One of my favourite brands for lipsticks is MAC. They have a huge range of shades and finishes- enough so that every person can find a shade that suits them. I find that most are long lasting (the mattes especially) and are rarely drying on my lips.
Here are swatches of my current collection :)

|L-R Candy Yum Yum, Moxie, Lustering, Brick-o-la, Crosswires, Viva Glam Cyndi, Apres Chic, See Sheer|
