|Sheer lip tint Exhibit A|
Remember how great Lipsmackers were when we were 12? Your lips could smell– and taste!– like Dr. Pepper, or cotton candy, or some other saccharine flavor, and you felt sort of cool because it was as close to lipstick you were going to get (or, at least as close as I was getting). Well, meet the adult version: Soap & Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick. The crayon-like gloss comes in three shades, and I am fully obsessed with Plum Jam, which gives a shiny, sheer berry tint and smells like vanilla — but without any sort of weird taste. Not sure I noticed any plumping effect, but the formula is super-moisturizing and really stays put. If you’re looking for a great spring/summer neutral, well here she is.
While we’re on the topic of perfect-for-spring sheer lippies, it feels only right to mention Clark’s Botanicals Ultra Rich Lip Tints. These super-moisturizing glosses come in 8 shades (I am loving the pink tinge of Alexandra Rose) and are all-natural, thanks to the likes of almond oil, aloe vera extract, and shea butter. Get one for each of your bags and call it a day.
