Getting tired of basic, boring lipstick or lip gloss? Now there are many products available that go beyond just an ordinary tube of lipstick. Investigate some that “dual” more! There are plumpers, stains and even products you can use on cheeks and lips to save you time and money.
If you are after fuller lips, try a plumping lip duo like Tarte's Rise & Shine Plumping Lip Stain ($21) in Cherry or Pink. One side has a water-resistant stain, and the other has a sheer gloss that feels slightly tingly with Vitamin E, aloe and coconut oil to lock in moisture. Or, if you're more of a lipstick kind of gal, try Lipstick Queen's Oxymoron, which is described by its famous lipstick creator, Poppy King, as a matte gloss. You can also dab a little on your cheeks too for a complimentary glow. Investing in dual products will cut the time it takes to do your makeup and help streamline your routine.
