long-lasting lip markers on the cheap.

by liza darwin

Almost a year later, the lipstain obsession that first invaded our beauty drawers last summer is still going strong. While it's easy to be overwhelmed by all these crayons, markers, and pots, the good part about this abundance of products is that they just keep getting better.

Case in point: these new Smooch Proof 16-Hour Lip Stain from NYC New York Color. Available in 10 different matte shades from super-pale peach to a bright berry, these colors really do last forever (we swear we saw remnants of the hot pink that we wore last night when we woke up this morning!).

In a stroke of genius, the tip of the markers is extremely thin, making it easy to get ultimate precision on difficult places like the top "v" or outer edges- something you can't get with a chunky crayon.

And all at the price of a latte, we can't think of a better way to get some lip.
