March Box: Pot of Gold!

Hello my Lippie Loves!

The March Lippie Box has come! I seriously can not get over the actual box packaging, it is adorably packaged up! I feel spoiled every month when I receive it!

Inside it contains:

A Lip balm Holder with four leaf clovers! When I first saw these coming out I did not believe they could actually hold my lip balm without falling out. But it does! So I am very excited about! Also the pattern is super cute! The clip is sturdy as well!

Taste Beauty NYC Lipstick in Mauve: I never wear lipstick, but this lipstick is so easy to use I have no problems! (I will explain more later, I recommend not missing this review!) It is a beautiful nude color for me, it is a tad more pink than my natural lip color which I love about it. The packaging is simple but the rose gold is beautiful! I was shocked that Taste Beauty came out with a lipstick and I’m very impressed with the quality! It is a bit drying so be sure to use one of the balms for extra moisture! I will be doing an in depth review on this one for sure!

Balm Daddy Legend balm in Green Apple Passion fruit: I have worked with Balm Daddy before so I really like their balms. They just took it to the next level with…everything! The packaging is so uniquely unisex, I love the look! All of their scents are out of the box. Green Apple Passion fruit is different, very tart with both perfectly blended together! I smell mostly Green Apple but Passion fruit is holding on tight so it will not be missed! There is not another balm like this one in my collection. It is a firm balm that has is a little waxy but it is very moisturizing. Has a great barrier to protect your pout from the harsh weather. I like this one so I bought the rest of their line!

Bebe Bartoon Frog in Creamsicle: The detail to the packaging is amazing, right down to the little feet having individual toes! I have no idea which way he is looking but whatever is he is doing he is very happy about it! The scent is very strong with a tint of sheer orange. I enjoyed the cute heart design on top, oops sorry I used mine and worn it off! If you really like this design but you have used up your balm you can always buy more lip pods to replace the old one!

Lavee Nutri-Pure Lip Balm: This does not list a scent but it smells like raspberry! It is very creamy, has high shine, is in between medium and light weight formula. It is organic with readable ingredients that is meant to fix fine lines on your lips while moisturizing them! It is comfortable to wear which would be perfect underneath any lipstick! I love the professional looking packaging, it is gorgeous! This is one of my favorites out of this month’s box. You will definitely have beautiful healthy lips after using this!

This box in my mind was definitely a pot of gold! What did you think?

Zit, Zit, Zap! Better Skin

Hello Fellow Lippie Loves!

I really enjoy that fact that LippieBox incorporates other beauty related products not just lip balms. I do my best to take great care of my lips but also I want to take care of the rest of my skin. Especially when getting rid of those pesky pimples! Using a more natural way is definitely something I am interested in!

I have seen Better Skin on Instagram in the past before and am blown away by their gorgeous packaging. It’s colorful, not over powering but also to the point. It retails for $18 for this 2oz glass roller that is for all skin types. Let’s pop into the review!

Say Hello to your new Best friend!

This has tea tree leaf oil, rose hip, Tung wood, rapeseed oil, vitamin e acetate and rosewood oil in it along with salicylic acid ( 1%)  Zit No More is paraben free, surfactant free, gluten free and Vegan! Also more importantly, it is cruelty free!

This roller acne treatment has a very strong earthy scent, I can definitely smell the tea tree leaf oil! Tea tree oil is known for it’s powers of destroying pimples pretty quickly. So I was excited to try this out! Also my mother was as well, in fact at one point she took it from me!

Zit No More applies smoothly and with ease. It helped my skin within a few days those hideous bumps were gone! The product is a liquid which makes it easier to use. Also this does not sting as some acne treatments can. It is completely clear but also doesn’t leave a weird residue on your skin. I have had treatments in the past that would dry causing a glue like noticeable look to it. NOT CUTE! But this does not do that at all! Yay! Also as it says on their website, start using once daily then slowly work up to 2-3 times if needed. If you start applying too often at the beginning in can dry your skin out. It is recommended to consult a doctor about using any form of acne treatment before hand! Always good to check in and make sure.

