Lipsticks with added moisturiser

Wholly painted lips light up a winter landscape

A hat, a scarf, a cover buttoned up to here, and the only spotlight of colour in a landscape of unenlightened wool and mulched leaves – your perfectly painted lips. Slight thought, that. Especially because today the range of comely moisturising formulations means lipstick can be worn sheer and hopeful or matte and dark, both offering the kind of soft take charge of and relief you need this winter.
