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 Botanics. They’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-Sunny, and Slide. Slide 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.
