Say goodbye to the era of dry lips from long-wear lipstick. Introducing a new collection of conditioning, comfortable and easy-to-apply lip color that delivers 10 hours of fresh, vibrant wear. The easy one-step formula introduces Color Fix Technology, patented flexible new polymers that offer greater adhesion and truer color that won’t flake off or fade. Formulated with Vitamin E and Ceramide 5, it provides a healthy shine instead of dreaded dryness characteristically associated with some long-wear color. Available in a wide range of color families – from reds, pinks and plums to mauves, corals and browns – every woman can find a shade that is uniquely “her.”
