Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week: Liplicious 2-in-1 Moisturizing Lip Color & Sugar Scrub

liplicious+lip+color+and+sugar+scrub Recessionistas Fabuless Pick of the Week: Liplicious 2 in 1 Moisturizing Lip Color & Sugar Scrub
I’m a beauty blogger, which means I test a plethora of products. So it’s not very often that I come across something so fun and ingenious that it makes me giddy. Bath & Body Works Liplicious 2-in-1 Moisturizing Lip Color & Sugar Scrub has me giddy and smacking my lips. And what’s more? Normally $12, B&BW has slashed prices – so now you can buy two 2-in-1 Moisturizing Lip Color & Sugar Scrubs for the price of one!

Peep the directions: Smooth dull, dry lips with this delicious brown sugar scrub once a day and lick off the remaining sugar. Then, apply luscious lip color to moisturize.

Don’t you just love it? You don’t wash or tissue off the sugar scrub. You lick it off. Sweetness! When I read the instructions, I totally flashed back to what Veronica Sawyer says to Heather Chandler outside the Remington party: “Lick it up, baby. Lick it up!”

Besides the fun of licking the sugar scrub off your lips, Liplicious 2-in-1 Moisturizing Lip Color & Sugar Scrub does a great job of buffing scaly, winter lips. And the Pomegranate/Brown Sugar Scrub combination has a gorgeous dusty-rose pink lip moisturizer that I’m loving right now. The lip color is actually quite long-lasting. The other night, I applied it before bed and I awoke looking much cuter than I typically do at 7:30 in the morn.

Liplicious 2-in-1 Moisturizing Lip Color & Sugar Scrub is available in Pomegranate, Candied Apple, and Coconut Truffle. Yum…makes me wanna lick my lips.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick: 12 New Shades!

Revlon+Super+Lustrous+Lipstick+ +New+Shades Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick: 12 New Shades!
When I was in college, I worked at the school library – manning the the periodicals counter. I cleverly scheduled my hours for Friday and Saturday evenings, knowing full well that this was when most students were prepping for the parties (gals getting prettified and guys getting their Natty Light-induced buzz on). It was probably a good thing that I worked when no one needed help, as I spent most of my time reading fashion mags instead of brushing up on my microfilm/microfiche assistance abilities.

Where was I going with this back-in-the-day tale? Oh, I remember…I spent almost every cent of my earnings at the local CVS, buying Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick. Yes, I was a makeup fiend even back then.

The Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick line-up has pretty much stayed the same since my undergraduate days. Which is why a Revlon ad in the February 2009 issue on In Style Magazine caught my eye. Jessica Alba is looking quite sultry, wearing a dark crimson on her lips. When I looked to the bottom of the page to find out what shade she had on, it said “Jessica Alba is wearing Super Lustrous Lipstick in Spicy Cinnamon.” I was like, huh? Since when does Revlon have a shade called Spicy Cinnamon? Well, since now, apparently.

Twelve new shades have been added to the Super Lustrous family – and can be found at mass-market retailers nationwide.

Kim Kardashian’s Shade of Red

kim+kardashian+red+lip Kim Kardashians Shade of RedMy girl Kim doesn’t often sport a bold lip. So when she showed up for the Fontainbleau opening in Miami wearing a crimson pout, everybody and their mother wanted to know which brand and shade she wore. Kim drops the deets on her blog:

“Well, I love red lips, and I should wear them more often! It’s so bold! I love how Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani wear red lips all the time. This color is by MAC and it’s called Russian Red, with Russian Red lip gloss on top.”
