Shu Uemura Laque Supreme Shimmer, $40 (available in eight shades)

WHAT The oil-in-water lip gloss is infused with ultra-fine crystal pearls, and gold and silver powder to give you glossy lips. It uses a water-soluble dye and oil-dispersed pigments to make it intensely pigmented and a blend of polymers and oil for long-wearing power.

VERDICT “The lip gloss was so lightweight – it was like I was simply wetting my lips. They felt plumped up and smooth, and not greasy at all. Dry lines became less obvious and my pout was full and glossy. I loved the tapered wand tip as it made slicking on the lip gloss easy and precise.” – Simone
