The New Red Lipstick: Blurry

For the softest, most natural effect, lose the lip pencil and tap on a creamy red bullet, rolling a cotton swab along the outer edges to diffuse any sharp lines.

And while lipstick ingredients have varied wildly throughout time, one thing remains consistent: women are willing to put almost anything on their lips for the allure of a perfect scarlet pout, even if means exposure to toxic materials and...
