Want Kissably Soft Lips? Try A Lip Tint Now...
Going on a date? Your first instinct may be to reach for a red-hot lippie, but research has shown that the opposite sex prefer a more au naturel option. Here’s how to get super-soft, sexy and kissable lips in an instant.

The latest trend for smackers this year has been the no-commitment lip colour. Not only is it easy to maintain, it’s also appropriate to wear during the day while you’re at work, or at night for dinner and drinks.

Step 1 – Buff away dead skin with a gentle polish. Lush has one that tastes sweet and fresh – you’ll really have to stop yourself from eating it off your lips. Try Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub, $9.95

Step 2 – Drink lots of water all day, everyday. It may sound like a boring thing to do, but it’s important to up your hydration levels from the inside out. Nothing shows dehydration like dry, flaky skin.

Step 3 –  Pick a lippie.
