    35 Easy-To-Use Beauty Products You'll Probably Find Helpful If You Commute

    May these make your mornings easier even during "unexpected delays".

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A Teddie Organics toning spray that'll let you treat acne on-the-go and tell redness and oily T-zones to take a hike β€” all on your way to work. You just have to spritz. The best part: it has a heavenly 🌹rose scent 🌹.

    amazon.com

    It'll also restore your skin's pH balance and fade redness. It's everything you want your toner to do, except now you can use it WHEREVER. Plus it's organic and suitable for sensitive skin!

    Promising review: "I have very acne-prone and sensitive skin that is pale with pink and red undertones. I break out very easily, and my skin is irritated even by the 'sensitive skin' brands and formulas. I have used EVERYTHING under the sun to aid in redness and sensitivity, and nothing has worked to calm flare-ups like this. I wake up and my skin is glowing and peachy pale, as opposed to red and blotchy. This rose water has not only improved my skin's redness and overall tone, but it has virtually eliminated any signs on acne. I use before I put on my redness moisturizer and before bed as a refresher. I also find myself spritzing at various times of the day, because the fragrance is so pleasant." β€”Kathy Pancake

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    2. A travel-sized Amika dry shampoo, because this will come to the rescue whenever you don't have time to shower in the morning (aka five out of five work days). In fact, it's pretty darn close to washing your hair without water. It uses rice starch to absorb excess oil without leaving white residue, while also adding volume *and* cooling your scalp. All you need to do is spray on the train for "just washed" tresses.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "This smells SO GOOD and works amazing. My day three hair blowout looked like day one all over again after a few sprays of this. Bouncy, happy, shiny hair that has zero residue or flakes! It is a bit pricey, but worth the trouble in the end for great hair." β€”MixedGlitter

    Get it from Amazon for $10 (also available in full-size).

    3. A double-sided Revlon liquid eyeshadow so you can wave its wands and deliver whichever style you're in the mood for: a bit of fun sparkle or a pigmented cream shadow. Either way, you merely need to swipe β€” and it's basically impossible for even the bumpiest bus ride to mess it up.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I ordered this after seeing one of my favorite Youtubers using it in a tutorial and seeing how pretty it looked on her. I have to say, I'm so happy I ordered it. I've never been a fan of cream shadows because they can be tough to work with and are often a creasy mess, but this one is not that way. It is easy to apply and the cream shadow dries down completely and doesn't crease or feel heavy on the lid. Also, I've never had any fall out from the glitter throughout the day. Once it dries down, the glitter stays in place. I'm very happy with my purchase and plan to order several more in different shades." β€”K Nichole

    Get it from Amazon for $6.47+ (available in 10 shades).

    4. A Burt's Bees lip shimmer for nourishing your pucker and adding a *touch* of color at the same time. Not to mention, it's designed like a lip balm so you can apply it neatly even without a mirror.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these lip shimmers either for a bit of color or layering over lipstick. They add just the right amount of shine and they are good for moisturizing, especially after using long-wear lipstick. These smell really good, too. I love to have these on hand in the car." β€”Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $3.87+ (available in 13 shades).

    5. A Maybelline under-eye concealer that'll use a super simple sponge applicator tip and goji berry extracts to treat dark circles and puffy under-eyes in the easiest and neatest way possible while you're en route to work. You may be stuck in traffic, but at least now you *look* more awake.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This is the best under-eye concealer ever. I am 67-years-old and have tried them all. It blends nicely with my foundation and has never caked. The sponge applicator is soft and makes application quick and easy. I will continue to use this product and hope, like many products I've used over the years, that it doesn't get discontinued." β€”Morty

    Get it from Amazon for $7.94+ (available in 12 shades).

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's full review on why she loves this concealer in "Just 8 Maybelline Products We Really Love" (#4).

    6. A pack of Goodwipes body wipes, because these'll come in handy when you hit snooze 15 times instead of showering. They combine tea tree oil, cooling peppermint, and aloe to help you feel refreshed on your way to the office, instead of *sweating* it.

    instagram.com

    These are cedar-scented!

