Rosebud-Perfume-Co-Rosebud-Salve-In-A-Tube.jpgAs if the cult favorite Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve weren’t fantastic enough. We absolutely love that now it comes in a tube form!

Now, we don’t really mind tub balms, though we know some people do. But everyone can appreciate this amazing balm in a tube, right?

The formula is the same as ever, and it still works on everything from chapped lips to rough elbows and cracked cuticles. It’s just a lot easier to apply and a lot less messy.

Best of all? It’s only $6 at And who doesn’t love a good beauty bargain?
There is no better special effect than the celebrity who steps out on the red carpet in what seems to be almost no makeup. Charlize Theron wandered the red carpet in support of her new movie Young Adult, with what looked like a natural face. Her beautifully separated eyelashes were only outdone by her pretty, sheer pink lip color.

Lancôme’s ‘Color Design’ Lipcolor in Love It! is the perfect shade for copying this pale pucker trend. A little tip, when wearing pale pink lip color, a good moisturizing base coat (think lip balm) and a nude liner are musts!

Don’t be caught off guard during mistletoe season. You may think that just by using a good lip balm (personally Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 is my fave) your lips will be properly cared for. WRONG! Our lips, like every other part of our body, can be in dire need of a good sloughing sometimes. This is why I heart the Smashbox Emulsion Lip Exfoliator. It has a peppermint-y smell and is actually edible, but that’s not what makes it so great — it’s how it removes dead skin, and leaves lips feeling soft and totally kissable that’s so wonderful.

You can get Smashbox Emulsion Lip Exfoliator for $18 at
