Advanced new lip colours continue to abound, so if you’re in the mood for a colourful new pick-me-up, there’s plenty of options to suit.
More than ever textures and formulas are being fine tuned to ensure the health and hydration of your lips is taken care of. They also feel more comfortable to wear over a number of hours without bunching up or settling in lines or appearing dry or cakey.
Balm and shine finishes are the most popular right now. In part it’s likely that’s to these arrivals coinciding with the northern hemisphere summer, but also because with increasingly casual lifestyles there are less occasions where a high-voltage matte lipstick feels like the right choice.
These new options are undoubtedly easy to enjoy and work equally well through the day as for an evening event.
As part of its Summer 2022 Dioriviera Collection, Dior has released a new range of lip stains. Think they look familiar? They are similar to the brand’s previous Dior Addict Lip Tattoo but with updated packaging and a refreshed formula that highlights natural origin ingredients that focus on nourishing the skin on your lips.
The sheer muted tint each product creates is very fresh and modern and never looks overdone, nor do you have to keep checking if they have smudged as they are transfer-proof.
Hourglass Phantom Volumizing Glossy Balm
This glossy, hydrating formula skims over lips so they appear smoother and fuller. It has a decent amount of coverage (sheer-medium) and manages to look slightly more low key than your average lipstick in a thoroughly modern way, and feels light and comfortable on your lips. A slight addition of cooling mint quickly fades but the moisturising properties remain.
Guerlain Kiss Kiss Bee Glow Lip Balm
A melt-into-skin balm texture that offers a hint of colour this beautiful lip product is made with 98% natural origin ingredients including honey, to provide comfort and care to your pout. It’s the ideal top-up product to carry with you to reapply throughout the day or when lips feel dry and comes in six sheer shades including a soft honey and soft lavender that really enhance the natural colour of your lips.
Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Lipstick
Why change a good thing? When you can make it even better!
Elizabeth Arden’s has just launched its popular Beautiful Colour Lipstick collection with a new formulation that prioritises ingredients that leave your lips in great condition and comes in a wide range of wearable, high-impact hues. With 30 colours – 22 shades in a moist satin finish and 8 matte – there’s an option to work with every occasion and outfit.
The new lipstick makes the most of Elizabeth Arden’s expertise with nourishing ceramides, included in this new formulation along with vitamin E and maracuja oil for soft, smooth, younger-looking lips. What we love is the way they expertly define and enhance your lips with full, one-swipe colour but wont feather into fine lines around the mouth.
Fenty Skin Cherry Treat Strengthening + Conditioning Lip Oil
This has very little perceptible colour but at this time of the year comforting, soothing care for your lips can be a godsend. Fenty Skin Cherry Treat Strengthening + Conditioning Lip Oil uses cherry extracts as well as jojoba seed and rosehip fruit oils to condition, vanquish dead skin and deeply hydrate your pout. The clear, non-sticky formula is the perfect option to pop on in the car or to counteract dryness caused by air conditioning.