    Promising review: "I usually load up on a pack of these before vacations and have a few in my carry-on during long flights. During flights, I do tend to feel sticky and my skin gets dry from the same air being circulated throughout the plane. The reason why I opt for these is due to my strong B.O. Most of the time I smell it quite easily after a bit of sweating, and I really hate it. I wipe my upper body in the bathroom during flight and I come out feeling significantly fresher and comfortable. One wipe is more than enough to use for my upper body." β€”Hayden

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $9.99 (also available in "fresh" scent and lavender).

    7. A bun maker so you can make quick updo's look more chic and less messy. It's fast, easy, and will have your mane in a stylish ~chignon~ before the conductor even checks your ticket.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm horrible when it comes to doing my hair, so I can use all the help that I can get. These bun makers really make it so much easier, and they really do hold your hair securely without a bunch of pins or styling products! Highly recommended!" β€”M. Young

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    8. An Anastasia Beverly Hills cream stick for highlighting or contouring with one simple tool. No more trying to watch tutorials with your headphones in β€” your cheeks will be *glowing* before you have time to give up.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "This is a perfect color to contour my skin that has cool undertones. It blends really easily with fingers or a contour brush. It's super cost effective as well, as it lasted me almost a year with daily use on forehead, cheek bone, chin, and nose." β€”kurtzy911

    Get it from Sephora for $25 (available in four shades) or a similar highlighting stick from Amazon for $6.55+ (available in two shades).

    9. A set of Avarelle acne patches that reviewers say blend seamlessly with their skin, meaning you can slap one on when you get in the car and let it work its pimple-draining magic while at work. Surprise breakouts are no longer the bane of our mornings.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    They combine tea tree oil, hydrocolloid acid, and calendula oil to draw pus out of the zit *without* the need for popping β€” aka you won't have leftover scarring.

    Promising review: "When it comes to acne patches, I have tried them all. These patches are the best that I've tried. I like that they have more soothing ingredients in them than just being a bandage. I can see the evidence in my skin, (and on the patch) that they're working to shrink my pimple. I also love their packaging β€” it's genius that they have a notch in the plastic to make it easy to get the peel the patch off without touching the patch. I'm wearing a patch during the day, at my office in this photo (above), and you can barely see it. I will buy these again!" β€”Chris Johnson

    Get a pack of 40 from Amazon for $8.50 (also available in extra-large patches, sold separately).

    10. A trio of Broadway Vita-Lip clear lipgloss, because these'll not only add a touch of ~shine~ to your look without the need for a mirror (clear = no mess-up), but hydrate the heck out of your lips with three effective formulas. Rosehip oil moisturizes and heals cracked lips, mint oil delivers a cooling effect, and coconut oil ensures lasting hydration. Win, win, win.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this product after seeing many people reviewing this on Instagram and it was well worth it! It’s very moisturizing and makes my lips so glossy without me feeling sticky. It’s so soft too. I like the mint and rose the most. Overall, it's a great product and well-worth your money." β€”vincent truongcao

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.99 (available in four formula combinations).

    11. A CoverGirl matte concealer so you can avoid missing your bus in the name of covering a pimple, and just do it on your way to the office. Its stick design is easy to use and blend, plus reviewers say it takes *very* little to achieve full coverage without additional foundation. No fuss. No mess.

    amazon.com

    AND it's available in 30 shades, so it's easier to find one that actually looks natural.

    Promising review: "For all of you lovely makeup lovers (like myself), this stuff is amazing! I honestly thought I was going to get ehh ok results especially because I usually conceal with a peach/orange color correcting concealer for my under eyes and acne scars, because they're quite a bit darker than the rest of my face. I also normally set with a powder before applying my foundation over the top but I wanted to see if this was good enough on its own and it is. I didn't set it or my foundation and after shopping for hours in the Texas heat, there weren't any creases or patchy blotches. I love it." β€”Kimber Rosee

    Get it from Amazon for $7.54 (available in 30 shades).

