Did you put lip colour on ice because of masking? Personally, I never leave home without it, but have made a few adjustments to the colours and formulas I wear. As a statement shade lover, I’ve invested in more long wear formulas so when I want to wear red shades it doesn’t smudge all over my mask and my face. I have also embraced several rosy nude colour options which is a new vibe for me, as well as played with glosses, balms and powder-based lip colours when I want a softer finish.
With life re-booting, it’s time to have fun again with lip colour. Here are eight new ones to love.
