Pick Your Lip Look: Which One Suits you Best? | DB Cosmetics NZ | 01

Most of us leave the lips til last when we’re applying makeup, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t give them attention. If you haven’t found your go-to lip look, it’s time to have some fun and play around with different styles.

With lip balms to lipsticks and lip plumping treatments, DB Cosmetics has you covered. Read on for our roundup of the best lip looks and curate your beauty bag!

For shiny, kissable lips: Lush Moisturising Lipstick

When you want show-stopping, shiny lips, swipe on the Lush Moisturising Lipstick. Unlike other opaque lipsticks, it doesn’t have a dense and heavy texture. Instead, the creamy formula glides on easily and coats the lips in medium to full, buildable colour. The result? An intense colour payoff and high-shine finish, making it perfect for those days when you want to rock a bold lip.

The moisturising lipstick is infused with Hyaluronic acid and Q10 to hydrate and plump your pout, and Jojoba oils to soften the lips. You can wear it comfortably all day, and rest easy knowing it won’t crack, smudge or budge, even if you’re eating or drinking.

For gorgeous satin lips: Bold Longwear Lipstick

If you’re going to be out and about all day — or night! — reach for the Bold Longwear Lipstick. It has a bright, pigmented base with little to no shine, so it feels soft and satin-like on the lips and has a beautiful cream finish. Thanks to its longwear formula, the long-lasting lipstick will only require minimal touch-ups during the day and you won’t have to worry about reapplying it after every sip or bite of food.

Available in a range of rich, intense colours, the formula is non-drying and delivers maximum moisture and coverage. Whether you’re heading into a big meeting or an event, it’ll give you the ultimate confidence boost. Hello, power lipstick!

Top tip: The secret to even longer-lasting lipstick is sandwiching the colour, so line your lips with the Pigment Pout Longwear Lip Liner first. Follow with the Bold Longwear Lipstick and another coat of lip liner, and you’re done!

For chic, matte lips: Matte Lipstick and Lip Lock Longwear Lip Stain

The matte lipstick trend isn’t going anywhere, and these two products will help you achieve that beautiful, velvety finish.

A must for any lip makeup lover, the Lip Stix Crayon is packed with ingredients to soften your pout and even has a built-in sharpener for extreme precision. Plus, its non-drying and lightweight formula makes it super comfortable for all day wear. Available in matte and satin finishes, it comes in nine beautiful shades and has an intense colour payoff.

If you’re a fan of multitasking lip stains, try the Lip Lock Longwear Lip Stain. The highly pigmented formula offers 24-hour wear, and contains Green Tea and Aloe Vera so your lips won’t dry out. The best lip stain, available in six red and purple shades, and also doubles as a blush!

For ultra-glossy lips: Lavish Lip Gloss

Think of the Lavish Lip Gloss as the grown-up version of the lip gloss you slathered on as a tween. A single wave of the wand will deliver a juicy, semi-sheer sheen to your lips and enhance what you already have — without that sticky feeling.

Our pick for no-makeup makeup looksit comes in a variety of pink and peachy shades, as well as bold colours like raspberry and magenta. For a true throwback, you can also go for a classic clear lip gloss.

Either way, the lip gloss will leave you with a long-lasting, glassy shine. It’s also enriched with beeswax and vitamin E to soften and hydrate your lips.

For full, plumped lips: Lip Boost Plumping Treatment

Wondering how to plump lips naturally? Fake a fuller pout with the bestselling Lip Boost Plumping Treatment. The high-shine lip gloss plumps your lips to deliver instant volume — no needles necessary.

The lightweight lip treatment is formulated with vitamin E and Q10 to hydrate and smooth your lips. For the best lip plumping gloss look, wear it alone or on top of your favourite lipstick.

Don’t worry if it tingles a little bit — that means it’s working its magic!

For soft, hydrated lips: Lip Balm

Sometimes, all you need is a lip balm to hydrate your lips and add a little shine.

The ultimate handbag hero, the Lip Elixir Nourishing Lip Treatment is the lip balm every girl needs. It deeply moisturises to heal cracked, chapped lips, leaving the lips feeling soft and soothed. The dry lips treatment is perfect worn alone, and can also be used to prep your pout for lipstick.

If your lips are in pretty good condition, the Paw Paw Plus will keep them that way. With Vitamin E, Cocoa Seed, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and Paw Paw, the Paw Paw ointment deeply nourishes and protects the lips from drying out.
