If summers are the time for lip glosses, I definitely start to reach for lip crayons in the fall. They’re long-wearing and tend to be moisturizing, but I find I don’t have to touch them up as often as lipsticks. That means they’re a winner in my book. I rounded up my favorite brands and colors above, from nude all the way to a night-out-on-the-town red. And can we just take a minute to appreciate the names of each color? That’s my secret dream job: naming makeup or nail polishes.
