BEST FOR: AMPLIFYING
This one is at the top of our lust list, and it’s not hard to see why. The pearly 3D flecks instantly makes lips look bigger, and the pink colour transforms into a violet hue when you look at it at different angles. Divine. Chantecaille Galactic Lip Shine in Aurora, $45
BEST FOR: STAINING
Coat lips with Revlon’s Moisture Stain for a glossy look that dries to a light stain after a few hours of wear. Top up your colour again with the same product, or dab a clear gloss or balm over your lips for a muted effect. Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in Shanghai Sizzle, $25.95
BEST FOR: MATTIFYING
If it’s a non-glossy effect you’re after, these new Rimmel additions are perfect for you. The texture is airy, creamy and light, and the wand applicator means that you can precisely apply the colour before it dries to a matte finish. Rimmel London Apocalips Matte Lip Velvet in Atomic Rose, $15.95
BEST FOR: LONG-WEARING
Take two parts lipstick and one part gloss, and you’ll end up with this Too Faced Lipstick that won’t budge even after a whole day of wear. Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Berry, $28
BEST FOR: MOISTURISING
Hate the look of dry, chapped lips? This tinted gloss from YSL is made with a hybrid of hydrating oils (such as jojoba and macadamia seed) to prevent them from drying out. YSL Tint In Oil in in No. 5, $49
