyto Rouge lipsticks only come in 20 shades, but they pack a punch. Their key ingredients include a hydro booster complex that contains hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, and konjac glucomannans (that absorb moisture and boost lip plumping). 

The lipsticks come in gold casing with zebra-striped prints, which makes the whole thing look super luxurious. The reviews for these lipsticks are all generally pleasant and positive, most of them noting that the formula is excellent, lightweight, nourishing, and the creamy texture lasts for a long time.

The unique tip shape makes it possible to apply the lipstick in precision without having to use a lip liner beforehand. This lipstick can be yours for $66.


13. Clé De Peau Beauté Lipstick Shine – $65


Black, gold, and pink Clé De Peau Beauté Lipstick Shine

The sheer-shine formula means a stunning wash of color and a luminous look on the lips to achieve a plumper appearance. There are five different colors available, including bright and dark shades so you can pick the one that best suits you!


14. Claudio Riaz Lipxurious Lipstick – $65


Silver and red Claudio Riaz Lipxurious Lipstick

The multi-faceted sparkling silver case alone makes this Claudio Riaz Lipxurious Lipstick just irresistible!

The lipstick includes grapeseed oil, aloe, and hyaluronic acid in the formula to leave you with hydrated, nourished lips, with the strong color pigment means the stunning colors really last.

There are 10 different colors available, and we love the shade LX 7 for a great everyday pink you need in your handbag or LX 10 for a fantastic true red for those special glam occasions!
