Lips lips lips. Unsurprisingly there’s plenty here for the lipstick-phobe as I’m practically one myself.
1. TATA HARPER VOLUMIZING LIP AND CHEEK TINT
I love this brand – great colours, beautiful packaging and 100% natural. A really good present. I really like shades: Very Naughty and Very Popular.
2. BOBBI BROWN LIP COLOR IN RED
I just did a job that required putting red lipstick on 20 woman of all ethnicities and I used this one on almost everyone.
3. CHARLOTTE TILBURY K.I.S.S.I.N.G. BITCH PERFECT
Nude lipsticks are hard to get right and one never suits all, but this one is very versatile and flattering. It has a little pink in it so you don’t get that corpse look, yet nude enough for when you are doing a smokey eye and want to play down the lips.
4. BURTS BEES TINTED LIP BALM
In 6 very pretty colours.
5. No7 BB LIPS
I really like the texture of these moisturising lips glosses. A mix of gloss and balm with no stickiness and just a hint of colour. Berry Rose is a pretty suits-all shade.
6. LIPSTICK QUEEN MEDIEVAL
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – a great universally flattering sheer berry red. Like you’ve been eating lots of cherries!
7. No7 STAY PERFECT LIP LACQUER
Ok so this is a bit naughty as I’ve never used this BUT a lipstick aficionado client of mine said this is the most long wearing lipstick on the market, and she’s tried them ALL. The shade range is limited so I’m buying two for my Mum this Christmas so she can mix them together to get the right shade.
8. ELIZABETH ARDEN 8 HOUR CREAM THE ORIGINAL
Brilliant for chapped lips. Don’t buy the lip balm or fragrance free versions as they just don’t cut it – stick to The Original.
