Beauty Test Drive: Yes To Coconut Naturally Smooth Lip Balm & Cooling Lip Oil

I loooove the smell of coconuts. Just a whiff takes me back to the beach where sunscreen and pina coladas are plentiful. So when I heard that Yes To launched a line of Yes To Coconut products, I couldn’t wait to try their lip balm and lip oil that would (hopefully) leave me tasting coconut…

Beauty Test Drive: Mor Lip Macaron Lip Balm

My life has been one long epic quest for the perfect lip balm. These are my stringent requirements:

goopy but not sticky or waxy
tastes good
packaging which is both pretty and sturdy (I drop makeup like it’s my job)
most importantly, nourishes my chronically dry lips

Pucker Up: The Best Lip Treatments And Balms At Every Price

Is this winter weather killing your lips? Because it’s seriously killing my lips. Last night, as I tried to catch up on “Downton Abbey” I got super distracted by how cracked my lips were and had to pause and find my balm (it had slipped under the bed). Don’t do what I did though –…

This Organic Lip Salve Has Your Chapped Lips Covered

My lips are crazy chapped this time of year. Eh, who am I kidding — I’m in the throes of a lifelong battle against cracked, peeling lips, which is probably the least sexy thing in all of the world. Not that sexy is one of my foremost concerns, given that I have eschewed men for…

Beauty Test Drive: Revlon Balm Stain

I am very possibly a lip beauty product hoarder. Alas, that is not what we are here to discuss.

I’d long admired the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain at my local pharmacy, but I never felt justified in forking over $8 for yet another lip product. Then last weekend I lost my…

Solve Chapped Lips Like A Surf Pro

I tried surfing once. It didn’t end so well — I lost the surf board and almost slammed up against a bunch of rocks. Still, there’s something totally dreamy about surf culture — and especially surfer girls, who are totally badass, and strong and basically live in the ocean. And that’s why I’m really excited…

Beauty Test Drive: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

I think I’ve mentioned my love for Revlon Lip Butters a few times now, most recently in the context of my summer makeup routine, but I thought it was time to make things official and ask Lip Butter to marry me write up a full Beauty Test Drive. This awesome lip balm/lipstick hybrid is the…

Happy Easter! Here Are 11 Of The World’s Weirdest Lip Balms

Do you have a chapstick problem? Do you slather on the stuff approximately once every four minutes and compulsively use it until there is nothing (nothing!) left in the tube? We know the feeling. We’re all for cherry, pomegranate, and watermelon, but we’re so over fruity balms. We want something different. And now there’s proof…

Girl Scout Cookies On Your Lips

God love Girl Scout Cookies, but they’re sadly only available a few months out of the year. If you don’t stock up, or just have no self-control, then your GS cookie intake is pretty limited. To satiate Thin Mint fans year round, Girls Scouts have partnered with Lip Smacker to make a series of cookie-flavored li…

Beauty Test Drive: A Balm With Bite

The sexiest thing about me? My extremely chapped lips. I realize most people have to combat this condition once the temperature drops and brisk winds are in the air, but my lips are unique in that they have no regard for the climate. Through both bitter chills and balmy 100+ degree days, my lips are…

Although no one has quite figured out where to purchase it, we hear that Paula Deen has a mouth watering line of lip balm perfect for the person looking to “put a little South on your mouth.” Aren’t we all?

Beauty Test Drive: Bliss Fabulips Treatment Kit

The beauty industry is all about developing products and then creating a demand for said products — which actually means they convince us that we really, really, really need those creams, salves, and washes or we’ll turn ugly! So I have to admit I was quite skeptical when I was invited to try out Bliss’…

Clove Cigarette Lip Gloss Is Yumz

I am a lip balm connoisseur. I am over Cherry Chapstick and love it when I find something with a more unusual flavor. So I am very excited about these TokyoMilk Dark Lip Elixirs that come in flavors like Salted Caramel, Absinthe, and Smoked Salt. I opted for the Clove Cigarette flavor, and it’s gloriously…

Two Products For The Weight Of One

Between makeup, moisturizer, lip balm and the like, your purse often ends up weighing about 1000 lbs. We’re always looking for products that make it possible to schlep one less thing around. And that’s why we love Votre Vu’s fantastic little Duette — a hand creme and lip balm in one! Duette comes in a…

Tried & True: Korres Lip Butter

I am adamant about always having smooth and kissable-looking lips. After all, who wants to look at chapped, cracked, and super dry lips, let alone smooch them? Nothing about skin falling off your lips is attractive, and it’s definitely not appetizing. But lip gloss isn’t meant for moisturizing. Most of them are too sticky, some…

Rosebud Salve Face-Off: The Tube Vs. The Pot

The secret to getting rich must be to invent something so simple that makes people say, “Why didn’t I think of that? It was so obvious!” The guy who thought up cheese in a can must be sitting back in his mansion sipping a cheesetini and pitying us all. For fanatics of iconic beauty product…

eos Lip Balm

This may be just a random egg-shaped eos Lip Balm, but we love it! The best part about loving it is that it makes no sense why you’ll love it so much. Here are the clues to the mystery: It’s 95 percent organic, 100 percent natural, and comes in a rainbow of colors. The real…

Crave: The Body Shop’s New Dragon Fruit Lip Butter

For girls who love safe sex as much as new lip goo, The Body Shop and MTV have debuted a dragon fruit/shea lip butter to raise money for MTV’s Staying Alive campaign. About $5 from each fruity butter will go towards Staying Alive, which promotes safe sex and teaches HIV/AIDS awareness among young people. Beauty…
