Stranded On A Deserted Island: Make Sure To Have A Hissyfit

hissyfit Stranded On A Deserted Island: Make Sure To Have A HissyfitAs a beauty aficionado, I get asked a plethora of product-related questions. The most common query being which products I’d want with me if a three-hour tour turned into an episode of Lost. As my beauty faves change, so do my ‘stranded on a deserted island’ picks. Well, now I’m adding Hissyfit to the list.

Hissyfit is a new range from Australia that straddles makeup and skincare. The line delivers 3-in-1 treatment benefits in the form of powerful anti-aging, advanced sun protection and luxurious formulations that wear comfortably and smell divine!

Products include:

Saving Face Anti-Aging Foundation: This natural anti-aging foundation provides flawless foundation coverage with a SPF 50+, broad spectrum protection from the sun’s damaging UVA/UVB rays. Water-resistant, Saving Face is perfect for protecting skin after exfoliation, dermabrasion or chemical peels.

Body Double Anti-Aging Body Moisturizer: This advanced natural body lotion provides intense hydration, beautiful fragrance (think a delicate blend of vanilla, almond, orange and grapefruit) and SPF 30+ broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection.

Handy Work Anti-Aging Hand Cream: This luxuriously moisturizing anti-aging hand cream offers SPF 30+ UVA/UVB protection, and smells of orange and mint.

Lip Service Anti-Aging Lip Balm: This feather-light lip balm with SPF 50+ broad spectrum protection is the perfect skincare and cosmetic product in one. Wear it alone for gorgeous, glossy, natural lips. Or layer over your favorite lipstick for a soft, supple kissable finish.

I’m particularly impressed by how delightful and unsunscreeny these skin savers smell. And the Saving Face Foundation gets major props for its wide range of shades. Brown skinned beauties, rejoice!

Hissyfit is sold at dermstore.com and hissyfit.com.

eos+lip+balm+smooth+sphere Recessionistas Fabuless Pick of the Week: eos Lip Balm Smooth Spheres

If the thought of sticking your bacteria-laden fingers in a pot of lip balm/gloss doesn’t appeal to you, I have an excellent (and economical) solution.

ed+westwick+eos+lip+balm+smooth+sphere Recessionistas Fabuless Pick of the Week: eos Lip Balm Smooth SpheresNew Lip Balm Smooth Spheres from eos have this cool, ergonomic packaging that bridges the gap between high-end lip balms and chapsticks. And the USDA certified organic formula is enriched with hydrating ingredients (Vitamin A, shea butter, and jojoba oil). Available in three delish flavors (Summer Fruit is my fave…and it’s pink, natch), these balms will only set you back a couple of bucks.

I love ’em. Chuck Bass loves ’em. You (and your wallet) are gonna love ’em too!

Lip Balm Smooth Spheres are now available at evolutionofsmooth, drugstore.com and will soon be available at Walgreens (July), Rite Aid (July), SpaceNK (August) and Duane Reed (August).

Bacon Flavored Lip Balm

bacon+lip+balm Bacon Flavored Lip BalmMy girl Beth tipped me off to the looniest lip balm I’ve seen in probably forever – J&D’s Bacon Flavored Lip Balm. For just $3.99, you can moisturize you lips and make yourself taste like bacon!

“A great stocking stuffer, J&D’s Bacon Flavored Lip Balm will keep your lips from chapping while constantly reminding you why bacon is the king of meats.”

Buy a 12-pack of the lip balm for $24.99, and give the “gift of bacon flavored kisses” to “friends, lovers or anything in between.”

The product has skyrocketed to fame, since being featured on last Friday’s episode of Oprah. Pretty ironic, considering the Swine Flu going around. No?

Sara Happ Lip Slip: Kiss Dull, Chapped Lips Goodbye

sara+happ+lip+slip Sara Happ Lip Slip: Kiss Dull, Chapped Lips Goodbye
When it comes to beauty products, I’m like a general practitioner. But if I had to declare a specialty, it would definitely be lip products. So when I tell you that Sara Happ’s new Lip Slip is the balm, you know you’re hearing sage advice.

sara+happ+lip+slip2 Sara Happ Lip Slip: Kiss Dull, Chapped Lips GoodbyeWhat is so amazing about Lip Slip is its pudding-like texture; it is unlike any other balm that I’ve ever tried. It’s hella hydrating and imparts the most luxurious looking shine you’ve ever seen.

Lip Slip slips on, melting onto your mouth and moisturizing with Sweet Almond, Jojoba and Macadamia nut oils. But what really gives it valedictorian status is the rich sheen it leaves on the lips. It’s so much sexier than full-on gloss because it looks so effortless, yet so polished.

There is no doubt in my makeup-obsessed mind that Sara Happ’s Lip Slip is destined to be a cult classic, just like her Lip Scrub.

Even If You're Broke, You Can Afford This Fab Beauty Find

NYC+Lips+Slider+in+Sugar+Kiss Even If You're Broke, You Can Afford This Fab Beauty FindYou’re broke. You’re dying to pamper yourself – but every day, your purse strings get a tad bit tighter. You want to look like a million bucks, but that’s almost how much you owe the credit card companies. And let’s not even talk about your student loans…good grief!

Fret not. You’ve come to the right place. I’ve got a product that you’re going to love – not only because it’s totally worth the money, but because it hardly costs any money at all! I’m talking about Lip Sliders Tinted Lip Balm by N.Y.C.

Available in six shades, this emollient balm delivers a sheer pop of color with an intense gloss finish (somewhat wet-looking, which is totally hot IMO). The hydrating and conditioning formula contains rich botanical oils and vitamins, which soften and repair. Plus, the subtly sweet flavor and fragrance is a yummy treat.

The best part is you can pucker up with N.Y.C. for only $2.99. After trying it, I couldn’t believe it either. I would gladly pay twice as much for this balm, thought I appreciate that the folks at N.Y.C. are thinking about my financial well-being. Lip Sliders Tinted Lip Balm would be a great item for The Price Is Right. It’s such a wonderful product that no one would guess that it costs less than $3.
