10 New Lip Products To Have On Your Radar

Months of cold weather and central heating left your lips in need of some TLC? Or perhaps you’re on the hunt for a fresh new lip shade for spring. Luckily, there’s a wealth of new products that promise to perk up, moisturise and revive your lips for the season ahead. Here are 10 that we’re loving right now.

“I love Gucci Westman’s products – you can really tell that they’re informed by her years as a make-up artist – and the Lip Suede is a firm favourite. Despite being matte, it feels really light to wear and is packed with hydrating peptides that plump the lips, as well as vitamins C and E to nourish. It’s refillable, too.”
“I am naturally drawn to a matte rather than a glossy lip, and I also love products that are low-maintenance, so this Hourglass lipstick is a star product for me. It’s infused with primer, giving it real staying power, and offers buildable coverage, meaning you can adapt it to your day – keeping it subtle for daytime then building it up for an evening out.”
“Beauty Pie is great at developing make-up-skincare hybrid products that offer an element of treatment as well as aesthetic benefits. This lip oil felt really nourishing and hydrating while also adding a subtle shine – like a balm but with added oomph. A new handbag essential for me, for those days when I want a subtle lip.”
“Rhode is such a buzzed-about brand, so I was keen to see if this lived up to the hype. Thankfully, it did! It’s a lip treatment that feels very luxurious and adds a lovely sleek shine. I also tried it as an intensive treatment at night, applying a thick layer before bed, and found it really helped to lock-in moisture throughout the following day.”
“A lip oil is a great alternative to often-sticky glosses. This one, by Summer Fridays, was nice to apply and offered a mirror-like shine while plumping my lips. I loved the choice of shades, too – four great neutral pinks to complement every skin tone.”
“I love the impact that this gloss delivers – I’m a huge fan of red lipstick, but have always stuck to matte or a light sheen before. Now, it’s definitely what I’ll turn to when I’m in the mood for a glossy finish, as the colour really lasted and it didn’t feel sticky at all. One of my favourite things is the in-built metal applicator, which felt really nice to use.”
“My lips can get really dry and sore in the winter, so I’m always on the lookout for a fast-acting treatment. This ointment is a new favourite for me. It visibly repaired my lips within one application, and I felt the benefit of its moisturising ingredients long after – making it a great base for a colour to be applied on top.”
“This clever product looks like a gloss but feels like a balm, with subtle shine but nourishing ingredients like lanolin and vitamin E, which lock in moisture and plump the lips. I loved the applicator, which is a nice size and distributes just the right amount of product each time.”
“This gloss took me back to the ’90s, thanks to the shimmery particles in the shade I tried, Martini. Despite worrying it would look a little too ‘glittery’, the shimmer was actually very subtle and the formulation felt very hydrating, with no sign of stickiness.”
“Testing out all these products has made me a lip-oil convert, and I particularly loved this new release from Gisou. It was so nourishing, but also added great definition – perfect for those days when I don’t feel like wearing lipstick but still want a dash of colour and shine.”
