Bobbi Brown Extra Lip Tint Bare Melon & Bare Popsicle: Review, Ingredients, and Swatches (Color Adjusting Lip Series Part 9)

I didn’t even blink between the time I saw the new shades of Bobbi Brown Extra Lip Tint for sale online and the time I pressed the “Place Your Order” button. Bobbi’s Extra Lip Tint in Bare Pink was such a hit last year that I knew these two new additions would be hot as well.

New in My Purse: Tata Harper Lip Treatments in Be Adored and Be Smitten (Ingredients, Swatches, & Review)

New in My Purse: Tata Harper Lip Treatments in Be Adored and Be Smitten (Ingredients, Swatches, & Review)

Contains Affiliate Shopping Links to Amazon.com. All Items Purchased by Me.

I recently concluded that Tata Harper is not just another brand playing up the “natural” image to take advantage of consumers’ growing concern about chemicals. Tata Harper has a different, and genuine, feel to it. With Tata it’s not about avoiding and replacing suspicious chemicals. Instead she seems to start from zero, adding each ingredient to a product for a specific reason, and ending up with potent and high quality cosmetics. (Forgive me for brazenly calling Ms. Harper by her first name, and taking the liberty of assuming she herself formulates the products. Please? I love saying “Tata.”)

9 Summer Beauty Drugstore Finds – My Picks for Face, Lips, Body, Hair, and Sun Protection on the Cheap!

It’s been dark and rainy almost all week here. When it’s this gloomy I find myself seeking out places with lots of bright overhead light, like Target and Walmart.

Diptyque L’Art Du Soin Soothing Lip Balm & Dior Crème de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm – Review and Photos – Part 5: Lip Balms and Treatments Series

In this Part 5 of my Lip Balms and Treatments Series I am reviewing luxury lip balms from Diptyque and Dior.

Diptyque’s L’Art Du Soin Soothing Lip Balm is a fairly new release, and is part of Diptyque’s skincare line. Dior’s Crème de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm has been around for a while, and seems to be ever popular at Sephora. In fact, it was on my “wish list” for over a year before I recently bought it.
