Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in #452 Emilienne, $48.
“My lips are prone to dryness and flaking, so I prefer super-hydrating lipsticks like the ones from Chanel’s reformulated Rouge Coco range, which have a buttery formula. There are 24 colours to choose from; I like this deep pink shade, which is perfect for glam nights.” – Jaclyn Gunasilan, senior beauty writer
Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick: Matte in Bold Red, $35.
“This lipstick has a creamy, matte formula that glides on so smoothly and gives an opaque, vibrant colour. I particularly love this bright red, which just pops against my fair skin.” – Lieu Wei Ning, beauty writer
Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-gloss in #304, $34.
“I love shiny lip glosses, but they tend to fade off quickly, so I was pleasantly surprised when this one stayed on even after a meal. I also love its pigmented coral hue, which gives my skin a radiant glow.” – Carina Koh, beauty writer
Dior Rouge Dior Brillant in #808 Victoire, $48.
“The brand calls this a ‘lip balm gloss’ and true to form, the formula is moisturising, and gives a shiny finish and just the right amount of colour. This peachy hue doesn’t make my complexion look washed out.” – Amanda Lai, beauty writer
