Most are lightweight and pack on the pigment and they’re ideal for replicating that blurred lip look from the runways. And there’s no need to worry about the color smudging or transferring while you’re at work or out on a date. Plus, you can pick from matte, metallic and shimmery finishes. There are even some versions that can also be used on your cheeks and lids for monochromatic makeup vibes.
