I'm addicted to lip products. I have more than one girl can possibly use before the best before date, but I can't kick the habit! My latest lip loves smell amazing and are perfect for summer. The unique tube designs are just as fabulous as the innovative products.
I'm a HUGE fan of Dior Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm. I have been using this balm for years. The original 001-Pink Glow is a pale pink balm that enhances your natural lip color. When Dior launched this product, it was impossible to get them, so I purchased five Lip Glow balms at time. I gave them to everyone I knew!
The Lip Glow lineup has expanded and I'm obsessed with the new Lip Glow To The Max balm. It is the first balm from Dior's Backstage Collection to feature the original glow and color. The color reviver enhances your natural lips and the pearlescent pigments bring your glow to a new level.
I'm a fan of coral shades - it goes best with my sun-kissed skin and black hair. I purchased the Dior Lip Glow To The Max in 204-Coral. I love everything about this balm. The scent is delicious, like a sweet candy cane. The two-color swirl is brilliant and the color is vibrant. This shade is a light coral/pink and has a slight shimmer. Perfect for no-makeup (but I'm wearing makeup) days.
This balm smells great, looks good and nourishes your lips. Lip Glow To The Max is the perfect summer lip balm and enhancer in one.
Another cute lip product is Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Plump-in-Color Plumping Lip Balm. I've been a fan of Yves Saint Laurent's Volupté collection for a while and love the new heart embellished lip plumper. I'm a self-proclaimed lip pluming addict! The only thing I won't do for a full-pout look is use one those strange suction lip plumping contraptions - looks dangerous! Back to plumping balms..
Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Plump-in-Color Plumping Lip Balm nourishes your lips - the silky texture glides on like oil, giving you high-shine look. I purchased 4-Exposing Coral. It's the perfect subtle (high-shine) shade of coral.
This balm contains peppermint oil and tingles a little when you apply it. As far as plumbers go, it's on the subtle side, but the pretty shade and shine make your lips appear hydrated and fuller.
The scent is amazing - like minty watermelon. This balm has landed a permanent spot in my handbag.
Another must-have Yves Saint Laurent Volupté lip product is the Heart & Arrow Collector Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick. This gorgeous bright cajun coral lipstick is limited edition. It has the same silky (oily) texture as the other Volupté lip products - High-shine with more color.
I love the packaging. YSL Volupté lip products all don the same decorative lipstick tube, but this one has a heart & arrow print. YSL Volupté lip products are super nourishing, leave your lips feeling soft and give you the perfect high-shine pout.
Another one of my favorite brands is Too Faced. This cosmetic brand is fun, high-quality and always launching innovative products. The Peaches and Cream Collection is delicious! I purchased the Peach Mega Moisture Lip Balm and then had to have the Peach Lip Scrub. This exfoliating lip scrub is gentle and effective. Your lips will feel soft and rejuvenated. The peaches and cream scent is sweet and yummy!
If you want a pouty look, buff your lips first, get the circulation flowing, apply a lip balm and then color. If you want super-plumped lips, purchase the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme. This stuff reigns supreme!
These four products are at the top of my summer 2019 lip products must-have list. Coral is always going to be the perfect shade for summer lips and this season is more natural and light than the others, so opt for light lip products that enhance your natural lips. Buff, hydrate and add a little color..

I'm a self-proclaimed lip balm addict and am always looking for a Sephora Kiss Me Balm replacement. YEAH, Sephora discontinued my long-time favorite and I have yet to find another supreme lip balm. A few have come close, but there are some products you just cant replace. SO the lip balm section in my Cosmocube continues to grow..
On the list - Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Stick in peach and colorless AND one of my favorite cosmetic brands, Too Faced Peach Lip Balm.
If you like the scent of peach, you're gonna love this lip treatment - Too Faced Peach Lip Balm smells delicious AND taste kinda yummy too! The peaches and cream infused balm is light-medium weight, non-sticky and super nourishing. I prefer a stick over a pot (there's something about sticking your fingers in the product that turns me off), BUT the texture and scent make up for the less than desirable packaging. I just wanna eat it - well, I don't want to eat lip balm, but the scent is inviting.
I got these Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Sticks at Revolve and I am impressed. The texture is light-weight, creamy and creates a full-coverage film over your lips. The scent is nothing to write home about, but it ain't gross either. The peach color is little orange for me - I apply it under pink lipstick for a peachy lip look. The colorless balm is perfect for daily wear, a lipstick foundation or just a little nourishment.

