I’ll have to admit, although I buy lip gloss like it’s nobody’s business, I’m a little bit color-shy. I don’t mean to be — I just have a hard time straying from my comfort zone, which tends to be more on the neutral or soft pink side. Lame, I know. But one lip color I’m tempted to try out for the summer is punch. Sweet and bright like sherbet, yet not quite as “look at me” as fire engine red, punchy lips are refreshing without being too out there, and vary to suit any skin tone, from bright pomegranate to more purple-pink hues. Plus, it looks great with a summer tan!
Not afraid to go all out? Choose a matte lipstick in a punchy shade like Palladio BECHIC lipstick in Tropical Punch, a bright coral shade. If you’re more color-shy, opt for a sheer gloss that still boasts a bright tint without looking quite so bold. Personally I’m a big fan of Stila Lip Glaze in Fruit Punch — it’s the perfect pinky-punch tone with plenty of shine. Tarte’s Double Dose Gloss in Pomegranate Punch is also fun and summery with its sheer tone and sparkle. No matter what kind of formula you choose, whether matte or sheer or sparkly, it’s easy to find a punchy shade you can pull off without looking too loud!
