What’s not to love about a new lipstick? A new hue of lip color puts a smile on any girlie girl’s face. But what puts an even bigger grin on this Spa Girl’s face is a lipstick that’s packed with benefits.
The new Skinn Cosmetics Glossticks by makeup artist, beauty innovator and author Dimitri James are not your typical lipsticks. I suppose that why they got the name “Glosssticks.” They have the sheen of a lip gloss minus the heavy, sticky feel and the color of a lipstick without the waxy, stay-inside-the-lines application.
This is the kind of lipstick you can put on without a mirror and not wonder if it’s all over your face, and that’s a plus for us girls on the go.
What’s more is the Glossticks have an SPF and are packed with quenching emollients like sunflower seed oil and shea butter. Glossticks are petrochemical free and come in three shades: Naked, Tender and Petal — all of which are non-bleeding with subtle hints of pure color that make them totally wearable for any skin tone. Plus, they taste good (Do I detect a bit of chocolate? Could be my hormones.)
Glossticks are a true, practical innovation in the world of lip color. Now, if I could just find which purse is hiding my latest beauty find, I’d be in business.
Skinn Cosmetics Glossticks are $12.50 each and can be purchased at skinn.com.
