When Gucci's dreaming up a new shade for her makeup bag, color inspiration can strike anywhere—even from a favorite cool-in-the-heat treat. "I really wanted a fresh watermelon burst that makes you think of summer," she says of Popsicle, the new Squeaky Clean Liquid Lip Balm shade that launches today exclusively for Nordstrom.
To complement the juicy sheer red lip color, she creates a tawny golden glow on model and artist Lulu Bonfils by sweeping Super Loaded Tinted Highlight in Peau de Soleil onto cheeks and lids."Combining warm bronze tones with the cooler red [lip] creates the best balance," Gucci explains. Next, she uses the Les Jours Eye Pods palette for a soft, chocolate bronze effect that makes Lulu's blue eye pop.
Then, the real scene stealer is Popsicle, a hydrating tinted lip treatment with a bright watermelon sheen and a hint of shimmer that adds punchy vibrancy. Made with nourishing jojoba, almond, and argan oils, it's the easiest on-the-go boost for pool days, summer nights, and breezy vacation weekends. Translation? “Ready to go out and hit those waves!"
