Beauty Buys: Afterglow Lip Balm

I have so many different lipsticks, most of which end up sitting in the drawer of my vanity the vast majority of the time. I like having them for when an outfit calls for just the right shade, but day-to-day, I’m just not really a lipstick person. I don’t have the patience for constantly checking if it’s on my teeth (it usually is), and doing touch-ups throughout the day.

But that doesn’t mean that I don’t like a touch of color on my lips, and especially in the winter when my lips are constantly dry, I want something to keep them moisturized. I want the lipstick version of the no-makeup makeup look. And I found it last year when Nars came out with a whole line of Orgasm lip products, including the Afterglow Lip Balm. I’ve had it in my purse constantly since I bought it, and wear it all the time. It’s a really nice pinky-peach shade, and it looks really natural on me.

Sometimes, though, I do want just a little bit more. When I was browsing Sephora’s website (which is dangerous!), I saw that they had come out with more colors in the Afterglow Lip Balm that I already love! Because I’m someone who finds something that she likes and sticks with it, I bought not one, but two more shades – Dolce Vita, which is described as a sheer dusty rose, and Turbo, a sheer cherry red.

Honestly, every shade that I’ve tried is great, and it’s taking everything in me not to buy all of them! Now I keep all three options in my bag, with me at all times.
