{Burt’s Bees} Lip Crayon

October 27, 2014

3

Hello Lovelies! Matte lipsticks are popping up everywhere lately! The trick is finding a matte lipstick without the yucky dry feeling. I recently picked up Burt’s Bees NEW Matte Lip Crayons in Hawaiian Smolder (pink) and Napa Vineyard (red). I’ve tried and loved other lip chubbies, but these are not like the others… they’re opaque and matte! “Six […]

{OCC} Lip Tar Stained Gloss

May 16, 2013

4

Hello Lovelies, When Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics came out with their Lip Tar, I was SO excited.

To make matters worse, the Lip Tars have such great staining and staying power, I couldn’t get them off! I […]

Maybelline :: Color Whisper Lipstick

February 1, 2013

10

Have you heard? Maybelline launched a lipstick called Color Whisper for Spring 2013! I picked up 2 colors (Mocha Muse & Made It Mauve) and they instantly reminded me of Revlon’s Lip Butter (review here). Whisper (in my opinion) is a hybrid: mostly lightweight lipstick and part balm. The Color Whisper line comes in 20 […]

{DIY} Homemade Lip Scrub: Remedy for Dry/Chapped Lips

January 13, 2013

40

Contrary to common belief, lip balm is not the best way to combat dry chapped lips. Exfoliation is the 1st (and critical) step in fighting chapped lips! Exfoliating your lips twice a week will help rid of dead skin cells leaving lips soft and smooth, which allows moisture (aka lip balms) to penetrate your lips! […]

November 5, 2012

Have you heard of the Abreva Conceal Patch?! What is it?: Abreva Conceal (buy here) is a clean, non-medicated patch for cold sores that allows air in, yet protective enough to keep contaminants out. It creates a protective barrier that allows air in with MicroAir technology while keeping contaminants out. My Overall Thoughts: The Abreva […]

11

As I promised, here’s a sneak peek into my purse! Have you noticed that the bigger your bag is, the more stuff/junk/trash you end up lugging around? My shoulders were pleading for mercy, so I decided to lighten the load by carrying a smaller purse… a clutch actually! I love my Zeta clutch by Melie […]

Buxom Cream… I think I love you.

March 1, 2012

6

Waaaaay before Buxom Creams, I’ve been in love with Buxom Lip Polishes. Been using the polishes for years (probably on my 12th bottle, no joke) and now the lip gloss gods have answered my prayers with Buxom Creams. Basically, Buxom Creams is everything wonderful about the Polishes minus the glitter. Don’t get me wrong, I […]

Hush Hush…

February 26, 2012

1

I haven’t bought a MAC lip product in a LONG time because I don’t like their super sticky consistency. But I believe in second chances, so I picked up MAC’s Limited Edition Hush, Hush Tendertone Lip Balm ($15) to see what the hype was about. Here’s how MAC describes Tendertones: The next generation lip conditioner […]

December 7, 2011

35

I wrote Lip Saver in hopes of finding a solution to my chronically dry lips, or at least to start a discussion of what other people have experienced. Never did I think it would lead me to Boob Cream. I wondered… why hadn’t I thought of using boob cream before? I’ve tried just about everything […]

Lip Savers.

December 7, 2011

10

For most of my life, I’ve struggled with irritated, peeling, chapped and severely dry lips (as well as the skin around my lips). In case you’re wondering: I never lick my lips, so that is not the cause. Channeling Lady Gaga when I say: “I was born this way.” My lips are so painfully dry […]

Winter Must Haves

November 7, 2011

As the weather gets colder, here are a few things that are my must haves. 1. Bounce Strange that this is #1 on my list, but I really don’t like having static in my hair. During the cold season, it’s inevitable to get static-y hair and shock yourself when you reach for door handles (Ugh). […]