    12. A Vogue Effects eyeliner stamp for conquering what we once thought was impossible: creating a perfect cat-eye mid-commute. No steady hand necessary: this'll stamp sharp wings on sans tears or drama.

    amazon.com

    This miracle worker has two sides: one is a triangle-shaped tip to create the perfect winged tip, while the other effortlessly glides to complete the look. It's even available in three sizes so you can choose the thickness of your wings!

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying this isn't my first cat-eye rodeo. I've tried the taping method, normal liquid liner, plastic winged stamping devices, stencils, all of it! So when I saw this I thought, meh, why not give it a shot. Well, this gem arrived and I immediately had to try it out, all while laughing at how terrible this would probably turn out....but to my surprise it was perfect. I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE BEEN ABLE TO DO A CAT-EYE IN UNDER 10 MINUTES, LET ALONE THE TWO MINUTES THIS TOOK TO DO! There were no sloppy streaks that I had to touch up or anything you would expect. Just a clean, crisp line." β€”LadyMeow

    Get a pack of two (one for each eye) from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three sizes).

    To learn more, check out "Hundreds Of People Swear By This Eyeliner Stamp For The Perfect Cat Eye". And! Check out what won best liquid eyeliners on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    13. A Lorac cream eyeshadow that'll deliver a bold, pigmented sheen to your lids with just one tool: your finger (you can even double this as a highlighter!). You'll probably even have time to snooze on the train after using this β€” did I mention it's crease- and smudge-proof?

    instagram.com

    AND it's oil-free so it'll last all day!

    Promising review: "Another amazing product by Lorac. This cream eyeshadow is very light and creamy. It feels like you are dipping your hand in clouds. It is highly pigmented. It lasted on my eyelids all day and it was not difficult to remove when I wanted to. It did not create a mess like other cream eyeshadows. I left the cap off by mistake last night and was expecting to find it dried-out, but surprisingly it has the same cloudy silky texture as the new product. The combination of glitters and base shade is very artistic. I usually buy one cream eyeshadow at a time, but this eyeshadow has too much product inside." β€”ML

    Get it from Ulta for $22 (available in six shades) or a similar cream eyeshadow from Amazon for $4.49+ (available in 22 shades).

    14. A TreeActiv acne spot treatment to treat active breakouts with an *incognito* approach that takes merely a moment to apply. This goes on CLEAR, aka it won't make a mess of your fingers (or your seat), will save you time in the morning, and can be worn under your makeup to let its peppermint and tea tree oil formula wish your pimple adieu as you go about your day.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the first time I've ever used Tree Activ. I absolutely love the product. I use it both at night time as well as during the day under my makeup. This product dries quickly and leaves no residue which saves me time in the morning. As far as acne control it actually works. I've tried a lot of products both drugstore and high-end, and have been disappointed. This clears up acne or a single pimple in about one to two days, which is awesome!!" β€”Amber Bracamonte

    Get it from Amazon for $18.

    15. A NYX liquid illuminator, because this'll leave you ✨glowing✨ after a few quick swipes with your fingers β€” even without foundation. Who woke up at 5 a.m. to catch the train? Ok, us. But now we look more awake.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "This is a great illuminator! I was surprised to find that the best illuminator I've ever tried would be by an affordable cosmetics company. I have tried TONS, and this one is the best by far. It's easy to apply and has a beautiful, subtle way of catching the light without looking oily. It's a really nice product." β€”Kathryn E. Merwin

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99+ (available in four shades).

    16. An Elizabeth Mott tinted brow gel so you can define your lil' caterpillars without the need for precision. Its triangle, brush-like spool fills in sparse hair and adds a bold finish in just a few swipes β€” shaking bus be darned.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm always skeptical of buying makeup online, but this stuff is wonderful! It's basically a tinted brow gel that fills and thickens the look of your brows. It's fast, easy, and great for someone who doesn't want to fuss with a pencil, gel or powder. Plenty of product comes off the brush and I didn't need to re-dip to do my second brow. It's very long wearing, not crunchy feeling and looks very natural. The product is also buildable. It filled in all the little gaps in my brows seamlessly." β€”Lee

    Get it from Amazon for $15+ (available in five shades).

