Everyone knows, lipstick is a girl's best friend. A sweep of deep red or a nude lip can finish off a look perfectly, and what better time to find a new lipstick than in the run up to New Years Eve!? Get inspired by our guide to the best lipsticks, balms and glosses.

Velvet Teddy by MAC

In the year when everyone wanted to look like Kylie Jenner, nude lips were all the rage. For the perfect Kylie inspired lip, check out Velvet Teddy by MAC, a creamy lipstick with a matte finish. If lip fillers aren’t your thing (and let’s face it, unless you live in Hollywood they probably aren’t), amplify your lips with Whirl lip liner, also from MAC. £15.50 from

Beet It by Limecrime

A deep red lip is the perfect accompaniment to a little black dress to create a super sultry, sexy look. Continuing with the matte theme, we love Beet It by Lime Crime from the Velvetine range. The highly pigmented liquid turns a deliciously velvet matte texture as it dries for a long-lasting, smudge proof finish. For the more adventurous, why not check out the other Velvetines, such as Utopia, a bright fuchsia colour, or the light orange shade, Squash. £13.44 from

Orgasm Lipgloss by Nars

Yes, it’s called Orgasm. And yes, it’s super sexy. This peachy pink lip gloss is seriously shimmery and will make your lips gleam on a night out. Wear with other products from the Orgasm collection, such as The Multiple Orgasm multi-purpose stick that can be worn on eyes, lips or cheeks for a warm pink hue. £19 from

Rouge Odyssee by Lancome


No girl should ever be without a red lipstick. For a signature lip colour, it's worth splashing out, such as on this creamy, hydrating lipstick from Lancome. We love the colour Rouge Odyssee, a beautiful deep feminine red. The SPF 12 helps keep your lips supple and hydrated throughout the day, removing the need for lip balm and keeping your lips looking luxurious. £23.50 from

Lip Ombre in Astound from Topshop

It can get boring wearing just one colour of lipstick, so why not wear two!? These awesome paint pots from Topshop provide two highly pigmented pans of colour, one darker to use as a base colour and one lighter to create an ombre effect. Apply the darker colour to the lips with your fingertips, and then apply the lighter shade to the center of the lips and smudge outwards for the illusion of fuller lips. We love ‘Astound’, a combination of two bright, popping pinks. £8 from
