A shape, that we see celebs with the likes of Charlotte Crosby and the Kardashian / Jenner clan, in particular Kylie take on. Here I’ve applied Liquid Velvet lip colour in ‘
Chatterbox’ by Ciate, £17 with a line that instead of lining in an upturned arch where half the time I look like I’m part of the cast from Ab Fab (on the outer edges of the top lip) I work from the bottom edges of the top lip creating a very slight inward facing arch or downward arch giving as we see this pout! I may not be the best photographer to capture how it looked non pouty, but my lips certainly look much fuller! Try it yourself and try out these new wonderful products, they shouldn’t be missed!
So refresh your lipstick wardrobe today and ramp up the colour with Ciate’s Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slick. Available in 8 new colours, this is a high coverage, long wearing and high performance pigment lip colour.

Perfect for up to 6 hours continuous wear, these are ultra-moisturising with organic marsh samphire extracts and mango oil giving softer supple lips. With the perfect scent of berries making these sheer colours even more irresistible.
Our tester thought… ‘Loved the colour (Coral) but it (very very sheer) felt good on, very light and smelt fab. Only lasted a few hours so on a night out you would have to reapply a few times’ – I’d suggest wearing with Clarins Lip perfector for that longer lasting wear!
