I think I may have found the Holy Grail of lip gloss, and at least the really nice chalice of lipstick. MAC's In the Groove Cremesheens are non-sticky and moisturize like nobody's business. I tried two shades of the gloss: Fashion Whim ($18), a sweet, milky nectarine hue that's just opaque enough to give the impression of glossy nude lips; and You've Got It ($18), a subtle silvery purple that's cool-tinged, nearly transparent, and wholly sophisticated.
I also liked the new Cremesheen lipsticks. My only concern is that they move a lot, even when I put down copious layers of lip liner. The colors are too good to pass up, though. My suggestion: All Styled Up ($14) is very similar to Lady Gaga VivaGlam, but slightly brighter.
