More of an understated kinda girl? A wash of sheer colour is your beat. We’re crushing hard on Elizabeth Arden’s Plush Up Lip Gelato (R295) Poppy Pout – the creamy gel formula melts into lips, leaving a sheer, fuller-looking pout.

These lips look like summer! To get this sizzling look, we applied Clinique Pop Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer (R295) Happy Pop on the entire mouth, then lined the outer edges with Clinique Quickliner For Lips Intense (R295) Intense Passion. Easy as!

Metallic lips are vibrant, unexpected and on trend. Love this chrome pout? We used Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip (R330) Foiled Brat – a deep, sexy berry hue that works on all skin tones.

For mega shine, try Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss (R150). We’re smitten with the Royal shade – an edgy purple that gives a strong, opaque colour the applicator wand from the centre of the upper lip outwards, then glide it across the entire bottom lip.
