I love a dramatic lip, but I just can't stand the feeling of lipstick. It's too drying to comfortably wear for any period of time, and my lips feel like a desert when I take it off. A lot of people struggle with the desire to play up their lips while, maintaining a comfortable makeup look. Now you don't have to choose, with these great options for people who aren't fans of wearing lipstick.
Fenty's Stunna Lip Paint

Not only is this lipstick the best red you can buy on the market, but it works great for people who normally aren't lipwear fans. The stunning red formula manages to compliment every skin tone and goes on smoothly like a true liquid, before drying to a semi-matte finish. It doesn't work like any other liquid lipsticks I've tried, which can feel heavy and uncomfortable once they've set. Stunna feels light as air and non-drying, which is great because the lipstick has incredible 12 hour lasting power.

While this isn't as beloved as Benefit's Benetint, it has a lot more color options and is great for a subtle pop of natural looking color. You can add layers to build up the color, and can put it on your lips, cheeks, or lids. It's a cheaper option than Benetint, but the formula doesn't seem to be consistent amongst all the colors. Try them out and see which ones work best for your skin, beauty routine, and budget.
