Seriously, what is more goof-proof and fuss-free than drawing on your face with a giant crayon and blending with fingertips? So portable, so easy, and best of all, no makeup brushes to wash. When I first glimpsed the Annabelle Perfect Cream Blush ($9.99 at London Drugs) and Annabelle Perfect Cream Highlight ($9.99 at London Drugs) at last year's London Drugs #LDBeauty preview, I knew they were automatically Lazy Girl Approved, and at less than $10 a pop, they're also true Drugstore Delights.

What it is: Cream blush and highlighter, shown here in 'Golden Pink' and 'Lustrous Gold', respectively. The cream blush is available in 4 universally flattering shades (pink, coral, light and dark berry), while the highlighter comes in 2 shades (champagne and gold).

Packaging-wise: User-friendly, chubby twist-up crayon dressed up in a gold chevron motif. +10 points for being adorably girly.

Performance-wise: The creamy formulas glide on and blend out easily and are buildable in intensity, imparting a shimmery golden glow that illuminates skin. (The more you blend them out, the subtler the shimmer.) These sticks are supposed to be long-wearing and waterproof, but even if that weren't the case, they're so portable you wouldn't mind toting them around for on-the-go touch-ups.

Lazy girls will like it because: Annabelle Perfect Cream Blush & Highlight Sticks work well over a full face of makeup, but you can also do a few swipes of each on a bare face. In just a few seconds you'll have dewy skin and a pretty flush, perfect for counteracting morning pallor or feeling more polished as you go from barre to brunch.
