Vivid Lips

The seasons best lip colours come in all shapes and sizes from the brightest red to the softest nude, but one thing is for sure… It’s got to have that hint of shine.

Lip colours are making a move to the glossy side, leaving behind those dry matte long-wears and progressing into creamier formulas with a soft glistening sheen.

Aside from looking great, lip colours with a hint of shine are way more comfortable to wear too!

The latest release lip colours all have a subtle sheen, BUT if you want to keep using the matte colours you already own you can easily add a dab of lip balm for a soft shine or a sweep of high shine gloss for a dramatic shine.
