Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour
We try to limit our makeup bags to just the essentials when we travel — and this lipstick is definitely one of those. It’s a matte formula, however it’s much creamier and more moisturizing than you’d expect, thanks to hydrating mango butter and hyaluronic acid. Trust us: After a long flight or hours in the car, a swipe of bold lip color can do wonders.
