Lipstick Queen in Saint

5. Lipstick Queen in Saint, £22

Just one look at some bullet lipsticks and you can tell they will be dehydrating. However, that’s not the case with Lipstick Queen’s distinctly soft formula which bridges the gap between balm and matte lipstick. One sweep over the lips serves an injection of colour and hit of hydration that feels nourishing even after it’s been removed. Plus, with over 40 shades to choose from, this is a great solution for non-lipstick fans who find most formulas too heavy. Team Spell is in full agreement: this one is definitely a keeper.
