What: It Cosmetics My Naughty Mouth Kit, $69
Why: I’m no Angelina Jolie. I don’t have six kids, Brad Pitt, or pillowy lips. So I wasn’t optimistic that this step-by-step kit of lip products would change my pout. It comes with a palette of nine lipstick shades, a dual lip pencil for highlighting and shading, two shimmery glosses, a handy dual brush, and two blue-based lip balms that make smiles look whiter.
When I opened the box, my first thought was that it seemed like a lot of effort without much promise of payoff. But thanks to the easy-to-follow diagrams of how to apply every product, my lips do look fuller. I’m still not Angelina, but I’m a little closer… and a little later for work.
