My current lip-love is the beautiful Jolie Rouge Brilliant lipstick from Clarins. Actually: that, and the Chanel La Favorite from the Spring collection, but the Chanel is a little drying at the moment whereas the Clarins is ultra-moisturising. It has a really juicy texture and a sparkling finish that makes my lips look plumper and smoother.
I’ve been using shade 17, Watermelon (smells incredible, but I know that shouldn’t sway my opinion!) which is a bright pinky-coral from the spring makeup range, but there’s quite a large range of permanent shades. If you’re looking for something sheer and moisturising that still imparts a nice amount of colour then this is a perfect happy medium – Escentual have some good swatches on their blog page if you want to see just how bright Watermelon is!
Escentual also have this on special offer at £13.60 instead of £17, with free delivery. Escentual.com
