Choosing your lip colour

There’s a huge range of lip colour out there. Choose one you like that suits you:
- Glossy lipstick makes lips shiny but isn't long-lasting.
- Transparent lipstick highlights your smile with a very natural look.
- Matte lipstick is long-lasting and gives lips a smooth, ultra-sophisticated look.
- Satin/Sheer lipstick results in an intense, glossy colour and gives lots of coverage.
- Pearly/Frosted lipstick adds sparkle to your smile with light-reflecting effects.

Take a look at our guide to applying lipstick.

Your lip liner should be a tone darker than your lipstick.

Meanwhile, lip gloss makes your lips dazzle and shine, and can also hydrate and care for them. Take a look at our guide to choosing and applying lip gloss.
