Lipstick, the fall update under $50

Vera Wang Fall 2013 clean face and wine lips-- this the sexy way to wear a  hot trend!


To keep your red lips looking fresh, go for either a matte or super glossy finish. The look for lips this season is both clean and extreme.


The newest beauty trend for lips is a bouquet of deep wine lip colours. Wine lipstick, or gloss, can be femme fatale or very Lolita.  The best and freshest way to wear intense lip colour was seen at Vera Wang, where the look was innocent and sexy. The models’ hair was worn long and flowing. Their makeup created a flawless but natural looking face, with defined lashes and brows to compliment full, cabernet coloured lips.


Soft pinks and nudes are also a trend this fall, worn with black cats-eye liner or the new, softer, smoky eye in grey, BECCA : This elegant lips stick is a perfect moist Merlot!sienna, or lavender.


Here are a few of our favourite new shades for fall and why:


Pink:butter London Tinted Balm Axis Kiss. Hands down, one of the best “Pretty pinks.” The colour stays true; it doesn’t go a weird bubble gum or day-glow shade after an hour. For a cream, It stays on well and leaves lips looking moist and kissable.


Nude: Dolce&Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Cinnamon, a soft, pinky nude. This line has a lovely range of the soft, sexy nudes Italians love and do best. Revlon: Super Lustrous Lipstick in Blushing Nude. Napoleon Perdis: Devine Lipstick in Hess. This is a feminine pinky-nude which is very flattering.


Napolean Perdis Devine Hess  is a very warm and wearable pink-nudeRed: Dolce&Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Iconic, a deep red. Chanel: Rouge Allure in Pirate, a deep, sexy, blood red.  Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge is a Pigmented Red that will not come off. Wear it matte or glossy.


Wine: BECCA Ultimate Matte Lip Colour in Antoinette – Merlot, a sheer, but very pigmented and hydrating lipstick. The shade is very balanced and as easy to wear as a wine shade gets. For a lipstick that is so hydrating, it has great staying power.  You may also want to trySimply Vera Vera Wang Cosmetics Smoothing Lipcolor in # 712 only at Khlols though you may also find it online.s


Blow them a kiss

Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump LipstickYour lips are always talking, even when you aren’t saying a word. So make sure they are sending the message you want. Depending on the colour and product you use, your lips can look bold and business-like, soft and innocent, or sensual and sexy. Avon has three new products for any look you want.
Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump Lipstick has a core of super-hydrating and plumping ingredients. According to our designated tester it feels fabulous and smells terrific. She looked fabulous in the Starlet Red. FYI darlings, red lipstick is a must-have for all fashionistas this fall! Starlet Red is a rich, but soft red that will flatter many skin tones and is easy to wear.
 SpectraColor Lipstick Customized lip color in a click is what you get with the new SpectraColor Lipstick from Avon. According to Avon there are seven shades of lip color packed into one sleek, innovative package. It’s a great idea — many shades for the price or one and no lipstick clutter in your bag.
It’s created for the woman who loves to change her look. Make-up artist Jill Dempsey gives the following tip:
“To make lips appear fuller, apply a darker shade first then click to the lighter shade and dab the center of your lower lip for eye-catching shine,” explains Jillian.
I am experienced make-upon editor, but I found it hard to find seven different shades of lipstick in this product. I could manage a light shade, dark shade, and something in between. That alone would appeal to many women who like a streamlined approach to make-up. The formula is rich and light with Vitamins A,C, and E. In texture it is between a lipstick and gloss; just what you want for youthful look and an easy-to-apply product. 
3-in-1 wand has options galore!My own favourite was the Pro 3-in-1 Lip Wand. I love the compact wand; it gives me a pencil, lipstick, and gloss all together. I regualrly use all three. I like the depth it gives my lips. That is what Avon resident celebrity make-up artist Jill Dempsey likes about it too. I find lip colour lasts for hours when I apply liner and lipstick under gloss. And I still have still get light, sexy look if I chose a beige-pink shade such as nude. Often, I just wear the liner and gloss for day or a quick swipe of lipstick – I love having all the options at hand – literally. This is worth waiting for, but you won’t have to wait long. It is out in July.

Fool-proof lip colour

 Veteran make-up artist Susan Posnick created Coloressential lipsticks to provide women with a fool-proof way to select a flattering lip colour. Coloressential is a collection of five perfectly balanced shades that will look good on any woman. Editor Alice Farnsworth and I tried on the same shadeMilan, a red-brown. Alice is a pink person and I am a yellow. It looked better on Alice, but it worked for both of us. It is a matter of preference; I usually wear a pinky brown and would have worn the Dubai or Dallas happily.

The lipstick is formulated with unique ingredients; it has paracress, an African plant rich in antioxidants, pomegranate, olive, mineral, and Vitamins A and E. It feels fabulous. Alice says the staying power is terrific. I am eyeing a tube of Dubai and will get back to you! It costs $17 US.
