Kicking off with lips, we guarantee pout perfection with this edit.
Best Nude Lipstick: L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Collection Lipstick Privée in Cheryl, €11.99
“The perfect nude that suits everyone. The addition of lanolin and sesame seed oils gives this formula a super-moisturising feel, and the distinct old-fashioned perfume scent adds to the glam of using it.” Kim O’Sullivan
Best Lipstick Range: Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipsticks, €28
“The luxury lipstick Holy Grail. The pigment actually lasts, even after a few hours of chatting, eating and drinking, without leaving lips with that waxy, dry feeling. Also, the magnetic casing means you won’t lose the lid in your handbag. A nice touch.” Zoë Clark
Best Gloss Range: Shiseido Lacquer Gloss, €25
“Dick Page is the veteran make-up artist behind this range, and he knows a thing or two about make-up! The shine is high on saturation without an oily finish, and the finish is gloss perfection.” Christine Lucignano
Best Lip Innovation: No 7 BB Lips Beauty Balm SPF 15, €11.75
“A lovely alternative to a basic lip balm, as this formula gives heaps of hydration with a hit of pigment, and also some environmental protection, for a perkier-looking pout.” Christine Lucignano
Best Lip Balm: Elave Facial Age Delay Lip Defense SPF 20, €7.95
“It’s so important to include SPF in lip treatments, and this contains the best one – zinc oxide. With castor seed oil, beeswax, shea butter and dimethicone high up on the list of ingredients, it’s also a moisturising powerhouse.” Dr Susan Mayou
