Maybe I’m not drinking enough water, but for some reason this summer I’ve been shying away from matte lipstick because I want my lips to be creamy and moisturized. Last week I shared a bright glossy lip that is perfect for glamming it up, but for everyday wear, Becca Cosmetics recently released a perfect line of moisturizing lip colors in eight nude shades!
Now, I am a HUGE fan of Becca Cosmetics, because their products are paraben free AND they always have a wide array of shades for different skin tones. I regularly wear the Aqua Luminous Foundation (in Warm Honey), and my go to highlight kit is the BECCA X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette. So when they launched their new Lush Lip Colour Balm, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!
The Lush Lip Colour Balm comes in 8 shades, ranging from a peachy beige to a sophisticated plum, all designed to match your natural lip color. The balms apply sheer but have buildable coverage, and are infused with jojoba oil to keep lips nourished, hydrated, and kissable throughout the day. Plus they all have yummy names! My favorites are Chai Creme, which looks like nothing on my lips (aka my exact lip color), Milk Chocolate, which is a bit more brown, and Cherry Ganache, for a soft burgundy. I’ve also played around with applying these first as a lip balm, and then applying brighter and more matte colors around the outside of my lips for a softer ombre look. Here’s a video of how the colors look on my lips!
Since I attended the Lush Lip launch party in NYC, I actually ended up with two sets of the Lush Lip Colour Balm, so I’d like to gift one to a lucky reader ! To enter, just follow the instructions below – good luck!
