Bold lipsticks for every occasion
Whether you have an evening soirée or Sunday brunch date, we have the right shade for you

Paired with a simple shift dress or an after-hours LBD, loud lipstick is always appropriate. A quick slick adds instant glamour, and if you find the right shade, any skin tone can pull it off. Here, we reveal the top picks for adding a pop of colour to your pout—for all occasions.
Best for 9-to-5
‘For extra staying power, line and fill lips with a pencil before applying lipstick – the base helps colour last,’ says makeup guru Napoleon Perdis.
Best for weekend wear
“Apply a lip conditioner before bed every night! Your body repairs while you sleep, so it’s a good time to treat lips,” Perdis says.
Best for a long lunch
Lip lacquers are great for bold colour that’s easy to apply. Some can be sticky but this one goes on smoothly and doesn’t feel heavy.
Best for lazy Sundays
Gloss is great for a subtle tint and can make lips look bigger too. Apply a bright shade first, then dab a lighter gloss in the centre of your lips to make them appear ‘poutier’.
