Even though we’re all wearing masks, there are times when you actually need to splatter on some lipstick. To help you achieve the the perfect pout, here’s our list of the most luscious lipsticks – that you should slip into your bag – right now.

Rouge Dior

Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, Peter Philips, has revamped the brand’s Rouge Dior lipstick line. There are a whopping 72 colours to pick from but we recommend this signature shade in #999 matte for spring. The best part? The lipstick comes in a new refillable packaging.

HK$310 each available at Dior beauty

Rouge Allure Velvet Le Lion de Chanel

Each lipstick from the Rouge Allure Velvet Le Lion de Chanel collection features a beautiful lion motif – the symbol of Gabrielle Chanel’s Leo zodiac and one of her lucky charms. Our go-to shade, #227 – Beige Rugissant, is not only really easy to match but it’s also one of the luxury house’s key colours.

HK$315 each available at Chanel beauty

Gucci Rouge À Lèvres Satin

Inspired by vintage makeup tubes, Gucci’s Rouge à Lèvres satin collection features a trio of long-lasting lipsticks in prosperous red hues: 513 Emmy Red, 25 Goldie Red and 505 Janet Rust. Each creamy shade – we love them all – is perfumed with soft notes of violet.

HK$305 each available at Gucci beauty counters

Tom Ford Beauty

Tom Ford Beauty’s Most Wanted Lips collection comes in a range of seductive shades and textures. For nights out, we’ll opt for Impassioned, a richly-coloured lipstick in claret with brown undertones. The metallic series are infused with nourishing ingredients such as soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil.

Ranges from HK$300 – HK$420 available at Tom Ford beauty and counters

Charlotte Tilbury

For something a little lighter, here’s Charlotte Tilbury’s Hyaluronic Happikiss line, which perfectly combines three effects into one product – the colour intensity of a lipstick, the hydration of a lip balm and the shine of a lip gloss. For everyday wear, we’ll choose Crystal Happikiss, a pretty berry pink shade.

Bobbi Brown

Perfect for off-duty days, Bobbi Brown’s Extra Lip Tint contains avocado and jojoba oils to smooth and soften the lips. The lightly-coloured balm can be worn on its own or over your favourite lipstick, for an even glossier finish.
