I don't wear lipstick often, but I am well-supplied with Clinique lipsticks that I get "free" when I stock up during their sale giveaways. I LOVE Guava Stain (Different Lipstick)- it was included several years ago in one of the free gifts and it is one of the few that I've actually purchased again and again over the years.
But I never leave the house without a little bit of lip color- my favorite choice is Blistex Lip Tone lip balm- a soft, natural-looking rose tone, with 15 SPF, in a great balm. It adds color without looking like lipstick. Any lipstick- no matter the brand, seems to dry out my lips, so I always start with a base of this.
I also love Neutrogena's Moistureshine lip glosses. I'm not a shiny makeup person but I think a touch of gloss, 'specially on the lower lip- is really pretty. I feel too old in strictly matte lip color. In the summertime, I live in "First Blush".
