For every stylish female, there will always be that magical feeling when she comes to try on her first coat of a new lipstick. Instantly, a red hue can transform the face and highlight lips in the best possible light. But it’s not just shades of red that appeal to our cosmetic spending habits, as lip colours today can be found in almost every shade imaginable. There are plum and berry tones, nude and coffee tones, as well as pinks, peaches and pearly tones to name just a few. Think Cinderella when she steps into her glass slipper for the first time, then imagine picking out a beautiful pair of designer shoes for every day of the week. When you find the right lipstick you know you’ve hit the jackpot.
For fashionistas all across the continent, lip colours speak volumes and enable a person to feel at her most glamorous. Just as we accessorize with hair pins and jewellery, make-up is also a means to alter our appearance.
So if you’re going to add anything to your cosmetic wish list for the festive season, make sure you are stocked with one of these lipstick shades…

Here are some more lipstick faves from beauty’s must-have cosmetic brands:
Have you tried the new Lipstick Envy range from Estee Lauder? They are creamy and long lasting, perfect for long days and lunch meetings. Its a professional lipstick.
I just can’t even. You know how you get when you are in starvation mode and you stuff everything into your mouth? I did that when I was in the LA a few months ago at the NARS counter. I continued this behaviour when I got to London stopping over on the way back. Only to arrive back in Dubai and realise NARS had started selling in Dubai again. So what did I do? Go straight to NARS and buy more. Stop it Tamara.
Oxblood is all the rage, and all the brands are doing their own version. Burberry’s is rather delicious.
Pale & nude lipsticks bring out your eyes and give your look an effortless elegance.
