From new lip colors and textures to lip-care remedies and maintenance heroes, here are five of our favorite new beauty products to keep our lips in prime kissing condition.
Christian Louboutin Rouge Stiletto Lipstick
Lip gloss is all the rage, but it will never take the place of a perfect, red pout. To remind well-heeled people of that fact, Christian Louboutin Beauty launched Rouge Stiletto, the luxury brand’s first major lipstick product in eight years. Stiletto is the first lipstick format packaged in a slim stick, and comes in 12 shades, most notably, Rouge Louboutin which gorgeously matches the shoe designer’s famous red-soled stilettto shoes. Sold through luxury retailers including Bergdorf Goodman, Harrods and Neiman Marcus, the Stiletto lipstick comes in creamy Lumi Matte and Glossy Shine options with a liquid lipstick finish debuting this year.
Fenty Double Gloss Lip Layering Duo
Two layers are better than one. two layers with the new Double Gloss Lip Layering Duo from Rhianna’s beauty brand Fenty. Start with a swipe of Fenty Treatz Hydrating + Strengthening Lip Oil for cushioning hydration, then finish the look by layering your favorite Gloss Bomb shade for next-level shine. With 12 colors in all to choose from, you’ll find your own custom look and care for your lips at the same time.
Thrive Causemetics Lip-Plumping Peptide Gloss
Peptide-powered, ultra-hydrating Lip-Plumping Peptide Gloss instantly plumps and revives lips with a hint of tint and all-day moisture for visibly fuller, smoother-looking lips. It comes in 10 high-shine colors designed to enhance your natural lips with a sheer wash of color or to top off your favorite lip color. Noteworthy is Thrive Causemetic’s philosophy that goes beyond skin deep. The brand creates vegan, 100% cruelty-free formulas containing proven ingredients, and shares a portion of every sale to non-profit causes that empower diverse communities.
Rhode Peptide Lip Treatment
Hailey Bieber is a supermodel and superstar wife (after all, she’s Mrs. Justin Bieber), and he’s also the founder and creative director of two-year-old Rhode skincare line which features the popular Peptide Lip Treatment in limited-edition flavors and hues. “Wear it all day and overnight to keep those lips plump and juicy,” Hailey says of the restorative lip treatment for naturally plump, pillowy-soft lips. The formula includes shea butter, peptides, cupuacu and babassu — ingredients that are great for glossy hydration.
EOS Super Balm
This super hydrating super smoothing lip balm tastes like sweet, juicy goodness in flavors including watermelon frose, coconut milk, honey apple and mango melonade, but it’s not silly kids stuff. Made for sensitive skin, EOS Super Balm is dermatologist recommended, using three hydrating butters — sustainable natural shea butter, cocoa and avocado — but without junk like paraben and phthalates. The two-packs are perfect for tossing one in your purse and one in your makeup drawer.
Monastery Attar Floral Repair Concentrate
Attar Floral Repair Concentrate is Monastery’s essential-oil-free nourishing balm, full of precious ingredients that protect skin and boost its glow. Hazelnut, rosehip seed, rare rose extracts and jasmine sambac fortify skin with essential fatty acids and vitamins A, B, C, and E, which stimulate regeneration, repair UV damage, and soften fine lines. To activate moisture retention apply a thin veil of Attar Repair Concentrate for day use and a thicker layer to seal in moisture overnight. Because Attar is a luxurious botanical balm (beeswax free), it can be applied over the lips as well as the entire face including the delicate under-the-eye area.
