I love that the balm isn’t too waxy or sticky, and it keeps lips moisturized and conditioned for hours on end. Plus, each one is formulated with SPF 15, so you’re protecting your pout every time you step out the door!
But the best part about them? The colors, of course! This set includes Berry, Honey and Passion, each of which leave the prettiest hint of color upon the lip. I actually prefer these to lipgloss or lipstick most days!

This season is all about the red lip. Whether you go for a bright siren red as seen on the Michael Kors (above), Marc Jacobs and Victoria Beckham runways, or a gothic, vampy red as seen at Bottega Veneta and Viktor & Rolf, there’s a flattering red hue for virtually any skin tone. Show off your classic red pout by making it the focus of your face, leaving your eyes neutral and your skin fresh. Here are some red lipsticks to help you get the look:
Since red lipstick draws attention to your mouth, make sure your teeth look as bright as possible. There’s nothing worse than red lips and dull, discolored teeth. Help create a bright white smile with REMBRANDT® INTENSE STAIN® Stain Dissolving Strips, we reviewed them a few months ago and were thrilled with the results. (Check out their new Facebook page for more scoop.)
Now, a lot of people think this lipgloss is too sticky. And, yes, I agree that it can be. But I choose not to let that bother me, because the color is just that good. The coral hue shimmers and shines whether it’s on its own or other another gloss or lipstick. It’s sexy and sensual but still girly and cute—the perfect combination, wouldn’t you agree?
At the end of the day, I just feel happy when I wear it. And, really, isn’t that what makeup is all about?