Lipstick, lip balms, lip exfoliators, lip treatments.. I'm addicted to lip'stuff'! It's not even possible to use everything in my giant Cosmocube, but I just cant help myself. My latest lip loves are the perfect summer shades and a new nourishing balm.
Too Faced quickly became one of my favorite cosmetic brands this year. I purchased everything from the Peach collection and now I'm addicted. This Too Faced Peach Beach lipstick is the perfect coral shade. The color enhances sun-kissed skin and gives a pop of flirty, summer color. It's not bright (or florescent - like some), but rather a subtle coral.
The creamy product glides on nicely and feels like it's nourishing your lips. The scent is kinda strange and off-putting (oh, and it lingers). I think they were going for a peach scent, but I'm confused by the outcome? Albeit, I still love the color and the texture is nice.
The packaging is attractive, solid and goes well with my Pat McGrath Labs Lip Fetish Lip Balm..
Since Sephora discontinued my favorite Kiss Me lip balm, I've been on the hunt for a balm just a good (it's been a struggle). I've purchased a few great ones, but everything pales in comparison to the Kiss Me Balm.
Pat McGrath Labs Lip Fetish Lip Balm is definitely a contender for the favorite title. The packaging is great, solid and I love the gold-tone lips embellishment. The barely-there scent is subtle (I like that). The balm is creamy (I can feel a little wax), lightweight and feels nice. It's lighter than most balms I've tried, but you can feel the product on your lips.
The Sephora Collection #lipstories lipstick lineup currently consist of 40 thoughtfully packaged shades in matte, metallic and satin finish. I love the decorative tubes. They're small and each one dons art representing adventures around the world. The packaging itself seems a little cheap, but don't be fooled - the lipstick is good quality.
I'm a nude, peach and coral lipstick kinda girl. I rarely sway from my go-to shades, but if you love trying new colors, this collection is perfect. The lipsticks are inexpensive and small. You won't feel terrible if you dislike the color and toss it.
I purchased satin finish 03 OUI! (cream finish) and 06 Tan Lines (cream finish). These shades are perfect for my skin tone. They are lightweight and still give you full-coverage. 03 OUI! is a pale rose tone and 06 Tan lines is more nude with a little hint of peach. The lipstick goes on nicely and doesn't dry out your lips. I always apply a nourishing lip balm minutes before applying lipstick (you should try this method).
Both lipsticks have a fruity scent, so I'm assuming they all do. I'm not a scented lipstick fan, but could it be worse and smell like flowers! YES, they're are floral scented lipsticks! YUCK!
I'm a fan of the Sephora Collection #lipstories lipstick collection. Sephora - PLEASE stop discontinuing our favorites and bring back the Kiss Me Balm!
Lipstick, lip balms, lip exfoliators, lip treatments.. I'm addicted to lip'stuff'! It's not even possible to use everything in my giant Cosmocube, but I just cant help myself. My latest lip loves...
I'm addicted to lip products - balms, slaves, lipstick and plumbers. My 'enhanced' lips are, well, a little pouty and super plumped, so I choose muted shades of coral and nude to minimize the lip drama. Red lips would not look good on me - It would be like lips wearing a face! I don't think my dermatologist would allow me to inject more filler, so I opt for plumbers, exfoliating products and super nourishing balms to keep my lips oh-so-pouty.
Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Tint-in-balm is a hybrid lipstick-balm with sheer color. I love the lip-shaped balm center inside the creamy lipstick and the pomegranate scent is addictive. I like color 3 - Call Me Rose (bubblegum pink). It's subtle and slightly glossy. This Tint-in-balm is perfect for those no-makeup-makeup days.
Niki's Nude lipstick by M.A.C Cosmetics is my new favorite shade. The soft corally-pink is perfect on my pale skin tone. I apply balm to nourish, and then Niki's Nude lipstick. This lipstick is creamy and glides on nicely. Both Niki Minaj lipsticks by M.A.C Cosmetics can be found in the 'goodbye' section and are on sale.
Lip exfoliators are amazing for removing dry skin, nourishing AND making your lips appear bigger. The slightly aggressive circular motion of exfoliating and tiny grains increase the blood flow - this increases the volume of your lips and make them appear naturally rosier. I recommend you exfoliate your lips two to three times per week.
