When I was seven years old, I got my first mood ring. I loved that little marquise-cut stone more than I did my Polly Pockets — and that's honestly saying something. But over the years, the novelty wore off and I forgot about it completely. Recently though, I've found its grown-up, beauty replacement: color-changing lipsticks.
It's not just the finish that has me singing this tube's praises though — the formula also ticks all the necessary boxes. It glides on like a balm, feels comfortable for hours, and fades to a pretty pink stain. And it just looks damn cool when you whip it out at the dinner table.
Needless to say, this lipstick has gone from a beauty throwback to a daily staple in my makeup routine. Is it gimmicky? Hell yes. But that's exactly what makes it so fun.
