Summer is a time when many of us swap some of our favorite cosmetics for lighter options. There is no doubt I’m a lipstick aficionado but even I opt for a quick swipe of a gloss on hot summer days. Light and moisturizing, tinted lip gloss adds a sheer wash of color and lots of shine. The sun amplifies the luster quotient, highlighting your lips in way that is still soft and subtle. It’s easy to apply on the go making it the perfect item to throw in your bag before hitting the beach, park, picnic, or farmer’s market. In my humble opinion, lip gloss is definitely not a beauty product that you need to spend a lot of money on. I prefer to try on lipsticks before purchasing them to be certain they will work with my skin tone. Gloss is much more forgiving because it’s translucent and will blend with your natural lip color. So, pop into your favorite drugstore and pick up one of these fantastic budget-friendly options.

I love color so this line of pigmented lip colors is right up my alley. Shown here in Captivating Coral, this sweet gloss with honey nectar is a softer way to rock the orange trend.Found on Drugstore $7.79
Credit where credit is due: I love this lip gloss in Red Sensation (shown here). For $2, you get awesome long-wearing color with sparkly shine. So much shimmer, in fact, that this pick is great for nighttime. Found at Drugstore $1.99
