NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Red Square, $24
“I love a strong, confident classic look that has a bit of an edge — Nars makes a beautiful crayon in Red Square. The matte stays on the best for me, as well as feels the most modern. I always say a pop of color on your lip not only brightens up your face, but it can brighten your entire outlook.”
