1. FOR A BOLD LIP
Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-stick Lipstick in #45 Rouge Tuxedo, $50.
Love the classic red lip? This intense, shiny hue is right up your alley. Infused with pomegranate extract and macadamia butter, this lippie also keeps your puckers plump, hydrated and looking great.
2. FOR A SHIMMERY FINISH
RMK Lip Jelly Gloss in EX-03 Vivid Pink, $36.
Want supple lips and a sparkling finish? This shimmery fuchsia lip gloss with a moisturising gel formula is your go-to. It looks scary bright in the tube, but goes on sheer – making it great for wearing on its own, or for layering over a bright lipstick. What I like most about it is its spatula applicator, which has a pointed tip that makes it so easy to create the perfect Cupid’s bow.
3. FOR A SOFT HINT OF COLOUR
Sulwhasoo Essential Lip Serum Stick in #02 Blossom Serum, $50.
This is my new must-have if I’m travelling to a wintry country. The camellia oil in it keeps my lips hydrated, while the glossy, cherry-hued finish makes them look soft and plump. Granted, the gloss wears off after roughly two hours, but even then, my lips aren’t as flaky and chapped as before.
