Try it: Popsicle Lips

I know sherbet-colored hair is all the rage right now, but I’m hooked on popsicle-stained lips. My friends have a NY-based frozen treats company called People’s Pops and if I could get them to deliver to our offices, we could take care of our treats craving and our lipstick needs in one go — cherry plum, anyone? Alas, that’s not all that realistic. Here, my favorite cheater ways to get a pretty lip stain.

1. NARS Lipstick in Schiap: This is a Birchbox favorite because it is a happy Pepto hue that looks good on a range of skin tones. I like to apply and then blot to get a completely matte stain look.

2. Revlon Just Bitten in Passion: Basically a Sharpie for your mouth. It really does stain your lips so beware if you’re commitment-phobic. But it’s an affordable way to try the trend. (The pen does dry up fast, which makes sense since you’re paying drugstore prices.)

3. Tarte LipSurgence in Lusty: What is it with these lip gloss names? Either way, this orange-y red hue is smooth and bright, and gives you a pop of color that is somewhere between a stain and a gloss.

4. Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Riviera: This juicy gloss gives your lips a slip of sheer cherry shine. I love Jouer’s entire wardrobe of hues, but this is a current fave.
