Urban Decay Lip Love

This is the Urban Decay Lip Love Honey-Infused Lip Therapy gloss in Failbait. I purchased this online at http://www.urbandecay.com/. Lip love costs $16.00 and it comes in 5 shades: Drizzle, Failbait, Lolita, Stung and Taunt.

The gloss provides the lips with a subtle tint which makes it great for everyday use.  The product smells of honey and tastes like it too!  It is moisturizing and lasts for a decent amount of time (although I find myself reapplying frequently because I love the smooth, moisturizing effects of this product).

Some of the contents of this product are listed right on the tube! It contains Apricot Kernel Seed Oil, Millet Oil, Vitamin C, Jojoba Oil and honey.

Urban Decay Lip Love is a great product but I wish that it was a little less expensive. Sixteen dollars will get you 0.34 fl oz, which is not very much, especially if you use it as frequently as I do!

This product is perfect for anyone who wants a moisturizing product that provides a little bit of color and an amazing shine on their lips! If you are a honey hater, perhaps try a different Urban Decay lip product, like Lip Junkie. (For the record, I am not a huge fan of honey but I don’t mind it in this gloss – it is really pleasant and sweet!)

I would repurchase this product in the future but probably in another color. I am really enjoying Failbait but I Lolita and Taunt are on my wish list! :D

Review: Philosophy Under the Mistletoe Lip Shine Set

Philosophy Under the Mistletoe Lip Shine Set

(3.5/5)

This set is a pretty great deal in terms of price, 4 lip glosses for $20. At $5/lip gloss, the  price is comparable to Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush lip glosses. If you purchased a single Philosophy lip gloss it would cost $10 so you are pretty much paying half price! Okay, enough about the cost!

I think the packaging is adorable & perfect for Christmas! I love the red sparkle, gold ribbon, and the theme of kissing!

This would make a great gift because of the varied shades of gloss. Each shade would look great on any skin color. These can also be mixed together to create a unique color or you can layer them on top of lipstick or lipliner. The lip glosses each have a fabulous holiday themed name: Peppermint Bark, Candy Cane, Pink Frosted Cookie and Have a Cherry Christmas.

Each gloss has a flavor that perfectly suits its name! :) My favorite is Candy Cane – it is minty and perfect for winter!

Peppermint Bark and Have a Cherry Christmas have a red tint and shimmer, Candy Cane is a classic clear gloss and Pink Frosted Cookie is a gorgeous light pink with an awesome shimmer.

I am already enjoying this set! It is a good pick for Christmas & the holiday season, very festive, functional & fun!

Review: Badger Cocoa Butter Lip Balm

Overall: (4.5/5)

Badger cocoa butter lip balm is awesome! It makes my lips feel so soft. Right now, I am using the creamy cocoa one.

I love this stuff for these reasons:

-It is organic.

-My lips feel great. The cocoa butter and extra virgin olive oil are excellent moisturizers.

-It smells so good-like chocolate! The scent is light and not overpowering.

-Price. I bought my lip balm at Wegman’s for under $5! You get a great amount of lip balm for that price. It is such a good deal!

-Tastes.Like.Chocolate. Yum!

-I love the packaging. There is something nice about applicating lip balm from the tube that Badger cocoa butter lip balm comes in. It is wider than a traditional lip blam tube (think Chapstick) and the balm goes on smoothly.

-Fair Trade: It just feels better when you know that something you are purchasing or using is a product that contains fairly traded ingredients! New to the term? It means that the people who are producing the ingredients in developing countries are getting a fair wage or amount for their work and products.

I know that you can buy this lip balm on the Badger website:  http://www.badgerbalm.com/default.aspx. I checked the website because I can’t wait to get some of the other varieties of the Cocoa Butter Lip Balm, especially Cool Mint and Lime Rocket.

Also, the website says that Badger is offering 20% off all fair trade products this month because it is Fair Trade Month. I would definitely recommend that you get this lip balm! It would also make a great gift!

Just a little tip-I keep a lip balm in all the pockets of my winter coats and jackets so that I never have to worry about having dry/chapped lips (just make sure you take it out before you do the laundry)!

Let me know what you think about Badger Cocoa Butter Lip Balms!
