If you are what you eat, then I guess you can call me Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss. Instead of irritants or stimulants which cause lips to temporarily swell, this gloss relies on gentle but effective marine collagen to pump-up pouts for lasting results. Available in six shimmery shades (if you buy one, make it Freedom – a sheer golden rose), Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss has a dulce de leche flavor that’s lip smacking delicious!
Every time I put it on, I get the urge to just lick it all off. And when I do (which is quite often), I don’t have to worry about what I‘m ingesting – because the gloss is formulated with organic and natural ingredients (including Josie’s signature ingredient, 100% pure organic Argan oil) and doesn’t contain parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, or phthalates.
Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss is available at select Sephora stores, sephora.com and josiemarancosmetics.com.
Lancôme invents its first true lip gloss from nature, Juicy Tubes PURE, Premium Unique Raw Elements.
The formula has 95% natural origin ingredients and 100% natural origin flavors. Formulated with naturally-derived oils and shea butter (it’s also paraben free!), Juicy Tubes PURE provide high shine color and great comfort on the lips. Fans of the original Juicy Tubes will find this formula less sticky.
Limited edition Juicy Tubes PURE are inspired by images in nature and the environmentally friendly carton is 100% recyclable material – a Lancôme first!
Four shades (Strawberry Patch, Red Peppermint, Wild Berry and Lavender Zen) are exclusive to Sephora. The other six (Rose Water, Ginger Root, Sweet Soy, Rose Nectar, Bare Honey and Cherry Tree) can be found at all Lancôme counters, boutiques and lancome-usa.com.
Lancôme’s new blog is giving away a full set of all ten PURE glosses in honor of Earth Day. Click here to enter the giveaway. Contest ends Friday, April 24, 2009.

“I love sheer colors for summer- they’re wearable, easy and look goodon everyone.”- Bobbi Brown
This May, Bobbi Brown introduces her Nautical Collection.
Featuring two new products, Sheer Color Lip Gloss and Sheer Color Cheek Tint, the collection is inspired by easy, natural summer beauty.
Available in six shades (Sheer Raspberry, Sheer Mauve, Sheer Lilac, Sheer Coral, Sheer Pink, Sheer Blackberry), Bobbi’s new Sheer Color Cheek Tint gives cheeks a sheer tint of natural-looking color. The translucent, lightweight formula glides on smooth and blends evenly onto skin and comes in a swivel stick for convenient and easy application.
Sheer Color Lip Gloss is the newest addition to Bobbi’s Lip Gloss collection. Super sheer, this gloss has a see-through finish that makes it easy for any woman to wear. Available in four punchy shades (Marina Pink, Cabana Coral, Sailor, Popsicle), this is a limited-edition item for summer.
In May, both products will be available at Bobbi Brown counters and bobbibrown.com. The Sheer Color Cheek Tint retails for $22 and the Sheer Color Lip Gloss for $20.
I’ve been on a bit of a lipgloss bender, lately. Just yesterday, I applied Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss seven times. No, I didn’t have somewhere speical to go. And no, I wasn’t attempting to seduce Mr. Spoiled Pretty (who, btw, wouldn’t notice my lipgloss unless it was smeared across my face).
I’m all OCD about Aqualumiere because it looks luxurious, fells sublime (no stickiness!), and applies like hot butter on breakfast toast. Despite being a lipgloss, it packs quite a punch in the pigment department…and its brush has got to be the softest lipgloss applicator ever.
Check out my Aqualumiere swatches from Chanel’s new Côte d’Azur collection. They’ve all been placed in heavy rotation, because I can’t decide which one is my favorite.
I need another MAC lipgloss like I need a hole in the head.
But after Kim Kardashian dished that MAC Lustreglass in Instant Gold is one of her all-time faves, you know I had to go out and add one more to my collection.
So on Friday, during a spontaneous trip to my local MAC store, I picked up Instant Gold and Cremestick Pearl Liner in Mother Pearl.
So, okay, I don’t want to be a traitor to Stila and all, but I recently discovered a satisfying stand-in for the cult classic Lip Glaze – just in case there is some truth to the bankruptcy rumors.
With a click of the pen, Flirt Cosmetics’ GLAMOURAZZI Extreme Lip Lacquer delivers high-watt shine with a non-sticky formula. And the crème brûlée fragrance is a sweet surprise.
Originally $12, it’s currently on sale for $10.20, which is less than half the price of its prestige counterpart.
GLAMOURAZZI is available in 15 shades (I’m partial to Red Hottie) and is sold exclusively at Kohls.
It’s no secret that I absolutely adore and envy Kim Kardashian’s makeup. If there was a Face Off type situation, and I had to swap mugs with someone, Kim would be high on my list…primarily because I cannot get enough of the way she wears a nude lip. Aside from Angelina, nobody does it better.
So Troy Jensen
‘s recent post about his favorite nude lip colors was a godsend for a Kim copycat like me. In the photo above, Troy used NARS Belle Du Jour Lipstick
topped with NARS Giza Lip Gloss
“The colors blend beautifully with her creamy golden skin tone,” Troy says. “The art of creating the perfect nude is finding one that works with your skin tone and also the shape of your lips. Fuller lips can get away with the palest nude shades while thinner lips will need a bit more color or lip liner for definition. Whatever shade you choose, be sure to pair it with a beautiful smoky eye.”
