Forever on the quest for the perfect lipstick, this comes pretty close.

I'm not really a fan of the matte and favour a moisturising formula but generally this means they don't survive beyond the morning coffee.

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Illuminating Shine feels like a lip balm, thanks to the addition of super anti-ager Hyaluaronic Acid but there is no loss of coverage.

It comes in ten shades and is beautifully packaged in a slender gold bullet that will have you dreaming of a return to glamorous nights out.

Glasgow Times:

The brand has also launched a new online feature which allows you to upload a photo and try every shade virtually.

My favourite is Dreamlike, a gorgeous mood-boosting coral that would suit most complexions.
