Our makeup pros suggest trying Non-Stop Red- 510, Enduring Ruby- 070, or
Timeless Crimson – 075 for a swish night out. Your lips will do all the communication for you. If you’re looking at a brunch then go for Continuous Cranberry- 060.
- Rouge Plump from Chambor
This range is all about giving your lips a lush hydrated look minus the fine lines which some lipsticks seem to bring out. The plumping effect of the lipstick ensures that your lips look full and sensuous. Yumm, right? The best thing however is that the lipsticks from this range are loaded with SPF15 making it your perfect day time side-kick.
Our makeup pros suggest trying the Coral Pink 601.
- Full Finish Longwear from ColorBar
What we like most about lipsticks from this brand, is that they come in a sleek silver casing making them look pretty bad-ass. This range from ColorBar is rich with pigments and doesn’t smear or smudge on application and later. If you likes sway towards earthy rich browns then this range is your best friend.
Our makeup pros suggest trying En Vogue for a day out, and Wicked Brown or Innocently Brown for a delicious night out.
Start practising your best kiss face ladies, and don’t forget to swish on a layer of lip-salve before you apply your chosen shade of lip colour! Happy safe kissing, you!
