Legendary Lip Tints
By Marissa Hicken |
Anyone who's familiar with the streets of downtown Manhattan, knows the diversity and uniqueness that's found in Greenwich Village. All walks of life come together to form this vibrant neighborhood and certain landmarks help give The Village its character as a low-key relief from the hustle and bustle found nearby. C.O. Bigelow is one of them.
C.O. Bigelow is the oldest apothecary in America and their flagship store in Greenwich Village is still a hotspot with regular celebrity customers like Liv Tyler and Christina Ricci. If you're ever in New York, I highly recommend C.O. Bigelow for literally all of your beauty needs, but no matter where you are in the country, you can have a slice of my favorite part of the C.O. Bigelow pie: the lip collection.
I have so many of these lip glosses and balms, I always find them in pockets of my jackets and in every handbag I own. There are tons of different versions: ranging in flavors, colors, formulas, etc., but their latest collection of Mentha Lip Tints is what I want to talk about.
These peppermint-y glosses give a quick cool to your lips, but better yet, freshen your breath. The sheer gloss has a pearlescent tint of color that looks beautiful on any skin tone and leaves your lips feeling smooth and refreshed. With just the right amount of color, stickiness and mint, you'll want one for every coat and purse, too. If you don't have a C.O. Bigelow near you, don't worry-you can also pick them up at Bath & Body Works.
