Lipstick Challenge Day 21: Old School


Lip Smackers Dr. Pepper Lip Balm $1.99 

So I have not picked up a Dr. Pepper lip balm in about ten years. But the other day, while killing time in CVS,  I swear it was 7:30 on a weeknight and my girlfriend was seeing a Chiropractor and all the stores were closed except for CVS and Davids Tea, I had to go in. Continue reading

Lipstick Challenge Day 19: Paw Paw


Suvana Organic Certified Organic Paw Paw & Honey Balm, $14.00

I’ve been mildly aware of Paw Paw as a thing generally and as ingredient a lip balm, what have you for a while. But it never really caught my attention, that was until it became winter, and I moved to a colder locale and my use of lip balm skyrocketed.   Continue reading

For this post, I thought I would round up previous posts about lip balm and lip treatments that I reviewed before the Lipstick Challenge began. These products are so great, that I would hate for them not to be included.  Enjoy!  Continue reading

Lipstick Challenge Day 16: Medieval


Lipstick Queen Tinted Treatment in Medieval $20.00

First, I have a super girl crush on Poppy King. I just started her book,  Lessons of a Lipstick Queen, and so far I love it. As a person who has loved and adored lip products more than the average person or Beauty Editor, I can totally relate to Poppy King. Anyway. This is my second time purchasing Medieval, I am really in love with this lip product. It is basically the most perfect tinted balm. Continue reading

Lipstick Challenge Day 12: Lip Moisturizer


Malin + Goetz Lip Moisturizer $12.00

This stuff by Malin + Goetz is a lip balm, obviously. Its clear, has no taste, no fragrance and is pretty basic right down to its label (which I love). But what gets me about this and gets me to pull this out to show my lip balm enthusiast friends, is the consistency. Folks, wait- its a gel. A gel! Its so cool really, so space age-y.

Lipstick Challenge Day 11: Cheap Thrills

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm $7.00 in Rose, Tiger Lily and  Hibiscus

I love a good cheap thrill, and these are rather awesome. I hate the original Burt’s Bees lip balm. When people love it, I just know they need to have their eyes open to other greater lip balms that are out there.  I think the Burt’s Bees original is overly waxy and for me it leaves white ring around my mouth if I am not careful. So when I picked up these guys, I was hesitant. Continue reading

Lipstick Challenge Day 10: some limited edition lip gloss

Aerin Lauder

Aerin Beauty Limited Edition Lip Gloss in Perfect Nude $30.00

I love limited edition beauty products. So much. There is really nothing better than getting your hands on some little limited edition beauty item that you know will likely never resurface. This is one of those things. Continue reading
