Top_5_Lip_Colours_maxmade.com.au-1

Softer, matter, glossier, longer lasting – there is a new wave of lip colours on the scene and it’s time to pay homage to this season’s best of the best.

This season we saw the return of the statement lip – and the good news is that any shade goes. Gloss, matte, satin and stains, some things become a timeless classic for a good reason but what makes this collection of pout makers so modern… their texture and wearability!

The lip is such a wearable trend even for the most makeup-challenged of us. This week I wanted to focus on a collection of lip colours that have me excited, whether it be for their texture, colour, longevity or how user friendly they are. Either way this top 5 Maxmade approved line-up are doing a lip service to the season’s most wearable trend!

Ellis Faas Creamy Lips

I love a double-threat and the Ellis Faas are unapologetic about it. Dabbed straight onto the lip using the angle sponge tip applicator or layered up, these richly pigmented colours can be worn as a satin finished stain or a bold red carpet ready lip colour. With 9 neat colours both classic and cool to choose from, Ellis’s Creamy Lips are a hot favourite of mine for their usability and one-of-a-kind finish and texture. Favourite shades are pale Peach, Chocolate Caramel & Bright Red

Stila All Day Liquid Lipsticks

I’m not going to lie I’m pretty much obsessed with liquid to matt lip colours and Stila has stolen my heart with their range of colours choices. With one of my favourite applicators on the market when it comes to precision, Stila’s All Day Wear Liquid Lip Colours are not only one of the easiest lip colours to apply but give you maximum effect due to the boldness of the matte finish. Tip; Use a cotton tip to rub off the edges of bolder shades like red & plum shades for a modern soft-focus look. This industry secret tip accentuate the size of your lips making them look larger than life! My picks include, Caramello (Nude), Baci (duty Rose nude) & Como (bright Violet/Purple).

Tom Ford Patent Finish Lip Colours

Did you know that one of the first steps Ford takes in creating a new fashion collection is to design the makeup? This shows him what sort of woman will be designing for! It’s not like the genius that is Tom Ford to do anything in halves and he hasn’t stopped with his new range of Lipstick Pens. The innovative product is just as good as his original lipsticks. The formula is light, shiny, and hydrating with colour that packs a punch. What I love about these lip pens is the range of 8 berry-delicious shades from strawberry to black berry!

Charlotte Tilbury Matt Revolution Lipsticks

If there is one makeup artist that is famous for her MATTE red carpet lip colours it’s Charlotte Tilbury. Famous for mixing luminous pigments into her celebrity clientele’s matte lipsticks before applying making their lips glow from within! Rest easy the makeup queen has come out with 10 modern matte lip shades that contain her secret 3D mix of luminous pigments giving us all access to light-from-within matte lips. To top things off Tilbury has revolutionised the tip of theses ‘matte is back’ lipsticks with a square angled tip mimicking the shape of a lip brush. Is there anything this woman hasn’t thought of? My fav shades are Sexy Sienna (peach), Lost Cherry (poppy pastel peach) & Red Carpet Red
