2015 has been a big year for lipsticks. Our favourite brands have been busy creating new, exciting textures and colours to adorn our pouts, and luckily for our purses, they are even more affordable than their predecessors. These five have particularly caught our attention, and are going to be staying firmly put in our beauty bags this summer! Read on to discover ‘the one’ for you…
Best for… Intense colour
Say goodbye to dull lip colours that don’t provide the impact you’re looking for! Revlon’s new Ultra HD Lipstick is made with a special gel technology that glides on effortlessly to cover your lips in a rich, vibrant colour. We also love that the weightless formula smells incredible!
Best for… Longevity
This new release from Clinique features a built-in primer, meaning lips are nourished, conditioned and coloured in one easy sweep! It feels like a balm when you apply it, keeping lips soft and velvety, and thanks to the clever primer technology – the colour lasts for hours without fading.
Best for… No commitment
This moisturising and protective lipstick has the texture of a balm, yet the complexion-enhancing, high-impact colour of a lipstick. This is great if you are looking for something to sweep on quickly that will hydrate your lips and also give them a healthy, colourful glow.
Best for… Summer holidays
Bourjois Paris’ ColorBoost Lip Crayon is the perfect beach accessory. The lightweight and non-sticky formula leaves a dash of sheer, radiant colour on your lips. It’s also waterproof and has an SPF in it, making it our go to product for our next summer holiday!
Best for… Turning heads
This lipstick is genius! When it first arrived on our desks and we opened it to see a bright green colour, we were confused as to why its known as a ‘rosebud’ shade. But when we tried it on our lips we were amazed to see the emerald green lipstick transforms into a flattering, petal pink shade. It magically adapts to your own complxion, creating the perfect rosy pink shade for you, our minds are blown!
