Keep it Sheer: Very Wearable Lip Color

I’m a big lipstick fan. I love rich, bold colors no matter what time of year it is.

And after wearing lipstick nearly every day for the past few years, I thought it was time to venture down another path.

I wanted something to wear that was a little bit more sheer, but offered some color. Plain lip balm isn’t enough for my pale skin.

So I started looking around, and found a multitude of sheer lip balms that offer hydration as well as a subtle wash of color. I even found that a lot of them are layer-able if you love the shade and ever want something a bit more opaque.

If you are an “I wear lipstick everyday” kind of gal like me, I’d challenge you to give a sheer lip balm a shot. It’s nice for a casual day, or just for a change up from the usual.

    This stain can be used on lips or cheeks! On lips, it stains them a pretty mango color without leaving any heavy "lipstick" feeling behind.

    Not only is this a really hydrating balm, but the product itself is very cool too. The formula reacts to the chemistry of your lips to turn the perfectly unique shade of subtle pink.
