Get Me an Orange Soda, Stat! Or, theBalm Lip Gloss in Pop

Published in: Daily Beauty

theBalm Read My Lips Lip Gloss in Pop (2)

Like Fanta, there’s something fizzy and bubbly and refreshing about POP!, this orange lip gloss from theBalm.

It’s called Read My Lips Lip Gloss in Pop ($15), and it makes lips look like they’ve been painted with a Popsicle, and then coated with a high-shine lacquer.

It’s not too late to try the orange lip trend, my friend. If you’ve been wanting to but haven’t, Pop is a sweet, and not full-on frightening orange, way to try the look.

Pop is moderately pigmented and also has a healthy dose of peach in it as well, so it’s not straight-up orange.

I’d say it’s actually less like orange soda, and more like an effervescent mimosa.

Mmm, mimosas…

*Cue birds chirping!* chirping

I think I may have literally heard a symphony of birds singing outside my window the first time I opened Rouge Bunny Rouge When Birds Are Singing Long-Lasting Eye Shadow in Rufous-Tailed Weaver ($25).

It’s like powder eyeshadow makeup LOVE in a pan.

I almost can’t describe it… One minute, I see a beautiful bronzy brown. Next minute, a gorgeous golden tan taupe and oh! — it’s also freakishly smooth.

You know those products that make you fall in love with makeup all over again?

Yeah, this is one of those for me.

Aw, How Sweet: It’s The Legends Lip Gloss Set by NYX

Published in: Daily Beauty

NYX The Legends Lip Gloss Set (2)

Some legends are sweet, like these bright candy-colored glosses in The Legends Lip Gloss Set ($15) by NYX.

Not only do they look like candy, but they taste like it, too (like the sugary outer layer on Sour Patch kids, yum!).

The kit comes with five lipglosses in Classic Pink, Classic Coral, Classic Red, Classic Fuchsia and Classic Violet, all of which start bright when you apply them but sheer down to about 50% intensity over the first 10 minutes or so.

The moderately thick, semi-sticky formula lasts about two hours for me.

I’m kinda bummed they aren’t as bright and I wanted them to be…but I still think they’ll be fun layering glosses, especially with bright lipsticks.

PRICE: $15 for a set of five glosses
AVAILABILITY: Available now at NYX counters and online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B

theBalm Read My Lips Lip Gloss in Pow Packs a Wallop

Published in: Daily Beauty

theBalm Read My Lips Lip Gloss in Pow

You’d expect a lipgloss named “Pow!” to pack a punch, and this opaque fuchsia gloss by theBalm does just that (it even contains ginseng!).

I like wearing this with black cat eye liner and lots o’ lashes on days when I can’t be bothered by eyeshadow (*flips hair*).

A word to the wise: wear lip liner with this one, as it’s pigmented and opaque, which is great, but it also has a lot of slip because it’s not very sticky, so it tends to scoot around outside the natural lip line, especially if you rub your lips throughout the day like yours truly.

Yeah, I wore this the other day, and my bottom lip ended up looking all sorts of Baby Jane cray…

A lip liner will keep it from wandering beyond where you want it to go, POW! :)

You can find Pow making a statement at theBalm counters and online. It’s $15 for a 0.219-ounce tube.

PRICE: $15
AVAILABILITY: Available now at theBalm counters and online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A- (slightly high maintenance, needs lip liner)
