MWAH! Kissy Kissy! SWAK! Ladies, it’s time to get those lips ready, gorgeous, protected and kissable for the summer. I have been testing products with SPF, hydration and vibrant hues and here are the ones that made my favs of summer list:
1) Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm ($24.50)
OMG! This is a ‘WOW’ product beauty junkies! This inspired lip product delivers the color of a lipstick, the transparency of a gloss and the soothing moisture of a lip balm. It has a clear hydrating gloss/balm around the outside and a gorgeous summer lovin’ hue in the core which gives your lips a healthy dose of color and shine. It is available in 4 bold limited edition summer shades: Crystal Coral (my fav & it color of the season), Crystal Pink, Crystal Red and Crystal Violet. I love the slightly fruity scent, the FAB color payoff and how it heals my dry lips.
This is a wonderfully long-lasting balm and hydrating gloss that gives your lips a hint of beautiful color. It protects your lips with an SPF 15 and comes in eight flattering colors. I love the the barely there Nourishing Nude color, how emollient it feels on my lips and that it only costs $6! FAB!
3) Wet ‘n Wild Juicy Lip Balm SPF 15 ($2.99)
This is a super-nourishing, lip-staining balm that moisturizes and offers a lovely sheer color. This gel balm is packed with lip-loving ingredients that protect and hydrate your lips and after the balm wears off, your lips are left with a sweet hint of tint. I love the automatic pencil dispenser that is so easy to use on the go, the slight hint of mint and the beautiful sheer color.
5) Glazewear Lipgloss ($6)
I adore AVON’s Glazewear lip glosses because they come in a variety of sparkly finishes and feel light and hydrating on your lips. AVON is just about to come out with the most gorgeous hues for summer that I am totally hooked on right now like a light coral called Peach Fizz, a more vibrant red/orange coral called Hawaiian Coral and a deeper pink called Hawaiian Mauve. And oh yeah they are only six bucks and rival a department store quality gloss!
6) OCC Lip Tar in Grandma ($14)
Lip Tar is an innovative hybrid of a highly pigmented lipstick crossed with a lip gloss that goes on moist, dries down to a satin finish and lasts for hours. Since Lip Tars are ultra-saturated with color, a little drop goes a very long way. Lip Tars contain hemp oil, peppermint oil and vitamin E oil which makes them hydrating too. I adore the coral-orange-red color of Grandma which is so fun and bright and gets tons of compliments whenever I wear it.
This is a gorgeous lanolin-free lipstick that contains a special blend of natural oils and vitamins that make your lips supple and moist. Tangelo is the epitome of the ‘it’ color of the season, a perfect tangerine orange coral hue that looks gorgeous on tan skin. I can’t get enough of this gorgeous lipstick!