    17. A compact LED mirror for knowing what your makeup will look like in natural light, despite being stuck in a tunnel. Plus, it boasts a two-sided magnification design so you can REALLY focus on your eyeliner.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's a handy (pretty much fits in the palm of your hand), large travel mirror. I like the large mirror size and the LED side is excellent. It shows your face in 'real' light. Also, if you're traveling and sharing a bathroom, this mirror is perfect for putting on makeup outside the bathroom and to also make sure that you're putting on the right amount of makeup (the light is very good). I highly recommend." β€”Jennifer N.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in three colors).

    18. A travel beauty sponge with an included case that'll let you neatly apply makeup without making a mess of your fingers whenever you're not somewhere you can wash your hands (aka the train bathroom is not...appealing). Not to mention it blends foundation, concealer, BB cream, etc. ~flawlessly~.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is so convenient! Every time when I apply foundation with beauty sponge, my hand will have a lot of foundation. With this handle I don't even have to wash my hand. Also, it comes with a case." β€”Me.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in two colors).

    19. Or! A carrying case to make it easier to travel with your traditional makeup blender. Now applying foundation outside of your bathroom won't come with the risk of picking up your purse's bacteria.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "This is perfect for traveling to keep makeup blenders clean and easy to pack. It even has a small vent to help with drying when you're in a hurry." β€”Coleman

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    20. A Coty Airspun face powder, because this can be used as both foundation *and* setting powder β€” and streamlines everything down to a one-minute process. Basically acne, fine lines, and shine will be tackled all at once without having to bring 100 beauty products with you (and reviewers say it stays matte all darn day).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am totally blown away by this product! I have been consistently using a more expensive powder for about six months, and was dissatisfied with the fact that my skin appeared oily by the end of the work day. By 5 p.m. I have been wearing my makeup for about 10 hours. I also live in a warm climate and have oily skin. By the end of my work day using this powder, my face is still very matte! I am THRILLED! This way outperforms the other powder and is 13% of the cost. I can't believe it. I'm never going back." β€”AlexisJulian

    Get it from Amazon for $5.67+ (available in six shades and two sizes).

    To learn more, check out "This $6 Face Powder Will Actually Make Your Makeup Look Flawless".

    21. A Nanaka roll-on perfume oil so you can ~freshen up~ without trying to fit an entire bottle in your purse β€” or spray for the entire train car to smell, for that matter. And! Each scent is blended with sunflower oil and vitamin E to start your day on a satisfying *note*.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I am always looking for a good, clean fragrance since most of them give me a headache and these are the perfect solution! They are phthalate free which is always a plus. I love the CROWN scent because it smells like clean, fresh amber. It is a soft and powdery scent and I love it! Definitely try this if you like a soft, fresh scent!" β€”RubyRoo

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $20 (available in seven scents).

    22. A Vivienne SabΓ³ mascara for making sure the need for lash primer (aka just one more thing to pack) beforehand is zilch. Why? This'll be a one-stop journey to thick, fanned lashes in just a bat of your eye, thanks to its clump-free, drama-loving formula. Reviewers say they just need a couple swipes β€” aka only a couple minutes of wrestling with your seat mate for space.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have religiously used Diorshow Black mascara for the past decade. I decided that I no longer wanted to spend $30 on mascara, so I decided to venture out a find a more affordable brand. After reading the reviews on Amazon, I decided to purchase this product. The brush is small, which makes it easy to work both the top and bottom lashes. The product itself it thick enough to make a noticeable difference on my lashes, but not too thick that it looks clumpy. I have had no issues with the product running either, and I tend to rub my eyes frequently." β€”Denay

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    See what won best waterproof mascara on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    23. A cuticle and oil nail pen that'll drastically repair brittle, damaged nails and cuticles β€” and can totally be used mid-commute. People actually also use this to stop biting their nails, meaning you can put an end to the habit yourself in your free time (aka on your way to work).

    amazon.com

    Its nourishing formula combines jojoba wax ester (a v hydrating ingredient), vitamins A and E, and grape seed and tea tree oil.

