    A red lipstick works all year round. Whether it’s paired with a bronzy summer glow, or poised over a mug of mulled wine, the right shades can easily see you through anything. But hold up – we’ve got one hell of a showstopper shade.

    Much like its predecessors, MAC’s Riri Woo and Ruby Woo, the Stunna lip paint in Uncensored works on literally everyone. However, its velvety liquid formula means its not limited to bullet format – meaning you can play around with it as much as you like, with the results lasting for up to 12 hours without the need for a lip balm layered underneath.

    To prove just how versatile Uncensored is, we teamed up with the Fenty Beauty team to create two insane party looks that just so happen to be super easy to recreate….

    Glint of gold

    Take Uncensored and swipe it onto your lips, using the unique curvy precision wand to really get those edges sharp. Grab the Killawatt Highlighter in Trophy Wife (£26, Harvey Nichols), dip a tiny brush in some fixing spray, and swirl it into the pan before highlighting your Cupid’s bow. Next, move onto the eyes: draw a curved line just above your eyelid crease, tapering it out on either  side. Finish with a touch of mascara, bushy brows, and it’s complete.

    Go mono

    You know the drill – apply Uncensored as per usual. But here’s where we’re switching it up: pick up some of the lip paint on a slim angled liner brush, and stamp it along your lashline. Draw it out into a sharp wing, and nestle some black mascara at the lash roots for impact. Finally, pat a tiny touch of Uncensored onto your cheeks for a barely there flush.
