Sheer Lip Tints for the Summer
Sheer lip tints are a nice alternative to lipstick in the Summer months. They add a subtle amount of colour giving a fresh and natural look. Here are some of my favourites:
1. Vaseline Rosy Lip Therapy with Rose & Almond Oil - around £1.50 from Waitrose & Boots
A pink tinted version of Vaseline that gives a a nice sheer tint to the lips, use with lip liner for a more defined look
2. Eyeko Strawberry Fat Balm - £5.99 from Superdrug
Made by Eyeko, a cult Japanese beauty brand. A strawberry scented lip balm that adds a lovely pinky red colour to the lips. It has a nice texture, not too greasy and has good staying power. For evening, team it up with a clear or tinted gloss over the top.
3. Elizabeth Arden Sheer Tint in Blush - around £15 from department stores and online
Made with the famous Eight Hour formulation, this is really moisturising and has a slightly glossy finish to it. It comes in 4 different colours, Blush is a pretty pink colour that enhances your natural lip colour. Wear alone or use with a lip liner for more definition. I've been using this colour on many of my 2009 brides, it works well with MAC Subculture lip pencil.
4. Recently purchased this week, this one had to be added to the list, MAC 'Petting Pink' Lip Conditioner spf15 £10.28
It gives a very sheer wash of colour and a slight sheen to the lips. Perfect for anyone who doesn't like lipstick or lipgloss. It contains Almond Oil & Shea Butter so it will condition your lips and with the spf, it's perfect for summer holidays.
