Cyber Monday is not playing today when it comes to beauty deals. Beauty expert Elizabeth Corrigan, founder of The Complete Package and Prestige Testing, tells Yahoo Life that Cyber Monday should be about “self-gifting in the beauty sector.” In other words, it's time to treat yourself. “This is one of the only days you have the ability to stock up on your beauty ‘must haves’ without paying full price,” she says. This is a great "shopportunity" to do just that. One little luxury you don't have to feel guilty about adding to cart today is this $5 universally flattering lip tint from Jessica Alba's Honest Beauty brand. "One swipe gives me the perfect wash of ultra-nourishing color," Alba said.
The brand itself is centered around Alba's values, so the ingredients are incredibly high quality, free of unnecessary chemicals and synthetic fragrances, vegan and cruelty-free. Super nourishing and moisturizing, this tinted lip balm features an impressive blend of dragon fruit, acai extracts and avocado oil to create "the best lip balm ever" and "the only thing that's helped" severely dry lips.
"I’ve been looking for this lip balm my whole entire adult life! I’m now in my late fifties and I need to wear a lip balm that doesn’t bleed into the tiny lip wrinkles," one five-star reviewer proclaimed. "This balm is seriously the best combination of constancy, coverage and the best color I’ve ever found!"
The most popular colors are on sale today for Cyber Monday, all of which are universally flattering and will look amazing on light and dark skin tones alike. You can even get two of them, in shades Plum Drop and Summer Melon, for just $11. "I got the color Plum Drop and could tell it will look good on everyone. Like the color Black Honey from Clinique," another shopper shared. "It leaves your lips so juicy with a perfect tint of color. The tint stays on your lips long after use. I don't have to wear lipstick everyday anymore."
If you aren't a big fan of lipstick, the White Nectarine shade is a transparent version. You can also think of the tinted shades as more of a Chapstick-style balm that'll allow you to dip a toe into the lip color pool. It gives a soft pop of color to amplify the look of your natural lips. "For years, I've been trying to find a Chapstick that will heal my dry lips, but still have a complimentary color. I've tried so many and most will smell bad and make my lips dry," a five-star reviewer explained. "This is the best lip moisturizer I've come across that gives me the best color plus giving me the best moisturizer all day long."
If you are a big fan of lipstick, you'll be delighted to discover that these lippies are buildable, so you can easily swipe on additional layers to pump up the glam for a more pigmented pout. It gives a break to lips that become chapped from overuse of drying liquid lipsticks and stains, too. "I tend to use lip stains that leave my lips thirsty," a satisfied customer said. "This is perfect for that natural, moisturized look. It's not sticky or too glossy. I love it."
