the one with all the lip stuff

So I don’t know if you can tell by my post title but… I was sick, and I took full advantage of the fact that Friends is now on Netflix. I am now grounded from watching any more episodes for a while, because I’ve got to start getting some stuff done! If only I knew how to do things in moderation……hmmm

I don’t know about you, but I swear I have the driest lips! Pretty much since I moved to Salt Lake I’ve had dry lips and dry cuticles. I have found a favorite solution and it’s the lip mask from Bite.  And currently they have a little set! For only $15 you get the lip exfoliator AND a mini lip mask (aka durable lip balm.) bite_lipI bought 2 sets, one for me and one for my kit. They were sold out when I went to purchase it so I selected the “email me when it’s back in stock” and the next morning Sephora emailed me, yay!

Speaking of lips, I thought I’d share some of my favorite lip colors with you guys as well!lips

#1 Urban Decay lip liner in Native applied all over the lips with Dior Gloss 257 Venus over the top.

#2 Urban Decay lip liner in Manic applied over 3/4 of the lips with a sheer application of MAC Lipstick in Myth topped with Bobbi Brown Crystal lipgloss.

#3 Urban Decay lip liner in Turn On with YSL Lipstick in Lingerie Pink 007 with Chanel gloss in Brilliance.

#4 I used the same products as I did in #2 just after you apply the gloss you’ll blot, then apply a bit more lipstick.

I tend to keep higher end products in my kit so that’s what I mostly end up using.  BUT on a recent Walmart excursion, I picked up THE prettiest baby pink/nude-ish lipstick made by Flower Beauty and the color was Morning Glory LS11. I’ll get some photos of it soon!

How about a nice lip-related quote for the day? Here’s a long time fave of mine:

    Is there a drugstore lip stain you recommend? You had mentioned to me how much you loved your new Armani stain, but it’s too expensive for me right now. Thanks!
