We get it: lipstick is high maintenance (and often, loud). To make it look nice, you need to exfoliate your lips, then prime them, and sometimes, even line them—all before the color touches your pout. And then there’s the touch-up you’ll need after lunch! If your formula isn’t bulletproof, the stuff can smear, smudge, and get all over your teeth.

…And yet, we love it. So for those of you who are turned off by lipstick because of all the effort it requires, here’s a solution! Meet the Lip Flush Sheer Healthy Lipsticks by Maybelline. As the name suggests, this collection features sheer, skin-friendly colors—nothing too bright, just enough to make your face look alive. Formulated with shea butter, each tube locks in moisture so you never have to worry about dry lips. No need to prime before wearing this lipstick—it’ll handle that all on its own.
It’s also got a smooth, balm-like feel and fades to a pretty stain. In other words, you get comfort and lasting color in a swipe. We swear, it’s the kind of thing that turns haters into appreciators. See the swatches below—we bet you’ll like more than one.
