Summer is the time for outdoor fun, dresses, sandals, and embracing that sun-kissed glow (just make sure you don’t skip out on sunscreen). And nothing goes better with your radiant skin than some glossy lips and a big, beautiful smile. Lip gloss is always in, no matter if it’s spring, summer, fall, or winter. It gives your lips added shine and moisture that make them look ageless and fuller!
But you and I are not the only ones who like to wear lip gloss and lipstick. Your teenage daughter probably does as well (I know mine does). So to make both of your lips look their best this summer, I recommend the Lip Sheer and Lip Gloss from Beautycounter. They are safe for you and your teenager, and come in a variety of shades that can be worn at your next meeting with a client, brunch with your family, happy hour with your best friend, or dinner with your special someone.
Beautycounter’s Lip Sheer is silky-smooth and lasts for hours. It’s super lightweight yet ultra-moisturizing. The lip sheer is made with plant-based ingredients such as jojoba esters, and has a natural hint of vanilla from the plant planifolia. Rest assured that there are no synthetic fragrances or heavy metals in these lip sheers—safe for you and your daughter.
With over nine different colours to choose from, you’ll be able to find the right hue to compliment your skin tone. I’m obsessed with Currant, Plum and Twig, and my daughter loves Currant, Plum and Raisin.
Beautycounter’s Lip Gloss goes on smoothly and moisturizes your lips without making them feel sticky or goopy. These glosses are available in seven different colors, so you can find the right shade to match your daytime or nighttime makeup routine! My favorite colors are Opal, Buff and Peony. I find my daughter always asking me to order more of the Coral, Buff and Sienna. These shades are light enough and mom-approved so she can wear them to school!
These lip glosses are not made with butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), so they are safe for you and your daughter. BHT is toluene-based ingredient used as a preservative and fragrance, shown to have tumor promotion effects, can harm your organs, and possibly cause depigmentation.
You can either pair the lip sheer and lip gloss together, for a long-lasting lip color with added shine; or you can wear them individually for a simple and fresh look. With so many colors to choose from, you can mix and match the sheers and glosses together for a new look every day of the week!
