Lip Treatments - Chapstick - 3 in 1 Total Hydration

Mar/24/2017

I have several of the non-tinted versions of this balm in every purse, knitting bag and desk drawer in my house. It's my new favorite lip balm. Very hydrating for me and they feel really great.

I was super excited to try the tinted version but alas, it's nowhere near as balmy/creamy and the color I tried (coral blush) was weird and harsh on me. Bummed about that but the …

Lips - ColourPop - Ultra Matte Lip Scrooge

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/27/2016

I purchased Scrooge based on a picture I saw in a FOTD on the Makeup Board. In the picture, it was a beautiful red with a hint of pink and it looked fabulous on the gal wearing it. I became obsessed and ordered it, even though I HATE matte lips on me and detest drying lip products. I typically just wear a tinted balm of some sort or I'll put on a regular lipstick with the intention of …Read more

This is the first ColourPop item I've tried and I'm pretty impressed with it. Right now, I'm fresh off of vacation with a tan and a face full of freckles. I tried this color first because I doubt I'll brave it when I'm paler and I never wear orange lipstick. It's a really nice color, though not as sheer as ColourPop lead me to believe. It's pretty pigmented and …Read more

Lipstick - ColourPop - Lippie Stix Peacocky

Jun/22/2016

I purchased a relatively large order of lipsticks (& one shadow) from ColourPop recently. I chose Peacocky based on the promo pictures of it on ColourPop's website. Being that it's sheer, I expected it to be similar to LQ's Medieval. It is NOT similar at all and is very lovely in it's own right. It's a very pigmented, blue-based red...more pigmented than the website …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen + Pearl Lipstick - Peach Blossom

Jun/01/2016

This is one of my top 3 favorite lip colors. The color is wonderful (pinky-peachy-nude) with a hint of pearly glimmer. As I age, I don't like a ton of heavy color on my lips and will often just use a clear or lightly tinted balm. I don't have the patience for products requiring a lot of maintenance and heavy or matte colors make my lips look smaller and me older. So, while the color …Read more

Lips - CLINIQUE - Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm - Bountiful Blush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/31/2015

Bountiful Blush is an underrated, overlooked color...it's described as a "dusty rose" and it gives my lips a natural blush but doesn't scream "PINK LIPSTICK!" I swatched it next to Chanel's Mademoiselle and while it's not quite as deep as Mademoiselle, it's a very close dupe and is more moisturizing and wearable for me. It doesn't turn orange or …Read more

Lips - CLINIQUE - Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm

Aug/26/2015

I own this product in Flowering Freesia & Coming Up Rosy. FF is my go-to, every day tinted lip balm. For me, it is extremely moisturizing and gives a nice, pinky-mauve-plum flush to my pale pink lips and this type of color goes well with my brown hair, freckles & green eyes. HOWEVER, it does leave a noticeable stain that sticks around for quite a while. If I wear this product all day, my …Read more

I have this color in New Moon, which I purchased a year ago and thought was limited edition but now I see it on the website? I hope this is permanent bc I LOVE this eyeshadow! I buff it onto my primed lids with a stout little RT brush and am good to go. My favorite way to wear it is in a thin layer--this gives me a sheer & shimmery peach-mauve-beige shade. If I add more layers, the mauve is …Read more

Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Hello Sailor

Jul/07/2015

On me, this is a nice, plummy-blueberry color. It actually does start out a tad too blue but it fades within a minute or two into a berry color. It's extremely balmy but when the balm wears off, it definitely leaves a berry pink stain behind that's not easy to remove. So for me, the staying power is actually really good. It's more color than I usually like but if I'm going …Read more

Jan/06/2015

I am a sucker for Baby Lips but I'm usually disappointed with the product overall. I hate the smell & taste of the versions with SPF and they dry my lips out. The electro ones were meh (the purple was ok though), the pink line was TOOOOO pink and bright, etc. The only BL I've LOVED so far was the LE Melon Mania. When I saw the crystal line, I did not intend to purchase any because I …Read more
