Coral, pink, red and tangerine hues are blossoming for spring, and these two brands with creamy, hydrating lip color are so fresh, you’ll want to slap them. Oooh!
Besame, which means “kiss me” in Spanish, is a downright voluptuous product line, and reminiscent of 1940s Hollywood with its rich pigments in unique vintage tins, sticks and pots. The luminous Besame Sweetheart Balm in Tangerine, Cherry, Peach and Sweet Rose is fortified with vitamins C and E and adds a pop of color to your lighter spring look. It’s also super emollient, with aloe leaf extract, shea butter, jojoba and rosa canina extract to smooth out your smile. Feast your eyes on the dazzling lipstick lineup hues at http://www.BesameCosmetics.com; you’ll thank us.
The Clark’s Botanicals Ultra Rich Lip Tints come in four collagen-boosting, lip-plumping, deeply hydrating, luscious tints: Alexandra Rose, Carlotta Pink, Madge Mauve and Rachel Red, each named after a woman who provided inspiration for founder Francesco Clark. Madonna inspired the saucy “Madge” hue. Flower extracts, calendula, vanilla, sweet almond oil, marine collagen and other lip-softening ingredients smooth the way for a swath of kissable color. Petrolatum and paraben-free, these can be scored at http://www.clarksbotanicals.com.
Choose your favorite color palette and be prepared for spring flattery.
