Burberry Beauty Lip Mist available at Faces, Ocean Terminal (HK$245)

Claim: lightweight with a creamy texture, its gelled structure gives effortless control and glide. High shine oils give a sheer and dewy effect while the shine filming polymers give a natural look. Colours range from 'trench' tones to dark berry reds.

Giorgio Armani Gloss d'Armani (HK$250)

Claim: gently adorns the lips and lasts a long time. The velvet applicator is precise and flawlessly shapes the lips in a single application. The mirror and silicon oils make it shiny and silky smooth. Available in 18 colours.

Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy (H$220)

Claim: a deeply hydrating veil of colour which is softly radiant, sheer and silky. Hyaluronic acid smoothes, providing intense hydration for up to eight hours. Mineral pigments reinforce shine and emollients instantly soften, comfort and smooth lips for up to four weeks after application. The antioxidant virtues of pomegranate, rosemary and gamma oryzanol slow ageing. Available in fruity shades.

Verdict: All three products moisturise and hydrate the lips. The Burberry Beauty Lip Mist gives a glossy and smooth feel. Giorgio Armani Gloss d'Armani's sponge tip applicator makes it very easy to apply and shape the lips. It gives a sheer shine but it is a little sticky. Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy is the stand-out with its super non-sticky application. It lasts a long time and gives a silky and shiny texture, and its candy smell is very alluring.
