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.”

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.
What 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.
I’ll be the first to admit that when I’m at the mall, I usually just walk on by Wet Seal. Nine times out of ten, I’m in a rush to get to Forever 21, so I can fight a fourteen year old for a $4 pair of earrings.
But thanks to a tip for my girl Sydne, I’m starting to think that Wet Seal seals the deal on scarves. I mean, just check out this assortment…and right now, they’re 2 for $15!
