You'll Want to Wear This New $4 Color-Changing Lip Balm All Summer
Mood-changing beauty products are definitely having a major moment this Summer. First, Lipstick Queen launched blush and gloss versions of its celebrated shade-shifting Frog Prince lipstick. Then, MAC Cosmetics caused a total frenzy with the release of Tendertalk lip balms, a pout treatment that came in five varying hues that morphed with the wearer's body heat. However, while we're obsessed with these products, we were still craving a drugstore option . . . something we can easily find, regardless of where our season's travels take us, and that's superaffordable.
Maybelline has accommodated our demand in the best possible way. It's expanded its cult-favorite Baby Lips range to include Maybelline Baby Lips Glow Balm ($4), a pH color-transforming balm. If you're obsessed with the original Maybelline balm lineup, you know that these formulas are moisturizing and nongreasy and feel ultra-lightweight on your pucker. It's practically unscented (just a subdued vanilla that you'd have to strain to smell), too, making it ideal for those with sensitive noses.
Baby Lips Glow Balm is a lovely new member to the family. Slick it on, and you'll notice a subtle pink tint begin to develop. This rosy hue adjusts to your natural body chemistry, creating a shade that works well for your skin tone. It then leaves a stain behind that lasts for hours. This makes it the perfect low-maintenance Summer lip color. Stash it in your music-festival makeup bag or wear it to a friend's rehearsal dinner — it's pretty and versatile enough to work well for both. And at only $4, you can afford to have multiple tubes.
