Best Creamy Liquid Lipstick: Lip Maestro, $55, Giorgio Armani Beauty
The secret to the Lip Maestro’s luminous hue is its network of soft, “bouncy” pigment spheres that roll and morph with lip movements for seamless colour and comfort. The result is gorgeously luminous lips that allow light to bounce back.
This hydrating lip colour is infused with the antioxidant-rich Dahlia Variabilis flower extract, which helps counter free-radical damage, as well as shea butter and other emollients for unmatched hydration. The formula melts onto lips and leaves a long-lasting tint that doesn’t budge even after a long lunch.
Best Lip Treatment: Exfoliating Lip Scrubex, $22, Glov
Say bye to chapped, peeling lips. This gently exfoliates and improves circulation so that your puckers remain soft and plump. Simply wet the cloth and use gentle circular motions to slough away those unsightly flakes.
Best Matte Lipstick: Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Velvet Radical, $55, YSL Beauté
Packed with silky oils for uber-comfortable wear, this lipstick leaves a pigmented semi-matte finish that does not bleed or crack. The innovative slanted square bullet ensures a precise application, always.
Best Matte Liquid Lipstick: Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, $29, KVD Beauty
A cult favourite since its launch, this liquid lipstick glides on and leaves a comfortable fi lm of colour on the lips that dries to a dramatic matte fi nish. Its transfer-resistant and long-lasting formula also has lip conditioners to keep your pout hydrated without compromising on wear.
Best Tinted Lip Balm: Dior Addict Lip Glow, $52, Dior
This makeup-skincare hybrid is the perfect lip companion, especially when mask-wearing is still the norm. Formulated with 97 percent natural ingredients that provide up to 24 hours of hydration, it lends lips a subtle tint that enhances their natural colour.
