My lip gloss is poppin'. My lipgloss is cool.

Before we begin, the soundtrack and namesake for this post has been provided by Lil Mama. This song is a classic in my little world. Pure, gratuitous, girl rap...about lip gloss. Does it really get any better?
Alright, on to the point....I recently went on a Sephora spree (oops) and came out of there with some new lip products that I'm addicted to.
Smith's Rosebud Salve in a TUBE
I love this classic. It soothes chapped lips, gives a little shine, smells great and is very affordable ($7!) Previously, this little diddy only came in a small metal can thingy and you had to get your finger all gooey to get it out. I've now learned that this magic juice also "calms and heals irritation, soothes the sting of minor burns, helps heal cuts, tames mangled cuticles, helps fix ashy elbows and knees, and minimizes diaper rash." Holy hell. The tube is where it's at. Buy here.
Smashbox O Gloss
This is one of those glosses that "adjusts" or "guesses" your natural lip tone. I was skeptical. I give a major side eye to a cosmetic product that claims to have a brain. I stand corrected. The internet claims it contains "Goji Berry-C Complex™, ginkgo biloba, and pomegranate seed antioxidants along with revitalizing marine botanicals and moisturizing avocado oil." WOW, there's like a whole rainforest in there. The gloss comes out clear and in a few minutes has morphed into a clear pinkish hue that always seems perfect. I don't know if I want to know how this voodoo magic works, but me likey. Buy here.
NARS Lip Gloss in Easy Lover
First of all, it's called "Easy Lover." Is that about me, or a prospective catch? I don't know and don't care. We all know NARS makes good stuff, but this one is going to be a go-to. It seems really bright, but it comes rolls on as just a tint of pink. I do like a hot pink lip, but this is suitable for everyday. LOVING. I've almost used it up...guess that's the way it goes with an Easy Lover. Buy here.
Mindless girlyness on a Wednesday night. Sometimes you just gotta.


  1. I love this song, haha. I have the O gloss and it worked well for it's purpose! My friend however said it made her lips like she had been .... you know. Anyways! I love all my NARS Super Orgasm lip gloss - its a go to.

  2. Thank goodness the Rosebud Salve now comes in a tube! You have tempted me entirely too much with the other products, which I have now decided I need.

  3. I absolutely have that song stuck in my head now hahaha.

  4. Such a cute post! My favorite, for everyday use, will forever be Burts Bees--gotta love that minty feeling. When going out, though, I love Lancome Juicy Tubes...makes my lips so shiny! Have a great weekend!

  5. Smith's is my favorite!!! I hated that tin too. It always melted and made a mess. I wish they'd put the strawberry in a tube too!

  6. I'm kinda pissed that I read this post because although I love rosebud salve, now I feel like I must try those other two lipglosses to compare.
    My wallet is not going to handle this well


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