    Promising review: "I NEVER leave reviews for anything I buy, good or bad, because I buy so much stuff from Amazon, but THIS deserves a review. My nails were brittle, flaky, and peeled very easily. I applied this multiple times a day, and saw mega improvement in my nails. They weren't completely fixed so I bought another, because as I said, my nails were improving. I'm a little more than halfway done with the second one and my nail are so strong! So so strong. I totally recommend it. It's worth the $8." β€”Don

    Get it from Amazon for $7.45 (available in three scents).

    24. A travel detangling brush available in three different designs for fine, normal, and thick hair. Each feature ~428~ bristles and are easy to pack, so you won't have to alter your routine and risk painful knotting whenever you're on the move β€” these'll keep your mane happy.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I have curly hair and I like the full-size brush from this company and when I found out there is a travel size, I had to try it. While other travel brushes damage and take a lot of effort to detangle my hair, this brush easily detangles and allows me to quickly brush my hair with minimal ripping. So far this is the best travel brush I have ever tried." β€”Slava Plotkin

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in three styles).

    25. A NYX makeup-setting spray, because this'll ensure your hard work lasts (and lasts) with a lightweight, matte finish after a few quick spritzes. Foundation? Locked in. Eyeshadow? There to STAY. All before the person next to you even notices.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a lot of acne and oily skin and I must say this setting spray is really the cherry on top! When I put this on after I finish applying makeup, I NEVER get oily! I have worn this through two shifts (I have two jobs), rode two buses to get home, and walked home, and I still looked flawless! This is a must-have." β€”Sasha

    Get it from Amazon for $3.79.

    26. An InnisFree roll-on eye serum so you can perk up dark, tired under-eyes on the very bus that forced you to wake up at the crack of dawn. Its combo of green tea extract and seed oil delivers a cooling sensation *and* intense hydration β€” may this bring you a moment of peace when you hit tunnel traffic.

    Sephora

    Get it from Sephora for $20.

    27. An Undone Beauty lip and cheek cream for creating a rosy glow in the easiest way possible β€” and with the least amount of products. You can use it as both a creamy blush and lip tint so your bag is less cluttered, you don't need any tool other than your finger, and your complexion is instantly dewy.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Each of the three shades is a three-in-one palette for blending, highlighting and tinting of both your lips and cheeks.

    Promising review: "I loved this! It's my favorite of the Undone Beauty products! When applied to the cheek it makes you look super rosy and fresh and I received so many compliments on my makeup when I wore this for the first time. It applies much more matte on your lips, but makes for a great base underneath gloss or other lipstick. It reminded me of a much more expensive cream blush. This is the best buy!" β€”cecily knee

    Get it from Amazon for $10 (available in three shades).

    28. A Wet n' Wild cushion foundation that'll provide full coverage on-the-go, aka every morning when you "accidentally" snooze until it's time to LEAVE. Plus, you can flip it over for even *more* product since it's easy to forget you're running out of makeup when you only use it half awake.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "Big wow! It goes on easily, blends well, feels very lightweight, and enough in there for the price to be a really good deal." β€”Mama done told you

    Get it from Amazon for $7.48 (available in eight shades).

    29. A Stila correcting serum, because this'll address all your concerns with one easy-to-use product. This bb will neutralize redness, conceal blemishes, energize skin tones, and brighten complexions β€” all before the light turns green. What do we want? RESULTS. How do we want it? Quickly, before this bus starts moving.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am so in love with this product! It really corrects and evens out my skin tone...like a magic primer. It's the first step and everything that follows is completely easy. You don't have to worry about blending your makeup, because this already does that for you. It's a bit pricey, just like other Stila products, but truly, a little goes a long way. You will only need half a pump per use." β€”sarah paulson

    Get it from Amazon for $36 (available in three formulas).

