Some people throw on bracelets or earrings before they go out, but my go-to weapon is a swipe of pretty lipstick. I’ve run the gamut with different brands, but these four have made it to superstardom in my eyes: creamy and highly pigmented, long-lasting and they don’t smell funny (huge). Bonus points for the super pretty packaging, of course. I’m a sucker for something well designed.
