I Found My Perfect Natural Lip Color!

recently came out with Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm ($24 @ sephora.com). The formula comes in 8 satin-finish colors – from Fate, described as a clear but better (is that like YLBB??) to Wicked, a deep plum purple. And speaking of, while the Fate shade shown here wasn’t anything to write home about, the Rebel color is the consummate sheer pink color, so acronym’d it would be MPLC (my perfect lip color).

The feel of the formula on my lips was comfortable, not quite as heavy as a balm, and of course not sticky, and if you’ve read Cybelesays.com for a while, you know how crazy I am about wearing comfortable lippies! And each of these Gel Colors is made with rapeseed, sunflower, and vitamin E, among lip-nourishing other ingredients.

And my new MPLC of Rebel? I have a feeling I’m going to be wearing this a lot as it seems like it will work both for the office and paired with a smoky eye look.

And of course each comes with the accouterments of the metal tin box that has the mirror on the inside and the pencil sharpener especially made for these sticks.

Splurge or Save – What U Need This Summer

Face-Mist-$$$-or-$
All face mists are not created equal, which is what I thought for many years. I go through a few face mists each summer. They’re so totable and great for a quick refresh on the go. Here are two I love.

$$$TARTE COSMETICS Marine Boosting 4-in-1 Mist ($25/2.5oz @ tartecosmetics.com and sephora.com) – you’ll love this multi-tasker this season! It’s a face primer, makeup setting spray, hydrating mist and skin refresher. This one also contains their Rainforest of the Sea antioxidant complex to help nourish the skin. Yaaas!

$LA ROCHE-POSAY Thermal Spring Water Essential ($12.99/5.2oz @ target.com) – this thermal water is a super fine mist of antioxidant-rich spring water. This one feels so good on the skin when it's super hot so I have one of these cans tucked in a few different places.

A Huge Release from Urban Decay!

Urban-Decay-Vice-Lipsticks-on-table
URBAN DECAY
just came out with a huge release. Like physically huge! Like 100 lipsticks! It’s Vice Lipstick and these span the range of finishes – from Mega Matte (designated by MM), Comfort Matte (CM), Cream (C), Metallized (M), Sheer (S), and Sheer Shimmer (SS).

So what is this Vice and why do I need them?

Vice Lipstick comes in a modernized, luxed-up version of our original lipstick case (that looked like a shotgun shell). It’s new, but speaks to our roots.

The luxurious, faceted gunmetal case has a gold base and debossed lettering.

Our custom-designed lipstick features an embossed “UD.”

Shade-matching labels (including the shade name and finish) make it easy to find our current addiction in your bag.

Let's get to the unboxing!
