She is the BLUEprint after all...😉

If you want to add some drama to your look, then blue lipstick is always going to be a head-turner. It's time to ditch the classic red or nude and go with a bold blue. Why? Because life's too short, tbh.

The queen of blue lipstick is, of course, queen RiRi herself, who uses different shades to achieve different - but equally iconic - looks. Choose a lighter one to give you a pop candy kind of look, or go for a darker one to deliver vamp glam chic.

Blue is always going to be a daring look, so if you're not convinced just yet, we suggest trying one of the lower-cost and lighter options first. The lipsticks we have selected start at just £4, so there’s something for everyone’s budget. Because we know that payday is still a little far off...

The NYX This Is Everything lip oil in SkyBlue is - well - everything. With over 200 positive reviews on ASOS, this lip product promises the perfect blue pout, and reviewers rave about how soft and radiant it leaves their lips. Don't mind if we do.

Another dark blue lipstick which has a really vivid colour. Rimmel claims it's kiss-proof, so you have now an excuse to test it as much as you can.

If you want a high-quality lipstick that'll last you through the night, then Jeffree Star is a great choice. There are two blue shades available: Jawbreaker, which is a striking neon blue; and Blue Velvet, which really does look like blue velvet. Either way, you're going to be noticed in these colours.

MAC Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolor, Lunar Module
8 of 10

The most expensive lipstick we've chosen is also our favourite, and it comes from MAC so you know you're getting great quality. This lipstick has a brilliant funky 1960's space-age vibe thanks to the glittery light blue shade, but it's also perfect if you're going for the ultimate ice queen look.

Ciatu00e9 London Glitter Flip Lipstick, Siren
9 of 10

If you're keen on the glittery look of the MAC lipstick but aren't sure about the shade, this Glitter Flip Lipstick by Ciaté London is another option. What's unique about it is the way it transforms from matte to 3D glitter when you press your lips together. They call it magic, we call it genius.

Bperfect x Blue Hydrangea Lipstick
10 of 10

Ultra-pigmented and soft, the Bperfect lipstick in periwinkle blue will give you that perfect blue without looking patchy or cheap. Love.
