The countdown till spring 2013 has begun. What does this mean? New reasons to update your makeup kit with covetable new tones better suited for the style challenges that lay ahead. If lipsticks are among the first staples which you’re thinking about replacing, the new Smashbox Mega Tint Long Wear Lip Color collection is definitely one worth considering. Consisting of six new shades, the collection aims to bring a variety of options to match more than one skin tone.

The qualities of the new lip enhancing products extend well beyond simple aesthetic characteristics that get noticed first. After all, they’re called Long Wear Lip Color for a reason. The new richly pigmented lipsticks are formulated to make you look perfectly polished for up to eight hours. Though the color naturally wears off as hours pass, the tint will remain. One less thing to worry about beauty wise and a decent selection of tones? Sounds like a win to us.
