There’s a reason everyone loves Fiji. Not only is the soft pink really easy to apply (you only need two coats for a thick, opaque shine), but it lasts forever. Every girl needs a baby pink shade in her collection, and Fiji doesn’t disappoint.

Every girl needs a shade like Wicked in their collection. Not only does it suit every skin tone, but it’s a great alternative to black which is often a harsh shade for the office.
