Lipsticks: Are You Team Sheer Or Team Bold?

Our Beauty Editor Lydia Thompson and Deputy Beauty Editor Chloe Burcham go head to head and the question is, who’s pout is in and who’s pout is out?!

As L’Oreal celebrate the launch of their collection of Infallible Sexy Balms, £4.99,  in either sheer or bold, it has left our beauty desk well and truly divided. Both are equally gorgeous lippys with 12 hours of irresistable moisture but you can either go for the Sheer just bitten look or full blown Bold bombshell.

Let’s see what Lydia and Chloe have to say…

Chloe: #TeamBold

‘For me, it’s all or nothing. If you’re going to wear a lip look, why not go bold? I like to emphasise my Cupid’s bow with L’Oreal Infallible Sexy Balm Bold and keep the lines crisp by tracing around the lip line with concealer. For an ultra long-lasting finish, Ciate’s Liquid Velvet Lipsticks, £17, are ah-mazing and don’t dry out your lips like other matte formulas can. Having a standout pout is the easiest way to update your look in the evening-so embrace it!’

Lyida: #TeamSheer

‘Gone are the days of gloopy lip glosses getting stuck in your hair-I’m all about balms, tints and lip oils. I use a scrub to remove dead skin and then slather on Ciate’s Pretty Stix, £16, they’re my new addiction. If I’m having a real easy-peasy day I love Maybelline’s Baby Lips Moisturising Lip Gloss, £4.99. I literally can’t deal with a high maintenance lip-I’d end up with it smeared down my face or all over my teeth. Natural is the way to go!’

But what do you think? Should you go bold or go home or keep things chic and sheer?

Maybe we should just get both…
