Unboxed: A Blue Lip Gloss That Adjusts to Your Skin Tone

Any full-fledged beauty junkie will agree: There’s nothing that quite matches the thrill of opening a brand-new beauty product. The crisp, clean packaging, the rustle of paper and plastic—we consider it the beauty editor’s version of therapy (who’s with us?!). Since we open and try new products on the daily as part of our job, we thought we’d invite you, dear reader, along to discover and unbox with us. With our new video series, Unboxed, you’ll be able to watch us open and try out the latest and greatest in beauty—from futuristic-looking beauty gadgets to color-changing lip glosses.

In this installment, we’ll be unboxing the latter: a magical, shimmery blue lip gloss from Lipstick Queen called Hello Sailor Lip Gloss ($25). This gloss looks ocean blue and sparkly in the tube but promises to adjust to a mauve-pink color once you apply, like magic—in other words, we needed to put it on immediately. Curious about the final result? You’ll have to watch the video above to see!

What do you think—would you give this color-changing lip gloss a try? Shop it and some of our other favorite glosses below! Plus, check out our previous Unboxed video, featuring a buzzy (literally) blue gadget that gives you glowing skin.
