Welcome to "Product Of The Week." Just like the name suggests, we'll spotlight one product every week that not only does what it promises to do, but that also upholds the green, natural approach to beauty and skin care we value so much. Trust us when we say you can trust our beauty editor, Allie White — in her time here, she's sampled upward of 400 different products. These are her favorites.
I love lip color. Sticks, glosses, cremes, stains ... you name it, I'll try it if it comes in any shade of red or pink (which, as you can imagine, means I've tried a lot). After a few years of experimenting with colors and formulas, I feel pretty confident that I've landed on my perfect shade of true red, and my hot pink game is on lock. I know which formula of tinted chapstick to use for different lip ailments, and despite the fact that no one can tell I'm wearing it, I've found the exact right "nude" to match my natural lip color.
I've got them all organized in a nifty contraption, standing like obedient, deeply-pigmented toy soldiers on top of my dresser. Sure, it's probably excessive to own upwards of 30 lip colors, but they are just so fun to play with and in my humble opinion, are the one thing I'll reach for when I really want to change up my look without too much effort.
