Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter

This is one of my staple spring lipsticks. I love the idea of a lip butter, which is very moisturizing and makes your lips look nice and plump. It's incredibly easy to wear and is moderately pigmented, making it great for daytime. This is also a very glossy lipstick, leaving a brilliant shine without having to apply gloss.

The color above is #50 Berry Smoothie. It's the perfect pink for any look. It's subtle enough for school or work, but gives your face a pop of color when a nude just won't do. I find myself reaching for this color on fairly monochromatic days when a red or orange would clash with my outfit.

This lipstick can be purchased wherever Revlon products are found (bartells, ulta, etc.)

Don't forget to comment on other things you'd like to see on this blog and Happy Tuesday everyone!

Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick

My first post! Yay!

Slowly, but surely, the days are in fact getting warmer. With the beginning of April upon us, I think we can all agree that spring is officially here. Thus, dark lipsticks are going back into the depths of my makeup box until next season, and being replaced with pinks, corals, and the occasional orange. It's time for lighter and brighter colors!

One of my favorite everyday lip balms is the Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick (if you continue to follow this blog you will soon discover that I am obsessed with all things Neutrogena). I absolutely love how pigmented this product is considering it is a balm, not a lipstick. It is also extremely moisturizing, which is great because I don't find myself reapplying because my lips are chapped. I generally find myself reapplying once a day, which speaks to how long lasting it is.

This is not a brand that makes crazy colored products, thus the colors range from nudes to subtle pinks to reds. The above color is #20 Fresh Papaya and is a nicely colored pink that is perfect for a casual spring day. It's bright enough to give your face that pop of color, while muted enough for school or the office.

Another great thing about this product is that you can purchase it almost anywhere in the US. Most drug stores, such as Bartell Drugs, carry Neutrogena products, along with Target and Ulta Beauty. You can also purchase directly from the company at www.neutrogena.com.

In case the title wasn't clear enough, this will be a blog about my obsession with lipsticks, lip balms, lip stains, etc. For now, I will try to post once a week and stick strictly to lip related items. Please leave comments about anything else you'd like to read about (fashion, hair, other beauty products) and I'll be happy to incorporate them!

Happy Thursday :)
