USERS SAID: “These really are much more sheer versions of the classic liquid lipstick - they feel light as air and comfortable, and they're easier to apply because you don't have to worry as much about precision.”
BEST FOR: With ingredients like avocado oil and vitamin E, your lips will stay moisturized throughout the day.
Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner

USERS SAID: “As long as they make them I will never be without NARS lipstick in Dolce Vita, Damage, and Tolede. They are lovely and perfect every day lippies, moisturizing and comfortable to wear.”
