Popsicle Fashion? Read On!
That's right fashionista's! Popsicles have inspired the latest lip trend, "Popsicle stained lips."
Really, its just a spin on the lip stain, but with a glossy finish!
Popsicle stained lips come from juicy tinted lip glosses and stains, and give a POP of color (of course!) that make you look like you just finished a juicy Popsicle on a hot day!
So, what kinds of products will give you this POP trend?
For a true 'stained' lip (with no glossy finish) try Josie Maran's Lip and cheek stain!
The pointed side for contouring lips, and the flat side for blending the stain into cheeks! It gives you an incredibly long-wearing summertime fruity glow! $20 at Sephora
A glossy favorite of mine is Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy Lip Balm in "Succulent Pomegranate" $30 at Bloomingdales, Nordstroms or Sephora.com
These SHEER lip colors give a POP of color in berry shades with a great shine, so they look and feel like a stained lip (but there are no stain properties in this product)
For lipstick lovers, try Estee Lauder's Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in "Melon Shimmer" $24
For the natural girl (or younger ages) try Clinique's Chubby Stick in any of the amazing juicy and sheer colors (as the jello-inspired advertisement suggests)
Try "Whoppin Watermelon" for $19, its a great summertime shade! Don't be fooled by the bright packaging, the colors are VERY sheer and give a natural tint!