    30. A pack of charcoal oil-absorbing tissues so you can confront shiny T-zones head on by absorbing excess oil, controlling shine, AND soothing irritated complexions with bamboo charcoal. A few blots = matte skin by the next stop.

    amazon.com

    They're even all-natural! They're made from 100% natural linen fibers with organic bamboo charcoal to keep you nice and fresh all day.

    Promising review: "I ordered the charcoal ones which are blissfully unscented. The package is a little smaller than a credit card and less than a quarter inch thick making it easy to fit in a purse. The wipes are more than ample to use once over the entire face and absorb oil as promised. I've found them especially useful when I'm on the run to meet friends after work and have no time/desire to wash my face and reapply makeup. The 100 count has been lasting well and these do not need to be used often at all. When I remember, I tend to use one a day after my lunch walk in the heat." β€”Miss Print

    Get a pack of 100 from Amazon for $6.60 (available in three scents).

    31. A double-sided lip brush tool for ensuring your lipstick is applied e v e n l y on the first try so you don't have to deal with feathering (or worse, redoing it again and again when you don't have TIME). This'll make your pucker flake-free and smooth.

    Amazon

    It's even more effective when paired with a lip scrub, but reviewers also use it alone!

    Promising review: "This was one of those things that when my husband opened the box from amazon, said 'why on earth do you need a lip exfoliater?' Well I’ll tell ya why. Because it’s amazing. It’s obviously quite easy to use but extremely effective. Thirty-ish seconds of using this and dead skin and gunk came flying off my lips. They looked healthier than they ever have. And this is coming from someone who has used lip scrubs for years. I’m going to buy more and probably just stash them in my purses, my car, and around my house because I’m obsessed." β€”mscheirer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three colors).

    32. A Revlon nail buffer that'll help you maintain shiny, strong nails without the need for professional manis and can EASILY be used when you're still barely awake on the subway. It shapes and shines even brittle nails so they always look *well-groomed*.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was not expecting much, because I'm used to nail buffers that take forever to use because they do not smooth over the nail sufficiently so there are obvious bumps. However, this buffer already polished my nail with the first side as well as my other sets did at finish. Then the second side (white side) polished my nails in seconds. The shine lasts and lasts! Touch-up is easy and I have never been more satisfied with a nail buffer in my life!" β€”Alexandra

    Get it from Amazon for $4.26.

    33. A pack of shadow shields, because these'll prevent powder fallout when the train inevitably lurches and your eyeshadow shifts β€” but now your foundation will remain unharmed.

    Amazon

    OR you can use these as a stencil to help you make a clean cat-eye!

    Promising review: "I'm so glad I found these! I've always had trouble with fallout under my eyes, even with good brushes and quality makeup. Now I don't have to worry at all. When I use these I can do my foundation first and then my eye makeup. I would hate having to wipe away shadow from my cheeks and apply more concealer. I'll be buying more boxes of these." β€”Tasha

    Get a pack of 30 from Amazon for $8.95.

    34. A tube of Glossier cloud paint so you can dab a little color on your cheek, nose, WHEREVER in no time at all. Meaning even if you just use this and a little mascara two minutes before you reach the office, you'll look awake and refreshed.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I used traditional powder blushes daily up until purchasing this product. My skin is super dry and I didn't know I could have such a natural blush look until Cloud Paint! It really is easy to blend and builds up in color without much effort. The packaging is beautiful and is the perfect size to take anywhere with you. Please never stop making this blush!!!" β€”Glossier Customer

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in six shades).

    Check out our review of Cloud Paint for more on why this blendable blush is totally worth it.

    35. A L'orΓ©al two-sided liquid lipstick for creating a bold red lip without worrying about flaking or feathering, thanks to its included conditioning balm. Not to mention, its gloss formula leaves a lot less room for error than traditional lipstick β€” especially when there's a moving bus involved.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I'm a huge fan of this product. It's an easy everyday lipstick as the color lasts forever. I'm a huge fan of bold reds, and an even bigger fan of matte lipsticks so I'm not used to the gloss side of things. It's a really great, easy look that doesn't dry out your lips." β€”Melanie Leigh

    Get it from Amazon for $8.93+ (available in 31 shades).
