Revlon Color Charge Lip Powder
Yes, you read that right: Revlon recently released the Color Charge line, which includes lip powder. The trick is to first apply the Color Charge Lipstick of choice before dusting your puckers with the lip powder, which comes in two compacts with five different sparkly shades each. It’s fun to play around with the shades, plus you can even use the powder as eyeshadow!

EB Advance Contour Shade and Light Palette
You may not have a lot of time to do a Kim K contour (besides, it’s not really that “in” anymore), but knowing how to play with light and shadow is still something that you need for a simple but effective daily look. EB Advance’s Contour Palette has shades perfect for morenas. The product is easily buildable, plus you can play around with six muted hues that can neutralize and correct any harsh lines or mistakes you may have made. Putting on primer first can help the product last longer on your face.
TRY: EB Advance Contour Shade and Light Palette, P415 (price varies), at Watsons, The Landmark Department Store, The SM Store, and Robinsons Department Stores
Claudia Schiffer Make Up Illuminator and Lip Gloss
Bring the ‘90s back with the limited-edition Claudia Schiffer Makeup done in collaboration with Art Deco! Our top favorites include the Illuminator and the Lip Gloss (though the blue eye shadow palette comes in close second). Don’t let the packaging fool you—the Illuminator may come in what seems like a nail polish bottle but it’s actually a long-lasting highlighter in delicate pink. Use it as a base to your powder highlighter if you want a soft, velvety glow, then pair it with the line’s lip moisture- and collagen-rich glosses in Lollipop and Kiss me.

Maybelline Facestudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter
We know that you don’t really have the time to put on a full face on a daily basis, but if there’s one extra thing you should try investing in, it would be highlighter. Highlighters can immediately launch you from a five to 10 in a few brush strokes, and a little goes a long way! Try one of three Maybelline options and brush them on the highest points of your cheekbones for starters. If you have blush on, it’ll add dimension to it; if not, it’ll give your skin a classy and healthy glow.
TRY: Maybelline Facestudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Molten Gold, Molten Peach, and Molten Topaz, P499, at Maybelline beauty counters.

Not only do they make your lips look plump, they also help keep the skin on your puckers from drying and breaking. What’s more, the brand is having a Nationwide Natural Lipstick Day Sale from June 26 to 28, so you may want to check their online store out to stock up.
