The Claim: These sticks aim to deliver rich color that lasts all day, and they're loaded with vitamins A, C, and E as well as shea butter to help give lips a fuller effect and keep them hydrated for up to 12 hours.
Expert Opinion: Add one to your shopping cart. "They're very moisturizing, and the shades have a bit of a sheen, which helps give the appearance of a fuller mouth," says N.Y.C. makeup artist Anthea King. The super-creamy formula also offers full coverage and "leaves a light stain of color, even after hours of wear."
Our Take: It's no shot of Restylane, but one happy staffer loves how a terra-cotta version makes her lips look "more defined and slightly plumper, with zero feathering." Another tester slicked on a coral hue, then "drank two cups of coffee, ate a pear, chewed gum, and had a bowl of soup." The verdict? "The color didn't budge, and my lips still felt hydrated."
