You know that crazy feeling when you stare into your closet—that's chockfull of clothes, mind you—but decide you have nothing to wear? We often experience the same when it comes to our lipstick collection. Yep, believe it or not, there are days when not one of the 97 shades of pink lippies we own seems to do the trick.
But lo and behold, we've finally found a fix for our affliction in the form of Make Beauty's The Universal Stick ($24; makebeauty.com). Apply a swipe of the stuff over any lipstick and watch as it transforms the shade into a more jewel-toned version of itself, all thanks to a blend of micro-encapsulated pigments.
We've tried it over our favorite petal-pink stain and saw an iridescent effect, while a swipe on top of red cooled the tone down in an instant. Not too bad for one little tube.
