I would call myself a lipstick connoisseur. I own every shade under the sun and constantly test聽the latest and greatest new beauty launches, so it takes a serious game-changing product to become one of my聽faves. I thought I had seen it all when it came to lipstick (stickers, anyone?), but then I was introduced to lip powder and聽instantly became obsessed AF.

The Cle Cosmetics Melting Lip Powder ($20) is a bold, bright pigment that comes in actual powder form. Yep, just like the loose eyeshadow you鈥檝e finally mastered.聽Here鈥檚 why I鈥檓 a lip powder believer.

The colors are highly saturated. There鈥檚 nothing worse than swiping on a lipstick in a hue you鈥檙e in love with, only to find that it shows up muted on the lips. This powder goes on your lips exactly as it appears in the bottle, which is very vivid (in a good way). You can intensify the hues even more by layering it 鈥 but keep in mind that just one swipe is all you need for a perfectly pigmented pout.

The formula leaves your lips feeling extra hydrated. The lip powder is infused with vitamin E, which results in a feeling that is somewhere between a hydrating lipstick and a moisturizing balm, so there鈥檚 no need to worry about the color cracking or flaking.

The powder looks fresh for hours. It鈥檚 common to have to reapply an in-your-face lip color after a couple hours of wear, but these pigments eliminate that need entirely. The shade looks fresh hours after you鈥檝e been sporting it and it easily stays put on your pout through meals. The only reason you鈥檇 need to break it out of your purse again is if you wanted to intensify the color.
