SPF used to be confined only to sunscreen, but now it’s making an appearance in all sorts of cosmetics, ranging from lip gloss to moisturizers and foundations. Most makeup doesn’t offer protection greater than SPF 15, but Stila recently launched some new SPF 30 and SPF 20 products— just in time for those summer beach trips.
The new Sheer Tinted Color Moisturizer SPF 30 offers double the protection of its original SPF 15 counterpart. It’s a great alternative to foundation because it’s a lot lighter but will still even out your skin tone. Pomegranate extract (pomegranate is a great antioxidant!) also helps prevent future skin damage. Best of all, this moisturizer is oil-free, so you won’t have to deal with that dreaded midday shine.
Stila also hasn’t forgotten that our most kissable parts need extra protection, too. Stila SPF 20 Shine Lip Color comes in eight shades and provides color that is subtle, but not overpowering. Packed with Vitamins A, C, and E, it delivers protection against more than just the sun. All this plus a mild vanilla scent makes it one of those summer makeup must-haves that you’ll keep in your purse at all times.
