These lip-smacking glosses will keep your pucker pretty with long-lasting colour and sumptuous shine
Whether you’re looking to lock lips with your love or just gloss up your grin, you’ll soften your smoocher with these sultry lipsticks and lipglosses. Learn how to choose and apply your favourite lipstick.
Avon’s mark, Make it Rich Lip Colour Crayon in Hot Sauce is an intense tomato red that goes on super smooth, has a dewy finish and doesn’t bleed. If you’ve not checked out Avon in a while, things are a whole lot hipper. This is a must-try.
Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bellisima is a baby pink matte-finish lipstick that goes on with a sponge-tip applicator like a gloss. My tip: apply to lips, blot, smooth out with a finger, and let dry. Available at Sephora.com, www.shoppersdrugmart.ca and www.murale.ca.
Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lip Gloss in Trashed is one of my favourite lipglosses because of its minty taste and maxi lip-plumping action. This bright pink shade has a touch of shimmer and is never sticky. Available at Sephora.com and www.shoppersdrugmart.ca.
I’ve been stopped on the street when I wear this bold, orangey-red shade, by ladies who want to know what that amazing colour is! Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square creates super-fast bold lips without having to use lip liner. Available at Sephora.com, www.murale.ca, www.thebay.com and www.holtrenfrew.com.
Sometimes all a girl wants is soft lips with a teensy bit of shine but no colour. Estee Lauder’s Aerin Essentials Rose Lip Conditioner is a lovely new product with a slight, romantic rose scent, and healing properties. Available at www.holtrenfrew.com.
I like the Honey shade of Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain for when you want your lips to look like your own natural colour but better. This fat crayon is super moisturizing and tinted, the perfect shade for a Saturday afternoon on-the-go. Available at www.londondrugs.com.
A cult favourite for good reason, Rosebud Perfume Co.’s Minted Rose Lip Balm is a charming tin of minty-rose lip balm with a sheer cherry red tint. Essential for winter-dry lips. Available at www.beautymark.ca.
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. Available at Sephora.com, www.murale.ca, www.thebay.com and www.holtrenfrew.com.
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.
Super soothing for dry lips, Clinique’s Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Mightiest Maraschino has buildable colour intensity the more you layer, especially in this hot-pink tint. Infused with mango seed butter, this twist-up product should always be in your bag. Available atwww.thebay.com.
