Lush lips forever
There was a time when you had to choose between long-lasting lippy or perfectly moisturised lips. Not any more. L’Oreal Endless Lip Colour (around $22) gives you up to eight hours of gorgeous lip colour with a beautiful satiny finish that won’t dry out your lips. Choose from 24 a range of sensational colours from neutrals and pretty pinks to something totally sexy like the killer red Crimson Joy. Milla Jovavich is a fan too: “It does not budge or feather, and stays colour-true all day long as if I had just put it on,” she says. See for yourself. Available from selected pharmacies, department and variety stores.
