Lip treatment rewind/Keeping lips kissable

ELF Lip exfoliator
Tarte Maracuja Lip exfoliator
Laura Geller lip trip smoothing sugar scrub

Back in the day (:) I just used a soft toothbrush to exfoliate my lips so that my lipstick and glosses didn't look sickly. Although I can still use that particular way, using lip scrubs are so luxurious! From inexpensive ELF twist up tube exfoliator to the Tarte tin, these lip exfoliators are a pleasure to use. As for the ELF tube, it is very gritty and should be used with a light hand. The Tarte is the least gritty of the bunch and the Laura Geller sugar scrub is just right!

The ELF lip exfoliator can be obtained at Target and the other two are available at Sephora. Yes, the winter is when these are used the most, however; summertime swimming, sun and wind tend to chap my lips badly and I want to make sure they are soft and silky. Hey, my husband gets the benefit of lip care!!

What lip scrubs/exfoliators do you use? Do you have a favorite? Do tell! Sherry

Fall Lippie Rewind #lipstickmakesmesmile

#115 Whimsical Fantaste
#120 Whimsical Exuberant

Totally shopped my stash and out these came because they are perfect for this time of the year! Great berry and mauve colors are perfect and am loving rediscovering these!!!

Anyone who has read my blog knows that I am a lipstick junkie. Although I have seen these for some time and have so many lippie products to last until my last breath, I couldn't resist getting a couple of these. Primarily I love these because crayon type lippies are easy to carry, don't need a mirror and are just really fun!

I like bright cheery colors and these 2 are just that. I read somewhere (can't recall where) that a pink lip helps to brighten and make a mature face younger. I am not THAT old LOL but won't pass up the opportunity to lighten and make my face more youthful. These glide on smoothly, are fairly moisturizing and a couple of swipes give a beautiful pop of color. Unfortunately on me they don't last very long and I need to reapply fairly often.

They are available lots of places, I purchased mine at Walgreens. They also have them in matte, yet matte lips for me are a no no. My lips look old, dried out and feel weird :). If I do wear a matte I tend to put a pretty clear gloss over them which totally takes away the whole matte idea!

I do like these better than the Revlon Just Bitten sticks that came out several years ago.

Have you tried these? How do they hold up for you? Leave me a comment and thanks for stopping by my blog! Sherry

The Bite Beauty brand has made a permanent home in my makeup stash! Non-toxic, emollient and good for your lips, these lippies are everything I want them to be. Long lasting, hydrating (YES you read that right a matte lippie that is hydrating), beautiful colors and good for you as well. Seriously ladies, what more could you ask for in a lipstick? Sephora carries these beauties and if you too a stroll through past posts of mine you would see posts dedicated to lippies and my addiction thereof as well as BITE products that have rocked my world! For reals, ladies these are da bomb!

Fall colors and easy to carry in my scrubs pocket should I need to reapply, swoon! So haul butt to your nearest Sephora and have a look at the large range of colors. From your nude lippies to your brightest brights, they have a color for everyone pair of lips out there. Have you tried them yet? What are your thoughts? Do tell! Sherry

Urban Decay Body BB Cream

I have had this tube of goodness for a couple of months and forgot to post for ya'll. So after using it this week I was reminded to talk about it. Especially with the waning of summer and the cooler days ahead and a fading tan, this product is beautiful on legs, shoulders, decollete. There is a beautiful shimmery glow (although not disco ball shimmer) and a light fragrance. If you have used the UD Naked Skin then you have an idea how this product smells. The cream is thicker than normal lotion, glides on the skin smoothly and takes a few minutes to absorb. I love using this on my legs when I am wearing a skirt, shorts or a dress. There is a subtle glow to the area you apply. It looks like there is a pinky tan look to the lotion yet when you apply it seems to blend with your skin quite well.

The one thing I noticed is that it isn't very moisturizing per se, it feels more of a glow getter lotion than a true moisturizer. I found this out after using it on clean shaven legs! However, that hasn't stopped me from using it. I am utterly in love with the UD Naked Skin complexion perfectors and rarely take the time to really make an effort with my skin. This changed that as it is nice to have a glow that garners compliments and questions!

This is available at Sephora and Ulta and I can see this tube lasting me for some time as a little goes a long way! Have you tried this product? What are your thoughts on the UD Naked line? Do tell! Have a blessed week, Sherry

E-bay goodies

Ben Nye Banana Powder
Dior Addict Fluid Stick sample pack

Ohhh the hours I could spend browsing E-bay and the beauty and makeup items. I love looking for the inexpensive and even the luxurious items that I may never have gotten my mitts on in the normal course of the day. Sometimes there is a ridiculous price on items that I laugh off and others make me pause as I hit the send to cart button!

I have a very normal red complexion and using a correcting color or powder sure seems to help thus the purchase of the Ben Nye Banana powder. The cute little size with the sifter top is perfect for my purse and it is smoother than I thought it would be. It definitely helps that red face I might have mid day. The Dior Addict Fluid Stick samples were really because I have one color I bought of the full size and this sample pack has a couple of the other colors I would like to try before I think about splashing out the cash. Great way to try before I buy!

Are you an E-bay lurker? What beauty products have you found that made you squeal? Do tell! Sherry
