Our judges fawned over this gloss-like lip color, which is applied with a cushion-tipped pen. The color payoff of the 12 shades, however, is more like a lip lacquer meets stain. In fact, judge Nina Park told us she “became obsessed with these” and immediately started using them on her celeb clients alone or on top of opaque lipsticks.
We couldn’t believe this lipstick is only $8. Not only because the packaging is so cool (and different for all 40 shades), but because the formula is top notch: “The color pay off in the matte textures blew me away,” said Nina. And everyone raved about the hydration.
These are nine of the most wearable, blendable lip shades in one lightweight package, making it a no-brainer for your purse or when traveling. “I love to use this on the lips and the cheeks,” said judge Daniel Martin. Plus, Kahlana told us, “it feels like a balm.”
