I can look slightly dead when I don't have anything on my lips, so for the past couple of years, I've used Sisley Paris's Phyto-Lip Twist in Pinky as my go-to base shade. I use it year-round, but the color — a violet-ish pink — is particularly good for spring and summer. I'll admit, it's not the longest-lasting product I've tried, but it leaves the prettiest flush on your lips even after it fades. (How many products can you say that about?) And as promised, it glides on smoothly and provides the tiniest bit of gloss. I don't use it as much as I used to, but this crayon still remains one of my favorite beauty purchases of all time. As far as lip crayons go, Sisley Paris's can justify its $50 price tag.
