Eight great bright lipbalms
May 16th 2012
The latest lipbalms have bright, sheer colour as well as moisturising your lips. Here is our pick of the best on the market, from Clinique's new chubby sticks to a Soap & Glory bargain
It’s all very well seeing Hollywood celebs rocking a vampish red or fuchsia pink lipstick on the red carpet, but
back in the land of normality, it can feel a little OTT at a village dinner party - and make faces with anything short of an Angelina pout look altogether severe.
Look no further then than one of the bright lipbalms adorning our make-up counters for spring. In shades of cherry, strawberry or raspberry, their sheerness, combined with punchy pigmentation, gives a subtle but pout-enhancing finish, forgiving even the thinnest lips or the palest skintones. Wear with luminous skin and a lick of mascara for youthful, ever-ready glamour, day or night.
