Lip toppers are products that alter the finish of your lipstick, so whether it’s a holographic lip or a metallic one, it’s an easy, no-fuss, instant way to achieve the look you want. Just a single swipe of these lip gloss-esque wonders will transform any lipstick into something that’s the perfect amount of extra.

You’ll be spoilt for choice if you’re looking for a lip topper, but here’s what our readers had to say about this office favourite: BECCA’s Liquid Crystal Glow Gloss in Opal x Jade, a glossy holographic golden opal pearl lip topper with a super pretty teal sapphire shift that’s still translucent enough to let your original lipstick shade shine through.
“I’ve always struggled to find the perfect lip colour and when I do, I tend to hold on to it. Having this lip topper changes the finish without altering the lip hue and I love it!” – Jessica Lee, Marketing Executive, 29
“While many have jumped on the matte lipstick bandwagon, I’ve stuck to hi-shine products that keep my lips looking hydrated and moisturised. I decided to give this a try and the finish is perfect! It provides a slight shimmer on the lips, which is perfect for an everyday look.” – Aisha Zakaria, Lawyer, 25
So there you have it! Lip toppers are the easiest way to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to your makeup look. But our favourite way to use them? Go all out galactic lips, all the way.
