    New from Bobbi Brown, the Creamy Matte Lip Color comes in 12 vibrant shades of long-wearing—and moisturizing!—lipstick that delivers high-wattage color. The light-as-air formula goes on smooth as it combines special emollients and soft waxes to create a conditioning barrier on the lips that won’t transfer, feather or smear for up to 8 hours. Plus, it’s designed to soften slightly with the warmth of the lips, which enables the full color release. $24
