Yeah, I’m still in my pajamas, but I’m in the comfort of my home, which leads me to two recent revelations…
1. Pajamas in public
It’s been ages since I’ve seen anyone, adult or teen, wearing pajamas in public, and to this I say HALLELUJAH.
2. I found a really lovely drugstore matte liquid lipstick
I mean, it isn’t an *exact* dupe, so don’t grab your car keys and run to the door yet. 🙂 But it’s very similar. The NARS one is, like, probably the smoothest, most comfortable liquid lipstick I’ve ever tried, and if you have vertical lip lines like I do, it’s also one of those rare liquid lipsticks that hugs your lips and just looks very, very smooth. Plus, it’s completely opaque. One layer does the trick, and it also doesn’t suck the moisture from your lips.
The Healthy Lip is all of that and more because it’s eight bucks!
Unlike the NARS one, though, The Healthy Lip has a mousse-y formula, like most liquid lipsticks, meaning that it’s not completely runny, whereas the NARS one has an extremely thin, runny consistency — almost like you’re putting water on your lips, which can make it tougher to apply (but you get used to it, right?).
To apply The Healthy Lip, just slick a little on your pout, move it around with a finger or the included doe foot, and you’re fine for at least four hours. There’s no learning curve whatsoever.

It’s available in 13 super pretty colors, and they’re the kinds of colors I like to wear — pinks, peaches, reds, berries — all the wearable stuff, so you can go nude or glam, and there are no crazy grays or blues or purples or anything like that.
On top of everything, the formula is unscented and unflavored (and hypoallergenic, fragrance free, paraben free and cruelty free), so no worries about them tasting or smelling funny, either. These are just really easy to wear, comfy, non-drying, and they’re only eight bucks!
Can’t beat that.
