So in my recent trip to Miami I learned a few things: 1) I might be totally OK living near a beach for the remainder of my life; 2) Some friends can get creative with planning bachelorette party activities, which I will not repeat here in a public forum — or ever; 3) There are some lip glosses that should not be left out in plain view sight, lest one of your friends are tempted to steal them. Because I was told this might happen. These are some of those glosses:
Just to reiterate why these are my current faves:
BUXOM BIG & HEALTHY LIP POLISH IN APRIL, $19 for full size: I’m a big fan of this line (my all-time favorite color is Dani, in original pink/berry). It always leaves the perfect shimmering color and gives a little (non-irritating) lift to lips. I was carrying a mini-travel friendly size (which came in an AWESOME limited edition set that you can now only find on eBay at best!), but you can still find the full size at Sephora if you want to experience it in all its pink, sparkling glory yourself.
BURT’S BEES 100% NATURAL LIP SHINE IN WINK, $7: These are the LATEST launch from the brand, and they are the most amazing, buttery, sheer glosses I’m convinced you’ll love. It’s a totally natural formula (shea and cocoa butter, sunflower, and of course, beeswax) that hydrates and has the most delicious apricot-flavor. Love that it gives a beautiful color and conditions my lips as well.
LAURA GELLER LIP POP IN PALAZZO PETAL, $17: Since we’re talking about delicious glosses, it’s really hard to top Laura Geller’s Lip Pops. They straight up taste like strawberry candy and its shade of Palazzo Petal is a gorgeous shade of creamy pink. I think I had a odd-almost-but-not-as-much-as-I’d-admit bout of depression for the 5 minutes I thought I lost this somewhere in our hotel room because there’s really nothing like it. You can buy these individually for $17, but (HINT!!), they have a SIMILAR shade that comes in a lip gloss trio on sale right now at Hautelook.com (normally $36 but only $22 right now). If I were you, I would jump on that.
