Seems like everywhere I look lately some brand has a new tinted lip product available. I guess we are all into lightweight lip products thus these brands deliver.
I was a little wary of checking out Korean Brand, Holika Holika’s Aqua Petit Jelly Tint Bar since I wasn’t really all that big a fan of DuWop Icedteas nor did I love on Maybelline Pop Sticks. Both brands had the potential to create a really great tinted lip product but sadly both failed to impress me.
Let’s take a peek at Holika Holika Tint Bar and see how it weights against others of its kind.
Revlon has successfully created a hybrid lipstick/lip balm with their new ColorBurst Lip Butter. Bring together a great formula, an inexpensive price tag, and rather nice packaging and you have the new Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter.
I hate to play favorites but Tarte is pumping out some of my personal favorite sets this Holiday season. It’s the value here! Most of their Holiday sets have full size items at a quarter of the price you’d pay for a single purchase. Who doesn’t love the savings?
Perfect example? The Tarte Lip Service LipSurgence Collection. This includes five full size lip tints for $29. Considering one tint will set you back $24 dollars why not get this set for $5 more….that’s FIVE for the price of nearly one.
I know many of you already tried the new Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm and didn’t really love ‘em. After a few reader’s mentioned Kissing Coolers in a prior post I did I had to go Google my past makeup life and look for photos of those lip balms.
So bloody 80′s! Do you remember them?
I guess you can say that Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm is one of the cuter, hipper products the brand has released in recent days. Don’t get me wrong they have really succeeded with their Eye Studio Collection but in regards to cute, hipster type of releases they aren’t nearly as inventive as they once were…can we haz petition to re-release Kissing Coolers?
Baby Lips has been making a few waves on the blogsphere as many bloggers got samples of the product during Fashion Week thus unleashing a wave of OMG you must try these moments. But Baby Lips isn’t technically a new product as it was released in certain parts of Europe and Australia early this year (not sure if Asia got these).
Each of these is a mere $2.99 and they promise to be a “clinical strength” lip balm. As far as I am concerned that kinda killed it for me, it’s a too big for your britches kinda moment. Top it off with “better looking lips”, “less dried out ones”, “more supple” ones…and it starts to overkill things…as why is it a mere $2.99 if it does all these AMAZING things?
I had to try for myself and see what the hype was about.
Maybelline recently released their new Color Sensational Pop Sticks to a great big hooray from me. I was so excited when I found a display of these at my local drugstore and to add to the boon of that discovery they were also marked at $4.79 each! Yay budget find!
Visions of a better budget versions of DuWop Iced Teas danced through my head.
But I’m a beauty junkie and therefore I have no loyalties to any one product so I’m always willing to try something new! Eep! How horrid of me to go cheating on Rosebud Salve but sorry the new Nuance Salma Hayek Rose Petal Hydrating Balm looked mighty interesting and it whispered at me to take it home since its on sale this week at CVS.
It didn’t take a whole lot of urging from the balm to actually get me to buy it….!
DuWop released three new IcedTeas Transulcent Lip Treatments with their Isla Sirena Collection. These aren’t a new idea by any means as DuWop had a tinted version that I reviewed in a prior post they are however, available in new, refreshing flavors.
Because I seriously need to get back down with The Walking Dead. ZOMBIES!
But bad news, Lauren Cohan will be in Season 2. Dude, that girl is everywhere. Supernatural, CIS: NY, Vampire Dairies, Chuck (the list goes on!) …she’s infiltrated all my favorite shows and she starting to annoy me. Stop it!
Speaking of zombies, naked lips…so damn hard to pull off without looking zombified. Granted, I don’t mind lookin’ like a Zombie. I said it before, I’ll say it again, Zombies are people too!
But really it was a long time ago…..back in the Fall of 2007, Lancome introduced the Mystery Game Collection which included an innovative lip balm called Baume Baiser. It was pretty much love at first application!
It’s long gone sadly but at least I have EOS Refreshing Lip Balms to keep my lips happy plus you know they are so much cheaper than Baume Baiser ever was!
