Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Mountain Ocean - Lip Trip SPF 15

I got this lip balm because I was looking for a good natural moisturizing balm. It's more solid than I expected, but it's actually good. I don't necessarily use it for everyday wear, but because it's more solid, I think it'll hold up well on the beach. Also, I have trouble wearing lipsticks because they dry my lips out. This lip balm actually smoothes out your lips and creates a thin barrier for your lipstick to go on top of. It stops lipsticks from accentuating cracks, too. Because of that use in particular, I'd definitely buy this again! Most other lip balms are too soft and slippery, and the lipsticks slide right off. Lip Trip actually seems to make the lipstick stick better!
My legs are extremely sensitive to shaving, and this is the only shaving cream I've found that helps keep my legs almost free from razor burn and bleeding. Unfortunately, I've run out and can't find it anywhere. I've gone to every store in my area that has shaving products, and it's nowhere to be found! Is it discontinued? Does anyone know of a good alternative? I've tried Skintimate and other similar brands and nothing measures up.
This is a nice neutral for me, because it has pink undertones to it. A darker nude, but not too dark to look strange with my fair skin and blonde hair. It reminds me of the Lust lipglass, but it's more pink.
For those who don't know (how could you not?!), this lipglass is in the Give Me Liberty of London collection. The limited edition packaging is gorgeous. I was nervous about the color because it seemed bright online, but on my lips, it is a beautiful muted blue-based pink (purplish). I think it's considered a cream finish or something because there's shine, but no sparkle/shimmer/glitter. A unique color and I think it would probably look flattering on a lot of people.
I am in love. I was nervous at first about this color, but I had to get it, of course, because it's Gaga! The greatest thing about it is what many people have said - it's buildable. You can apply it lightly for a pretty light pink or heavier for a brighter pink. Even when it's applied heavier, though, it's bright enough so that it's a more unique pink color but at the same time, it's not an obnoxious HEY LOOK AT ME color that I would feel uncomfortable wearing at work. And it's for a good cause, too. I definitely recommend this lippie to people who like light/bright pink lipsticks.
Lust looks like a pretty medium pinky nude on me. A nice natural color appropriate for work or a night out, whatever you're in the mood for! I like the texture of lipglasses and they last longer than other lip glosses, but I know some don't like them because they're stickier. I honestly don't think they're that sticky, and maybe it's just my Lust, but this lipglass seemed even smoother than other lipglasses I've tried! Maybe it's because it's a more matte color.
I took points off because the lipglass tubes are smaller than most lip glosses of other brands, but other than that, this is a great product. Some say lipglass is too sticky, but I like the texture and it makes it last longer! The color differs on me. When my lips are drier, my lips are darker and OG turns out more sheer but with a pretty golden shimmer. When my lips are moisturized and lighter, the color ends up appearing as a muted light pink with gold shimmer. Either way, I can't get enough of Oyster Girl! It's a great subtle and classy lip gloss.
This is one of my favorites now! I agree with a previous reviewer in that it's similar to High Tea. I had HT before, but it washed me out in some lighting because it looked close to my skin tone. Politely Pink looks like the pink version of High Tea and it is gorgeous. The color also looks similar to Oyster Girl lipglass - they're both pale muted pinks on me. I definitely recommend this lipstick if you're going for a light pink. And a plus - it looks like a color my style icon Diane Kruger would wear!
This is my absolute favorite lip balm! I love it because it doesn't have a nasty plasticy taste, it smells great, and it moisturizes and lasts well. And after using it, my lipstick goes on smoother because my lips aren't dry!
I wanted to try this because I researched and found that it's supposed to be similar to the cremesheen color Creme Cup. It certainly is! It's better for me, though, because the cremesheen formula sinks into the lines in my lips and just doesn't look right. I like Angel much better.
Most lighter nude shades make me look ill because I'm fair to begin with, but this color is a pinky nude so it gives me the nude effect without washing me out! Love it!
This is my first lipglass and I love it! I wasn't sure if I'd like it because some people say it doesn't show up on them much and also because of how sticky Mac lipglass is supposed to be. On my naturally pinkish lips, it does lighten them up a bit and give them a nice pink sheen which is gorgeous for a natural everyday look! And as for the stickiness, it's not nearly as sticky as I thought it would be! I actually like the texture. Maybe this one is less sticky than others, I dunno. But I'm going to get more lipglass and find out ;)
I was first attracted to the lipglazes because of the packaging. It's gorgeous and so are the colors. I wasn't sure how this shade would look on me, but after trying it, I am in love. It's a light pinky-purple color, and the color lasts even after the glossiness wears off. Knowing my luck, this is probably a limited edition color. Hope not, though! I will definitely want to buy it again.
Lipstick -Neutrogena - MoistureShine Lip Stick in Just A Whisper (210)

This is one of my favorite everyday colors. It is a mauvey nude on my pigmented lips, gorgeous! It also moisturizes pretty well and and lasts longer than other lipsticks. It almost leaves a matte look. Most of the other MoistureShine lipsticks are either very pigmented or too frosty in my opnion, so I'm disappointed there are not more like Just A Whisper. Also, I'm sensitive to scents; maybe it was just my lipstick, but it didn't seem to have that annoying fruity smell like the others in this line do.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational - Totally Toffee

This is a pretty medium peachy nude. Wish it was a little lighter and it would be a great everyday nude for me! As usual, the packaging and texture are both great from the Color Sensational line.
