The perfect lip tint for summer
T-minus 9 days until St. Maarten, and the clothes- and product-pulling has begun. (TBH, I started a vacation rod in my closets months ago—and have been adding to it ever since.) I have sunscreens, post-sun lotions, hair potions and a nice stash of skincare samples, but I hadn’t started thinking about my makeup until Wander Beauty’s Beach Balm in “Sangria” came across my desk. And thanks to this beauty, I don’t have to ponder much more.
This sheer, super-moisturizing balm has a berry tint, but I’d describe it more as your lip color but better. Designed to complement all skin tones, it deepens my natural lip hue and adds a glossy sheen (thanks to micro-fine pearl pigments) that looks both easy-breezy and polished at the same time. Formulated with anti-aging prickly pear extract, anti-inflammatory chamomile, moisturizing shea butter and antioxidant vitamins C and E, it’s essentially an all-in-one product that soothes and protects this delicate area while making you look pretty.
BTW, it’s amazing on the cheeks, too—which means there’s one less product I don’t have to bring on my trip. I’m thinking bronzy skin, gold-washed lids, mascara (obviously) and a swipe of this stick on my lips and cheeks. Vacation makeup, done. I wonder if I have a small enough cosmetic bag…
