When it comes to make-up, every woman sets her own budget. For some it's the bare minimum, for others a necessary luxury they're willing to splash their cash on. Lipstick is a product where many would argue you get what you pay for. With designer brands charging huge amounts for theirs, we take a look at the market's most luxurious lipsticks.
Dolce & Gabbana
D&G is a favourite for both beauty and fashion among celebs, recently teaming up with Sophia Loren on a lipstick. The brand currently offers five lipsticks, a liner and two glosses. It promises superior performance thanks to a formula that moisturises lips and a rounded shape that makes for easy application. D&G lipsticks retail for around 28 Euros.
Even just hearing the word Chanel conjures up visions of luxury and many women love bringing a touch of designer class to their make-up bags with a Chanel lipstick. The brand currently boasts four versions: Rouge Coco, Rouge Coco Shine, Rouge Allure and Rouge Allure Velvet. The website offers application tutorials and product suggestions for matching your lipstick to the rest of your make-up - clever! A Chanel lipstick will set you back roughly 35 Euros.
Luxury beauty brand Estèe Lauder is a favourite of supermodel Kendall Jenner's (she's even leant her name to one of their lippies), so it's no wonder more and more women are splashing out on the company's luxe lipsticks. Multifaceted pigments promise to help sculpt the lips, with high-intensity colour, hydration and six hours of wear also on the list of pros. Estèe Lauder lipsticks retail for around 35 Euros.
With a selection of six lipsticks, a lipliner and four lip pencils, there's plenty for lovers of luxury lip products to choose from at NARS. The lightweight formula of its sheer lipstick helps it glide on easily, while conditioners nourish and protect your pout. You can get yours for around 28 Euros.
Iconic British brand Burberry isn't just known for its trench coats - it's also big on its luxury lipsticks. The Burberry Kisses product comes in 28 vibrant shades and promises six hours of "continuous hydration" for a price of about 35 Euros. There's also the Lip Mist for a sheerer finish at around 32 Euros and the Lip Velvet, a matte product, at around 36.50 Euros.
