Sisley Phyto-Lip Twist XXL Pencil

Whip this out at a table and it'll get you noticed! (And who cares what Miss Manners thinks!) Sisley definitely get our prize for the sexiest-looking lip crayon to date, with its zebra livery - but it's also one of the most comfortable: glide-on glossy, it's instant glamour in a chubby pencil which twists up, so it never needs sharpening and you never risk scratching lips with the wooden pencilly bit.

Three new perfect-for-summer shades have joined the line-up: 7 Coral (a great, wearable pink grapefruit sort of shade - very Miami Beach!), 8 Candy (retro pink, but as it's sheer, flattering to everyone) and 9 Chestnut, which is the shade to go for if you're a neutral-lover. (This, too, is a suits-all-skintones shade.)

We'll certainly be twisting again, like we did last summer...
