Best Bets Daily: Wednesday

Kiss Off

Posted July 20, 2005
Call it boho rebellion, but I love this 1940’s inspired “bullet lipstick” from Besame Cosmetics. The tiny tube comes in 12 rich colors derived from vintage makeup palettes and fashion lines, and uses a creamy formula that feels great—not greasy—during application. Besides the cool packaging, the lipstick’s sharp tip acts like a cosmetics crayon, allowing you to line your lips before filling them in. And the size—a mere 1.1 inches—lets you carry the beauty bullet anywhere, ensuring you’re always dressed to kill.
