When it comes to makeup, there is nothing quite as iconic as a tube of lipstick. The perfect shade of lippy can light your face, give you an instant confidence boost, and make you look more vibrant and awake. While there is no shortage of beauty brands that offer pout perfection, there are only a handful of lip products that you can swear by for durability and texture.
Our panel of Her World Beauty Awards tried and tested the market’s best lipsticks and picked out their favourites that could make an onlooker weak at their knees. Finding the perfect lippy just got a whole lot easier.
Best lip treatment (Editors’ choice) – M.A.C Hint of Colour Lip Oil ($38)
Dry lips feel hydrated and comforted. The high-shine finish looks like a translucent stain, and its colour changes according to your body chemistry – so it’s your very own personalised tint. The shine goes away after food and drinks, but lips stay moisturised.
Best lip treatment (Bloggers’ choice) – Cle de Peau Beaute UV Protective Lip Treatment ($85)
We love that this colourless lip balm has a high SPF(SPF30/PA+++), which is quite rare among lip treatments. It leaves lips soft, and with a velvet-matte finish. You need to reapply it after food and drinks.
