Not For Eating: Pop's Lip Lust


THE MOST FASCINATING thing about Pop‘s Lip Lust ($13, Sephora) lipsticks are that they are “infused with natural food flavorings for yummy taste.” While we tried only Petal Pink — maybe Dewy Toffee had more tang — we concluded that cosmetics purveyors must have a recessive genetic trait that makes food taste like crayons (with perhaps a touch of cotton candy).

But that’s OK. We don’t view cosmetics as meal substitutes. As a lipstick, it’s nice — sheer, moisturizing, a little iridescent. And, we suppose, if we had to eat it in an emergency, it would taste better than other brands.
