The DDB Spring Lipstick Collection

There’s no quicker way to update your look than with a brand-new lipstick. Pick one of the prettiest shades from the parade of punchy pinks, cunning corals, oh-so oranges, and vivacious violets.

Bright or bold, these fruit-punch shades can be worn by everyone, unless you’re considering the colour orange. This tricky shade works best if you have pearly white teeth. Anything less will emphasize the difference. In this case, go for coral--the happy medium between pink and orange.

Inspired by the tantalizing colours of tropical flowers, The DDB Spring Lipstick Collection is luscious, vivid, and infused with skin-nourishing ingredients. These long-lasting formulas offer amplified patent-leather shine. Each one makes a statement all on its own, or can be layered to create additional shades.


Hot pants pink. Few makeup items signal Spring! more than this fresh pop of colour.


Sensational citrus orange. Best friend of blue eyes and pearly white teeth. For a coral lip, mix with Pow. 


Vivacious violet. Brightens green eyes.


Creamy, sheer, and sparkling nude. A quieter alternative to the vivacious spring take, this shade can be applied over any bright tone to temper the intensity. Wear alone for a nude look anytime. 

Ask Dino- Vampire Lips to Luscious Lips

Dear Dino,
I have tried these long last, two-step lipsticks without much success. They are too drying and makes my lips look puckery and leathery. I like the idea of putting lipstick on once and forgetting about it for the day but all my girlfriends say I look like a vampire. Help!

Dear Buffy,
It sounds like you weren’t doing the second step of a two- step product and that’s why your lips look the way they do. It’s very important to use the balm/gloss after the colour sets to add moisture back to your lips and lend shine. The colour is delivered to the lips via alcohol, which evaporates after application leaving the colour to stain the lips. See the importance of the second step? But I have good news for you. Revlon has a new one-step long-lasting lipstick that is wonderful called “ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick”. You can use it lightly like a stain or layer it on for a very rich colour. It sets itself and keeps lips looking lovely. My favourite shades are: Perfect Peony, Miracle Mauve and Supreme Sienna. Let me know what you think.
