So imagine my delight when I spotted Estée Lauder's Pure Color Sheer Rollergloss in Squeeze in the beauty closet the other day and discovered that not only does it give my lips the perfect glossy sheen, but the scent and taste make it a dead ringer for a watermelon Ring Pop.

1. Sara Happ Lip Scrub in Vanilla Bean. No gloss or lipstick is going to look good over chapped, flaky lips. I use this scrub in the shower each morning and lick off the excess.

2. Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss in Dulce. This nude shade has a hint of shimmer and a delicious caramel scent.

3. Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Gel in Crystal Plum. Intimidated by full-on purple lipstick? Try this superhydrating gel gloss, which imparts a subtle violet color and black currant fragrance.
