When it comes to enhancing our lips, we have so many products to consider. There are lipsticks, liners, glosses, stains, balms and plumpers. My, oh my, what is a girl to do? Well I am over them all! My latest obsession is all about a stick that can multitask in different combinations. I’m listing my top picks and what each one does to make life easier, while keeping my lips luscious.
1. Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil ($24, Narscosmetics.com)
This product is my total fave, and I swear by its moist but long-wearing color. It has a subtle shine; not too glossy, yet the color doesn’t budge through a power dinner.
2. Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($16, Sephora.com)
Next on my hit list is this buttery smooth balm, which leaves a hint of shine and lovely light color.
3. Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color ($19, Sephora.com)
This color is creamy and sparkly and smoothes around lips like a liner, and then glides on to fill in the lips with rich shades of love.
4. Buxom Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick ($18, Sephora.com)
This is a great 3-in-1 product that acts like a liner, a lipstick and plumps up your pout at the same time.
5. Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Stain ($24, Sephora.com)
It might be gloss-free, but the color stays true, is non-drying and the peppermint flavor is refreshing in the heat of the summer.
So take it easy, and go for a stick that will wind up saving you time and money.
