In honour of National Lipstick Day, the founders of Glitter Lips (£12.50) Beauty Boulevard has announced the results of its survey on how British women feel about their lips. Despite Angelina Jolie, Kylie Jenner and Rosie Huntington-Whitely having the nation’s favourite pouts, over 50% of the population are happy with their lip shape and over 50% of women wear lipstick to feel better about themselves. Paula Short, one of the co-founders of Beauty Boulevard, explains, “Lipstick plays an important part in many women’s lives and the evidence shows in our research”. In addition to Glitter Lips, this year Beauty Boulevard is expanding its range including Colour Stay Lip Liners, Lip Liquids and Lip Serums. Glitter Lips are available online and from stockists across the UK.
NARS has announced the launch of its new Precision Lip Liner Pencil (£18) and Powermatte Lip Pigment (£23).

Both available exclusively in Selfridges on 1st August and nationwide from 1st September.
