Add Some Summer Colour With Tinted Lip Balms
We are all about experimenting with vibrant lip colours for a trendy summer beauty look, but for many women brightly coloured lipstick can be a little scary. If you are not used to sporting a punchy pout or don’t think you can pull off that in-your-face colour, something in between a lipstick and lip balm might be more appropriate. Colour tinted chapsticks are the ultimate way to deliver that colour without it being so dramatic. Clinique’s Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour is a favourite amongst beauty fanatics and celebs like Kate Bosworth, but we’ve listed a couple other products like this one for some variety. Since these tinted lip balms have a more sheer coverage, you can also mix more than one shade to create your own unique colour. Whichever shade or brand you choose, they are sure to become a summer handbag essential!
Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour: This crayon-looking lip balm will leave your lips feeling extremely nourished while giving your pout natural looking lip colour with a hint of shine. The balm is not quite opaque so it will deliver the right amount of colour without being overbearing. Plus it is not sticky like a lip gloss so it will leave your lips feeling soft and smooth. The balm is made up of mango and shea butters for the ultimate hydration and shine. Although it looks like it needs sharpening, you simply have to swivel up the bottom to reveal more of the balm. The lip balm comes in 16 beautiful shades and sells for $16 dollar per shade. We personally love the Woppin’ Watermelon for a pretty baby pink hue.
Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint: These moisturizing lip tints glide on smoothly for long-lasting, natural colour. Their specially formulated Lipsurgence technology includes a blend of invigorating jojoba seed oil, peppermint oil, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E that are clinically proven to increase your lips moisture content and create a fuller looking lip. This lip tint is available in 7 fabulous colours and sells for $24. We know it is a little pricey but can assure you that it is well worth it!
Smashbox Limitless Lip Stain & Colour Seal Balm: While it is not a 2-in-1 stain and lip balm like the other two options, this Smashbox product offers a double sided marker and balm duo. First, you apply the lip stain for colour that will last up to 8 hours, and then you top it with the moisturizing balm for a silky smooth finish. For optimum results, allow the stain to dry completely before adding the lip balm in order to ensure that the colour will last and stay in place all night long. This product comes in 6 highly pigmented shades for just $23. Try it in Guava for a gorgeous bright coral.
