Here’s an insight into my makeup habit: I can use a lipstick like forever. Which means, I rarely buy new ones. I’m quite contented with using the same color every day. Is that boring? I suppose but I don’t really care. I used to buy and own more of them but over the years, I’ve lost interest in lipsticks. I realized that they’re quite a waste of money for me because I usually just end up using the one I like and then leaving the rest to collect dust. Anyway, I told you all of that so you’ll not be too surprised when I tell you that this Ecco Bella FlowerColor Lipstick in Pink Rose is the first lipstick I’ve bought this year.
I bought some new cosmetics from Naturisimo recently and scored this Trilogy Rosehip 100% Natural Tinted Lip Gloss for free. Isn’t the red so gorgeous? But being just a lip gloss, it doesn’t come out as a full red on my lips but just a hint of red. I realized that this product isn’t for sale at the moment but comes packaged as a bundle with the Trilogy Rosehip Oil. Looks like Trilogy is using this to test the makeup market but I wonder if anything more will come out of this.
All ladies love to stock their bags with lip balms before heading out and I’m sure most of you have more than one lip balm in your collection. Lip balms are sort of like a one-size-fit-all product that are great for moisturizing your lips to keep them from chapping. And lip balms like these from Crazy Rumor made from natural ingredients with delish flavors – they definitely make perfect handbag stuffers!
I have a case of occasional dry lips, and have never been able to ﬁnd a lip balm that is not only organic and safe, but also effective in moisturizing. I used to rely on vaseline based lip balms and had no idea they were further drying my lips and making me reliant on their products. And when I found out, I tried organic brands, but they often left a powdery texture on my lips after a while, and still, I see ﬂakes of skin chapped from my lips. So I sort of admitted defeat and settled for drinking lots of water to hydrate them from inside out instead. And then…Estelle & Thild lip balm came along!
