All the best new launches to soothe, condition, paint, shine, gloss, colour and give some love to your lips...

Shea butter and sea buckthorn are rich in fatty acids, Sculpted by Aimee’s Lip Treat contains both. It works as a cosseting balm by day and if you double up your layers overnight, this dense salve can be used as a treatment mask.


Lip De-Luscious (SPF 20) from Australia’s beloved Mecca Cosmetics had just launched in the UK and is destined to become a year-round must-have, not least because it is buttery smooth, rather than annoyingly sticky. The nourishing, botanical formula includes hyaluronic spheres to plump and will imbue your lips with a faint pink wash of colour.


A refillable metal case houses this hybrid balm/colour stick from the wonderful Annabelle Minerals. If they’re not on your radar, they should be if you prefer natural formulations in your makeup. There are five shades to choose from, including Brown Fig (pictured here); a universal nude.


Code8’s website describes this handy stick as a ‘no make-up make-up essential’ and we can only agree. Ridiculously straightforward to apply, it soothes, treats and softens, and the pH-reactive tint produces a uniquely personalised shade for your lips (and cheeks).


Stuffed with 3D effect glowing pigments in five perfect satin K.I.S.S.I.N.G pinks and five more dramatic Matte Revolution reds, Charlotte Tilbury’s latest Hollywood Beauty Icon lipsticks have dropped just in time for the official month of love. Smooth, hydrating, plumping perfection.


Pssst – want to cheat your way to an oversized pout? Overline your lips. Charlotte Tilbury’s legendary Lip Cheat is now available in five more shades including Icon Baby, a warm rose. To avoid the dreaded clown lip, start at the top centre or cupids bow and work down the sides a little without reaching into the corners. Stick to the natural line on the bottom.

National Smile Month starts on 13 May and it’s ironic, but usually a trip to the dentist isn’t too much to smile about. I guess it depends on the dentist, though. I went down to London’s Wimpole Street to meet Dr Tom Crawford Clarke of Luceo Dental to find out more about teeth whitening.
