One thing is loud and clear when looking at images of the Spring 2013 runway shows—when it comes to lips this season, a hint of tint is all you need. A lightly veiled pout was seen at Carolina Herrera, Derek Lam and Diane von Furstenberg. And while “look at me” lashes and bold brows took center stage, the lips remained subtle—the best supporting actress in a dramatic look.
Here to offer up barely-there coverage are two new and noteworthy lip products that are perfect for the spring trend:
bareMinerals Remix Loud & Clear Lip Sheer ($15) magnifies and plumps up lips with a translucent splash of soft color and shine. It’s a sheer gel with the added benefits of shea butter and jojoba seed oil, so not only are your lips lightly tinted, they are totally moisturized without that goopy lip gloss feel. It comes in three lucid shades: Tangerine Trance, Berry Remix and Amped Pink.
For those looking for less shine, Estée Lauder Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipstick in Nude ($25) is a lightweight, creamy color that gives a neutral, barely there look (though the collection has other colors that can up the ante too). It’s an understated way to accentuate the lips and stay completely on trend with matte coverage.
