To coincide with Mercury Retrograde, NCLA Beauty launched a Mercury Retrograde Jelly Balm that boasts a color-changing tint. The jellied lip product applies clear and then takes on a slight pink tink in response to one's natural pH levels.
Previously, the brand released another lip product with an outer space theme—the Pink Milkyway Jelly Balm with glitter. Across the world of cosmetics, many beauty brands are turning to the skies for inspiration, transforming astrological signs and other cosmic events into fun products and collections.
According to astrology, the points of the year when Mercury appears to be traveling backward can cause increased confusion, delays, frustration and technology troubles, yet this lip product puts a positive spin on the planetary event.