I recently purchased Lip Scrubtious by M.A.C Cosmetics - partially because I was in a 'M.A.C mood', but mostly due to the name. The sweet vanilla scent is delicious and the product tastes yummy. I'm not suggesting you eat your lip exfoliators, but it's gonna get in your mouth, so choosing a tasty exfoliator is necessary.
Lip Scrubtious is gentle - much less aggressive than my other go-to exfoliators. I use this sugar-based lip product everyday. This lip exfoliator is available in five flavors - Candied Nectar, Fruit of Passion, Summer berry, Sweet Brown Sugar and Sweet Vanilla.
KNC Beauty Collagen Infused Lip Masks are super fun. There are five masks in a package, so you can share (maybe). These all-natural, jelly-like lip masks moisturize your lips, and well, they're just fun to use. Apply the squishy mask to your lips and relax for 15-20 minutes. These lip masks are great for a lazy night of pampering.

I'm addicted to lip balm and was so disappointed when Sephora discontinued the Kiss Me Balm - the little egg shaped balm came in a many colors, the scents were yummy and the product was amazing. So began my search for a new go-to balm.. Of course, I went with a Sephora lip balm hoping it would be similar to the Kiss Me Balm. The soothing Coconut Water Lip Balm is nice. The scent is delicious and the product feels nourishing on your lips. The balm is thicker than the Kiss Me Balm, but a similar texture. The packaging is less than what you would expect from Sephora. The turn-tube is made of plastic, and the coconut printed cover feels like card-stock. I'm not sure how the packaging would hold if it got wet (and am not gonna test it out).
Sephora Honey Lip Scrub is amazing! When I first applied the scrub, I thought this isn't working - how can a balm exfoliate your lips. After a few vigorous applications I reached the grains inside. I rub the balm in circular motions on my lips until they're drenched in product, then I use my finger and massage the grains onto my lips. The result - smooth lips in seconds. Best part is the gains dissolve, and your lips are covered in a creamy, honey-scented balm. It tastes good too - not that you should eat it, but scrubs tend to get in your mouth. LOVE!
Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Double the Lip Lipstick Liner in One is innovative, and allows you to create fuller lips in one swipe. The teardrop shaped lipstick and liner in one combines two complimentary satin-finish shades - one is the liner and the other a lipstick. Just place the lipstick and liner in one flat on your lips, and apply them simultaneously. I find the contrast between the colors a bit too much, so I blend with my finger. The result is gorgeous. I purchased the full-sized Criminally Coral and received the Lusty Rose travel-sized as a gift with purchase. The sandy-coral shade of Criminally Coral looks great on my pale skin (I'm a fan of coral) . I'm sure the Criminally Coral shade would look amazing on sun kissed skin. The neutral shade of Lusty Rose is a dark rose shade (not really my color). The lipstick and line run one feels nice, your lips appear fuller and there's no feathering. Definitely a New Lipstick 'LOVE'.
Oh and the Sephora Kiss Me Balm in Creme Brûlée (clear) appears to be temporarily back in stock, and it's on sale. I bought eight!

I'm obsessed with Kiss Me Balm by Sephora, and am super bummed that they discontinued it. Yeah, I stocked up before they sold out, but I've been on a mission to find a new favorite. Just posted and already out of stock, the Bobbi Brown Extra Lip Tint is AMAZING (and officially my new favorite). The barely-there color blends with your natural lip color and gives a subtle pink shade that enhances your own lips. The creamy texture goes on nicely and nourishes your lips. I like the packaging - the tube is a bit smaller than the average lipstick and the pearl white case is chic.
Anytime the conversation of best lip enhancers comes up, I'm shouting TOO FACED LIP INJECTION EXTREME from the rooftop! This lip plumper will give you the ultimate pouty lip. Lip Injection Extreme isn't new, but now there's a mini version (LOVE).
The Sephora Lip Color Lip Last Lipstick in Oh My Beige! and Sephora Rouge Gel Lip Liner in The Nudest are a match made in nude lips heaven. The gel-cream texture of the liner glides on smoothly and the nude shade matches my lips perfectly. The liner is retractable, so no sharpening and no shavings. The Lip Last Lipstick is oh so creamy. The color is a bit lighter than I'd like but combined with 'The Nudest' lip liner create the perfect nude lip shade. Strawberry Short Cake is back and channelling her scent through Lip Last Lipsticks! The scent is amazing (and addictive). It really does smell like my favorite childhood doll. I will definitely purchase more Lip Last Lipsticks and Gel Lip Liners..
