Pssst, International Kissing Day is here, time to start planning that hot date with your partner. Whether it be going out for a romantic picnic or a retro drive-in movie under the stars, CR has your beauty look covered. Officially cruising in post-pandemic era, it’s time to put away the face masks and make a statement with this season’s most covetable lip looks. For International Kissing Day, refer to this expertly curated edit, all occasions considered.
Prep for that Million Dollar Pout
Applying lipstick without properly prepping is a big no-no. Homemade sugar scrubs are fast fixes, but why not step up your pamper routine with these lip care products that are fit for a Queen?
Dior Beauty introduces the new Dior Prestige sugar face and lip exfoliator that is enriched with Rose de Granville micro-nutrients. When massaged onto the lips, the exfoliant’s creamy texture transforms into a nourishing mask that coats the skin with rich, comforting oils, waxes and butters. Lips will be left feeling plumped, smoothed and softened ready for lipstick application.
Known for its luxurious and high performance products, Swiss beauty brand Valmont is a beauty cult favorite. Valmont’s Prime Lip Repair is a lip product like no other. The slim pump bottle is a beautiful addition to any vanity. The emulsion itself fights against external aggressions–like weather and signs of aging–by nourishing and hydrating the lips. When applied under lipstick, the emulsion even helps lipstick last longer – double bonus.
After you have thoroughly exfoliated and nourished your lips, the next step is to give them the final volumizing lift. We love La Mer’s Lip Volumizer for this. Infused with Miracle Broth™, this serum-strength treatment protects and plumps with hydration, for lips that look immediately fuller, healthier and more defined. Over time, there will be a visible difference in the reduction of lip lines and the overall appearance of your lips. All it requires is a swipe of this gorgeous treatment gloss.
Leave a Mark!
Red lipstick is instant glamour in a bullet. Red is iconic. It’s bold. It’s confident. Entertainment starlets and powerhouses from Marilyn Monroe to Marilyn Manson swear by wearing red lipstick. Indeed, the right shade of red can turn a boring look into a megawatt one.
The faint of heart tend to steer clear from wearing red lipstick on dates for fear of smearing it. But why not smear it on your lover’s face? Make a mark. Trust us, it lasts longer.
When we talk about an iconic red, the timeless Dior crimson red in #999 immediately comes to mind. Now, it is available to purchase in not one but four luxurious finishes: satin, matte, metallic and velvet. We especially love the new velvet formula. It features natural-origin floral lip caring ingredients like red peony and pomegranate flower extracts for 16 hour comfort. More modern and luxurious than ever, the new Rouge Dior lipstick is adorned with a signature band featuring the CD initials, a nod to Dior’s runway looks.
It can’t possibly get more glam than a red lipstick. Killian Paris’s first makeup collection, Le Rouge Parfum, includes a wardrobe of six iconic red lipsticks, all available in Matte and Satin finishes and deliciously scented by the label. Each lipstick from the range is embellished with an enticing blend of gourmand and floral notes, a specially-created harmony of marshmallow and orange blossom. That’s right, now your lips can smell as delectable as you. CR‘s pick from the range is #05 Dangerous Rouge, a vibrant cranberry red.
Pics or it Didn’t Happen
Catapult your relationship this International Kissing Day to full digital royalty status! Give your followers a glimpse of intimate make-out moments à la @carolinevreeland style.
Though keep in mind, a carefully timed and directed PDA moment might require more than one take. Be prepared to smooch all night with your lead actor until you get the best shot for the gram! CR advises dressing your lips in a lipstick that can withstand the task! Mattes, inks are best. Steer clear from anything that will wear off easily.
Hot off the press, star of the Valentino beauty range, the Rosso Valentino refillable lipstick is at the top of our wishlist.
Available in 50 (!) vibrant shades, the refillable lipstick is designed to flatter all skin tones in two luxurious finishes: a rich, creamy satin and a non-drying, soft matte. We suggest the soft matte formulation for the occasion. The matte lipstick finish is highly pigmented, long-lasting, and formulated with moisturizing oils to provide an ultra-comfortable, non-drying feel.
The signature V-shaped lipstick bullet is the perfect tool to define your lips with precision and control. The lipstick casing echos the designs of the bullet, subtle and elegant, a jewel in its own right.
By Terry is one of those must-have niche cosmetics brands. Hailing from Paris, By Terry was founded by Terry de Gunzburg with the ethos of a creating a bespoke ‘couture’ beauty line offering made to measure cosmetics.
The label’s star product is its matte expert lipstick. Inspired by the ever-alluring Parisian style, this high-pigment matte liquid lipstick creates a long lasting glamorous “Haute Couleur” statement look. Enriched with premium ingredients, its formula applies flawlessly and ensures long-lasting comfortable wear. Kiss away, without worry!
We love the shade #16 Midnight Instinct. Somehow punk and elegant at the same time, the deep wine hue is perfect for the modern femme fatale.
All eyes on you
There are few looks as striking or as modern as a bare face, bold lip combo. The ultimate lazy-yet-sophisticated makeup hack is the go-to look that doesn’t much time to complete and is sure to wow.
“Lipstick is the most valuable weapon in a woman’s make-up kit. It has the power to transform the appearance and mood of the person wearing it, and, at the same time, arouse the admiration in everybody else,” Monica Bellucci once said.
In its silver-gold, bi-color metal curvilinear casing, the form of Byredo’s lipstick echoes the form of bamboo. The organic shape and distinct weight also play on the precious quality of cosmetics casings past, today brought into the future. Within, a precision slim-line stick is protected by a satisfying magnetic click.
Color rich with an exceptional formulation that is both comfortable and impeccable. Byredo’s lipstick has sumptuous levels of color saturation and does not dry the lips.
Our favorite from the range is #140 Tokio Rose. A warm vivid pink. Tokio Rose has a matte finish to absorb light and intensify the color.
For a great gifting option, Chanel’s Rouge Allure Laque ultrawear shine liquid lip color set is absolutely stunning. Three shades of ultra-intense, ultra-long wearing satin shine liquid lipsticks are included. The shades range from a pretty pink (64 Exigence) to a deep crimson (80 Timeless), and a bright rouge (73 Invincible). Three fabulous, glossy statement looks.
Our final pick for this International Kissing Day’s edit is the crème de la crème of lipsticks. Behold Chantecaille’s dazzling and luminous Rose Quartz Lip Cristal. This pearl-infused formula amplifies lips with blasts of sparkling color and dimension. Giving them a spectacular shimmer finish. The creamy, smooth formula offers silky, buildable color with zero irritation and feels incredibly comfortable on the lips. The lipstick comes in a limited-edition gold-tone case.
We can’t keep changing partners, but we can definitely change our lipsticks, have fun this International Kissing Day.END
