Skincare Sunday VIII: Lips, Lips, Lips

I am dedicating this week's Skincare Sunday post to some lip care items that I have really been enjoying lately. They're all relatively new to my collection and they're great:


From the back left to right:

1. Gatineau 3D Lift Volumizing Lip Balm (available from QVC or Amazon)

This is a very lightweight yet potent lip balm that leaves a glossy finish to the lips and that also plumps them! Smells like lychee and just overall makes my lips feel hydrated and voluminous. I love using this at night or during the day if I am just trolling around the house.

2. Hourglass Lip Oil (available from Sephora)

Luxurious packaging (the applicator is gold plated, haaay) and beautifully scented. If you have tried the Hourglass Primer Serum, this has a similar scent and feel, albeit a bit more "oily". The gold applicator feels cooling and comfortable on the lips, and one pump is enough for an application. I was super skeptical of this product at first but it's one of those things that has just been growing on me with each use. I love the herbal fresh scent and I love the way it makes my lips look and feel. I wouldn't use this as a lip balm primer before lipstick since it's an oil and doesn't absorb as quickly on the lips. I like using this alone on days off or over night. It's not sticky, it's not cheap, but it's a nice little treat :)

3. Nivea Lip Butter Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss (available from drugstores)

A beautiful budget alternative. This smells absolutely amazing and I've been using it daily under lipstick as a primer. I am not a big fan of potted lip products but this makes me get over it.

What are your favourite lip treatments?

  21. Its very nice blog..I got good ideas from this amazing blog. I am always searching like this type blog post.i just want to say about Top Voucher Codes,A voucher code is a great way to save money when shopping online. It’s a special code that you enter at the checkout for an instant discount.

    It's really simple! During the checkout process, you’ll be prompted to add the voucher code (sometimes referred to as a promotional code, e-voucher, or discount code). Enter the code into the box when requested and the discount will be immediately deducted from your basket total.

    Each retailer has a slightly different process for entering a voucher code, so take a moment to be sure you are clear where to enter the code. Almost all retailers will display the amended basket total prior to taking payment.

Poisoned meats have been used for centuries for killing off wolves, birds that were seen to threaten crops, and against other creatures.

  32. Adelaide is home to many species of cockroaches, including the Australian, American and smaller German varieties. The latter can pose a risk to electrical appliances, which they can invade. Cockroach droppings are also hazardous to health and can trigger asthma attacks and allergies. It is usually necessary to undertake a fumigation treatment to eradicate cockroaches. Our team understands the need to get rid of cockroaches without endangering your health in the long-term. We use cockroach bait gels together with pesticide fumigation with a low toxic formulation.etc. شركة مكافحة النمل الابيض بالدمام شركة رش مبيدات بالدمام شركة مكافحة حشرات بالاحساء شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض+++ we wait you here شركة تنظيف منازل بالرياض شركة تنظيف مجالس بالرياض شركة تنظيف موكيت بالرياض شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض
