I love wearing lipstick, but I hate the way some of them dry my lips out. Nothing is worse than gorgeous, rich color that is ruined by flaky, peeling lips.
Enter LAUREN+VANESSA lipstick, my most recent beauty discovery and obsession. Not only are the colors amazing, but the application and staying power are a dream. The secret ingredients? Avocado and jojoba oils. According to the brand’s founders, “Avocado oil is enriched with vitamins A, C and E. This natural oil has the highest emollience in skin penetration so you really reap all the benefits.” So not only do you get a lipstick that is highly-pigmented, but it goes on velvety smooth and actually keeps your lips moisturized for hours on end.
My favorite shade of the moment is Wicked, which is a deep, dark vampy redish-purple, but with over 15 shades you’ll have no problem finding a color you love.
PS: They also make lip gloss!
