The #ProductEmpties We Loved to the Last Drop
From new finds to longtime favorites, these are beauty products that our editors use until the bitter end (of the tube)
The Lip Balm That Replaced All My Lipsticks Try as I might, I've never been a lipstick girl. I painstakingly apply a bright color with every intention of owning that bold lip, but one unexpected encounter with a mirror and I'm tissuing it off. Actually, I've come to like the faded lipstick look that no amount of tissue can remove. And I've finally found a product that gives me that lingering kiss of color without tissue-blotting.
Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Rose, $6.99, is a touch of color that brightens my lips without making me afraid of my own reflection. It's got the addictive moisturizing element of a lip balm, but a hint of color that makes me look natural and healthy. It's kind of like that berry-red shade my lips become after being exposed to cold and wind in winter, minus all the chapping, peeling and accompanying sniffles. Being a beauty hoarder/editor, I have glosses and balms that are five years old that I still can't finish, but this little balm is on its last twist. --Emily Woodruff
