Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Addiction

Inika Vegan Lipstick in Auburn Ambition

For the holistic honeys, veer your pout Inika’s direction. This is the your lippy you need if you’re all about vegan, cruelty-free products – from the number one Certified Organic cosmetic brand in the world. Enriched with avocado and argan oils, this is one smooth (cosmetic) criminal.

Maybelline The Loaded Bolds Lip Color in Raging Rasin

This is the exact lipstick makeup artist Erin Parsons used to create Gigi’s swoon-worthy pout above. Pucker up like Hadid, and dot this deep berry for a dark lip with a punchy pop. Insider tip; Parsons dabbed Wickedly White in the centre of lips, and Pitch Black to the outer corners and blended for a broodier effect.

Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Juniper Water

This lipstick is exactly the kind of purple power you need come winter. 100% natural – yes, you heard right – this little guy is wholly nourishing, with eight hours of conditioning moisture to ward off any persistent chill that might freeze your way.
