When It Comes To Lipstick, Is Sheer the New Opaque?


Like clockwork, we swap out our heavier foundation for CC cream and our dark jeans for sundresses the moment the temperatures rise above 60 degress. But before you drop the opaque lipstick for a tinted lip balm, consider a new alternative that has us rethinking our beauty routines. 

Enter sheer lipsticks. These lightweight lip colors popping up everywhere right now, which means more options when it comes to updating your summer look.

We love them because they give just a touch of color for the day and they’re totally buildable for when we want something more eye-catching in the evening. Many of these new formulas also incredibly long-lasting and are less prone to feathering when compared to more opaque alternatives. 

Our current favorite has to be Bobbi Brown’s Sheer Lip Color Collection thanks to its ultra-hydrating formula (goodbye chapped lips!) and wide range of bright and subtle colors. We’re also big fans of By Terry’s By Terry’s Hyaluranic Sheer Rouge, which moisturizes, protects, and fills in lipstick-cracking fine lines. Now there’s only one question—which shade do we pick?
