We love our lippie here at QVC, and it’s easy to see why: we stock so many iconic brands and formulas! From sheer tints to bold liquid lipstick, there’s something for everyone – and in a great range of shades to suit your skin tone and personal style too.
Take a look at some of the products our digital team are loving at the moment:
Sam, Digital Copywriter for Fashion:
No matter how late I’m running in the morning, I always make sure I throw one of my favourite lipsticks in my handbag before I run out of the door, and the majority of the time it’s Tarte’s Tarteist Matte Lip Paint that I go for. Mauve is my go-to for every day, but if I want something a little bit brighter, I just love Pinky Coral.
The pigment is amazing, meaning I only have to quickly apply one swipe and I have a bold lip look that I know will stay on whether I’m eating, drinking or running for the bus! Applying it in the morning and still having colour there of an evening saves me time during the day as it cuts out the need for reapplication. Unlike some matte formulas I’ve tried, Tarteist Matte Lip Paint is lightweight and soft, and doesn’t leave my lips feeling dry or uncomfortable. Definitely my lipstick hero!
Emily, Digital Copywriter for Jewellery:
I love Bobbi Brown’s Art Sticks because they’re like a lipstick and liner in one – they give me a really precise application and impressive pigmentation that doesn’t move throughout the day. I wear lipstick to feel more confident and I feel like no make-up look is complete without it! These nude shades (Bare and Rose Brown) are also great as blushers as they’re easily buildable.
Josie, Digital Editor for Tili:
Lipstick and I have a non-existent relationship, mainly because I used to take Roaccutane for acne, which can really dry out your skin. Since my mid-teens my lips have been super-dry, and any lipstick I put on will cling and look awful – not what you want. So lip balm (plus a good sugar scrub) is my best friend, and I’ve been using this Decleor lip balm for a few weeks now. It has shea butter and macadamia oil, and none of the drying ingredients that are common in a lot of lip products! It makes my lips feel soft and hydrated, and they look a lot smoother when I use it. Who knows, maybe I’ll be able to try an actual lipstick again soon!
Jess, Digital Copywriter for Beauty:
I own approximately 5,000 nude-pink lipsticks, but one I always come back to is the luxe Creamy Matte Lipstick formula in the shade Blush Nude from Nude by Nature. It has a gorgeous matte texture and glides on like a dream, and instantly makes me feel more polished and put together. It’s really versatile too, as you can build up coverage or blot it lightly on top of a gloss for a soft-focus finish. There are some gorgeous bright shades in the range, like Aubergine and Red Blossom, which I like to wear on a night out or for a special occasion. My perfect matte (but never flat) lippy.
Ayesha, Lead Copywriter:
If there’s one make-up item I couldn’t live without, it would be lipstick, as I think it automatically lifts any look and makes me feel brighter and more cheerful. I particularly love these IT Cosmetics ones because they feel as good as they look. Je Ne Sas Quoi has a very soothing and soft texture and kind of adapts to your natural lip colour, but also enhances it slightly. It’s like wearing a luxurious balm and I always keep a couple around – one for my handbag, and one at work, just because I love constantly applying it. Because it is almost completely sheer, I can apply it on-the-go without a mirror like I would a balm or chapstick but still feel like I’m wearing some colour!
Shiv, Marketing Copywriter:
Lipstick is a pretty important part of my make-up look, as I don’t really wear eye make-up day-to-day, so for me it’s all about the lips. I usually go for bolder shades to complement my darker skin tone and I like matte lipsticks, but they can be drying. So I love using Gale Hayman’s Lip Lift. It’s great at moisturising my lips and helping to reduce those fine lines, plus it looks so much nicer in my make-up bag than a regular lip balm!
