Mouth Full of Gold

First she rocked the Blue Pout, not she’s showing off her Gold tooth. Serious, what will Ke$ha do next? I’m all about gold, but not in my mouth. It’s something Flava Flav would be proud off. This style hopefully will not return. What will she do next?

Pretty Soon Lip Gloss

SunLove recently sent me a great new lip gloss. It’s from Pretty Soon and the color is Bella Rosa. The gloss goes on smooth, isn’t sticky yet stays put for quite a while. This color is the perfect transition from summer to fall. It’s in between fuchsia and red; making it the perfect rosey finish. I’d say this gloss is high quality. Word is there’s also a nude shade, which I’ve yet to try.

***I’m currently getting more information on the lip gloss. I’ll let you guys know soon where you can find it and for how much***

Exfoliate Your Lips

 

Your lips need to be pampered just as much as any other part of the body. We don’t only have to worry about them being chapped in the winter, but the sun does some damage to them as well. While at the beach I obsessed over protecting my skin from the sun and didn’t give much thought to my lips. Later in the day I paid the price for my mistake. My lips felt a little sunburned and I had to constantly apply lip balm to ease the discomfort. Smoother lips can be achieved from the comfort of your home.

Every night I exfoliated my lips. You can use any lip exfoliator. I love how Kiss Me Exfoliating Lip Scrub from Philosophy works. You just leave it on for up to 3 minutes and wah-lah smooth lips.  

Burt’s Bees lip balm is minty and has an SPF 15. It’s a good year-round chapstick.

Be A Savvy Shopper

Shopping doesn’t have to empty out your pockets completely. In this economy, being a bit of a savvy shopper will come in handy. We are led to believe that, because a product costs more it will work best. It might take a little extra browsing time but, hey, who doesn’t want to take their time when it comes to shopping?

Putting on a pretty face shouldn’t cost you tons. Take the NARS Highlighting/Bronzing Blush Duo for example. This is a combination of their most popular blush and bronzer and retails for $39. E.L.F. is like the dollar menu of make-up. All of their products are under five dollars. They have an almost identical product, the Contouring Blush & Bronzer Powder for only three dollars. Talk about a steal!

Hair care is also important. When your hair looks bad it can throw an entire outfit off. While there are so many products promising healthy hair, they can be a bit costly at times. Suave offers a collection of affordable hair products. Their shampoo and conditioner for damaged hair renewal is only two dollars a bottle. Best of all you get the same results from Suave as you would from salon brand products.

Let’s not forget our nails. Nail polish is our way of dressing them up. Essie and O.P.I. colors are vibrant and never lacking in color options. But, really, who wants to spend eight to $10 on nail polish? N.Y.C has a collection of all the hottest colors this season, and they’re only $1.99 each.

Before dropping down a wad of cash on your next product, channel your inner savvy shopper and browse for the affordable version.
