So I don’t know about you folks, but I deal with some serious ULS during the summer months. If you don’t know what I’m referring to, that would be good old glamorous “upper lip sweat.” Honestly if you don’t deal with this you’re either some super-human goddess or you’re lying to yourself.

I am the number one supporter of lipstick, but during the summer I honestly usually can’t be bothered. Sometimes I’m like “yas kween let’s rock a bold red lip in 90 degree weather” and other times I can’t even deal with chapstick. The good news is that I’ve found the solution. Rather than just putting on the most drying, long lasting lipstick you own (yes, I’m talking to you Ruby Woo), I have discovered the joy of sheer lipsticks.

I bought the Revlon Ultra-HD lipsticks because of #YouTubeMadeMeDoIt syndrome, but I have to say I love them. I bought two shades: Hibiscus and Marigold, and they’re great summer colors. The floral names made me grin, and the packaging is kind of cheap looking, but they’re honestly just awesome products. The colors are vivid but very layer-able, so you can go super bright or for more of a stain vibe.

I say they’re heat-proof because they stick well to your lips but you can also wipe them off super easily when you decide you’re over it. They stain just enough, but aren’t a dramatic mess to remove. The application is easy so just wipe on, wipe off à la Karate Kid. I know that this isn’t really what heat-proof means, but this is real life people. Lipstick will never last forever, so let’s stop trying to make that happen and just accept it.

Know any good summer-proof lip options?
