The 10 Best lipsticks
Whether going for a look that is glamorous or gothic, these colourful lippies will have you all smiles for the party season ahead
£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.
£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.
£26, Dolce & Gabbana, harrods.com
This is a smooth and rich caramel shade, and Dolce's make-up formulation is second to none.
£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.
£20, Laura Mercier, spacenk.com
This is good for those who are nervous about applying too much colour or looking too done.
£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.
£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.
£5.49, Rimmel, available nationwide
This pillar-box-red shade comes from Kate Moss's well-priced collection for Rimmel.
£8.16, L'Oréal Paris, available nationwide
This nude shade is easy to wear and versatile, sophisticated for daytime and understated for the evening.
£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.
