What was supposed to be a quick Insta post is now turning into a short-n-sweet blog post! So, why don't you hop back on the IT Cosmetics train with me for a sec?
I felt as though another safe venture into a new line of cosmetics is into lip product land. Who doesn't love to have a great moisturing lip balm or gloss to leave stashed in their purse?
As stated before, my little love for lips is Maybelline Baby Lips! The Dr. Rescue Baby Lips in Just Peachy will live all of its balmy days in the depths of my purse. However, I'm finding that as the more pale I become, the more washed out that color makes me look. I KNOW I could just buy another shade, but this was serving as my springboard to try something new.
While trying REALLY hard to make it out of Ulta in under and hour and without spending $100, I became trapped by an end cap! DARN YOU CLEARANCE AND SPECIAL DEAL ENDCAPS! It had all sorts of packaged deals for your Holiday stocking stuffer needs. However, I saw a few IT Cosmetic gems in there and decided to snag that box of lip stuff! It looked like this:
So, I was thinking sheer moisture, with all the insane benefits that most IT Cosmetics provide, at about half the price ... why not?! And if I really like it, I will definitely gift it!
Well, y'all, when I put this stuff on, MAGIC happened. Pure magic. I wasn't left with some colorless balmy just-like-every-other-lip-balm look or feel. My lips were transformed I tell ya! It's like this stuff pulled out the healthiest, most natural lip color from my lips. So let's take a look as I built up the products starting with the Vitality Lip Flush 4-in-1 Lipstick Stain then using the Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain (both in shade Je Ne Sais Quoi):

SO!!! Love it. Gotta have it. Go get it! Merry Christmas!!! & Happy New Year! ;)
Much love, XoxO
