I've been in the hollywood beauty circuit (working with familiar faces and going on air as a beauty host) for the past six years, and now split time between the bright lights of LA, and the calmness of West Seattle's Alki/Admiral district.
Piano, beauty related anything, painting, acting, bouldering, free diving, cliff jumping, tennis, jogging and my husband are my main obsessions!
I use these constantly in my makeup kit- they’re long wearing and apply beautifully with a brush- the only thing is you have to use them or they’ll go bad (you know that old lipstick smell). So make sure to grab a color combo you’ll use up! Pro tip/ can apply with your finger to the apples of the cheeks for a long wear wind bitten look! Make Up For Ever 7 Rouge Artist lipstick Palette H3 Red Shades
Smooth, beautiful and a fabulous PINK option, this is a go to for me! The colors goes on evenly, though needs constant reapplication. (I don’t mind as the packaging is so pretty hence five stars). I would def recommend to others especially if you’re looking for that whisper of pink and moisture control lip shine! Christian Dior Dior Addict Lipstick, Beverly Pink 875
A bit drying but that’s going to come with a LONG WEAR LIPPIE! These are no joke long wearing. For the price I think they’re a steal! I’ve purchased these and been gifted them for my kit, and I will keep going back! Great for bridal parties as they stay all day, and the price point is easy! Definitely recommend! ColourPop Lippie Stix
High performance lipstick with longevity and beautiful application. I was gifted this from a runway show backstage, and was so impressed with how it applies- use with or without a lip brush, and this product can be light to full coverage. Definitely recommend in any of the deep colors for this season (Fig is my Fav)! Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick Fig 0.1 oz
All the buzz!!! This literally makes my lips feel like they’re buzzing- I find the product to irritate my lips a little (that’s kind of the point of a plumper though so it swells your lips) hence four out of five- I have purchased this through Sephora and would be open to purchasing again- the packaging is cute, the name kitschy, and the flavor (chocolate) is addictive! Definitely a great idea for someone who wants to plump their lips! Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker™ XL Extreme-Plump
Five out of five! Noticeably plumper and moisturized without all the sting- Love the packaging and I feel so luxurious applying Dior! Definitely a splurge and repeat product purchase! I grab mine at Sephora as they’re always so nice and knowledgeable- I also grab a sample when I’m there to try something new! Total must have! Dior Addict Lip Maximizer High Volume Lip Plumper
When I sunburned my lips so severely, I healed them with Blistex and then continued for about three weeks with this Aquaphor magic! Thank goodness for the value and price because I was desperate to heal my lips- this kept them nourished and pain free following the next few weeks- the only reason I give four out of five is because I found the taste a bit odd...totally worth it though for performance! I used the sunscreen because I had another trip in the sun and did not want a repeat of my previous ailment!!! Aquaphor Lip Protectant/Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30
I had a gig in Cabo, and came back with wrecked lips! I had THE worst sunburn on my lips and nothing helped! I went to Safeway and spoke with the pharmacist who recommended Blistex and it worked like a charm. Instant relief, and three days later, the sun blisters had subsided and I had actual relief! Note to self: use spf every day in the sun!! Blistex Lip Infusion Sheer Liquid Balm
I always feel badly when I use this on kitty, because I know it makes her really tired, and itchy for a day… However, the trade-off is amazing. Whenever I use this with my cat, she is flea free, and stays safe from icky flea mites and flea eggs! Four stars only bc of the lethargy and her itching point of contact for the initial day of application...
