Soap & Glory A Great Kisser Lip Moisture Balm


I’ve just discovered the line Soap & Glory, and I’m kinda really freaking happy about it- great ingredients, affordable, and a great range of products to choose from, including my new favorite lip balm- A Great Kisser (Yup).

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick

Along comes a Sephora chick so cool, she didn’t even have to wear the Sephora outfit. She overheard our (ridiculous) conversation, and introduced us to the British line Soap & Glory (cool), which apparently has this amazing peptide and moisture-rich “gloss-stick” (cooler), that are just $16, last for eons, and after the inevitable try-on, are pretty much one of the best lip products out there (coolest).

The Lip Scrub (Sara Happ)

The directions say to massage (scrub ) it vigorously on your lips and then remove, but I leave it on when I’m blow drying my hair and then remove . Your lips will be smooothh like butter, thanks to the exfoliating sugar crystals, and the scent/taste that stays with you for a while will get rave reviews from the Man – you’re welcome.

Lipdrink (Jane Iredale)

I was shopping for Jane Iredale’s mineral make-up when the sales gal sold me on Youngblood instead ( obvi, she was a fellow product whore) but gave me sample of Jane Iredale’s lipdrink and self adjusting lip and cheek color. She was a smart productwhore/sales gal – I am hooked on both. The lipdrink provides hydration like no other and the self adjusting lip and cheek color are convenient and effective when pressed for time.

Honey Trap (LUSH)

This lip balm is the catโ€™s meow โ€“ great for soothing dry, chapped lips. I love how I can put it on at night and still feel it in the morning. The smell is not overpowering โ€“ itโ€™s just pleasant and slightly sweet.

Rosebud Perfume Co. Smith’s Rosebud Salve

In every makeup artists toolbox. Very subtle color, a hint of rose scent (not overpowering), cult-fave. Multi-purpose lip balm does a million things in addition to lips, from soothing burns to diaper rash.

Nars Lip Gloss in Orgasm

I dare you not to gain an instant little pep in your step, (and feel just a tad like that 50 Shades chick) with one swipe of this peachy pink gloss from one of our favorite brands, Nars. Orgasm has become a phenomenon (isn’t that fun to say??) with a whole little collection of products sharing the name and color scheme. The great thing is, the shade is flattering on everyone, and brings a fading complexion that may need a little “oomph”, to life. Hey, it’s always fun to keep your co-workers guessing, right?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Rosebud Salve (Minted Rose)

Of all the Rosebud Salves that I know and love, (and oh, friends, there are many…) the minted rose is my very, very favorite. This is my by far my most frequent Sephora impulse purchase (and again, there are many…). As I’m sure legions of PWs already know, any Rosebud Salve will fix a sore mouth in a jiff, but it’s also great on rough skin, can heal a blemish, and will give tired skin a healthy glow. Truly a PW Hall of Famer!

Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub

Here’s the scenario: Your have red wine mouth, and it’s 7am. No bueno. Enter mint julips lip scrub. Just a little sugar and essential oils here, and the mint will freshen your breath…well, thank you very much! So, no mess, because it’s natural and entirely edible, and now you can even put on a little lip gloss without looking like a total freak! Oh, AND the tell-tale freaky purple lip ring is gone. BAM.

Pro Longwear Lipcreme (MAC)

Let it be known that whenever I want to cheer myself after a particularly hard day, I will treat myself to a MAC lipstick, and I never, ever regret it. Thankfully, I don’t have TOO many hard days, but somehow, I do have quite a few stunning shades of this Pro Longwear Lipcreme, so go figure; I may be lurking around my local MAC store after the good days too ๐Ÿ™‚
There are just way too many delicious shades, with a good balance of staying power and creaminess. Definitely in my Lipstick Hall of Fame… which I may have to start in my apartment, at the rate my collection is growing…
