This rich, creamy lipstick is a vibrant orange-red and sets into a soft matte finish. You’ll achieve stunning results thanks to its full-coverage formula. What we love most about this perfect red is its light texture that feels weightless on the lips. Hyaluronic acid and Pro-Xylane work to condition the skin and keep lips soft and moisturised, making this Lancome lipstick one of the most comfortable and long-wearing options.

If you’re after a vibrant classic red but aren’t sure what to choose, this is the lipstick for you. Velvet Ribbon is a universal, classic neutral/blue-red that makes teeth appear whiter. Its highly pigmented with a creamy formulation, matte with a slight sheen – but not a ‘flat’ matte. Best of all, the colour is long-wearing and non-drying on the lips. According to Eldridge, this is the one classic pillar box red that every woman needs, and we’d agree.
