I doubt we'll ever get enough of matt lipsticks but metallic lipsticks will be your lip’s BFF this festive season. With shimmering lipstick and sparkling glosses, the metallics are made for those #MakeupJunkie selfie posts. 

Whether you go for subtle nudes or dramatic pops of colour, make sure add at least one to your lipstick collection. Here are a few of our favourite. 

Catrice Liquid Lip Powder in Copper and Spice: Goes on like a liquid but sets with a matt powdery finish. Perfect for those who can’t do without their matt lipsticks. Great coverage.

Essence Metal Shock Lip Paint in Twisted Sista: This concentrated lip cream feels light but offers great coverage with a smooth finish. The colour is intense and long lasting.

NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Cream Galactic: This out of space colour is perfect for a more edgy look. Love the glistening  metallic finish and the gel like glossy feel. 

MAC Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson Lipglass: The bronze shade with gold pearl shimmer is summer heat in a tube. If the golden shade doesn’t win your heart then knowing that 100% of the selling price of all VIVA GLAM lipsticks and lipglass goes towards our MAC AIDS Fund.

Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Metals in Crimson Chrome: It glides on smoothly, offers intense colour and full coverage with a super high-shine of a glossy finish. This shade is your metallic version of the classic red lips.
