Back in January, legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath launched a lip balm. Not just any lip balm — a $38 one that was (somehow) worth the price tag because of its iconic sculptural tube, lovely (and not at all waxy) formula and incredible smoothing results. And now the master outdid herself with a tinted version. Available in eight shades — three shimmery, five satin-finish — the tint packs just enough pigment to make itself very much known, without creating a heavy, overtly makeup-y effect.
Like the original clear version, the tinted one is super-moisturizing, so it knocks out flakes and guards against chapping, making it the perfect go-to lip color for transitional seasonal weather. Though there's not a shade in the bunch I wouldn't wear, my go-to (shown above) is Passion Flower, a peach-y beige that reads as nude on my skin.
