Juicy Fruit: The Grapefruit Lipstick Review
Published Jun 27, 2014
Hot enough for you? If you could use a mouth-full of cool citrus right about now, we’re serving it up fresh in the form of grapefruit-hued lipsticks: luscious ruby red-pinks with a hint of orange tint. Get your fix with these six picks.
Sleeks Cream Lip Paint in #90 | $10 | shop it
A tube of cake-scented, non-sticky gloss with an easy-to-wear sheer finish. The shade errs on the pink side of orange, perfect for when you want a hint of coral. There’s just the right amount of pigment—you’ll want one in every color!
Lip Butter in Pomegranate | $12 | shop it
We suggest applying this tinted balm with a brush, or even better, dabbing it on with a finger. It’s light, but gives a surprising pop of ruby grapefruit that’s delicate enough to flatter anyone. The subtle natural fruit flavor is a yummy added bonus.
Cherry Oil Lip Gloss in #22 Golden Pink | $17 | shop it
So not the gloss of your teenage years. The shimmering salmon shade is backed with cherry oil, for a light, pleasant scent—and there’s a tinge of gold dust that illuminates and warms up the color.
La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream in Marshmallow Bunny | $22 | shop it
A candy-inspired pastel that works with your skin tone (any skin tone!), not against it, thanks to the neutralizing yellow undertones. A glossy shimmer keeps it looking fresh for hours, which makes it a great option for everyday looks.
Tinted Lip Conditioner in Shell Shock | $26 | shop it
Quite possibly the smoothest, silkiest lipstick we stock at Beautylish. The shade is impossibly ideal for summer—think creamsicle with a bit of pink—and the formula hydrates lips all day.
Lip2Cheek in Smile | $36 | shop it
This dewy lippie looks ripe and juicy in the pot, but its higher in pigment than you might expect. And if you’re looking to streamline your makeup bag, you’ll love it—the warm hue really ups the ante on lips and cheeks.
