It's no secret that I'm a big fan of a good tube of lipstick. A bold lip is my favorite way to "accessorize" these days...I've always found the best of the best drug store beauty products (my faves can be found here and here), but for the first time in a while - I splurged on two products that I just couldn't keep to myself. They're totally game changers!
1. Stila lipstick - First, is a lipstick that is liquid, matte and ACTUALLY stays on. I love my lip tar, but I love that this one has a built in applicator and I don't have to wash the brush over and over, or when I need to switch the colors. This stay all day lipstick by Stila (I'm wearing the shade, Carina) is my new fave. I applied at 11 AM, ate lunch around noon, and it still was vibrant ,nor had it smeared. Tip: remove excess on the top like you do with mascara. The applicator works best when the sponge isn't completely saturated with the lipstick. A little goes a long way.
2. Lip strip - Ever decide to just go with chapstick because a bold color looks weird on your dry lips? No more. This lip sugar scrub was gentle, moisturizing and minty. The result was a smooth lip, ready for a bold lip.
