In your twenties your lips are at their fullest so you can wear sheer, shiny, bright lip colors.


Switch to lip stain and long-wearing formulas. They require minimal touch-ups and are a low-maintenance way to wear colors that pop.


Look for formulas that are sheet and creamy. They illuminate your face and moisturize lips without a sticky, tacky finish.


To rock a bold lip in your fifties, stick to nourishing formulas with anti-ageing benefits.


To look ultra-chic and confident, wear a stand-out color with a long-lasting and creamy formula.

How to make your lipstick last longer

  • Lippy holds on best to a smooth surface so prep your lips with an exfoliate and balm. Finish with a translucent powder for extra hold
  • Use a lip liner to lightly trace your pout, then diffuse edges with a cotton tip. This prevents color bleeding into fine lines around lips.
  • Use a lip brush to fill in your pout. Using a lip brush not only makes lips look hot, you’ll get more applications out of your lippy.
  • Personalize your pout. For lush Angelina Jolie lips slightly over-trace your Cupid’s bows with a lip liner and finish with a gloss. For a petite pout, cover with concealer and apply lipstick without liner.
