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!

IMG_0355

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!

IMG_0241

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!

IMG_0328

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!).

IMG_0329

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.

IMG_0298

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!

IMG_0297

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?

 

Heal your Luscious Lips!

IMG_0175Hey Lippie Loves!

I have reviewed this balm before and I’m here to do it AGAIN! Why? Because this balm is amazing! It is in my top ten best balms list! This is Luscious Lips By Dayna Gayle!

It’s all natural and vegetarian! The ingredients are: Coconut oil, vitamin e oil, shea butter, beeswax, peppermint oil and mica!

I know tins are not always the favorite because you have to use your finger but trust me this is worth having in your collection! The tin locks perfectly so it is safe for your purse. Which if you have this on you then you will have a best lip balm friend! Also the peppermint is so strong that it can help the fact you did not brush your teeth this morning. It has a cooling tingly sensation that I am addicted to.

Also the company states that this is a healing balm which I fully agree! My lips are so soft and “luscious” after wearing this. Highly recommend wearing this at night for extra insurance on the perfectly soft pout. The formula is medium weight, and the balm is firm but melts onto your lips.  Also it is good for healing minor scrapes and burns!  It has a lot of product as well, so you know it will be there for you for a while! She also carries this in vanilla mint and tinted!

I know what you are thinking, how can a peppermint balm be as good as I’m saying it is? isn’t mint balms just mint balms? No they aren’t and let me explain. The peppermint causes the cooling which I love! All of my mint balms (which I have tried many) very rarely ever smell the same. This product is a strong real peppermint nothing fake about this balm. I haven’t come across such a genuine version of peppermint and I love it! I think you will too!

Definitely recommend as I gave this in the past a 10/10 now I’m giving it 11/10! Which if you have seen my reviews is extremely rare! I’m really happy that this was in the LippieBox this month because it is so good!

Stay tuned for more!

 

 

February Box: For a Perfect V-Day!

Here it is! February’s Lippie Box!IMG_0230

Thank you so much to Mint Mongoose for the adorable kiss pearl earrings! They are so uniquely girly! Also these are not tiny so they are noticeable as they are meant to stand out!

IMG_0244

So in this box we have:

Luscious Lips by Dayna Gayle in peppermint! I have worked with this company before which means I have so many things to tell you all about regarding this product so keep your eye out for an in depth review! It smells amazing! It is part of my top ten best balm list! Her balms are all natural and vegetarian. The packaging is straight to the point but with a balm this good you really do not need a fancy look! I can not wait to tell you why this is in my top ten list!

IMG_0238

My Magical Star Cherry Kiss Lip Balm smells so good! Can I eat it please? Seeing as it is natural I probably could but I do not think I would like the taste as much as I do the scent! This lightweight balm is a little greasy which I normally do not like but it makes for a smooth shiny application so I enjoy it! I like the detail on the packaging with the cherry hanging from the side of her lips. As you can see in the photo the packaging is scratching off which I like for that vintage feel but I know that it is all going to come off. It only has five ingredients and I love the metallic red lid! Over all the scent is amazing you will be sniffing your lips constantly!

Beezy Beez Honey All natural soothing lip balm in the scent blue raspberry is a very strong raspberry scent that makes me think of a blue raspberry ice pop during a summer day! It is a very smooth almost lip butter consistency. There is cute little bees on the packaging carrying tiny pieces of honeycomb which is super cute. It is a paper label so when I opened mine it ripped a bit so I recommend being careful taking off the safety seal!

IMG_0173

Better Skin Co. Zit No More Acne Treatment: Something new and different has been brought to the Box! It’s Paraben, Surfactant, Gluten, and Vegan Free! I have not been able to test this product out yet as I do not get many pimples. The Tea Tree oil in it is extremely strong but I know that tea tree oil is a great tool in destroying those nasty zits! The packaging is beautiful, I love the detailing. This roll on application is for all skin types and genders!

The theme of this Box is Fantastic! You have the earrings to wear for valentine’s day, the balm options for kiss ready lips no matter what state they could be in, and the zit treatment to ensure you are at your highest level of confidence!

What did you think of the Box? Comment your thoughts!

 

 

 

 

January Box: Buzz, Balm, and Glo!

 

Hello my Lippie Loves! Here is a review of the entire January Lippie Box!

First off, the box is super cute, I love that it’s pink with the little smooch on the top. I enjoyed the little notecard that tells you about the products, where to find them, also how much they cost! I adore how everything is wrapped up so fancy!

My Magical Star Black Raspberry vanilla soap: These bring back memories of my first ever body care that I wore as a kid. It’s the same exact scent! They are soft, smooth, very sudsy and so cute as little kisses!

