Holy Rosebud Salve Gift Sets Batman!

rosebud salve set

In 2007, I wrote a post about Rosebud Salve being the solution to life, the universe, and everything. Honestly, it’s either Rosebud Salve or 42 but I choose to believe it’s Rosebud Salve.

Why you may ask…

Well because it’s a multitasking demon! You can use it on your lips, your face, your dry elbows and knees, to tame your frizzy dead ends, as a brow wax, on a cut, the list of tasks it can take on are endless.

If you haven’t tried now is a good time to start with some of these fab little sets available at Ulta!


E.L.F. Studio Gotta Glow Lip Tint Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Studio Gotta Glow Lip Tint

E.L.F. Studio Gotta Glow Lip Tint ($6) is one of those lip tints you’re going to really love or really hate. E.L.F. Studio Gotta Glow Lip Tint is formulated to react with the chemistry of your lips to create a personalized shade of pink. I know, I know, you’re likely not buying into that after all these years of brands telling you about your “perfect shade of pink”.

There’s Tarte LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint, Diorglow Dior Addict Lip Glow, Catrice Tinted Lip Glow Balm, and the list goes on and on and on. Most of these color changing lip tint treatments aren’t a universally flatter shade but more of a bubblegum pink no matter your skin tone or body chemistry. But none the less many of flock towards them like seagulls. And it is understandable as we somehow desire just a quickie way to get some color on our lips and go. At least that’s the case for me as I’m kinda sorta lazy about retouching up with lipstick or gloss but give me a quick lip tint or balm I can tuck into my desk drawer and I can easily swipe it on for a little color.
