Good news for those who have been stalking Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks ($16) they have finally made their way to our side of the pond. These released in the UK several months ago and just recently arrived at Sephora and Sephora.com
Of course, I’m hyped. Chubby pencil anything and I’m on it like white on rice particularly ones by Soap & Glory since I have such brand love for them.
Let’s take a look!
I’m absolutely thrilled that Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm is back in four new limited edition shades for Summer 2013. Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm made an original appearance in Europe but they took nearly two years to hit our counters for Summer 2012.
I’m happy to have these back this year. Fact of the matter is they are just too cool for school. Especially since this year they come in a translucent base of emerald green and turquoise. You’ll just want to sit around and stare at them rather than apply them to your lips!
Take a look!
Dior’s Summer 2013 Makeup Collection brings us three new, limited edition Jelly Lip Pens. Yes, tinted lip pencils from Dior! The Dior Jelly Lip Pen ($26) are a chubby tinted pencil with a moisturizing formula and a shiny finish much like Clinique’s Chubby Balms.
I was when I heard Dior was doing these. I said it before and I’ll say it again I love these damn things. Seriously, it’s one trend I haven’t yet grown tired of. And lord knows at this point you think I would have as the market is heavily saturated with a ton of variations.
How does Dior’s stand against them?
Take a look!
During out last discussion about the new Nivea Lip Butter we had a house divided here in fair Verona (or Musings of Muse whatever floats your boat, it’s almost time for Shakespeare in the Park, cut me a break alright?).
No seriously, I got a ton of mixed impressions about these lip butters. Some folks loved ‘em, some folks hated ‘em, some folks thought they were over hyped…after trying them I understand ALL of your feelings.
How’d I feel about them in the end?
Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm is a newly launched hybrid formula that has the pigment and shine of a gloss but the texture and moisturizing properties of a lip balm.
I dunno how I feel about a hybrid gloss slash balm. I mean I’m happy enough with my lip balm being a lip balm and my gloss being a gloss. Do the two products really need a marriage?
Let’s find out.
