From Revlon to Charlotte Tilbury – we tested the best hydrating lipsticks for winter | The Sun

I HAVE chronically dry lips, and in winter they get even more sore.

So, before the weather completely turns, I’ve been trying out hydrating lipsticks to help keep them moisturised.

BEAUTY: with Tara Leddem

Revlon Super Lustrous Glass Shine, £8.99, lookfantastic.com: From the look of this lipstick I would never have picked it up off the shelf.

But a make-up artist used it on me for an event and I loved it so much she gave it to me.

It offers the perfect amount of slip, so lips feel hydrated and the hint of colour works really well over liner.

It’s the most sheer of the three I tried, but that makes it versatile as you can wear it even when you don’t have any other make-up on.

My favourite and a staple in my bag.

Charlotte Tilbury Hyaluronic Happikiss Lipstick, £26, spacenk.com: This is more of a gloss texture than a lipstick, so the application can be a little bit messy.

It says to twist the base anti-clockwise to apply a little at a time, but as it doesn’t twist back down you end up wasting product.

To avoid this, it’s best to push it up just enough so that the lipstick is just above the plastic.

Once you’ve got to grips with the application, it’s more pigmented than any other hydrating lipstick I’ve tried and lasts much longer than you’d expect for a product with so many moisturising ingredients too.

La Perla Satin Lip Balm, £45, beautybylaperla.com: First, the packaging for this is stunning – it screams expensive and would make a great gift.

It’s the only bullet to have the traditional, pointed shape, which gives a more polished finish to the lipstick look, and the formula isn’t as soft as the others I tried.

Even though it feels nourishing, there’s less slip and it gives off a more grown-up subtle sheen than a glass-like gloss.

The pigmentation is still quite sheer, so you don’t need a mirror for top-ups.
