We know you'll agree when we say that lipsticks are pretty much the number one makeup product in a woman's kikay kit. They make even the barest of faces feel dressed up and finished and are especially handy when you need an instant beauty boost. What we don't like, however, is how they sometimes feel heavy in the oppressive heat and how they get on everything—your glass, your boyfriend's shirt, your teeth, you name it!
This summer, then, save the lipstick for special occasions and formal events. Instead, opt for lighter alternatives that pack the same amount of punch, in the form of lip glosses, stains, and balms. One swipe is all you need for that effortlessly stunning look which, after all, is what summer beauty is all about.
