This new addition to the brand's lip lineup gives a smooth punch of matte color, without the annoying dryness that often accompanies this type of formula.Nyx Full Throttle Lipstick in Con Artist, $7, available in February at Nyx. #refinery29 http://www.refinery29.com/new-drugstore-makeup-products#slide-20
Beauty Products Everyone Should Own, Courtesy of L.A.'s Best MUAs
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 15 "It's a staple. It keeps your foundation from fading, helps to smooth the surface of your skin, and gives a beautiful glow all day...plus, it has an SPF 15. It's important to wear SPF all year, not just in the summer."
LIP BALM It's a bit extravagant for an everyday lip product ($55, to be exact), but the marine extracts do a heck of a job healing severely parched lips in record time. Reserve the little pot as a nighttime treatment and lips will be soft and lush by morning—and remain that way all day long.
