THE LIP GLOSS STICK
Moisturise lips and add sheer colour and shine with these conditioning lip gloss sticks from Pür Minerals, recommends M&S.com beauty editor Jess Clark
As someone who bypassed the trend for jumbo lip pencils, I was more than pleasantly surprised by Pür Minerals’ oversized gloss sticks. They’re billed as a gloss, but their emollient and vitamin-rich formula leaves lips feeling nourished and moist, not sticky; I even apply mine on days when I’m staying at home, just for the soothing feel. The retractable, chubby crayon design is all about simplicity. It’s easy to apply and doesn’t need sharpening; just wind it up and pop it on – no mirror required. Pür Minerals products are paraben-free and not tested on animals, but the thing I really love about these sticks is the sheer and wearable shades, which look like pretty variations of true lip colour. These buttery-soft pencils will be my go-to lip product for summer.
