Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar In Interlace

$11

Amazon

Lip Lacquer

Available in every hue you can dream of (we're talking purples, teals, silvers and even yellows) this "tar" deserves a medal for the most highly-pigmented lip color of all time. It has the consistency of a gloss (not the sticky kind) but delivers the best opaque finish we've ever seen.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil In Damned

Lip Pencil

Bright or dark colors are almost always the shades that give you the most hours of wear because of the rich pigments. This crayon-like lip pencil applies a creamy, matte color that doesn't dry or fade.

La Laque Fever In Coral Nectar

Lancome

Lip Gloss

The silicone in this gloss acts as a primer and a top coat to seal your color for hours and hours. Gone are the days of lip gloss disappearing after 1 sip of your morning coffee.

YSL Glossy Stain In Rouge Vintage

Saks Fifth Avenue

Lip Stain

This product takes the cake for the most multitalented lip stain ever. It goes on like a shiny gloss and stains your lips with color that won't fade. It just doesn't get any sweeter than that!

‘Pro Longwear’ Lip Creme In Soft Sell

Lipstick

Lightweight lipsticks are the best for all-day wear because they sink into your lips—not your teeth—and don't get cakey. When applying, blot between layers to build up the pigment and staying power.
