I’m just not a big lipstick girl. If I try a punchy color, I often put it on with a light hand or end up wiping it off because I feel uncomfortable. I’m loving these new sheer lipsticks that feel amazing on, leave a nice pop of color and look flattering—perfect for going to meetings to picking up the kiddos at school. Here are some that I’m obsessing over right now and won’t want to wipe off:
CIRCA Beauty Color Treatment Tinted Lip Butter ($10) – Enriched with vitamins and oils, these are more on the balmy side, but have nice color that lasts. I’ll be stashing these in my travel bags all summer long.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Nudes Sheer Lip Gel ($30) – Infused with nourishing ingredients such as monoi butter, myrrh extract and vitamin E, these gel formula lipsticks have staying power and come in seven pretty shades for all skin tones. This hue will be in rotation all summer long.
Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($22) — These may be my favorite of the bunch. They give the right amount of color, hint of shine and plenty of moisture with nourishing shea butter, jojoba, olive and babassu oils, and come in a variety of colors from punchy pinks to soft nudes.
By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Nude ($36) – Full of hyaluronic acid to plump and smooth lips, this helps to fill in fine lines surrounding the lip area while leaving a soft glossy shine. The subtle shades work well for day or at night paired with a smoky eye.
Almay Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipstick ($6.99) – I really like how these hydrating lipsticks come in 12 colors (nude, pink, berry and red) that flatter fair to dark skin tones, containing nourishing jojoba, coconut oil and vitamin E. I’m into the berry for light skin tone right now, but I’m sure I’ll switch it up since they are at such a great price.
