This Tinted Lip Balm Is Made from Tomatoes
At any given time, I have at least five lip products in my purse, several more strewed on my desk, and an unspeakable number stashed at my apartment. It’s a big deal when one constantly rotates between all three spots — AKA it cannot be out of my reach — but it’s an even bigger deal when it is affordable, long-lasting, and made from tomatoes. Wait, what?
SKINFOOD Tomato Jelly Tint Lip ($9) is a hydrating, tinted lipstick that feels like a balm, looks like a gloss, and leaves behind a subtle wash of color like a stain. Here’s why I am obsessed AF with a tint made from tomato oil.
It creates the perfect lip stain. One of my fave things is that after the moisturizing balm fades away, it leaves behind a rosy pop of color that lasts for hours. You won’t experience that pesky uneven ring of product around your lips (like when lipstick fades, ew). Instead, you get a gorgeous stain that stays in place all day long.
You don’t need a mirror. Let’s hear it for lippies that you can apply on-the-go! While I totally appreciate a bold color that requires careful application, a quick swipe of a punchy color while you’re running around is effortless and essential.
It looks good on everyone. Since this is with me everywhere I go, I am always testing it out on my friends. The hue is somewhere between a light cherry red and a pink raspberry — and I have yet to find someone that doesn’t love the color. It’s not too dark, not too light, and works with every skin tone imaginable.
Your lips will feel silky smooth. Star ingredient tomato oil is full of antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids, which serve up serious anti-aging benefits that keep your lips in tip-top shape.
