The “I Just Ate A Popsicle” Lip Colors… Minus Eating The Popsicle

Popsicle lips... my new favorite thing
Popsicle lips... my new favorite thing

I do love popsicles, especially during the spring/summer, but sometimes a girl just wants a blotted popsicle lip without having to actually eat one. These lip colors give you that look, and they are my current favorite go to’s that live at the bottom of my purse.

 The I Just Ate A Popsicle Lip Colors… Minus Eating The Popsicle

The lipstick that really started the popsicle lip for me was Glossier’s Generation G Lipstick in Crush. It’s the most beautiful sheer pinky raspberry shade that gives color without looking overdone. The other one I have is Jam, which is deeper, and looks scary in the tube, but it’s very sheer so don’t let the tube fool you. Jam is a berry shade that is my new favorite out of the two. These lipsticks are matte so they can be a bit drying, especially if you apply a few layers to build up the opacity, but I always apply my Complex Beauty Pout Protector Lip Mask as I’m doing my makeup, let it sink in then wipe off the excess and apply these on top so they’re not drying. (p.s. you can shop through my Glossier page here and first timers get 20% off their entire order!)

Something that also doubles as a cheek tint is the Becca Beach Tint in Raspberry. As the name suggests, it gives a raspberry stain to the lips (and also the cheeks). Again, this one can be a bit drying so I do the same lip balm trick with the Complex Beauty Pout Protector. Another lip and cheek (and eye!) tint that I’ve been loving is from Noto BotanicsThey’re a cool new brand that have a lot of great looking products, and I was kindly sent the Multi-Benne Tint*. It gives the lips a super natural popsicle flush so it’s a favorite of mine especially on no makeup days.

Some newer additions to my collection are all from ColourPop, and I got them because I thought they would give me a popsicle lip, and they sure do. I picked up 3 Ultra Blotted Lipsticks in Split, Bit-O-Sunnyand SlideSlide is a pinky natural shade, Bit-O-Sunny is a bright cherry red with fuchsia, and Split is a berry. Their Blotted Lipstick in Lexi, a cool toned red, and Bee’s Knees, a fuchsia, also give the lips a popsicle vibe. Their blotted lips remind me of Glossier’s Generation G, but more pigmented and drier so they don’t glide on as nicely, but I do still love them.

  • My lips are so thin I never achieve that look, not even with a real popsicle. It is a pretty one for summer though.

  • Ooh, these all look so pretty for summer!

    xo, Liz

  • I can’t warm up to sheer-isa shades for my lips, I want full blown and very pigmented lipsticks. LOL! I think it’s because I wear very minimal makeup on the rest of my face and I need my lips to be the centre of attention.

    • Haha I don’t blame you. A natural look with a bold lip is always pretty!

  • All of these colours look gorgeous! May have to pick some of these up!xx

  • These seem like the perfect shades for summer time…or I wouldn’t mind just constantly eating an ice lolly either.

  • Oh, I do love lipsticks or lip tints which give that effect. I don’t often wear them because I also find them to be more drying than full on opaque lipsticks (which sounds strange), but I’m definitely tempted by the Becca Beach Tint in the shade Raspberry, just because I really love the shade! Lovely post :)

    • I love Becca Raspberry! It’s so weird how these sheer finishes can be drying lol

  • Isn’t it strange that they can be drying? You would imagine it to be different! If I want just a sheer wash of colour, I’ll use one of the Korres lip balms xx

    • Very very strange lol! I used to have one of those. Need to get another :)

  • Great post! The Becca tints sound lovely! x

  • I really want to try the Generation Gs, and the Noto lip tint looks so pretty! I’ve ordered one of the Colourpop Ultra Blotted Lips and I’m really curious about them. I hope I like the formula!

  • Love the title of this post, made me giggle and made me realise that this is the shade that I tend to go for! x

  • Okay, I love this post theme! It’s totally the dream to look like you just ate a popsicle. The ColourPop Ultra Blotted Lips are really intriguing, especially considering the great price tag. I’m definitely getting a Gen G on my next order, but I’m still trying to plan that out lol.

  • My kind of lip colour! The perks of a good lipstick in my eyes is one you don’t need to reapply because it leaves a stain.

    Apparently Glossier is going to launch in the UK some time this year! You have seriously added a large number of Glossier products to my wishlist already!

    • I agree! I love it when lipsticks leave stains. They are, and I’m so excited for you guys to try everything!!

  • These look gorgeous!!

  • Love the title of this! I am loving stained-lips for the summer because you don’t have to worry about reapplying them! I tried the Becca one but didn’t get along with it too much so I’ll definitely have to give the Glossier and Colourpop ones a go!
