Financial cheat day: 5 beauty buys you need to wow at the office

It’s the start of the week. We’re all tired and mourning the death of the weekend. But don’t worry, we’ve made it a financial cheat day to help boost our moods! 

Today we’re looking at the best lip loves out there that will elevate your work beauty look to a whole new level. From a chameleon lipstick to a Kylie Jenner beauty look, we’ve got you covered. Any excuse to shop, we’re there!

1. The Coachella colour pop

We’re all getting major Coachella style-spiration right now. We bet your Instagram account is brimming, right? Well we’ve found an incredible new lipstick that is bright, fun and stays put for ages. To say we’re excited is an understatement. Welcome into your life the Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lipstick, it comes in loads of cool colours and it’s a total dream.

Beauty2. Kissing the frog

So over your lack of love life? Us too. This lipstick gets it. Meet Frog Prince by Lipstick Queen. It’s green (and yes, looks slightly weird) but on the touch of your lips it turns into a rosebud shade of pink. As it adaps to your pH balance and natural colouring, no two people have the same lips, so the colour will be perfectly flattering just for you. Who needs men?

Beauty3. The Kate Moss/Kylie Jenner nude

We’re always after Kate Moss and Kylie Jenner’s sultry nude lips, especially for the office when a bold red can sometimes look a little OTT. This one from Charlotte Tilbury in K.I.S.S.I.N.G Nude Kate is buttery and smooth but also gives a good hit of pigment, meaning it won’t disappear quickly like so many nude lipsticks do.

4. Get glossy 

When it comes to lipgloss you don’t want anything sticky, clumpy or too watery. These ones from Origins are perfect because they are thick enough to stay put and show up, but aren’t too heavy that you look like a porn star – not an office look you want, let’s be honest! They smell and taste divine too – they will be your new desk-side go-to we promise.

Beauty5. Take your lipstick out for after-work cocktails 

We may be heading towards summer but that’s no reason to put your deep lip to bed. A classic burgundy, such as this Chantecaille lipstick in Heirloom Rose, is sure to turn heads at your office drinks party – no sultry dark sky required. To avoid a too-severe look, blur the edges of your lips with a cotton bud.
