My Lazy-Beauty Secret? These
3 Lipsticks

goop graphic designer Emma Elliott got into lipstick the second she realized this secret: You can be a lot lazier, stylewise, when you wear it. “I pretty much wear similar variations on jeans, a T-shirt, and straight hair every day,” she says. “Lipstick gives me an entirely different look.”

Her three favorites all come from the sleekly packaged Kosas; made with moisturizing organic botanical oils and nourishing shea butter, they feel pretty fantastic. “The texture is really creamy and has a bit of a balm feel to it,” says Elliott. The colors, of course, are what she loves most. If she doesn’t have time for her typical routine—tinted moisturizer, concealer, highlighter, mascara, and a bit of brow pencil—she picks one of these colors and…and nothing. That’s it. “Lipstick somehow manages to stand in for everything else,” she says. “I don’t feel the need to make my brows stronger or even use concealer when I’ve got my lips going.”

We can’t decide which one best accentuates her iridescent green eyes, gleamy skin, and quietly confident aura. All we know is we’re putting three new Kosas shades into our rotation, too.

    CLASSIC FIERY RED

    “This bright red makes me feel edgier and sexier—it takes any outfit up a notch. It’s sooo good with a slinky slip, like my G. Label one. I’ll wear it out with my girlfriends or for a festive dinner or to a party.”

      MOST WEARABLE PINK


      “The beauty of this neutral pink is it looks as cool with a hot-pink strappy thing as it does with something casual, like jeans and a T-shirt. A pink pink is fun, but I feel like myself in this.”

      “I’m a sassier, cooler, riskier version of myself when I put this color on. I like that I can be more buttoned-up with what I wear with it—it sort of does the talking for me.”
