How To Wear It At Night

"Go for a luxe formula with pink-y undertone, think cantaloupe."

Making It Last

"If your lips are dry use a moisturizing consistency.  A great way to maintain to perfect pout is to take the entire lip off and reapply when needed. For the girl on the go use a sheer, glossy tangerine stain."
