With summer sales in full swing, your virtual shopping carts are probably filled to the brim with warm weather essentials. But as you peruse those on-trend culottes and straw handbags, are you treating yourself to beauty essentials, too? While SPF and facial mists are obvious necessities, don’t forget to stock up on lip products. After all, your lips need some love this summer, too. If you’re not sure what to get, reach for a shiny gloss instead of a matte. This way, you won’t need an Instagram filter or the Kira Kira app to get your sparkle on.
We’ve compiled a handy list of shiny lip products for you to shop from the comfort of your air-conditioned apartment — or office, because honestly, who doesn’t do the occasional online shopping during work hours? Don’t worry. We won’t tell Sharon from Human Resources about this.
