Let’s be clear: We love a highly pigmented, long-wear lipstick. But for those casual summer evenings (say, after a day at the beach), a dewy, moisturized lip with just a kiss of colour is all you really need. Lip oils are the new iteration of the gloss — they give all of the shine with none of the stick. Plus, you get the nourishing benefits of oil — some formulas contain up to six varieties. They come in a range of shades and most have a fruity scent to match. We recommend tossing one in your makeup kit, your work tote and your beach bag.
Lancôme Juicy Shaker
Remeber Lancôme's Juicy Tubes from the early 2000s? This is the 2016 version of those sticky glosses. Shake the bottle to mix the oils — peach kernel, sweet almond, cranberry and musk rose — and the pigment together, then apply it with the sponge cushion applicator for a sheer tint that's all shine, no stick. Available in 14 shades. $28, Sephora.
