Current Obsession: Tory Burch's Lip & Cheek Tint

True story: In my frat party-going years, I used to be so paranoid about getting late-night 'pasty face' that I wouldn't leave my dorm room without Estee Lauder's massive, compact disc-sized Bronze Goddess. Let's just say I seldom looked anything but glow-y in the Beta Theta Pi basement—but that I ruined the inside of a lot of good purses in the process.

Fast forward several years and my pallor-busting weapon of choice is a touch more sophisticated (and way more convenient). These days, I find myself reaching for Tory Burch's skin-awakening Lip & Cheek Tint ($38) whenever my face needs a dose of color. Just a dab of the gel-like formula (which, BTW, lasts pretty much forever) imparts the most perfectly natural-looking summer glow.

Unlike other cheek stains and tints, which tend to require a very, very light touch to avoid clown-dom, this semi-sheer color is buildable, dewy and fresh. And don't worry about picking out the perfect shade for your skin tone: this baby only comes in one looks-good-on-everyone color, aptly named "The Cat's Meow."
