While I love a vibrant, bold lipstick, sometimes I just don’t have time for it. Rocking a punchy pigment may spice up my look, from the precise application to allowing the formula to fully set in place, but lipsticks can also be dehydrating and impractical. Finding a lippie that gives me the best of both worlds — a touch of color and next-level nourishment — is a major win.
So you can imagine how obsessed I was when I discovered Memebox Nooni Appleberry Lip Oil ($12), which launched this month. Its one-stop-shop formula leaves behind a wash of natural pigment while it exfoliates and hydrates. The ingredients include moisturizers like olive, jojoba, and argan oils, but the real MVP is apple water extract. The sweet addition is a natural exfoliator, so it smoothes over areas of uneven texture, resulting in pure pout perfection.
Aside from the formula, I am so here for the hue it leaves behind. It’s a universally flattering, barely there, rosy tint that works with any outfit and any occasion. After a couple of uses, it became my purse staple. Once the oil soaks into your lips, the flushed, healthy tone remains for several hours, making this a certified stain too.
Whether I’m running to a meeting or hopping in a cab, this mighty little lippie has become my go-to. I love knowing I can tie my look together in just a few seconds by using it — whether I have access to a mirror or not — and that it will keep my pout looking fresh for hours, period.
