Warm weather is finally here! And other than meaning a bronzed tan on your arms, a bikini in your bag, and a weekend getaway on your calendar, one thing rising temperatures means is a smaller everyday purse. Because, really, what’s worse than walking around with a giant bag over your shoulder that gives you sweat stains? Nothing. But just because you’re downsizing your carrying potential doesn’t mean you need to slack on your portable beauty routine--let’s be real, every girl needs a blush, lipstick, and concealer on her at all times for emergency touch ups! Luckily, you can get your lip color and cheek stain in one handy product, meaning there will still be room in your bag for another pack of gum, more festival wristbands, or that love note you’ve been meaning to drop in your crush’s backpack when he’s not looking. Check out our favorite lip and cheek two-in-ones in the slideshow and let us know your fave on Twitter and Facebook!
The newest multiple to the Nars family, the Matte Multiple is perfect for adding a little color to your summer look without getting too shiny. We tested it out in Siam, and can report that the orage-y red hue looks amazing on basically every skin color.
This product is the industry mainstay for lip and cheek two-in-ones, and for good reason. The rosy liquid goes on with a brush, making it easy to apply to lips and has a not-too-potent color so that it can be blended into cheeks for a subtle glow or layered on for a more Debbie-Harry-in-the-’70s look.
Hello, shiny vibrant colors! Not for the faint of heart, this glossy product is perfect for a constant fresh-out-the-pool (or fresh-off-the-beach) glisten.
If you’re looking for a potent color that goes on creamy and stays on all day, this is the product for you. Plus it comes in a wide array of shades so you will be sure to find the perfect one to go with your skin tone.
