Splurge or Save – What U Need This Summer

Who wants to wear a heavy lippie when the temps go up? Even most of my liquid lipsticks are taking a backseat this season for something with a light wash of color instead.

Here are two that give lips just a hint or ripeness while keeping them in tip top shape.


$$$ - LANCOME Juicy Shaker ($21 @, – these are super cute packaged pigment infused bi-phased lip oil. And the oils are good for conditioning the skin with a combo of apricot, rose de muscat, cranberry, peach and sweet almond oils. Shown here in #151 Cherry Symphony (red).

$ - BURT’S BEES Tinted Lip Balm ($5 @, – When my lips get a little dried out from wearing too many liquid lipsticks, I’ve been using this one in Rose to bring them back to life. Just a hint o’ color nestled inside some nourishing ingredients like shea butter and natural botanicals.

Now We Have a Makeup Trend On Our Hands!

Ok, I smell a trend here! Felt-tipped brow color is it and I’m so in. You may remember the review of this one recently and these latest one along the same line is from LANCOME. The Sourcils Tint Longwear Eyebrow Pen Ultra-Precise ($26 @ use a felt tip that actually adds color to the skin around the brow hairs. Think about it – isn’t that a better way to fill in brows? A typical pencil can skip, color the hair and skin or just look fake overall. These just add a dash of color where you need it and it’s buildable.

Finally, the Longevity of a Beauty Product’s Claim Is True!

We’ve all seen the exaggerations when it comes to the titles of beauty products – “12 Hour Wear…” here, “14 Hour,” there. So what’s in a name? It’s not illegal for them to do this but it is quite misleading. But one has come along from the LANCOME line that speaks the truth. It’s their Artliner 24H Bold Color Precision Eyeliner ($30 @ Now what could that 24H stand for, hmmm? 24…hues? 24…hairs? 24…Hours perhaps? Well I got more than 24 hours of wear out of these … on my arm! That’s right. I was swatching the colors one eve and it didn’t fade or flake off well past the 24-hour mark. I even had two people ask me if the slashes were tattoos!
