L'Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lipcolour Compact

New from L'Oreal, this lipcolour contains traits of both lipstick and gloss to provide 16 hours of coverage. It's an innovative product, with a moisturizing complex of marine collagen and vitamin E that conditions lips and prevents mid-lip wear-out. After you put on the base coat, the color is applied with a unique, slanted applicator. Both are kept in a mirrored compact. Comes in 24 shades, ranging from Merlot to Azalea. $11.99 (prices may vary)

Covergirl Outlast Lipstain

This water-based lip product looks a little more like a mini magic marker than lipstick. But don't be swayed, it gives you lasting color with a lightweight feel. It won't carry the weight or the feel of traditional lipstick, but will give you a blush of color. It also has an applicator that looks similar to a pen, so you won't see any twisting tubes here! Conditioners soften and smooth tips throughout the day.

Apply just one coat of gloss for a subtle look, or for a pop of color, apply twice. The lipstain will dry to a matte finish, so if it's shine you seek, consider applying a top layer of gloss. $8.29 (prices may vary)
