My Too Faced order from the National Lipstick weekend arrived a couple of days ago! Scroll down for Too Faced Lip Oil in Papa Don’t Peach swatch, Peach Kiss swatches
A few weeks ago I received these two Marc Jacobs Enamored Hydrating Gloss Sticks in the shades “Candy Bling” and “Uh-Huh Honey” complimentary from Influenster. I have been using them a lot so I could give a proper review!
These glosses come in a stick, and you simply need to twist the package a couple of times to allow part of the stick to come out (the tube doesn’t twist backwards so you only twist enough for one application). You apply it like a lipstick. It feels super moisturizing on my lips, similar to a tinted lip balm. The only drawback for me is that it’s not super long lasting. I do have to reapply it every hour and a half to 2 hours. However that’s not a problem for me, considering how light and hydrating it feels.
As for the shades I was sent, I was very intimidated by “Candy Bling” when I saw the packaging, because I don’t like strong/out there lip colours. However as soon as I put it on, I realised it’s sheer enough to be wearable for those who prefer more natural lips. If you apply it lightly it will be quite natural, if you apply very generously then it will look stronger. “Uh-Huh Honey” also looked like something I wouldn’t enjoy at first. It looks brown on the package and I don’t feel brown tones flatter my lips. But once again, when applied lightly it simply created a golden layer of shimmer over the natural pink of my lips. However, all this being said, I need to proclaim my love for the colour that results from layering both of these colours together. I’m gonna call it “Candy Honey” ? It is the most flattering combination on me and I can’t get enough of it!
In conclusion: I really think this is an excellent everyday lip product for summer. It’s light and refreshing and hydrating to wear on a hot summer day, and not sticky at all!
Today I received my Sephora “Give me some nude lip” kit, which is currently on sale at Sephora during their memorial day sale, for only $14! It was originally $28, with a claimed value of $83. I think at this price it’s a great deal, and it has a great range of finishes from matte to shimmer to gloss, with also a good range of colour from lighter to darker nude tones.

They’re giving away 2 free full size lipsticks (in “Angelic” and “Bare with me”) with every order. The picture above shows an example cart of the order I placed. I haven’t tried their lip stuff yet but $12.49 seems like a great price to jump on board of their lip wagon! They have other discounted lip gloss shades. Type “sale” in the search box to see them.
