Summer is prime time to showcase your best self, from toned body, to sun-kissed skin, and — don’t forget — luscious lips. But in this heat, it might be hard for you to keep up with all the maintenance needed. Which is why we at Prestige are lifting the weight off your shoulders by putting together a list of lip products worth splurging on, to keep your pout plump and kissable for a midsummer night’s romance.
Most of the time, chapped lips are a turnoff, not to mention how uncomfortable it is when that dry flake peels away. But worry not — our first lip product Le Soin Noir Rituel Levres, a duo lip treatment, is here for rescue. First, scrub away the excess skin with white sugar grains, then nourish your pout with moisturising, nutrient-packed black balm, to prevent future cracking.

A little bit of sunshine will give you the right amount of vitamin D, but too much sun exposure can darken your skin and cause wrinkles – your lips are not an exception. A small amount of UV Protective Lip Treatment goes a long way. With SPF 30 PA+++, Hydro-Wrap Complex EX technology and argan oil, this balm from Clé de Peau is a must-have for this, and more summers to come.

The gold speaks for itself. Beyond the glitz and the glam of goddess-gold packaging, and 24K embedded gold flakes, Tom Ford’s Lip Blush in Soleil sits naturally on your lips, and will turn them a light pink hue. The balm will keep your pout hydrated through the summer.

Why settle for coral when you can have a bright, bold orange pout? The Vernis A Levres glossy lip stain never disappoints when it comes to pigmentation. When YSL introduced new three shades from the limited Summer Look 2019 collection, the flashy orange colour – Orange Trompe L’Oeil – instantly caught our attention.
