loreal hip jelly balm.jpgThe L’Oreal HiP line of products are all very highly pigmented, rich colors (HIP does stand for high intensity pigments, after all), but the Jelly Balms are the opposite. They give a pretty sheer wash of color while adding fabulous moisture to a very delicate, easily dried out area of the face: the lips!

We all love a good lip conditioner, so one that also gives our lips a hint of color is a major plus. There’s no need for a mirror with these either, and with our on-the-go lifestyles, we couldn’t ask for anything more. Well… maybe that L’Oreal would add an SPF to it— then it would be perfect!  $9,

Now it’s time to give your lips a BOLD edge! Dark lips (even black!) are so in this season. No matter what color you choose, brick red to deep burgundy, make sure your eye makeup is minimal. Skip eyeliner and only use mascara on both upper and lower lashes to make your eyes pop. Be sure to always line your lips as well! Red lipcolors tend to bleed outside tha natural lip line, so choose a liner that is as close you the lipstick shade as possible or choose a neutral tone. Tip: If you’re unsure of wearing dark, rich tones on your lips, look for the word “sheer” when choosing a formula.