Better Skin is now sold in Ulta which will make it more convenient to pick up more of these! The size of the treatment is perfect for a purse, vacation bag, or a locker! This treatment was a definitely win in my Box!

Now we are ready to face the world, one less pesky pimple at a time!

 

Taste Beauty: Taste Lipstick?!

IMG_0327Hello my Lippie Loves!

WARNING: DO NOT EAT, THE TITLE IS JUST A PLAY ON WORDS, thank you.

Today’s Topic is: Taste Beauty NYC Lipstick in Mauve!

Taste Beauty NYC has created their first lipstick! This company is well known for the Fidget Spinner Lip gloss, the flamingo lip gloss that was exclusively at Sephora, and their French Bull Dog lip balm! They are definitely creative for sure, their packaging always grabs my attention. That is why I was a bit surprised that this packaging is very basic although the rose gold color is beautiful! I also like that I can see the lipstick color at the bottom through the acrylic.

Real quick story! I have a friend who is makeup obsessed and when I told her that I was wearing a lipstick she was shocked! Then when I explained I was super excited about it when I saw this product which I now love; She literally said “OMG Has an alien taken you over? Who are you?” This is so not me. I avoid lipstick like it is a disease because I usually struggle with applying it and end up looking like the joker’s twin sister. (no he does not have one I made that up…I think) so back to the review!

It smells like the average lipstick makeup scent, you know what I am talking about I know you do!

The color is gorgeous! It is a pink mauve, slightly more pink than my natural lip color which I love for days I do not want a bold lip (which is most days if I am being honest!).

The creamy feeling formula is a bit drying as are most lipsticks so I recommend applying a really good lip balm before putting this on! Of course the more you add to your lips the more noticeable it becomes. This is not kiss proof so yes it does transfer, during eating, drinking, the usual things of life so keep it with you! I feel like that is the case with every average lipstick I have tried unless they have stated otherwise. Also it does show the lines in your lips, be sure to use a lip scrub before hand as well! For the price though ($5.00) it is totally worth it! I hope they come out with more colors in this formula!

This is NOT tested on animals and is gluten free! Which I fully enjoy supporting. I have already worn this at least six times since I received this! That is huge seeing as a month ago I was not a fan of lipstick. Thank you LippieBox and Taste Beauty for providing the chance to change my mind about lipstick!

Bebe Bartoons: Kissed by a Frog

Hey there Lippie Loves!

In this year’s March Box a cute baby frog decided to hop on in! He sure appears quite happy about it too! Two young entrepreneurs created this little fellow right down to his tiny toes! I really enjoy seeing the next generation starting their own businesses, very inspiring!

Alright so on with the in-depth review! Ribbit

The detailing is insane, from his happy smile to his separated toes, to the lime green coloring! I adore how you can not tell which direction he is looking at with his big eyes as well.

If you are coming from my Instagram page, you would already know that I also have their beautiful unicorn balm. Although I really adored the packaging, I was unimpressed with the balm itself. Because the scent was not as described (but I still enjoyed it!) and the balm was very waxy which felt drying and uncomfortable to my lips. I received a lot of comments on my review saying that I should try other ones. From what I gleaned from my followers was that the unicorn is the only one with that formula. To my surprise this formula is as they explained, completely different!

The consistency is lightweight, a little greasy but the scent is fantastic! This is orange Creamsicle which is exactly what it smells like! The orange and vanilla got married to a perfect blend of yum! Also this frog has a slight tint of orange because the color is so intense! I do not find it to be the most moisturizing balm but it is super cute. Of course you may have a different experience than me in this regard! There is not a lot of product in this but because it is so lightweight it should last a while. It is easy to open and it clicks right in place so you do not have to worry about it in your purse or backpack!

They do have other animals such as a panda, bulldog, and penguin so it is easy to find your favorite creature! Also they have replacement pods for you to add to your existing container or mix up the scent! You can also pop out the balm when you finish to use it to hold jewelry or perhaps earbuds. Good ideas for a school locker or a vacation trip!

What did you think of your Bebe Bartoon?
