These creamy, lightweight lippies feel like a mad makeup scientist’s 👩🔬 creative combo of a balm and a lipstick, and they come in natural lip tones.
I’ve been so inspired lately by “there but not obviously there” makeup and “makeup for no-makeup makeup lovers…”
I don’t know if any of that made any sense at all, ha ha! 😂 I haven’t had enough coffee ☕ yet, but y’all know what I’m talking about. I’m talking about noticeable products with decent coverage that aren’t necessarily pedal-to-the-metal intense.
The $18 Fleshy Lips Lipsticks by Flesh fit purr-fectly into that lane. They’re lightweight and glossy medium-coverage lippies a la Clinique’s iconic Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, only slightly more intense, and they’re available in lots of your-lips-but-better shades.
They’re the kind of sheer-ish lipsticks you’d wear with mascara, tinted moisturizer and cream blush, and the type of tube you stick in your pocket when you’re going to lunch and shopping with a girlfriend.
My lip freckles peek through when I’m wearing them, but the tint is still noticeable. If you’re wearing one and bump into a buddy who knows a thing or two about makeup, he or she might ask, “Hey, what’s that YLBB lipstick?”
OK, but what’s the scent situation, you may be wondering? Well, it’s a whole lotta nothing! — because they aren’t scented or flavored.
And the formula feels great on my dry lips, BTW. I normally reapply them every few hours.
