Tōn Cosmetics reds and nudes for every skintone

Tōn Cosmetics reds and nudes for every skintone

This week the Lipstick League wants to know, what's your fave summer lip colour? 

I can't say I have a favourite per se – I adore orange especially for hot weather, and fuchsia of course, but for the most part I've been wearing almost exclusively RMS Beauty Lip 2 Cheek in Beloved over a layer of pure, medical-grade lanolin. 

On cheeks: RMS Beauty Lip 2 Cheek in Beloved. On lips: Tōn Cosmetics Medium Cool 2 lipstick over lanolin.

That said, a few days ago I tried a couple of swipes of a new favourite red-pink lipstick – Medium Cool 2 from Canadian brand Tōn Cosmetics – over the lanolin and loved the juicy effect. I'm wearing it here, along with RMS Beauty Lip 2 Cheek in Beloved on my cheeks. (I think Medium Cool 2 is the lipstick at the base of the opening image – I snapped that shot a while back and somehow neglected to make a note of which shade was where. 🤦🏻‍♀️)

I'll be writing more about Tōn (as in "tone") Cosmetics shortly – they've just launched a pink range, too – but in the meantime do try their 7-question quiz to determine your skin tone and best shades. Tōn is available in Canada and the USA via their website. And note: you'll need to know the colour of the skin behind your ears...

we heart this is sharing love of all things coconut, including Kopari Coconut Rose Toner. They're also sharing shocking footage of Stef trying to envelop herself in coconut…

Beautygeeks is tickled that the Coppertone Clearly Sheer (and Water Babies) Whipped Sunscreen SPF 50 facilitated the use of the word “FART” in a beauty post – and headline too. *giggle*

we heart this is Currently Craving: sunscreen. Which is funny because Stef hates sunscreen. (Hold your disdain, she KNOWS how wrong this is!) She also knows it’s improved from the stinky, white cast version of her youth. She wants the new Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection WetForce SPF 50+ because she hears it’s a game-changer.
