If you’ve ever wondered which lipstick brands are flying off the shelves, a leading research company has the answers.

According to the NPD Group, the prestige lip segment grew by 7% in U.S. department stores from January through April 2011.

Since February 2010, lip color has also seen 15 months of steady dollar growth with many months posting double-digit increases.

Karen Grant, vice president and senior global industry analyst, said that the preference for rich and retro colors in 2010 has been replaced by a preference for new neutrals. “As the fashion industry increasingly features bold as well as understated lip statements on the runway and in advertisements, lip color appears to be getting its groove back,” noted Grant.

Here are the top five best-selling lip color brands:

#1—Mac Lipstick (I can vouch for my favorite MAC neutral called Fabby, which has a pink base and a golden sheen )
#2—Lancome L’Absolu Rouge
#3—Clinique Long Last Soft Shine Lipstick
#4—Estee Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick
#5—Chanel Rouge Coco Shine (I love the Rouge Coco line, especially Rose Comete which is a cool pink shade (find out more about Rouge Coco Shine here)
