1. Essie Butler Please is such a gorgeous winter blue from Essie. The consistency of this product is awesome, it is opaque (with 2 coats) and dries semi-matte. I have been layering Essie’s Stroke of Brilliance on top for shine and glitter (’tis the season).
2. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect nude lip gloss, Smashbox Illume is an awesome pick. You can snag it at Sephora. Although lately it has been sold out – must be popular! :) If you can find it, get it!
3. Smith’s Rosebud Salve has been a lifesaver lately. Cold air + heat = chapped lips (at least for me! How about you?) This product smells great, is long-lasting, and appears subtly shiny (almost mimicking a gloss). I bought my first tube at Lux Beauty Store in Red Bank and recently picked up two more at Blue Mercury in Shrewsbury. I always opt for the tube because the pot is just disgusting (honestly, in my opinion it is just a little nasty pot of germs that is probably doing you more harm than good. Get the tube!)
Hope this was helpful!
