The Best Beauty Buys At HEB for Spring 2015: Lips
Last time, we found the best skincare products HEB had to offer for Spring 2015. Today, it’s all about luscious lip color.
There are some amazing options out there for Spring 2015 with bold color, super shiny gloss and creamy matte finishes. They’re all fun. Try any one of these gorgeous shades, or try all five. Each one is under $10!
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Last Lip Color, $9.98
This is a legit non-transferable lip color. Many lipcolors described as “24-hour wear” leave lips feeling cakey, and frankly, yucky. This product comes with two sides: the lip color, which applies like a gloss on one side, and a lightweight balm on the other. The color is fast drying, so it requires a quick hand. The balm leaves lips feeling soft and smooth and ensures the color (no matter how vibrant) has a natural sheen.
NYX Butter Lipstick, $5.99
This lipstick is soft, soft, soft. NYX Butter Lipstick has all the consistency of a balm without sacrificing color impact. One or two quick swipes will give you a sheer effect, or you can build the color with more applications. Mary Janes, the color shown, is a fun, bright cherry. Other colors in the line run the gamut from bolds to nudes.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, $5.99
A very novel approach to matte lip color is a cream. This particular lip color applies like a traditional gloss does – with a tube with wand applicator – and is easy to apply. It sets to a no-shine matte finish with a slight powdery feel. Lips feel stained and light. You could top it with a gloss or balm to add some moisture, but it might ruin the finish.
Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer, $7.97
A gloss doesn’t often give off such intense color, but this one definitely does. This is not a light, sheer wash of color; this is bold and bright. The consistency is lightweight and smooth, so it doesn’t leave lips with that sticky feeling many lip glosses have. Instead of a typical sponge wand, the applicator is a tiny brush that draws a precise line — which is important for a formula that is so pigmented. What’s more, the color selection is amazing.
Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer, $5.47
It’s always fun to find a relatively good-quality lippie in a value brand. Super bold and bright, the formula is very pigmented, but the consistency is thin and light. At under $6, Rimmel’s Show Off Lip Lacquer is a fabulous option for a trendy, vibrant shade that you will wear this season. If you are shopping for a staple lip color, invest in a classic shade from a prestige brand, but for a little fun, this is worth adding to your cart.
