Have you ever wanted to dip your toe into the orange lipstick pond but always somehow chicken out? These sheer lipsticks will suit you well, my friend. Whether you want to go slow with a new color, or give your old favorite lipsticks a new spin by layering these on top, you may want to give Colour Pop’s new Sheer Lippie Stix a try.
Comfortable on the lips. Considering how affordable these are, I was almost certain they’d be sticky or waxy or just gross. Not the case. These feel really light and comfy on the lips, making them great for day time, which leads me to my next point…
Versatile. These are great because they can be worn alone for day time or with lip liner for night time. You can also layer these over lipstick. For example, if you have a nude lipstick that’s a little too nude, you can throw Crunch or Kiddo on top to warm things up. I would definitely put a coat of Tiger over my MAC Rebel lipstick (a top 5 favorite) to give it a different finish.
Affordable. These are only $5 (available here). Even if you hate them, you can give them to your daughter/niece/stepfather and let them do as they please with ’em. They’re perform similarly to the Revlon Color Burst Balms (review here), which I love, but even less expensive.

Share this with someone who can’t leave the house without lip color whether they’re going to church or picking their child up from tuba practice, someone who’s afraid of full-on color, or someone who refuses to spend more than $5 on lipstick! Check back tomorrow for a reveal of what I got in my Allure Beauty Box this month (it’s a good one)!
All The Best,
P.S. Sorry some of the images of me are a little blurry (like the featured image which looks like it’s 2010 and I just discovered how to use photo editing apps on my iPhone 3). I forgot to turn off image stabilization on my camera lens and since the camera was already on a tripod, my poor camera got confused. Basically, image stabilization backfires when the camera’s on a tripod. Very nice, Julia. High five.
