blooming lips


i’m fresh off the plane from l.a. and i have never felt more pale. i clung to my bronzer for dear life over the last five days and i also took refuge in two lip products because they give gorgeous color that instantly brightens and flatters.

the first is a custom pink (“my pink”) from clarins ($23) in their new instant light lip balm perfector. it’s melty and smooth, not too sheer and ultra hydrating so it helps my lips stay comfortable during this never-ending transition into spring. for a self-adjusting pink, it’s really beautiful (falling somewhere between a bubblegum and a raspberry, depending on the day) and just the right amount of pop without being too bright.

the other balm, from janeĀ iredale ($25) is more of a fiery coral, called forever peach, and it brings a vinyl look to lips – similar to the photo above. it goes on like a gel, feels incredible and gives a warmer, more tropical vibe to my beauty routine, especially when paired with a touch of bronze. i’ve been using it interchangeably with the clarins, depending on my outfit and mood.

each balm is minimal, easy, effortless – just what my everyday makeup look was calling for in california, and even more necessary now that i’m back on the east coast.

are you into these color changing balms?
