Beauty Road Test: ILIA Lip Gloss
Are the latest beauty and wellness products worthy of a spot in your teensy carry-on? T+L Associate Editor Kathryn O’Shea-Evans shares her take.
The product: ILIA lip gloss, $24
Pros: New natural beauty brand ILIA just released an ultra-hydrating collection of lip-glosses in Popsicle-fresh colors. Each is packed with moisturizing ingredients (coconut oil, Shea butter, vitamin E), many of them organic. I adored “Love Buzz,” a Barbie pink shade that gave my lips decidedly grown-up gleam. Bonus: unlike a lot of glosses, it’s not the least bit sticky.
Cons: It only comes in six colors right now, and a couple of them are questionable (Gold? Ox Blood?). But the red, pink, and nude shades are divine.
