Skip The NARS Bento Box Waitlist: 3 Just-As-Awesome Lip Balms

Who could’ve predicted a waitlist for lip gloss?  The limited-edition NARS Bento Box Lip Gloss ($125), which hits stores on Monday, will likely make beauty history, with only 1,000 available nationwide and growing hype. While the super-saturated red and pink shades, inspired by Japanese Kabuki theater, are definitely gorgeous, if you lack patience (or bank), get your bright-gloss-in-a-pot fix–with these 3 alternatives:

Topshop’s Polish ($12), shown here in Coral, is bright, highly pigmented and budget friendly, so you can afford other fall must-haves. A tip: go easy on the rest of your face, just a sweep of mascara will complement your lips perfectly.

This NARS Lip Lacquer ($24) in Hot Wired may be a bit more sheer than Bento Box’s shades, but that just makes the pink  more suitable for everyday use.

L’Oréal‘s HIP Jelly Balm ($9) is known for its high intensity colors, and this cherry red shade, Delectable, is no exception. Dab on just a bit with your finger for an understated stain, or pile it on for an attention-grabbing pout.

 

Ease the application process by investing in a good-quality lip brush, like this one from Cargo ($17), which helps even the shakiest hand be more precise.
