Perricone MD No Makeup Lipstick Broad Spectrum SPF 15

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. 

Perricone MD is best known for their eponymous skincare line and the No Makeup Makeup cosmetics line. The newest addition to the No Makeup line is the No Makeup Lipstick Broad Spectrum SPF 15. 

These cushiony, solid-to-serum lipsticks condition, hydrate and smooth lips with a sheer wash of natural color and a glossy tint. I think “lipstick” is misleading because these really are lip balms with sunscreen. You know what they say, “if it feels like a balm, looks like a balm and lasts like a balm, it’s probably a balm.”

Perricone MD No Makeup Lipstick Broad Spectrum SPF 15

The brand sent Original Pink which is a very sheer pink that pulls more peach on me. These lipsticks are designed for a natural look but I prefer more pigment to brighten my complexion. I have a few balms from other brands that manage to feel just as moisturizing yet have more pigment. On the plus side, it’s not sticky or tacky.

The packaging is very luxe as well as practical. The sleek gunmetal tube twists open so the balm will never dry out and the top will never come off. Smart. There is a pleasant vanilla scent but you really have to get your nose up close to smell it. The Perricone logo on both the lipstick tube and the lipstick itself is a nice touch.

While I like the feel of this balm, I prefer more pigment. I also think $30 is too pricey for this product compared to other balms on the market. If, however, you love a sheer tint of color in a smooth moisturizing balm, Perricone MD No Makeup Lipstick Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is for you!
