Best Bet: Kjaer Weis Lip Tint


At first glance, Danish makeup artist Kjaer Weis's collection doesn't appear to be makeup. Packaged in red lacquered boxes, the silver compacts seem more like pieces of jewelry — the weighty metal feels luxurious — and are meant to be one-time-only purchases, with cheek, lip, and eye refills sold separately. Weis's newest lip color, Romance, looks electric pink, but upon application, it leaves lips with the faintest flush. The carnauba wax goes on like a balm and is best dabbed on with your fingertip for a natural finish.
