I think the best way to get the bold, bright lips that are so hot this season is to use M.A.C's Lip Mix.
The consistency of this product is so unique. It creates a highly concentrated, pigment that really makes a statement. There is also so much versatility in this product as well. You can mix it with other products to create new colors for the lips cheek or even eyes. It's creamy without being the slightest bit greasy. It stays on for hours without drying the lips as it provides hydration. In the shots here I used the one in orange although they don't list it on their website. I also used the one in black. Just awesome!
