Matte About You
Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink City Edition Liquid Lipstick, $7.99 at Maybelline
These new City Edition shades are inspired by the buildings of New York City (our favorite is the orange-red Dancer that kind of feels like bricks, right?). And good news for those of us who want our lipstick to go the distance, just like its namesake the Big Apple, this long-wearing, stay-put-through-anything formula is tough as hell.
