Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour, $58 at Myer
The first formula to prove to us that lipsticks can in fact have long-term relationships? This sheeny-finish Chanel colour. Loaded with sweet almond oil and a nifty adherent ester, it keeps pigment in place all day long.
Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lip Colour, $52 at David Jones
Don’t let this bullet’s precious miniature status fool you – what’s not small is the amount of wear you’ll get out of the colour, thanks to its hydrating Brazilian murmur butter blend.
Burberry Kisses Lipstick, $56 at Sephora
Burberry Kisses is designed to make an impact - and that it does. With its satin finish and long-lasting formula, the lip colour has an intense pigment that creates coverage that stays put. Better yet, the hyaluronic acid-enriched formula adds a nourishing and hydrated finish.
Dior Rouge Dior Couture Finish Refillable Lipstick, $59 at Sephora
Dior lipstick formulas have always been durable, but this floral extract-enriched pick takes long-wearing to a new level. It looks (and lasts) like a lacquer, but feels like you’re wearing nothing but a comfy balm.
Guerlain KissKiss Shaping Cream Lip Colour Lipstick, $56 at Sephora

Givenchy Le Rouge Luminous Satin Matte Lipstick, $61 at Sephora
A matte so moisturising you might just forget you’re wearing it, the incredible level of one-swipe-only colour coverage it provides is surpassed only by the length of time it lasts on lips.
Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colour, $50 at Bobbi Brown
A fade and feather-proof beeswax-powered balm formula, this lush lippy leaves lips velvety soft, offering comfort and colour in one hit. The pigment is buildable, but whatever boldness level you choose, know that it’s here to stay.
