Rosso Valentino Refillable Lipstick in Matte and Satin Finish, $55:
Designer Valentino Garavani Red has long made the brand’s signature color, so it comes as no surprise that out of the 50 lipsticks, 18 are fiery crimson. And every shade of crimson is suitable for a variety of skin tones, as well as other shades of pink, peach, coral, and nude. Along with a range of dazzling shades to choose from, the lipsticks come in two finishes: matte and satin. The matte formula rests comfortably on your lips and doesn’t feel dry. Plus, the satin lipstick glides on smoothly and feels soft on the pillow. The only drawback (which breaks my heart) is the packaging. The product comes in refillable tubes, but I noticed that the case kept popping and swaying, causing the lipstick to smear all over.
Dream Dust Lip and Cheek Loose Glitter, $32:
On those days, you want to add a little dazzle. The product, which appears lightweight, will dress up your lips and cheeks in a champagne pink color. The shiny bowl is dispensed with a small brush, keeping it mess-free and hassle-free. However, if you plan to eat and drink, know that it is easy to get rid of. Although I don’t see myself wearing this often, with Fashion Week just around the corner, this might be the perfect reason to dust it off and disguise itself in a sparkly makeup look.
