Getting Lippy

Cheryl Cole?s first limited edition Color Riche lipstick ?Red Passion? in association with The Cheryl Cole Foundation in aid of The Prince?s Trust, with ?1 from every sale being donated to the foundation. ?I love wearing lipstick as it is makes me feel glamorous whatever the occasion. I chose this iconic luxurious, red shade as it is the perfect dramatic accessory. I am so thrilled the funds raised from my L?Or?al Paris lipstick can make a difference to people?s lives through my foundation with The Prince's Trust. When selecting the shade I chose one I felt would flatter most hair and skin types, and is the red that everyone wants in their make-up bag. I will be wearing my L?Or?al Paris Color Riche ?Red Passion? lipstick with minimal make-up and a touch of mascara to compliment the intense colour.? Cheryl Cole The campaign image was shot by Rankin for L?Or?al Paris. The Cheryl Cole Foundation The Cheryl Cole Foundation, which launched in April, supports The Trust?s work with young people in the North East, who have struggled at school, been unemployed for a long time and have been in trouble with the law or who are in or leaving care. More than three in four young people supported by The Trust move into jobs, education or training. New Cheryl Cole Limited Edition Color Riche Lipstick in Red Passion RRP: ?8.16

Best Nude Lipstick: L?Or?al Paris Color Riche Collection Lipstick Priv?e in Cheryl, €11.99

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.? Zo? 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
