The 10 Best lipsticks

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Whether going for a look that is glamorous or gothic, these colourful lippies will have you all smiles for the party season ahead

1. Rouge Prodige lipstick in Passion Rose

£17.50, Clarins, clarins.co.uk

The lipstick is creamy and hydrating, so you won't feel dried out after a day's wear, nor will you suffer from annoying and unsightly cracking.

2. Lip Color in Aphrodisiac

£25, Tom Ford, 0870 034 2566

Tom Ford's super-high-end make-up range is pricey but brilliant, meaning this naughtily named Aphrodisiac will last for hours and hours. Oh, behave.

3. Animalier lipstick in Caramel

£26, Dolce & Gabbana, harrods.com

This is a smooth and rich caramel shade, and Dolce's make-up formulation is second to none.

4. Colour Elixir lipstick in Mulberry

£7.99, Max Factor, boots.com

This hue has a hint of berry to it, which feels more grown-up than a swipe of pure crimson, and adds a bit of silver-screen glamour.

5. Creme Smooth lip colour in Peche

£20, Laura Mercier,  spacenk.com

This is good for those who are nervous about applying too much colour or looking too done.

6. Lipstick in Creme D'Nude

£14, Mac, maccosmetics.co.uk

Mac's USP is dramatic, trend-busting make-up, so while this crimson hue is a keeper (red lips never go out of style), it's also matt when applied, so as to make a real fashion statement.

7. Rouge Pur Couture The Mats lipstick in Prune Virgin

£23.50, Yves Saint Laurent, available nationwide

A dark lip always works well in autumn, and this khaki-ish brown shade is one of the season's hits.

8. Kate Lasting Finish lipstick in 12

£5.49, Rimmel, available nationwide

This pillar-box-red shade comes from Kate Moss's well-priced collection for Rimmel.

9. Color Riche lipstick in Nude

£8.16, L'Oréal Paris, available nationwide

This nude shade is easy to wear and versatile, sophisticated for daytime and understated for the evening.

10. Hydrating Long-Lasting lipstick in L25

£32, Sisley, 020 7591 6380

Sisley's lipsticks resemble a bullet, which makes for a more precise application. This slides on easily and it won't budge.
