Cubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm

Share/Bookmark

Oh, the conundrum of the lip STICK. The moisturizing formulas keep the lips supple and smooth, but any hint of color is gone after your first Americano, and the formulas with a heavier concentration of color dry the hizzle out of your kisser. Clinique’s Chubby Stick (what a name…) Moisturizing Lip Balm strikes a fairly even balance, with a nice, creamy texture, and color that MIGHT get you through your second Starbucks run. (Mega Melon FTW!)

Perspective

Not every piece in Lush’s Emotional Brilliance color line are winners. (Look at “Lifted”. Then, look away.) And not all the colors go on very well. However, Perspective, a lip (and cheek!) color wins all around. Great texture, vegan, looks amazing on everyone.
True story– I was on a business trip and forgot my makeup bag (HORRORS!!). I got through the week with this color from Lush, a BB cream from Cover Girl, and a concealer from MAC. (Don’t worry, I went back to being the high maintenance PW you know and love the next week 🙂

Full of Grace

I discovered this very strange, very effective, all natural solid serum while on a 6 hour flight from NYC to Vancouver. My skin was so dry it was borderline painful. I searched and searched in my (STUFFED) carry-on and finally found this anti-oxidant packed little oval from Lush called Full of Grace. Desperate, I rubbed it all over my face (including lips) and by the time the in-flight movie was over (something with Adam Sandler in a dramatic turn… yikes) my face was dewy, supple, and happy. I now use it on dry patches or in the winter under my moisturizer religiously. TIp- keep it somewhere dry and cool, and in a case, or it will melt all over everything- not cute.
