5 Multitasking Lipsticks Every Mom Needs (PHOTOS)

Adriana Velez | Aug 13, 2014 Beauty & Style

lip glossI put on lipstick every morning before I leave for work, and it usually disappears by the time I get into the office. Obviously I could reapply once I get into work, but then I'd have to 1) remember to bring it with me and 2) remember to re-apply it. Believe it or not, these two things are completely beyond my capability. Help! I need lip color that thinks for me and works overtime.

Am I asking too much of my makeup? Of course not. I've come across 5 lip products that multitask for me like a busy mama needs them to. I love these lip treatments so much, I could kiss them.

    I heard about Lip Glow from a friend of mine. I spent the day with her and noticed her whip out this tube of pale pink "lipstick," applying it without a mirror. Somehow her lips were not pale pink but that perfect color, MLBB. (My Lips But Better.) Dior Addict Lip Glow instantly turns your lips your perfect shade -- like magic! I tried it myself the other day and was impressed. It gave me a flattering shade of rose with lots of moisture, and it lasted all day long. ALL DAY! (Dior Addict Lip Glow, $32 at Sephora)

  • Barry M Genie Lipstick

    Barry M also has a color-changing lipstick that starts out green! It's supposed to respond to your pH levels to deliver the perfect shade for your face -- and it's a cool trick to pull off in front of your kids. Plus it's a price we can get behind! (Barry M Genie Color Change Lipstick, $8.71 at ASOS)

  • Benefit Benetint

    Benetint is a lip and cheek stain by Benefit. One product, two uses, yes! It goes on like nail polish (WHAT???) to give you a natural, rosy color. Keep in mind, it's not a moisturizing product, so you'll want to layer lip balm over it after it's set in. (Benefit Benetint, $30 at Sephora)

  • Pure Illumination Light Up Lip Gloss

    This is a fun one for date night: A lip gloss that comes with its own LED light and mirror. So you can apply it right after the movie ends, or just as you're leaving the restaurant, without having to dig around for your compact mirror. Pure Illumination has vitamin E and botanical oils to hydrate your lips too. (Pure Illumination Light Up Lip Gloss, $20 at Folica)

    And now for a cheap thrill -- really cheap. These Twistable Intense Lip Color crayons apply with a light, glossy texture. The color is supposed to last six hours. Be warned: The frosty shades are really frosty. Roosevelt Island Red is the perfect summery red -- juicy and semi-sheer, but still bold.
