The ten best lipsticks

Close

<b>Sisley</b><br/> 
As you'd expect from Sisley, this Hydrating Lasting Lipstick in 'Mandarin' is packaged in luxurious gold. It smells deliciously old fashioned and looks amazing with a tan, but be wary if your teeth are not as white as you'd like, as it will only highlight the fact. <br/>

&lt;b&gt;Illamasqua &lt;/b&gt;&lt;br/&gt;
Illamasqua's cult cosmetic range offers an incredibly diverse range of colours, and aficionados love 'Liar', a quirky shade of pink that has unusual blue undertones. Great for achieving a Sixties look without the unflattering retro frosting. &lt;br/&gt;

&lt;b&gt;Read My Lips &lt;/b&gt;&lt;br/&gt;
The tubes that house this cute range of lipsticks are made of vintage newspaper and can even be recycled. 'Scoop' is a pretty antique pink that flatters a classic English rose complexion. &lt;br/&gt;

Fans of Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream will be pleased to know that they can also drench their lips in this Lip Protectant Stick. It contains SPF 15 which helps to protect against exposure to sun, while delivering the tiniest hint of rose. &lt;br/&gt;

&lt;b&gt;Clinique &lt;/b&gt;&lt;br/&gt;
This semi-sheer berry shade is called 'Black Honey' and works really well with darker skin tones. The Almost Lipstick range will also appeal to those of you that dislike thick, cloying lipsticks as it feels more like a tinted lip balm and doesn't require constant reapplication. &lt;br/&gt;

&lt;b&gt;Chanel &lt;/b&gt;&lt;br/&gt;
Rouge Coco is a new collection of 30 lipstick shades created for Chanel by make-up artist Peter Philips. This vampish shade of wine red, 'Byzantin', is my favourite. It looks gorgeous worn with pale skin and an LBD, just as Mademoiselle Chanel would have liked. &lt;br/&gt;

&lt;b&gt;Revlon &lt;/b&gt;&lt;br/&gt;
Nude lipsticks can be awkward to get right as lips naturally vary in colour. The trick is to choose a shade that makes your teeth look whiter and your skin brighter, giving your face warmth and definition. This one is called 'Nude Attitude' and contains subtle caramel undertones. &lt;br/&gt;

&lt;b&gt;Bobbi Brown &lt;/b&gt;&lt;br/&gt;
For a natural look, Bobbi Brown's make-up range is hard to beat. This best-selling shade of dusky rose is called 'Sandwash Pink' and is flattering to most skin tones. A great shade for everyday use. &lt;br/&gt;
