Glossier's Juicy New Skin-Care Product Basically Screams Summer

Just two weeks after the buzziest beauty launch this year (also known as Glossier Play), Glossier founder Emily Weiss and her genius P&D associates are back with something even juicier. Literally.
Sure, it's no vibrant teal gel eyeliner or shimmery Glitter Gelée, but it is fresh, seasonal, and very on brand for Glossier: the newly-formulated Balm Dotcom in Mango.
If you're obsessed with Balm Dotcom, you'll know that the newbie joins Original, Birthday, Rose, Cherry, Mint, and Coconut in the range, which has already earned a cult following for its thick, moisture-sealing ointment texture (a less sexy way of saying "universal skin salve," as the Glossier team calls it). The formula is more than a lip balm: You can also dab a dollop onto the dry skin of your elbows, and cuticles and use it to smooth down frizzy bits, too — if you're so inclined to smell like a mango tree all over.
Like the existing Rose and Cherry Balm Dotcom varieties, Mango has a semi-sheer tint: a soft coral-y peach, like the colour of an actual mango. It's no Vinylic Lip, but the colour payoff is best described as your-lips-but-better, with a naturally flushed, glazed sheen.
It's what you'd want your lips to look like after biting into a very juicy mango on a steamy Saturday afternoon in July — except this is much more glamorous and a lot less sticky than the real thing.
