Like the polar opposite of the brands’ matte Velvet lip pencil, Nars' Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Mexican Rose is a shiny gloss crayon in bright fuchsia that also acts as a lip stain, so your lips will still have colour after that candlelit dinner.

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick, $40

Who says sultry lips have to be red or pink? New from Chanel's Spring 2013 Collection is the Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in La Favorite. I’m all over this electric coral shade, especially because the matte formula is still luminous. My tip: with any matte lip colour, exfoliate your lips gently first for smoothest results. Available at www.thebay.com.
