NEW! Lipstick Reviews

Giorgio Armani, Tom Ford and MAC

This autumn, I'm working my way through three new lipstick ranges. Here's my pick of the bunch...

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets, £27
Without a doubt, this is the most bizarre and brilliant liquid lipstick formula I’ve ever tried. This applies wet and dries to feel exactly like a bare lip, but all of a sudden saturated in pigment.

The finish is so thin that you can’t feel it on the lips and also it doesn’t crack or dry.

Beware the lasting power – once you’ve committed to a shade, only an oil based remover will remove it. These are simply magnificent – here are the swatches.

My favourite shade is 500 which is alarmingly pink and completely brightens up any complexion.

Tom Ford Soleil Lip Foils, £39
This Christmas, Tom Ford are releasing six shimmer lipstick shades as part of their Soleil collection. Compared to the usual Tom Ford lipsticks, these are finer in consistency and much more shimmering.

These are creamy and luxurious to the touch, and they have that lovely, powdery lipstick smell. What really makes them though is the white and gold packaging. My prediction is that the gold-pink will be a sellout.

MAC Liptensity, £17.50
For pigmented, intense colour, the Liptensity range from MAC is divine. MAC have teamed up with Maureen Seaberg, a tetrachromat with the ability to see an enormous spectrum of colour in pure form, lots of which would be invisible to a normal person’s naked eye.

She’s worked with them to create 24 lipsticks of pure, intense colour, each in a huggable lip formula. The texture is creamy but not too slippy, and the wear is impressive but needs a top up through the day like most lipsticks.

My favourite shade is Medium Rare.

Whether you want something you can’t feel, something to add shimmer or a bold, bright colour, that’s your lip wardrobe sorted for this season.
