STICK IT!

4 Feb

February is a big mouth month around Los Angeles.

Flashing smiles for cameras on Awards Show red carpets, puckering up on Valentine’s Day, or best case scenario – giving an acceptance speech… Our mouths tend to be a big focus this time of year.

With everything to stay on top of in our daily lives, most of us don’t spend time worrying about having camera-ready lips. So what do women say in the City of Angels? We say, “STICK IT!”

Instead of grabbing our favorite go-to gloss for long evenings when our puckers need to last, Angelenos are relying on chunky color sticks. Formulas range from totally matte to satiny sheens—All are long-wearing, draw seamlessly onto lips, and are evening clutch-friendly.

OUR TOP 3 PICKS:

NARS Velvet Lip Pencils

NARS

Available in matte or gloss formulas, NARS Velvet Lip Pencils are a godsend, day or night. Some have shimmer, others give a natural wash of color. All have vitamin E, hyaluronic spheres, and a smooth buttery texture.

Suggested shade: Cythère, a soft metallic rose beige

BITE High Pigment Matte Lip Pencil

BITE

The BITE formula delivers a modern matte look. Gorgeous with a shimmering or smoky eye. Plus it’s packed with resveratrol for long-term anti-aging benefits. And the pencils are made exclusively with nurturing food-grade ingredients, said to be healthy enough to eat.

Suggested shade: Chablis, a soft coral rose

TARTE LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint in Energy

TARTE

Love this limited-edition tint! A shade of pink that’s natural, sheer, and different on every woman. The formula works with skin’s natural pH, giving lips a vitamin-rich, plumped, personalized pink. Plus, it’s got a natural minty taste – so kiss with confidence!

ALL OF THE ABOVE ARE AVAILABLE AT YOUR LOCAL SEPHORA AND SEPHORA.COM.

    She’s right, these are such a surprise. I always expect them to be dry and chalky, but they never are. Plus there’s something that taps into your inner kid getting to paint your lips with a crayon. So fun. Clinique makes a great line too.
