Whatever the occasion, there’s one thing that can instantly transform your look and boost your confidence: a gorgeous high-impact lip colour. But if you suffer from dry lips, you might want to give matte or velvet colours a swerve and opt for one of the best moisturising lipsticks. But before we come on to the colours, I cannot stress enough the significance of lip care, particularly in London or New York, where the weather can play havoc with our skin. Moisturising lipsticks not only finish off your look, but also provide essential hydration, preventing dryness, chapping, and flakiness. Infused with nourishing ingredients like shea butter, vitamin E, and natural oils that keep your lips soft, supple (and kissable), they care for your lips while they colour.

To increase the longevity of your lip colour, gently exfoliate your lips before application to remove any dead skin and enhance smoothness. In addition, applying a lip balm (but too much!) or treatment as a base can create a perfect canvas for lipstick application, ensuring optimal moisture retention. Your lips will thank you! Now, check out my top picks for moisturising lipsticks to buy now.
