Luscious, plump lips are not only a sign of youth and good health, but also means that your bold new lipstick applies smoothly and evenly. However, changes in the temperature and harmful UV rays can cause flakeyness and discomfort that has the ability to ruin your look. No need to kiss goodbye to your favourite lipstick to keep your pout plump and hydrated; we have picked out the best moisturising lipsticks that will protect and nourish whilst defining and brightening your lips so that you don't have to chose between moisture and makeup anymore!
