It’s easy to overlook your lips in warmer weather as we are usually busy applying sunscreen to the rest of our body.
However, with so many new offerings being released there is plenty out there to put the focus firmly back on your pout.
Here are some of the most exciting products launching this season:
Moisturise that mouth
Glow Hub recently unveiled Pep Talk, a new plumping peptide rescue balm/overnight treatment packed full of peptides, castor oil, avocado, vitamins E & B, and rosehip. It’s finished with a unique combination of peptides to help smooth lip creases, define contours, and boost fullness for a pillowy pout.
Goldfaden MD’s Lip Therapy, the brand’s first product within the lip category, is designed to create a smoother, fuller smile. This restorative lip treatment boasts a blend of moisturisers and a multi-active peptide complex, and contains hyaluronic acid, fruit berry wax, peptides, and vitamin E.
Plump up your pout
As always, Fenty Beauty continues to deliver in the beauty stakes and their latest must-have product is the Gloss Bomb Heat Universal Lip Luminizer + Plumper. If your smile needs volume, this is the one for you as it contains ginger root oil and capsicum fruit extract (pepper) for extra plumping power. Rich shea butter and vitamin E condition lips and lock in moisture, while the sheer hint of red delivers a sexy wet-look shine.
Lock in that colour
No summer outfit is complete without a slick of lipstick, and MAC’s shea butter and argan oil-infused Love Me Liquid Lipcolour is a show-stopping range with a hue for everyone. We love E for Effortless; the rich burgundy shade is perfect for those long summer nights.
Keep lips hydrated and kissable with Mavala’s new Lip Fantastic collection, which offers a palette of fiery florals, pretty pinks, and perfect peach tones. Marigold’s warm blush shade is just the thing for sun-kissed skin.
For a featherlight matte effect, we love Hourglass’ new Velvet Story Lip Cream range. Here’s a tip from the experts – for a truly soft-focus finish apply the colour to the bottom lip, press lips together, and then fade the cream out using your finger towards the edges of your mouth. Try the shade Hint for the perfect nude hue to take you from natural day beauty to an elegant evening look.
Scrub up that smile
Keep your lips smooth and flake-free with Barry M’s new Pineapple Lip Scrub. This tropical treat smells just like your favourite beach holiday and is formulated with vitamin E, avocado oil, and jojoba oil to soften and hydrate.
