When summer rolls around, our beauty motto becomes incredibly simple: Easy-peasy pretty. Really, who has time on a hot, sticky day for a lipstick that melts, feels heavy, or fades within the hour? Not us. Hence, our new obsession with Maybelline's Color Sensational Color Whisper lipsticks. The formula is lightweight, yet richly pigmented, and the intensity falls somewhere between a stain and a traditional lipstick. Translation: You get all the highlights (bright color, lightweight texture) without the heaviness, which makes it the ideal summer beauty pick-me-up. Even better? You can choose from 20 shades (our go-to is Cherry On Top), so this could be the one lippie you wear all summer long. (You can thank us in September.)
Maybelline Color Sensational Color Whisper Lip Color, $7.49, available at Maybelline.
