One of the perks of having a beauty blog is that I get free products to test and review. So while my trips to the makeup counters, drugstores, and beauty boutiques are less frequent than in the past – once in a while, a product makes such an impression on me that I’ll gladly reach into my wallet. is one such product (I heart the ‘Envious’ shade).

This stain provides a long-lasting wash of color that dries to a semi-matte finish. Swipe it on lips for a “I just ate a popsicle – aren’t I cute?” look. Or layer it for a deep, inky stain.

Lip Envy comes in inkwell-esque packaging, and has a delicate vanilla scent.

Spoiled Pretty tip: after applying Lip Envy (in Envious) to lips, add lip balm, for a natural look; or layer clear gloss on top, for a sexy lacquered effect. Either way, you’ll make every girl in the room pink with envy!

    I’d love to buy this but my concern is how portable is it? Seems like this would be a mess in my carryon 🙁

    I was concerned about that too. But I’m happy to report that it’s absolutely portable. It seals up tight, and I’ve been carrying it in my makeup case (in my purse) for the past five days – with no mess.

    It’s so hard for me to shell out cash for products, too! I’m drowning in them as is. No complaints, though 🙂 If you’re reaching into your wallet for this, that’s a big deal. I’ll have to try it out. I buy only a select few items, namely Kerastase Masks and Dior Diorshow Mascara.
