So I was pleasantly surprised when I came across Loud Lips – part of the new range from Look Beauty. Available in selected Superdrug stores for around £7, they’re reasonably priced and there’s a nice range of colours to choose from.
If, like me, you can’t really pull off a red lip, there’s some great alternative shades on the menu – check out Rock Candy, a gorgeous deep pink. My favourite though is Tangerine Cream (pictured above). A lover of anything peach, I made a beeline for this shade. Warm and creamy, the tangerine hue is the right side of orange, i.e doesn’t turn your teeth an off-white as so many similar shades do. Very flattering against a golden tan (mine being applied that morning, of course) and would offset a brown/bronze palette brilliantly.
Tip: looks great layered under a clear lip gloss. I recommend Dior Maximiser.
