Chantecaille Lip Chic in ‘Camellia’

A long-wearing glossy wash of colour that’s never sticky? It’s Chantecaille’s Lip Chic. The ‘Camellia’ shade has universal appeal and its soft pink hue complements any off-duty makeup look. If you shy away from opaque lipsticks and prefer something more subtle, this one’s for you.

Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick in ‘At Night’

Arguably one of the most appealing elements of this lipstick is its sleek packaging—there’s not many lippies as chic as this handbag staple from Hourglass. The refillable gold applicator houses a creamy formula that saturates lips in longwearing colour—plus the slim shape means you’ll never colour outside the lines. As for the shade, the brand describes it as a ‘brick red’; think of it more like a ‘red wine’ take on the typical red you might be used to.

NARS Lipstick in ‘Dolce Vita’

The lipstick shade so popular that NARS decided to make it available in an Afterglow Lip Balm version. ‘Dolce Vita’ has a sheer finish with a your-lips-but-better hue; it’s moderately warm-toned with a slight plum undertone. It’s the nude you need right now.

Lipstick Queen Frog Prince

This isn’t your average lip colour, but don’t let that scare you off. ‘Frog Prince’ is here to brighten your day (and your lips) with its colour-transforming technology. Just like the lip balms of your childhood, the bullet goes on green initially and then slowly adjusts to the warmth of your lips, transforming into a pinky-rose hue. It’s infused with vitamin C and shea butter to keep your lips hydrated, while the shade-shifting magic keeps you entertained.

MAC Lipstick Ruby Woo

Fact: you will feel confident and powerful when you wear this vivid red lipstick. An absolute MAC classic, ‘Ruby Woo’ is a matte finish, blue-toned red that has countless fans (including Taylor Swift during her Red album days) around the world. Benefit of a blue-toned lipstick? It’ll make your teeth appear white. What’s not to love?

3

NARS Afterglow Orgasm Lip Balm

Selling out swiftly when it launched at MECCA, this was the first of the Afterglow shades from NARS and it definitely made an impression. It’s the universally flattering Orgasm shade we fell in love with on our cheeks, now available in a juicy lip balm formula. Swipe this on for fuller-looking, hydrated lips that have just the right amount of peachy pink appeal.

MAC Lipstick Velvet Teddy

Velvet Teddy is a lipstick icon. It’s worn on the regular by influencers, celebrities (looking at you, Kylie Jenner) and beauty lovers alike. Compared to ‘Honey Love’, it’s got more of a deeper rose undertone (making it tad warmer on the lips) but shares the same creamy matte finish. Whichever way you look at it, ‘Velvet Teddy’ is the universal nude that people keep coming back for.
