The sky is blue, water is wet (for now), and celebrities love Laneige's Lip Sleeping Mask. They're universal truths, and the latter was just confirmed by Zoe Saldaña: In a video interview posted last week by Vogue India, the actress revealed that the K-beauty brand's best-selling lip mask is never far from her person.

Pulling out her Rare Beauty makeup bag, Saldaña said, "It's big, but I'm going back to always being prepared and having makeup." It seemed normal-sized to me, but then, maybe we both have a problem. "My lips are always chapped, so right now, I'm using a really good lip balm." The balm dujour? Laneige's signature raspberry-tinted tub.

A Look at the Makeup Zoë Kravitz Wore as Catwoman For "The Batman"

  A Look at the Makeup Zoë Kravitz Wore as Catwoman For We've seen quite a few variations of Catwoman over the years, but none of them are quite like Zoë Kravitz's portrayal of the comic-book character. Kravitz, who stars alongside Robert Pattinson in "The Batman," put a modern twist on the feline femme fatale, and she did it with the help of veteran celebrity makeup artist Pat McGrath. Kravitz's Catwoman is dark, alluring, and dangerous - but also, at times, soft. Her makeup reflects that duality.

And with that, Saldaña joined the long and illustrious list of stars who can't get enough of the stuff. By my current count, the club includes Sydney Sweeney — whose love for the lip mask led to her current Laneige partnership — along with Kendall Jenner, Iman, Kaia Gerber, Sara Sampaio, Brooke Shields, Sharon Stone, and Gemma Chan. The fandom's headcount rivals that of Augustinus Bader's Rich Cream, but at $22, this celebrity secret is multitudes more affordable.

Although given the treatment's more than 4,000 five-star ratings on Amazon and 799,000 likes at Sephora, perhaps "secret" isn't the right word. "Chart-topping, universally beloved favorite" is probably more accurate, considering the lip mask's status as Amazon's best-selling face mask; it even beats out Cetaphil and Aztec Secret Healing Clay for the seat, so you know the formula is unparalleled.

The 13 Best Sunburn Relief Products, According to Dermatologists

  The 13 Best Sunburn Relief Products, According to Dermatologists Experts recommend this sunburn relief plan to help cool, soothe, and heal your skin after getting too much sun.We get it—you went to the beach and forgot to reapply your SPF, or were enjoying the warm weather and didn't realize how long you were sitting out under the hot sun. Either way, you now look like a red hot jellybean (with bubbly blisters—yikes!) and it's more than a little painful. While the best plan of action is to prevent sunburn in the first place—since it can increase your risk of developing skin cancer and cause your skin to age quicker—no one's perfect, and most of us have made this mistake at one point or another.

"This stuff works like magic," wrote one Amazon shopper, who said they wake up with "super smooth, younger-looking" lips after using it the night before. At 61, another reviewer said it likewise plumped up their dry lips — findings seconded by a 50-year-old who credited it with filling in their lip lines. Those effects are thanks to its delicious ingredients like shea and murumuru butter, a number of different plant and synthetic waxes, hyaluronic acid, and cranberry, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, and coffee extracts.

Saldaña's excellent recommendations didn't stop there. "One of my girlfriends, Cameron Diaz — not to name drop or anything — she has this beautiful thing about her where if you compliment something on her, if she has it in her possession at that very moment, she just gives it to you," she explained with one of Merit's Flush Balms in hand. The clean brand's easy blusher was also behind Sarah Jessica Parker's glow on And Just Like That…, for fans keeping track (me).

This Hydrating Lip Oil That Doubles as a Tinted Gloss Has 'Changed the Game'

  This Hydrating Lip Oil That Doubles as a Tinted Gloss Has 'Changed the Game' Reviewers love how pigmented, creamy, and light it is.As someone who has little storage space but a healthy obsession with skincare and beauty, I'm fully behind the trend of makeup doubling as skincare (and vice versa). Think multitasking foundations that work as primer and sunscreen, lengthening mascaras formulated with keratin to strengthen sensitive lashes, and concealers that double as an eye cream to soothe out wrinkles and dark under-eye circles.

Complexion-wise, Saldaña highlighted Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage Concealer. "This is just for a little bit of insurance, but I don't use it all the time. I'm learning to accept myself by who I am — which is why I have another concealer, as well," she said with a laugh, pulling out Au Naturale's Organic Creme Concealer.

"I don't really use it all the time. But this is good because it's by a company owned by women called Au Naturale. They are very organic and also very sustainable, and I love the texture of their concealer." Shop the Saldaña-approved favorites below.

I’m Completely Hooked on Lip Blushing .
Here's what you need to know about the semipermanent lip tattooing technique.Ironically, they’re also one of very few things I’ve chosen to have “enhanced.” While I have access to all kinds of treatments, I felt uncomfortable doing something drastic to alter my weight or my nose before attempting to deal with my insecurities about them first. I’m glad I made that decision because neither of those things bother me anymore.
