Find Your Perfect Lipstick WITHOUT Trying It On

We're a little lipstick obsessed here at R29, so we know that scoring the perfect tube is on par with finding the right pair of jeans. But, despite how many shades and formulas we try, it's hard to tell which one's best. The colors we swatch on our hands don't always look the same on our pouts. (And, we get grossed out by some stores' testers.) So, how are we to find "The One" that fills an empty spot in our hearts makeup bags?
That's where Wayne Goss, YouTube star and contributor at The Cut, came in. He spilled his go-to tips for finding the perfect nude — and some pretty genius tricks for navigating the makeup counter in a hygienic way. Plus, he shared his pick for the best universal red out there. Basically, the new video is a three-minute crash course on all things lips.
