Want a plumped-out pout that even Kylie Jenner would be jealous of? Then you need to check out these 2-in-1 lip shades that will contour your pout to perfection…
Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick in Infatuation, £27.50
LOOK’s Beauty Editor Sam says: ‘The glossy formula kept my lips looking soft and feeling smooth, but the center of the stick didn’t contrast with the outer shade as much as I’d liked. It does come in lots of different shades, though.’
Topshop Lip Ombre in Perplex, £9 (Our #1 pick!)
LOOK’s Sam says: ‘Topshop’s new Lip Ombre is amazing! You need to use a lip brush as it comes in a dual compact not a stick, but once on the super pigmented colour managed to stay put all day. I was even complimented on how fantastic my lips looked – definitely a keeper!
Mary K At Play Triple Layer Tinted Lip Balm in In The Plum, £6
LOOK’s Sam says: ‘This buttery balm left a sheerer wash of colour than the others, but after a few layers my lips were a pretty purple shade. The formula was super conditioning but didn’t do much in terms of pout plumping.
LOOK’s Lip Contouring Tricks
1) Dab a bit of shimmery gloss, like Nars Lipgloss in Vent Sale, £19, on the center of your lips as a highlight.
2) Make like Kylie Jenner and take your lip liner slightly over the natural edges of your lips for a foolproof full pout.
3) Keep concealer handy incase of smudges and apply around your lips with a fine-tip brush to make them pop and keep the colour from bleeding.
