Get Kissable Lips, Baby!

7 Nov

As much as I love pumpkin spice coffee, cozy nights and the smell of an apple spice candle, one thing that I just hate about this time of year is chapped lips. Your lips go from totally kissable to totally miserable, and it can happen overnight! How are you supposed to pull off those dark burgundy lips or bright red holiday lips if they are dry and cracking? Gross! Well, fret no more I have found the BEST product to prevent chapped lips before they even start.

Hello Baby, Baby Lips that is! Baby Lips by Maybelline has a super soft texture, tastes delicious and has been “clinically proven to make lips 82% visibly less dry, 94% less rough, 77% more supple, and 77% better looking after just four weeks of use!” I noticed a change in just a week. Oh and did I mention its only $2.99 and it comes in six amazing colors and flavors? I am currently obsessed with Peach Kiss!

Get out there and get it ladies, you don’t want chapped lips to be the reason you turn down that kiss under the mistletoe this holiday season 🙂

What other lip products do you use? What’s your favorite Baby Lips color?

Go Nude! The Best Nude Lipstick

26 Aug

I am a HUGE fan of nude lips. I have plumper lips so I tend to want to make them blend in a little, I know I know people pay crazy amounts of money to have their lips injected and gloss them to make them look fuller, but I just always wanted to tone mine down a bit…don’t judge. 🙂 That being said, I have always worn nude or lighter colored lip colors (I must admit I have explored with red during the holiday season and actually kind of liked it!)

Until about a year ago I was still perusing the shelves for that perfect peachy, nude shade for my lips. I was actually hooked on MAC “Sandy B,” a gorgeous peachy, nude with a gold shimmer. I swore by this lipstick for a long time, until I started to pay my own bills and notice some slight problems. It came off pretty easily, I went through it pretty quickly and the price was a little steep, so I started looking look for another alternative. Don’t get me wrong I am a self-acclaimed MAC Addict, but there are just some things I think you can get that are just as good in quality for half the price.

So after trying out a ton of different brands, I FINALLY found the PERFECT nude, and with good timing, actually right before my wedding day 🙂 Until then I have literally lived on the stuff and have gone through about 10 tubes, not to mention got a lot of other people hooked on it too and not to mention a lot of compliments. My go-to nude lipstick is actually by Revlon and titled  “Just Enough Buff” (#613) and that couldn’t be more accurate. And ladies, its only $6.99! It is a smooth, silky texture with a gorgeous peachy, pinky hue that adds a hint of color while still having that nude (but not sickly, you know what I am talking about) tone to my lips! My only small complaint is that it is hard to find. I usually can find it at ULTA if I search hard enough. Target, and other drugstores typically don’t have it…I am kind of hesitating about writing this blog because it is going to be even harder to find now that I am letting my little secret out. Oh well, its totally worth it!

It’s time to GO NUDE! (in lip colors of course! ;)) Try my fave and let me know what you think! Or if you have your own favorite I would LOVE to hear about it!
