MATTE LIP COLOURS

The star of the hour (thanks to numerous celebrities and YouTubers) is the matte lip colour. Fresh and modern, it adds a hint of structure to almost any look. Often long-lasting, it’s perfect for those who slack off on touch-ups or who simply dislike glossy looks. Although, matte doesn’t automatically mean discreet. Vibrant colours pop to perfection in this powdered texture! 

Quick tip: When wearing a matte lip colour, make sure your lips are well hydrated. As it doesn’t reflect light, this product won’t hide chapped lips

Lips oil

New to the market, lip oil is a cross between lip care and makeup. It is perfect for those who want the benefits of a lip care product, but with a pretty colour touch. Good bye sticky effect!

Tip: Put it over your favorite lipstick to enhance and keep your lips hydrated!

Long-wearing lip colours

This is the busy modern woman’s best friend. Its promise? Apply it in the morning and it will last until the end of your (crazy) day. Where do we sign up? For best results, this product requires a flawless canvas. The trick? Apply a lip balm before bed. The next morning, your lips will be ready for this high-intensity lacquer.

Quick tip: A long-wearing lip colour requires a precise touch to avoid slip-ups. There are no do-overs with this one! Our advice? Use a lip brush.

Cream lip colours

The classic that has stood the test of time, this tube works with everything. Perfect for both thin and full lips, it’s guaranteed to give you a healthy glow. It’s best to use this with a lip pencil to keep it from bleeding. For those with thin lips, this formula reflects more light, which gives the illusion of a fuller mouth.

Quick tip: If you don’t like the look of a lip pencil, opt for a transparent version that will still prevent your lip colour from migrating.

Lip gloss

You can thank the noughties for bringing gloss back. The best friend of the thin-lipped, this is the perfect product for quick touch-ups. Leave your mirror and brush at home! We love how it brightens our lips and adds a discreet sheen of colour without all the thick layers. Its best feature? It’s great at camouflaging dry, cracked lips.   

Quick tip: For luscious lips, concentrate your gloss on your lower lip. A plumped-up pout is guaranteed!
