Hard Candy Mouthing Off Lip Shine Review

Hard Candy Mouthing Off Lip Shine

Weekly Cheap Secret:

I remember when Hard Candy was sold at department stores and Sephora. I liked the line and I owned a few of the lip glosses, eyeshadows, blushes. Hard Candy disappeared and then came back…to Wal-Mart. I wonder what terrible thing Hard Candy did in its previous life to be reincarnated and carried exclusively by Wal-Mart. Oh, well.

I’m reviewing Hard Candy Mouthing Off Sheer Lip Shine in Prom Queen.

Hourglass Aura Sheer Lip & Cheek Stain Review

Hourglass Aura Lip & Cheek Stain
no flash

I am a fan of Hourglass Cosmetics. I’m impressed with the line’s formula and color choices. I’m also a fan of lip and cheek stains so I was delighted when Hourglass launched Aura Sheer Lip and Cheek Stain.

Weekly Cheap Secret: Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer Tinted Lip Color in Nutmeg

I love the Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer Tinted Lip Balms because they actually have pigment. They are a great lipstick replacement. They have that minty tingle of the original Burt’s Bees lip balm. I’m a lipstick kind of gal. However, my lips usually get really chapped in the cold. Pigment rich red lipstick does not cover chapped lips very well. Instead it looks like smearing pigment on to the shedded skin of a Bearded Dragon. Everytime my lips get all messed up looking, I use an intensive treatment at night and during the… Continue reading | 5 Comments
