Mary Berry’s floral bombers might once have been the biggest pop of colour on the Great British Bake Off, but this year there’s a new contender: Candice and her perfectly lined lips.

Since Week One, 31-year-old PE teacher Candice has brought killer lip game to the show, proving she can work everything from a deep plum to a pillarbox red. If Star Baker was awarded solely on vibrancy of lippie, Candice would win it every damn week.

Here’s your rundown of every shade our fave strong-lipped baker has worked on GBBO over the last six weeks – plus a few hints on where to buy the colours for yourself.

Week One

Candice served up a Raspberry Drizzle Bundt for Cake Week, but went one better with her lippie, rocking a deep plum.

Want to try it out yourself? Our pick is Kevyn Aucoin The Expert Lipcolour in Poisonberry, €35.


Week Two


For Biscuit Week, Candice went with a vibrant magenta shade. Oh, and she took home Star Baker for her gingerbread pub. NBD.

For a copycat look, we recommend Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips in Electric Poppy, €30.


Week Three

Her Dampfnudel may have fallen flat in the technical challenge of Bread Week, but Candice kept to her “red for bread” promise, going all out with a cherry pout.

DIY her lippie with NARS Sheer Lipstick in Manhunt, €26.


Week Four

For Batter Week, Candice opted for magenta again, and her expressions were pure TV gold. WORK THAT POUT.


Week Five

It was back to the tried-and-tested plum in Week Five for three pastry challenges, and another Star Baker nod for Candice and her Sausage, Black Pudding and Apple Rounds. Win!


Week Six

A rare slip-up here, when Candice toned down her lips and went with a nude shade that just *didn’t* work for her.

If you reckon you’d have better luck, try Lipstick Queen Sinner Lipstick in Bare Nude, €27.
