Don't let the gloss-like packaging fool you: Lise Watier Baiser Velours ($27 at London Drugs) is an ultra creamy lipstick that delivers true colour in one swipe and dries to a matte finish, There are 9 bright shades available, all named after different types of kisses. I'm not usually a fan of lipsticks with gloss-like packaging; the classic twist-up bullet seems so much more elegant. But in the case of Baiser Velours it makes sense: The colour is so bright and noticeable once it sets, you want that paddle-shaped sponge applicator for a precise application. During my test run yesterday, I used the pointy end to line my lips, and the flat side to fill them in.
