Whether you are planning a date with your love or a big night out with your girlfriends, it’s nice to add a pop of colour to your look to give added confidence and a little touch of sass.
Here are our top 5 picks from the amazing lipsticks available at the moment.
1. Go bold or go home
Sometimes nothing says romance like a bold red lip, and Rimmel have the perfect colour to make that statement.
Rimmel London’s Kate No.1 lipstick ( RRP £5.49) is a limited edition lipstick to raise money for Sport Relief. The smooth creamy texture gives you bold colour for up to 8 hours.
To make it last longer we would recommend using a lip liner in the same colour around your lip line and then fill in the rest of the lips before applying your lipstick.
2. Pretty in pink
If you want to go for a subtle yet sweet lipstick to add a flush of colour to your look, we recommend the amazing range of pink lipsticks from the Colour Riche collection from L’Oreal Paris.
The Colour Riche Pink collection offers a range of pink lipsticks for every skin tone, we especially like the Naomi’s Pink (RRP £6.99) which is “a mauve ‘tea’ pink lipstick, the epitome of refinement, bringing the appearance of freshness and sophistication to fair skin tones.”
The formula is creamy but looks quite matte on the lip, with top ups needed every few hours.

3. Plum seductress
Charlotte Tilbury has brought out two new lip colours for Valentine’s day, and we have to admit that we are pretty smitten.
The sexier of the two is Kiss Chase from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range which is one of Charlotte’s signature ranges. It is a lovely plum pink colour with a rich creamy finish, leaving your lips looking sumptuous and kissable.
“Kiss Chase is a tawny berry hue, part of my original lipstick range for youth-boosted, nourished and hydrated lips.”
Get your hands on this lovely lipstick from her online store (RRP £23) or in Charlotte Tilbury concessions from the 14th February.
4. Natural lips are sometimes the best
The Dior Addict Lip Glow (RRP £23.50) is an amazing lip balm from Dior that enhances your natural lip colour, to nourish and moisturise while at the same time giving your lips a lovely flush of colour. It has been around a while now, but is still one of our favourites.
“Enhance the lips and bring out their natural colour. The Color Reviver technology in Dior Addict Lip Glow reacts to the moisture level of the lips, releasing its active ingredients and instantly flushing the lips with their natural colour. Its formula enriched with Wild Mango and Luffa Cylindrica protects and moisturizes throughout the day.”
We love this lip balm, as it feels luxurious on your lips but also give your face a lift with a hint of colour. A great everyday product or perfect for a date night look with a stronger eye.
5. Purple passion
If you don’t want your date to take their eyes off your lips then we recommend the Sheen Lipstick from MAC Cosmetics in the colour ‘Quite the Thing’, it combines the colour impact of a Lipstick with the shine sheen of a Lipglass (RRP £17.50).
Perfect for sexy seductive lips that look good enough to eat.
“with no compromise. Lightweight, non-sticky, slick to apply and comfortable to wear. This is a must-have for all those who have craved this kind of fusion.”
Here are some of our favourites from the high street and more expensive brands, we hope you like our top 5. The most important thing about wearing lipstick is to be confident with your choice and work it.
