Sometimes, simpler is better. This is why products that roll out of their cases were invented in the first place – convenience! Gone are the days of having to literally paint our faces. These days, we can simply swipe things on to streamline the beautification process. This has led to what is set to be one of 2023’s biggest trends – beauty sticks.
What are beauty sticks?
While beauty sticks have been popular in the make-up world for some time – with lipstick being a prime example – it has grown in popularity in the skincare industry, too. They are products that are designed to be rolled up out of a protective case for easy use. This also makes it easier for you to carry around in your handbag for on-the-go touch-ups, and keeps your cosmetics clean.
Lipstick has been sold in a stick format for a long time, but there are other make-up products that are more frequently being sold in this type of packaging. Foundation sticks make contouring a breeze and blush and highlighter sticks deliver creamy, buildable colour.
When it comes to skincare, this has been a popular way to package lip balm. Now, other staples are getting the beauty-stick treatment. One of them is sunscreen, which can make it less messy to reapply. Another one is serum, which you might be used to seeing in liquid format. Solid formulas that melt when in contact with the skin are going to be trendy this year (and will lead to fewer spills in your overnight bag)!
Something to be mindful of when using beauty sticks is the transfer of germs and bacteria from your face, which can contaminate your product. For this reason, ensure that your face is clean before you swipe.
