    Listerine recently downgraded to a "less intense" formula, but lipsticks, for the most part, have not. You can either go for full pigment with a stain, a stick, or a crayon, or go for the sheer gloss and balm situation on lighter days. Sometimes, you may even combine, slicking a layer of shine on top of your trusty signature color.That's a great way to do nighttime makeup (our favorite combo, currently, is a Make Up For Ever lipstick topped with a CoverGirl gloss, like Pat McGrath did on the Prada catwalk). But if you want to do a movie instead of a night out - and you want makeup to match - we like the In Between made by Milani.The cheapo drugstore brand has new Lip Flash crayons, which are opaque enough to keep color on your lips, but light enough to maintain a natural and easy vibe. The pink and red shades are great for your mouth, while the purple and brown work just as well as a glossy eyeshadow. Just make sure you don't mix-and-match if you want to get creative - this makeup may be low-maintenance, but you've still got to be diligent with the safety stuff.$7 each at drugstores or online.
