The summer is heating up! This time of the year, I usually wear sheer or bronze lip color, but this year I am branching out to brighter hues!
Below are my current favorite beauty balm and lip products. The lip colors range from glossy pinks to matte reds! I love changing them up according to my mood and the occasion:
FACE Stockholm summer collection:
BB Natural Beauty Balm ($38 USD) — A multitasking cream in a compact to hydrate, prime, conceal and shield with Titanium and Zinc Oxides for UVA/UVB sun protection. Virtually melts into the skin for superior coverage that blends easily and diffuses imperfections. The result: a clean complexion that appears almost makeup-free. Wear alone for light coverage or use as a primer to boost the staying power of foundation.
Lip Liner ($17 USD) — Pencil it in! Smooth, writeable color in the precision of a pencil. Define, enhance and compliment lipstick or gloss.
Matte Lipstick ($22 USD) — Bold, bright and beautiful – matte lipstick offers dramatic color-saturated coverage with true staying power. From show-stopping reds to neutral nudes our modern matte formula provides highly pigmented, non-drying color for all skin tones.
What I think: I love the beauty balm. When I dipped my fingers into it, it was almost like a sheer gloss. But applied, it covers moderately and dries down to a dewy finish. The lip liner and matte lipstick create a long-lasting deep red lip.