My Magical Star Vanilla Cream lip balm: Have you ever smelt vanilla bean ice cream the minute you open that glorious cover off the pint of ice cream? That’s exactly what this smells like! It’s a very smooth natural ingredient formula that is lightweight enough that you will forget you are wearing anything on your lips! But in a good way as it’s very moisturizing. The consistency creates a nice barrier without the heavy feeling.  I was very happy to see that the product in the tin is full to the brim which isn’t always the case with lip tins. If tins bother you because you don’t like to touch your lip balm I recommend investing in a lip brush. They work quite well and that way you don’t miss on the amazing flavors and formulas.  I truly enjoy this balm!

My Magical Star lip scrub in Raspberry: This is my favorite out of the box. Shocking, I know! But let me tell you why: IT SMELLS SO GOOD! It reminds me of Revo’s Raspberry Chocolate Truffle balm from 2015. I could smell it all day long! It’s not greasy or goopy, has very fine sugar (definitely not gritty.) It leaves my lips silky soft and smooth. For those who haven’t used a lip scrub before, this exfoliates your lips. It’s really great in the winter when your lips get dry and start peeling or really any time of year! All you do is rub it on in circular motions then wipe or rinse it off. Then done! You have your super soft kissable lips back!

Glo By Glory 12 hour semi matte liquid lipstick in Love Muffin: This is really fun to use being such a bold color! Read my in-depth review here!

Dr Bang’s Buzzing Lip Freak balm in Ginger-head Man: Some like this balm, some can’t handle the buzz. I used to be unable to handle it. But check out my review of it here to read what changed my mind! If you struggle with liking it, definitely  get excited to read my review – it might cause you to re-think it too!

Comment below telling me what you got in your LippieBox!

Lip Freak? Here’s the Buzz!

Photo Jan 29, 9 00 39 PM

Hey there Lippie Loves! Here is the scoop on all the buzz about this balm!

Doctor Lip Bang’s Lip Freak is here to freak your lips out! It’s an all-natural lip balm in the scent Ginger-head man. When on your lips, the ginger scent is at comfortable volume that everyone can enjoy! It’s a noticeable scent that will have you sniffing your lips. Also has a taste of ginger if you lick your lips or happen to kiss someone. The brand also states it’s a fun kissing balm as well! 😉

This has a very sturdy cap so no worries of it opening on you! It carries a circus like feel to the packaging with the words “Lip Freak” dressed in marquee lights. It’s very moisturizing, has high shine with a smooth, soft, medium weight consistency.

Now, this balm claims to be “THE STRONGEST BUZZ BALM IN THE WORLD!” Which I’m here to say is true! This isn’t my first rodeo with this brand mind you. If you come from my Instagram account and have been around for a while, you would know this. I had the Bubble Trouble balm and innocently lathered this on. My lips couldn’t take the heat causing me to hate the balm although I really liked the scent!

With that knowledge, I went in a tad bit daintier which caused me to end up liking it. Putting on a lot of this product is not for the weak at heart as this balm knows how to buzz!
There is nothing like this product on the market that I’ve ever seen. It’s very unique! Definitely recommend trying it!
Also just a side note, in the ingredients list it states it has almond oil and cinnamon oil in it so if you’re allergic to either, just be warned.
Stay tuned for more reviews!

Oh Glo by Glory!

Hello my Lippie Loves! Here is a Review of Glory’s Glo 12 hour semi-matte liquid lipstick in the shade “Love Muffin”  which is a blue based Cherry Red. (Click here to shop!)

First off the packaging is super cute with the little hearts and it says “Glo Stix” on it which is a cute little pun! I like that there are instructions on the side of the box for newbies like me to understand how to use this! It’s cruelty-free, also comes with .14oz of product.
Now I’m not sure why it calls itself a semi-matte because it’s extremely matte once it dries! This is also a shade I could see working for most skin tones!

When I followed the instructions of using a balm first then doing a second layer to intensify the color, I had problems. It was super messy getting all over me including my teeth and somehow under my chin! Also with the second layer it would come off very easily when eating, drinking, or when I kissed my hand to test it.

So here is what you do to make it work: the balm is optional, if you do use balm use a lightweight formula and do NOT put on a second layer of the liquid lipstick. Yes it gives it a nice darkened shade but it will come off whereas the first coat is perfectly pigmented and mess free!
It does feel a little sticky even when it’s dried but it becomes fully matte to a beautiful color that doesn’t feather in its process of drying.   The blue tone to this shade ensures your teeth will not give off a yellow sheen.  Also it’s such a statement shade everyone will notice! I got a lot of compliments when wearing this. I used a lip balm over it to help the removing of the color from my lips which left a nice stain on my lips for a hint of color.

Overall it’s a great color to spice up your day or night plus it is easy to carry in your purse!

Stay tuned for more reviews from me!
