EcoStiletto: A Hint of Tint

Pacifica Color Quench Lip Tint Trio ($18)

From color on your teeth to oh-so-attractive smearing during that hot-and-heavy makeout sesh, lipstick can be just too much to deal with. It’s often easier to skip the stick in favor of something glossy and sheer.

With that said, however, we prefer a little color kick to our gloss, especially for a night out or a new date when you’ll want to be spared from the issues above.

Enter Pacifica’s new Color Quench Lip Tints. They come in a variety of subtle shades such as Blood Orange, Sugared Fig and Guava Berry, ranging from the sheerest frosty pink to subtle orange reds and plums. And they add the perfect touch of color while supplying lips with a rich supply of long-lasting moisture from coconut oil, cocoa seed butter and avocado oil.

Free of artificial fragrance or other Big List nasties, the vegan ingredient list makes for a pretty, cruelty-free pucker.

Best of all, they come in a jumbo size for those of you lucky enough to be endowed with bee-stung smackers that require more coverage per swipe, as well as a slimmer size that’s perfect for your pocket.

Because after that hot date, you’ll want to re-apply.
