Forget standard doe foot and brush applicators, Kevyn Aucoin Beauty is here to shake things up with its The Lip Gloss (£23). Within this tiny, travel-friendly bottle lies one of the most ingeniously designed applicators we've seen. Curved, flexible, and U-shaped, this sponge-tipped applicator was specially designed to mimic the appearance and feel of a makeup artist's pinky finger — why didn't we think of that? — for coverage that's more precise and even. And thanks to its miniature size, you'll tote this lip colour with you everywhere this Summer, from your gym bag to your nighttime clutch. Available in 12 shades, Valentina is a standout; this nonsparkly, nongoopy cool berry tone (aka Valentina) looks fresh and pretty on its own or as an accent over your favorite lipstick.
