Be it sultry red, vampy merlot or hot pink, a high-pigment lipstick can perk up your day. Our Style & Living editors talk through their feel-good favourites

1. “I feel more dynamic when I wear Rosie For Autograph Lipstick in Super Model Kiss, £14. I go from mouse to minx in one sweep.” Sam Dean, acting beauty editor

2. “My go-to has always been Autograph Colour Shine Lip Lacquer in Plum Shine, £10. It’s not just a lipstick – it’s a state of mind.” Tamala Ayres, stylist

3. “Diego Dalla Palma Lipstick in Deep Pink, £16.50, always pulls me out of a rut. It’s also a fast fix to make teeth look whiter.” Colleen Last, senior sub editor

5. “My magic secret to looking good in selfies is Stila Stay All Day Matte Lipstick in Bisou, £16. Once you find a shade that complements you, it feels fab.” Sophie Hines, fashion editor

6. “A pop of Diego Dalla Palma Shiny Lipstick in Coral, £16, on clean skin looks so classic and grown up. It never dates.” Claire Askew, kids editor
