No one knows lipstick like WGSN Senior Editor of Beauty Theresa Yee does, which is why she’s trying out the latest colours and best products every week (you’re welcome)
A red lipstick can instantly update your look and add sex appeal to an off-duty outfit in one swipe.
This week’s lipstick love goes to Ciaté for its new Satin Kiss Lipstick in Velveteen. A classic red, it is part of the new autumn colour collection from Olivia Palermo – her second make-up collaboration for the brand.
What I love about this lipstick is the soft, velvety texture. Unlike most matte lipsticks that tend to dry out my lips, this semi-matte lipstick contains moisturising properties – so there is no need to apply lip balm beforehand. The colour pigments are pretty good too.
It lasted all day, requiring only a couple of re-applications throughout the day. This is a statement lip colour that will get you noticed, so leave the rest of the face natural to allow your pout to stand out!
