It’s time to switch up your lip routine
As warmer weather sets in, heavy lip colors start to look overdone. However, you don’t need to overcompensate by skipping lip color altogether. Low maintenance tinted lip balms provide light color and SPF coverage to protect your lips from damaging sun rays.
Do your own sun-testing with these favorites:
- Mac Cosmetics Tinted Lip Conditioner gently tints your lips with a sheer colour that leaves a natural sheen. With ingredients like almond oil, shea butter, avocado extract, and wheat germ oil that condition your lips, you get a conditioning treatment along with SPF 15 coverage. For a limited time, Hello Kitty fans can add a Mac tinted lip conditioner to their collection featuring the Hello Kitty figure.
- Neutrogena® MoistureShine® tinted lip balm adds a silky hint of color on your lips. This non-sticky balm with SPF 20 goes a long way in preventing sun damage for sensitive lips. More like a lipgloss in a lip balm stick, you can easily tuck your MoistureShine tube in your jeans pocket. The Nude shade gives a hint of shimmering gold and is light enough to use for daytime.
- Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer conditions lips and gives a natural color to your face. With earth friendly ingredients like sunflower oil and peppermint oil, it’s not surprising that fans of Burt’s Bees call this shimmering lip balm addictive. The Champagne shade is a subtle color with a pearlized shine that looks great during the day. Or, you can try a deeper shade like Watermelon or Rhubarb for a hot, steamy evening look.
