Sometimes you want a little bit more than a chapstick but not quite a lipstick. You want moisture and shine, not shimmer and gloss. Sure, tinted chapstick is close, but it’s not exactly what we’re looking for when we want something that can take us from yogurt to fro-yo without a glance in the mirror. And, let’s be honest here, the appeal of pulling a lipstick out of our purses makes us feel like a glam grown-up in a way a tinted chapstick never can.
Here are 3 Sheet Lipsticks We Love… And Think You Should Try:
YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in Juicy Grapefruit ($30 at sephora.com) is a sheer, glossy balm with vitamin- and antioxidant-rich fruit extracts that leave your lips soft and sensual, with just a hint of sheer baby pink and golden shimmer. Plus, this YSL liptick has just about the most lux packaging of all time. Seriously.
Summer’s unexpected lipstick trend!
It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush in Je Ne Sais Quoi ($20 at beauty.com) is a gorgeously sheer, shimmer-free pink with rose undertones. And while the tint is perfect for any and all skintones and lip shades, it’s the anti-aging formula (rich in anti-aging antioxidants including Vitamins A, C, E, Acai, green tea and white tea) that really has us sold. Hey, no lip-lines here, ladies!
L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Balm in Pink Satin ($7.95 at drugstore.com) has been Alexis Wolfer’s go-to shade since she received the sample a couple of weeks ago. It’s perfectly sheer, a tad bit coral and goes with everything. Even better, it has SPF 15 and moisturizes for 8 hours!
