With the launch of NARS satin lip pencils in 13 shades, nailing a bold, matte lip this spring just became a whole lot easier. With “high impact, intense color” and “convenient, easy and precise application”, the satin lip pencil comes in a variety of shades from dramatic red to subtle nude. The lip pencil tends to fall in between a lipstick and a lip stain, providing more color pay off than most lipsticks and lip glosses and a large tip for quick application. With wedding season approaching, I know I’ll be bringing this warm weatherproof matte lip magic wherever I go to keep my bold lip fresh.

This balm has long been one of our favorites. When we need a little extra special something in our life, we reach for this little pink tub and let it work its magic. It’s formulated with essential rose wax, floral oils and bio-ceramides, all which work to restructure, soothe and nourish the lips.
But what we really love? It’s not waxy, tacky, sticky OR greasy. It just sinks into the lips and leaves them feeling silky smooth. It even contains anti-aging properties! And, yes, it’s rose-scented … so it just feels so romantic, too.

I picked up one of these balms on a recent trip to American Apparel—it was just a last-minute purchase because I saw it sitting near the register. I didn’t really know what to expect, but I certainly didn’t anticipate falling head over heels!
This lip balm is all natural, vegan and raw—none of which I am, but I still can appreciate it. It’s made using premium fair trade ingredients from organic farmers, and it’s even gluten-free and kosher. Pretty cool, huh? But what I absolutely love about it is the fact that it makes my lips feel fantastic. It softens and smooths them, even when they feel chapped from the horrible winter winds we’ve been experiencing as of late. And it lasts for hours! I can put it on before bed and my lips still feel great the next morning.
Hurraw! Lip Balm comes in seven different tasty flavors and retails for $3.80 at americanapparel.net.
