Okay, where’ve the Becca Glossy Lip Tints ($23) been all my life? Seriously, did you know about these? I guess they’ve been around for years, covertly gliding under my radar with their non-sticky, long-lasting and oh-so-shiny texture, and I’ve been woefully out of the loop.
Wet like juicy jelly, they should be perfect on days when all I want is a sheer (but not too sheer) wash of color.
This week I tried three of the 25 shades on for size…
Becca Glossy Lip Tints from left to right: Frappe (a sheer orange), Colada (a sheer, shimmery golden pink) and Cherry Bomb (a sheer red)

You know the MAC Lip Gelees (LOVE THOSE!)? I think these have a similarly wet finish and that same cushiony feel on the lips.
They might be a tad drying (unflavored but smell faintly of watermelon) compared to the Lip Gelees, but that’s easy to enough remedy with the help of a moisturizing balm or lipstick worn underneath.
If your kisser, like mine, craves non-sticky glosses with sheer color and dazzling shine, you just might like these a lot. Available at Pure Beauty stores and online beccacosmetics.com. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B+/A-
What are you up to tonight? I’m over here letting my mind rot watching the new Real World. It’s the same thing over and over, isn’t it? But I can’t resist… Add young’ns, booze and boobs, rinse and repeat. The formula hasn’t changed in years, le sigh.
