I am a huge fan of both Burt’s Bees and Pumpkin Spice so a few years ago when I discovered the Burt’s Bees Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm I was hooked! Although this flavor can be a bit elusive. I found this one at Wal-Mart this year and I saw that Amazon has them. However they appear to be in short supply.
What’s to love?
I love that the Burt’s Bees Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm is 100% natural and it smells amazing without being overpowering. It keeps my lips nice and hydrated even on the coldest days. It’s one of my favorite lip balms!
The POGO Lip Balm looks like something out of the 80’s with a transparent colorful top and rubber bottom. The design of this one is so awesome!
Aside from the cool packaging it comes in 6 flavors at Ulta including:
My Party – Vanilla Cake
De-Lish – Pineapple Citrus
Atmosphere – Clean Mint
Beach Wave – Coconut
Trainwreck – Strawberry Banana
I got the My Party – Vanilla Cake and it smells and tastes amazing, just like cake! It has Organic Hemp Seed Oil, Fair Trade CertifiedTM Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil and a bunch of other organic ingredients.
According to very cool their site they are USDA Organic, Cruelty Free and Gluten Free. According to POGO they’ve composed the cleanest, greenest, most delectably potent lip balm on the planet.
I really loved the formula which is smooth and my lips feel pretty amazing after using it and I really, really love the packaging!
I also included the POGO Lip Balm (although I keep going it lip gloss) in my Ulta Haul video for today!
ChapStick has a really cool new product available called the ChapStick DUO and it’s similar in shape to the EOS lip balm.
What’s to love?
The ChapStick DUO comes in Sweet Peach, Strawberry Kiwi, Tropical Pineapple, Refreshing Watermelon, Fresh Coconut, Vanilla Shimmer, Cool Mint and Berry Shimmer. I have the Refreshing Watermelon and it smells amazing.
The DUO part comes into play when you snap two flavors together which I just found out from the website. This way you can carry two flavors in one unit which is kind of cute.
The egg shaped top makes the lip balm very easy to apply and the formula is smooth and moisturizing.
Overall I like the new shape and I’ll probably pick up and flavor so that I have a proper DUO!
First I have to say that I don’t consider the Almay Smart Shade Butter Kiss a lipstick but more of a lip balm or gloss. It has an angled flat top that twists up from the metallic tube and the packaging is quite pretty. The top of the case is transparent but very hard to open. I actually had to use my teeth to pull it off.
I really liked the product itself. I chose the Berry Shade for Light-Medium skin (Almay is tailoring their shades by skin type now) and it’s a pale pink on my lips.
The formula has a light shimmery glossy finish that’s pack with moisture but not sticky. My lips felt very soft and smooth with it on however this is not a highly pigmented or long lasting product. I got about 2 hours of wear before I had to reapply. It also came off on my water glass.
It does have a nice very light sugar/vanilla scent an but no taste. The lipstick is Hypoallergenic and Dermatologist Tested as is the entire Almay line.
Overall I liked this product and would buy it again. It comes in 12 shades. The price is $3.49 which I think is a great value too.
Oh my gosh! I just went to Target and it’s an Easter wonderland. I actually had to sneak past a 6 foot palette of Peeps to snag some of these beauty Easter finds. I have to say that I’m a bit crazy about holiday themes and this stuff was so much fun to buy. I’ve got some great Easter gifts now and a few things for myself.
SinfulColors Nail Polish in Easter Shades – I picked up 3 pretty Easter shades including Havana Great Time, 24/7 and Cash Out.
Katy Katy Matte in Cosmo Kitty – I’m not sure this is the right shade for me but I really like this Easter purple shade from the Katy Perry line.
Lip Smacker Easter Egg 3-Pack -This is so adorable! You get 3 scents of Lip Smackers including Whipped Mallow, Cotton Candy Day Dream and S’More Fun in a pink and clear plastic egg.
Lip Smacker Disney Tsum Tsum Collect and Stack Animal – This cute little guy was in the Easter section. It’s Kooky Oatmeal Cookie flavor inside this little critter.It also comes in Chocolate Chip, Cheer Up Butter Cup and Caramel Kisses.
So there you have it! Some cool ideas for your 2017 Easter Baskets. I also showed these products off in a YouTube Haul! I deviated a little bit from beauty and included some Easter Candy that I found at Target, I just could not resist. Their Easter finds are so cute and I really needed some Cadbury Cream Eggs and Oreo Peeps! Enjoy.
