The market for lip products is never-ending, making it nearly impossible to whittle down your options amongst the plethora of balms glosses, oils, and yes, even lip masks currently available. When our perennial girl crush, Anna Kendrick, sings the praises of one that she claims provides color, plumps lips (subtly), and can be swiped on both lips and cheeks, we take note.
In a recent interview with The New York Times, the Into the Woods star dished on her beauty routine, singling out a multipurpose stain from Jane Iredale as her newest lip obsession, saying, “I’m not big on lip color, but I like to have a little something. I just ordered a Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain ($25, janeiredale.com). It doesn’t just give you that bee-stung thing for two seconds; it lasts for hours.” Apply the stain to lips and cheeks and watch as it melds with your skin to create a custom, natural looking flush. Unlike many lip and/or cheek stains, which can quickly dry out lips, Iredale’s comes packed with moisturizing ingredients, like olive butter, avocado butter, and wild rose wax. Take that, regular lip balms.
