Online food editor Lynn Andriani says she's only ever worn pink powder blush and a swipe of light lipcolor, but in the name of beauty research she gave this mango-colored liquid stain for lips and cheeks a go. After noticing that her new sheer, coral flush lasted on her cheeks and lips all day (and after several cups of coffee), she was hooked. It also solved her biggest makeup pet peeve: her hair sticking to her lip gloss. The key, Andriani says, is to apply three short strokes of this tint with the nail polish–like brush on one cheek at a time (or a few dots on your lips) and blend quickly—the formula dries fast.
