Oh my goodness it’s SUNNY OUT! The baby, dogs and I are loving our daily walks and meeting the neighbours! And one must keep up appearances mustn’t we? I’m finding that nothing is easier or more time effective then putting on a pretty lip colour to take my look from plain to polished! So here’s my top four beauty lip picks for this month!
Stila Lip Glaze in Raspberry
I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to talk about this amazing product that Nat got me into last year. I guess I use them so frequently they’ve been a no brainer part of my ‘quickie glam’ routine which meant that they’ve been *gasp* overlooked! At any rate I’m going to talk about them now – specifically the Raspberry shade – looks like a scary glitter plum shade but is AMAZING on! It adds just the right amount of depth and shine to glam up a plum lipstick look or temper too pale lips. I think it’s one of those amazing shades that will compliment anyone! It also doesn’t hurt that the lip gloss comes in a nifty click pen (no mess!) and has a yummy fruity scent.
Tarte Lipsurgence Skintuitive Lip Gloss
OK this awesome lip colour does just what is advertised. It really does create a “personalized pop of high-gloss, natural-looking pigment.” I’ve been lucky enough to snag two sample sizes of this amazing product by using my sephora points – WINNING! It also doesn’t hurt that it moisturizes and lasts! Once my samples run out I will be putting this product in my check out basket.
Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss in Sesso
I’m loving the full size lip gloss I got in my Urban Decay Naked on the Run Palette. It’s super nourishing and has a beautiful high shine finish! The rose/pink shimmer is awesome for my complexion for casual wear but the final look is so polished that I would wear it to a party as well. Unfortunately it appears that this is a limited edition colour so you have to buy the kit to get it. However the formula is so great that I would totally invest in more of these lovely glosses.
Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Elite
This coral colour is brighter than my usual neutral shades but this hydrating lip stain formula and pencil format has me wearing it all the time! I got this cool lip tint when I treated myself to the ‘Meet Your Match’ Set from Sephora. The set is amazing but the standout is this stain. When Tarte says stain they MEAN stain. One application kept my lips hydrated and pretty in pink through a grocery shopping trip, playtime, kisses for my loved ones, dinner, and tea! I think my lips only started to fade after my shower! Did I mention how much I love the pencil technology? I was able to fill in my lips without the worry of the typical stain bleed out. Seriously someone needs to stop me from ordering all of them right now … the Sephora page is open beside me … hide the credit card!
As you can tell April has been a lip happy month. I’m just really starting to get into lippies and I can say that I’m happy I did. Yay for Sunshine and Yay for Lippie Technology!
