I love deep fall colors, but sometimes I just want a light, classic colors. The products below will be pretty all year long, not just for the fall!
Lip Bliss™ by What’s Your Virtue was founded by a mother of teen and preteen daughters who was shocked at the explicit and suggestive names found on numerous brands of lip gloss. She didn’t feel it was appropriate for her 13-year-old daughter to put such messaging in her pocket, much less on her lips. Now, choose from vibrant colors with names such as Kindness, Generosity, Devotion and Curiosity.
Lip Bliss™ bundles fortifying castor, cranberry, and safflower seed and peppermint oils to smooth and nurture, plus the protecting properties of anti-oxidants, green tea extracts, and moisturizing vitamin E. Lip Bliss™ offers radiant shine and subtle color without stickiness, is gluten-free, not tested on animals, and contains no parabens.
What I think: These pretty glosses have a light, minty taste and lots of shine! I think the names and colors are so sweet. The glosses are a little sticky, but are moisturizing as well. Good glosses! To purchase, visit http://whatsyourvirtue.com.
FLIRT! Big Flirt Lipgloss ($15.50 USD)Turn on super-fabulous shine with this lip gloss. It features a sheer and shiny look that looks great alone or paired with a darker lipstick. Dotted design on tube adds a cute touch.
