Getting Lippy

In case you’ve missed them, join us while we lust after this year’s Beauty Awards winners.


Kicking off with lips, we guarantee pout perfection with this edit.


Best Nude Lipstick: L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Collection Lipstick Privée in Cheryl, €11.99


“The perfect nude that suits everyone. The addition of lanolin and sesame seed oils gives this formula a super-moisturising feel, and the distinct old-fashioned perfume scent adds to the glam of using it.” Kim O’Sullivan

Best Lipstick Range: Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipsticks, €28


“The luxury lipstick Holy Grail. The pigment actually lasts, even after a few hours of chatting, eating and drinking, without leaving lips with that waxy, dry feeling. Also, the magnetic casing means you won’t lose the lid in your handbag. A nice touch.” Zoë Clark

Best Gloss Range: Shiseido Lacquer Gloss, €25


“Dick Page is the veteran make-up artist behind this range, and he knows a thing or two about make-up! The shine is high on saturation without an oily finish, and the finish is gloss perfection.” Christine Lucignano

Best Lip Innovation: No 7 BB Lips Beauty Balm SPF 15, €11.75


“A lovely alternative to a basic lip balm, as this formula gives heaps of hydration with a hit of pigment, and also some environmental protection, for a perkier-looking pout.” Christine Lucignano

Best Lip Balm: Elave Facial Age Delay Lip Defense SPF 20, €7.95


“It’s so important to include SPF in lip treatments, and this contains the best one – zinc oxide. With castor seed oil, beeswax, shea butter and dimethicone high up on the list of ingredients, it’s also a moisturising powerhouse.” Dr Susan Mayou
