SLIPPERY WHEN WET: A Guide to the Best Moisturizing Lipsticks this Season

It's almost impossible to escape the one big side effect of cold weather: Dryness. Layering with sweaters, scarves, and beanies will help protect your body and hair, but guarding your face from the winter winds is another story. The moment you leave the house, it often feels like your best attempts to keep your lips radiant and soft have fallen by the wayside. Not only do you experience discomfort due to irritation from the cold, but the cold can leave you looking less than attractive when you arrive at your destination. Dry, cracked lips can be an unsightly little detail, but thanks to lipsticks that protect and perfect your pout, winter can be a little more pleasant and pretty.

Nars is my #1 pick for this season's best moisturizing lipstick, because it gives necessary moisture without the worry of smugging onto skin or teeth. One swipe of color across your lips is enough to keep you looking fabulous for 6 to 8 hours. Nars also has the perfect variety of colors for all seasons like coral for Spring or bright pink for Summer. Stick to this stick and you'll be set for whatever your day brings.
