5 Reasons to Swap Your Lip Balm for a Vibrant Liquid Lipstick

A vibrant liquid lipstick in red, pink or raspberry is a fresh way to update your beauty look for spring

Vibrant pouts of all shades, including candy-apple red, guava pink and ripe raspberry, showed up on the spring/summer runways. While bold lips can be a tricky look to pull off, our favourite way to score this style is with the season’s newest liquid lip colours. The user-friendly wands offer up both matte and glossy finishes and allow you to draw a precise line and easily reapply colour throughout the day for a truly brilliant finish.
