If you’re trying to hold on to summer for just a little bit longer, one of our favourite ways is to add a pop of bold, sunny lip colour. Urban Decay’s Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color comes in five shades that are perfect for just about any season.
We love Punch Drunk, a bright orange that is so creamy it goes on like a dream. Although it’s a gloss and will leave your lips shiny, there’s no goopy texture. The best part is the foolproof application—it’s not sheer at all, so one swipe of the pencil is all you need.
Take a cue from New York Fashion Week: We’ve already seen the bright-lip trend on the Spring 2012 runways—at Jason Wu (where scarlet was topped with neon orange) and Luca Luca (which featured a berry-fuchsia)—and we’re getting a head start. —Melanie Kerr
