Best New Beauty: Red Alert

We never tire of painting our lips red and YSL’s new Vernis a Levres Vinyl–try Rhythm Red ($69)–is the perfect excuse to discover a new favourite. The clever formula delivers a glassy finish while delivering a hit of vivid colour. The gel-like texture and ultra shiny finish makes M.A.C Huggable Lipcolour in Flaming Lips ($50) a go-to for daywear.  Every handbag needs a little luxury inside and Dior Addict Lipstick in Too Much ($62) is our must-have. Lip-care and colour technology join forces in Estée Lauder’s new Pure Color Envy Hi- Lustre Sculpting Lipstick ($61 in Drop Dead Red); lips are amplified and defined with a burst of luminous colour.
