Autograph Ultra Shine Twist-Up Lip Colour

Since Clinique Chubby Sticks introduced us to the carefree joys of lipcolour that you can virtually apply in the dark, we’ve been converts to lip crayons. And we're loving these:  from M&S’s Autograph make-up (well worth checking up now they’ve souped-up their beauty offering), these twist-up pencils require no sharpening, slicking on a sheer, shiny veil of colour.

They’re comfy as a balm, with a texture mid-way between a lipstick and a gloss – and if you’re a little scared of lip colour they’re a brilliant way to experiment with a different shade, without fear of overdoing things.

Eight alluring shades.  But Plum Shine, Damson Shine, and Nude Shine are the ones which have put the biggest smile on our lips.
