Summer has arrived, but can your lipstick stand up to the heat? Beyond my other summer beach bag favorites (La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra-Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 60 to protect my skin, and a Nalgene water bottle filled with ice water to stay hydrated) I don't go anywhere without this inexpensive, shea butter-infused miracle product: Gotta Glow Lip Tint from e.l.f. is a ray of bubble-pink sunshine that's here to save even the sweatiest, stickiest day. Basically, you need it in your makeup bag ASAP.
Gotta Glow Lip Tint in Perfect Pink is my go-to summer lipstick for a number of reasons. First, it acts just as much like a lipstick as it does a balm, so it keeps lips smooth and moisturized while also offering bright color that actually stays put. Second, it’s called a "tint" for a reason — after you apply it once or twice, it functions as a lip stain, which means I don’t need to reapply all day long (even in extreme heat). Third, because I'm a kid at heart and appreciate these things, the lipstick appears to be light and sheer in the tube, but once it touches my lips, it turns bright pink. Magic!
For me, e.l.f. is the MVP of drugstore beauty: The brand is wallet-friendly, vegan, and cruelty-free. It's also easy to find at CVS, Walmart, or Target, so leaving a tube of Gotta Glow in the office bathroom never to be seen again is not necessarily the end of the world. If you’re extremely lucky and hit the beauty lottery, you might even find this lip tint at half-price in Marshalls’ makeup aisles (this happened to me exactly once, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I bought several).
Gotta Glow Lip Tint comes in three colors: Perfect Pink, Perfect Berry (purple), and Perfect Peach (orange), so you’re bound to find a color that suits you.
