May Beauty Favorites!

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus

I have been raving about this lip balm all month to anyone who will listen!

I mentioned it in my Lip Favorites post – here.

It’s absolutely creamy and natural looking, it hydrates my lips very well and looks great anytime, with or without makeup.

Max Green Alchemy Scalp Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner

I reviewed this pair 3 days ago – here – and I truly have loved every bit of this set.

I have experienced so many natural shampoos and conditioners that either make my hair too dry or too oily and this one is just right.

I actually was skeptical I could find a natural version that would work so well.

Love the lemon scent as well; it definitely wakes me up in the morning.

Diorshow Extase Mascara

After reviewing the very disappointing Gossip Girl themed May Birchbox (see here), this ended up being my favorite item in the box.

It actually prevented me from cancelling my Birchbox subscription altogether being how it was so amazing.

Lifting, curling, and separately coating each individual lash in a lovely darkest black, this certainly changed my lashes for the better!

I have since carried this around in my purse everyday, almost religiously.

Moisturizing Coconut and Dead Sea Salt Spray For Hair

I did a sort of mini review on this in my post on Rainwater Botanicals (See it Here) and it honestly was love at first spray (?)…

No really, though, this is destined to become a summer essential of mine!

It works really well as a detangler, plus it smells amazing AND if you spritz the lower half of your hair when it’s wet after a shower, it dries in lovely beach waves (or curlier curl waves if you have curly/wavy hair already like I do!).

I love that this spray is so affordable and lovely and works just as well (better in my opinion) than more expensive brands.

DIY Brown Sugar Body Scrub

 At the risk of sounding extremely self-absorbed, I LOVE this scrub that I recently made.

Not only is it very effective at gentle exfoliation, but it also hydrates the skin as well, but it’s not at all greasy and doesn’t leave a residue.

Get the recipe – here.

Plus, it can literally be made in your kitchen for very little cost to you!

And if I’m one thing, it’s a bargain hunter!

My Current Lip Favorites!

Sorry for the crappy cell phone picture!

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus

This is by far one of my favorite tinted lip balms! It has a really smooth texture that just glides right on, but it doesn’t have that gross oily feeling. It just feels moisturizing. Hibiscus is a really natural pinkish nude color, it just makes your lips look really healthy with a little bit of color. I am really pale with neutral skin tone so it may look different on someone with a darker or lighter skin tone than me, but moisturizing qualities will be the same.  

Price: $6.99

Would I Buy Again? 

Definitely would! I love this lip balm. It’s both nourishing and pretty. Plus, it looks natural and I can wear it any time, anywhere. Love it! I definitely recommend this one!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam

This lip cream is really pretty! It’s a really bright coral pink color that goes on matte, but without being drying. It is actually really creamy. Since I am pretty pale, this color looks REALLY bright on me, but someone lighter than me may feel its even brighter or someone darker may feel it isn’t bright enough on their complexion. It is a lovely color; very pretty for Spring and Summer!

Price: $5

Would I Buy Again? 

I actually didn’t buy this. I got it in a MyGlam bag. This is something I would’ve never tried on my own, but I am glad I got to try! It is very pretty and great for Spring! I definitely recommend this for people who like vibrant colors.

Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain in Dawn

The Just Bitten Lip Stains are really lovely. It’s dual-ended; one end is a plain lip balm and the other is the actual colored lip stain. You use the balm first to moisturize your lips and fill in any cracks so that your lips are very smooth when you apply the stain. Then you apply the lip stain over. Having the balm is really awesome because the stain is just a deep color without any moisturizing properties so if you have dry lips, this can still be moisturizing if you use the balm before applying the stain. The color I have, Dawn, is a really pretty coral color (sensing a theme? 🙂 ), but it’s not overwhelmingly bright or vibrant. It’s a very natural color. It looks like a nude beige type coral though because it doesn’t have any of the vibrancy that the NYX lip cream has. It’s very classic looking and very natural if the lip cream seems to bright for your tastes.

Price: $8.99

Would I Buy Again? 

Maybe. I really like the line of colors available in this product as they all look natural and pretty, but I don’t know if it’s worth it to me at $8.99. I like that they include a lip balm, but I am not sold on it yet. Maybe after more experimenting!

UpstateHerbWorks Citrus Lip Serum 

This is a lip serum I found on Etsy. It really isn’t for wear during the day, though I suppose you could if you wanted to. I wear it at night as part of my skincare regimen to keep my lips moisturized and healthy looking. This serum has no color to it; it is essentially just a mix of natural vegetable oils that help to moisturize your lips and keep them healthy looking. I really like it and I feel it has helped to keep my lips moisturized and healthy. It’s really affordable at only $9 and made with natural vegetable oils so I really love that.

Price: $9

Would I Buy Again? 

I think I definitely would buy  this again! The high quality oils are very nourishing and help my lips stay moisturized and not get chapped. Love it! I definitely recommend this lip serum as a good alternative to the more expensive lip treatments for those who get really chapped lips.

What are your favorite lip balms, glosses, etc.?

Recommendations welcome!

I am not a huge fan of lipsticks as I am nervous about bold colors, but I am trying to be more lip-outgoing, if you will, so please let me know your most-loved colors!

I would love to try reader favorites!

That’s all for now!
