A statement lip color is the perfect way to compliment any Valentines outfit whether the date is day time or night-time! I have picked a few of my favourite eye-catching coloured lipsticks and glosses that are great for colour and durability.
These four are definitely on the glossy/shimmery side (from left to right) we have the Seventeen Lip Crayon in a gorgeous peachy shade, unfortunately it doesn’t say the shade on the packaging!
Bourjois Paris Rose Exclusif is a transparent lip gloss that adjusts to a personalised pink when applied on the lips. I would say its very similar to the lip crayon but on the gloss side, I use this more as a top coat on top of a lipstick.
This two in one Max Factor gloss (510, Radiant Rose) is perfect for when you need a quick touch up, if you want color use step one or if you want shine use step two!
The L’Oreal Glam Shine Juicy is another gloss that has a pointed applicator so its great for a quick touch up to keep in your bag.
Now for more Matte lipsticks (left to right) first we have a really light crystally pink; the Dior Rose Altesse in Pink Empress (359) this is a stunning lipstick and feels so luxurious on the lips.
If you’re wanting to go dark this Valentines this Dolce & Gabbana lipstick in ‘intense’ is a really deep berry purple. You only need a small application to get the gorgeous berry shade! As you can see its very matte but doesn’t leave your lips dry.
Possibly my favourite shade out of these is the Urban Decay Lipstick in ‘Manic’ this is a gorgeous tone of red and purple! It’s definitely a day and night lipstick and it’s really smooth and moisturising!
The L’Oreal lip gloss in Rouge Soprano (301) acts like a gloss but for me, it stains in the lips more like a lipstick! It’s such a lovely berry read.
And finally the Yves Saint Laurent Lipstick in 55, this looks more of a shade of dark pink then red but on the lips give a dramatic red statement and again isn’t dry on the lips and lasts all day!
