The news is out: Rimmel has announced their best-selling lipstick shade as none other than “Heather Shimmers.” We thought we’d join in on the fun and get our Beauty Editor to tell us about her top 5 lipstick shades.
For long-lasting moisture
We love Clinique’s Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Grapest Grape, R290. Not only is it easy and creamy to apply, but it compliments most skin tones and lasts all day – one of those amazing lipstick shades for darker skin.
For the ultimate sultry shade
We love Mac’s Ruby Roo, R240. For a sexy night out on the town, Mac’s Ruby Roo is my must have shade. It’s creamy, dries matte and is bold – it screams vixen.
We love Clarins Joli Rouge Brillant Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick in Pink Sugar, R320. This is the perfect shade of pink for a ‘less- is-more’ look. An amazing lipstick that is super creamy, and its sheen is a showstopper. And best of all, it tastes a little bit fruity.
We love Yardley Longwear lips in Raison, R120. A dark lip colour for the ultimate chic look. It’s light-on-the-lips, yet gives super long- lasting wear, and best of all? The very affordable price of Yardley lipstick colours!
For the perfect nude
We love Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Louise, R505
The perfect nude shade that brings out a smoky eye. This is a classic brand and classic shade for a stylish woman.
For a classic red
We love Revlon’s new Super Lustrous Love Is On Lipstick in Revlon Red, R160. It’s a classic, flattering and fiery red lip shade that suits any skin tone, and stays put for hours without smudging.
For matte magic
We love The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid, R85 in Sicily Iris. It glides on effortlessly like a gloss, while moisturising dry lips and sets beautifully into a matte lipstick. Plus, it’s lightweight and long-lasting too.
