Cherry Stained Lips Are a Delicious Hit for Summer!
With the nude and shimmery pink lip colors so popular over the past few summers, it’s great to see that cherry or fruit punch colored lips are now in vogue. From lip glosses to lip stains and lipstick, cherry punch lips are at your fingertips. These glosses are great if you aren’t a full-on red lips type of person. A bit of stain or some neutral lip pencil with cherry red gloss over it looks great and can be somewhat understated if you want the cherry punch lips look. Here we’ll show you some great products, and some great companion cosmetics to complete your look.
1. VINCENT LONGO GELLI GLOSS
This brand new gloss stains your lips with a barely there color. Aria is an apricot shade that will look great over cherry red lipstick. The texture is light and feels great on your lips, while it truly looks like apricot jelly in the jar! You’ll love it!
2. GIRLACTIK BEAUTY LIP GLOSSES
Oh la la Red is a sheer rosy red lip gloss from the fantastic people at Girlactik Beauty. Wear this alone or over lip pencil. It also looks great over lipstick. The color was featured in People Magazine, so prepare to look like a star when you hit the town wearing it.
3. STILA SPF 20 SHINE LIP COLOR
I love the color called Chelsea and I am all over the fact that this contains SPF! You need to protect your lips year round, but especially in the summer months when we tend to be outside more often. This lip color is slightly shimmery and full of vitamins to keep your lips soft and smooth.
4. SMASHBOX LIP ENHANCING GLOSS
Desert Chic is a new limited edition gloss collection from Smashbox. Red Rock is a sheer golden red with an orange tone. Depending on your skin tone, you may look better in a more orange or blue-toned red lip color, so experiment and see what complements you.
5. AVON PRO-TO-GO LIPSTICK
This is the lipstick that Reese Witherspoon advertises and she wears it well. I’m partial to Fruit Punch, a peppy pink-red color that looks great on everyone. The cool case is like something out of a Bond movie too, which always wins points with me!
6. BECCA BEACH TINT
Watermelon Beach Tint is perfect to give your lips and cheeks a fruit punch look in a flash! Its creamy texture is kiss-proof and waterproof. You’ll adore the watermelon scent as it wafts off your lips up to your nose.
7. TARTE RISE & SHINE PLUMPING LIP STAIN
Cherry is a gel-based lip tint and matching gloss that will plump up the volume in your lips and keep them looking punchy all day and all night. Even when the lip gloss wears away, the stain remains so your lips are never naked. It’s a great product!
MAKEUP TO COMPLIMENT CHERRY LIPS
A red lip automatically calls attention to itself so keep your eyes and cheeks soft and subtle, allowing the lips to remain the focus. Use a very light hand with cheek color; it’s best to let it look like a barely-there flush. As for the eyes, a taupe, shimmery beige or tan, or softer butter-colored eye shadow will act like a light on your eyes without overshadowing the lips. Try brown eyeliner or skip eyeliner all together and brush only the top lashes with mascara. Many stain products can be used on both lips and cheeks, and as we all know, I can’t say enough about multitasking products! Demure eyes and cheeks truly compliment a bold, bright mouth. Try this look and be part of the cherry punch lips beauty trend!
