An orange lippie is always appropriate for summer – when everything gets brighter, breezier and happier. And FYI, all the lipsticks in the revamped Rouge Coco line were named after the people closest to Coco Chanel. This shade’s called Coco – see why this is a must-try?

#2 Urban Decay Revolution High-Colour Lip Gloss, Bittersweet
$33, Available at all Sephora stores.

If you’re a more traditional, shiny, glossy lip lover. Try Make Up For Ever’s Plexi-Glosses in the pearl finishes. This coral shade, #302P, makes the perfect everyday gloss for the OL.

$33, Available at all Laneige stores.

Speaking of everyday lippies, Laneige’s Water Drop Tinted Lip Balm keeps your lips moisturised and plump-looking with a combination of fruit seed oils. They add a little tint to the lips (and you don’t really need a mirror to apply this), so busy bees, this is great.

#5 M.A.C Huggable Lips, Dramatical
$30, Available from May 15 at all M.A.C stores and counters.

Unlike the glosses and balms above, M.A.C’s Huggable lipsticks feel a little more creamy. You can really feel it “hugging” your lips during application, too. If you’re a matte lipstick lover who wants to try the healthy-lip trend, this is a good one to start with. There are 12 shades in total, but the one we love most is Dramatical, and well, what’s a lipstick list without a red lippie?

#6 Too Faced Melted Metal, Metallic Peony
$30, Available at all Sephora stores.

Combining two of this year’s biggest lip trends – the liquid lipstick and the shiny-lip finish – Too Faced’s Melted Metal range has eight shades of ultra-glossy liquid lipsticks. These give a metallic shine that may sound intimidating for some, so start with a relatively nude shade like Metallic Peony.
