I love lipstick, but have always had a hard time wearing it outside of special events because of the constant need to reapply. It looks great at first, and then spreads and fades and needs constant attention.
A few months ago I was introduced to Laura Mercier's Paint Wash Lip Color. It applies like a gloss and dries like a matte lip color. Unlike most stains, it doesn't flake, peel or bleed outside of the lip. I applied the lip color and then went to meet friends and after 2 drinks and some food, the color was still on 2 hours later. I can't say enough about this product! My two favorites are the Red Brick and Fuchsia Mauve.
