Uh, oh… Someone spiked the punch!


I’ve never heard that in reference to actual punch before, but I’ve always wanted to say it.

How goes the weekend? Good, I hope. I had a pretty relaxing afternoon, I’m happy to report. No news is good news, right? Oh, I finally caught the last episode of Project Runway online. I don’t want to spoil the ending if you haven’t seen it yet, but what did you think? Did the right person win (I think so!)?

Because it was sunny today I couldn’t stop thinking about the beach, which led me to think about coral (and surfing) and the subject of today’s giveaway, Benefit’s Spiked Punch lipgloss, one of the new Ultra Shines Lip Shine glosses I’ve been lurving lately (see it in action here).

I hope you’re ready to shine. πŸ™‚

The prize

One lucky lady will win a tube of Benefit’s shimmery coral Ultra Shines Lip Shine Gloss in Spiked Punch (an $18 value).

Spiked Punch, like the other Ultra Shines Lip Shine glosses, radiates a mirror-like finish and packs pigment to spare. It doesn’t hit counters until May, so this is an early peak.

First, you can enter by leaving a comment at the bottom of this post. In it, share a trick you use to keep your lips looking great, or tell me the name of your current favorite gloss.

  3. Cyn says:

    My current favorites are the Body Shop’s Love Gloss.

  4. Elisabeth says:

    I have full lips so I have to make sure that I exfoliate them once a week after which I slather on some Vaseline. B/c I’m cheap like that.

  5. kammi says:

    I am following you on twitter. I tweeted this contest. I am @kammikoza

  6. Molly says:

    I buff my lips a little with a soft toothbrush, to get rid of any dry bits, then slather them with Smith’s Rosebud balm. Old school, but that’s why it’s still around- it works!

  7. kammi says:

    I love using Jouer Lips Moisture because it makes my lips soft and then I use my favorite Amway lipstick ontop. It looks great!

  8. Cindi says:

    I follow you on Twitter…..
    “Tweet” ~
    Again, many thanks!

  9. darci says:

    I’m loving burts bees replenish lip balm and I do use it mainly at night right before i go to bed.

  10. yiota says:

    I exfoliate my lips by gently rubbing my toothbrush over them! It works quite well..then i moisturize before bed with either Cake’s lip butter or Lush’s lip balm in Honey trap!

  11. Ashley says:

    I use a homemade lip scrub (cinnamon,sugar,honey,evoo) twice a week & follow up with non-petroleum jelly! I wake up with this softest supple lips!

  12. Audrey H. says:

    I use a dry wash cloth to exfoliate my lips, then I put a little plain lip balm like burt’s bees or simple vaseline on. Thanks, would love to try this lip gloss.

  13. Jessica says:

    I don’t know if I have a favourite of all time, but I’m loving MAC Venetian right now! The perfect blue-red wash of colour.

  14. Catherine says:

    My current favorite lipgloss is Laura Mercier’s Lip Plumper in Persimmon.

    Still trying to figure out the keeping lips looking nice thing. I had routine that was working pretty well but it doesn’t seem to be really working anymore.. =/

  15. Fatema says:

    Hi!! my current fav lip gloss is bare esscentuals bare minerals 100% natural lip gloss….I love it, it’s sooo moisturizing and feels good on my lips..stays long, no smell issue!!

  16. Ambrrr says:

    I do a sugar paste scrub every other week, and use lots of Smith’s Rosebud Salve lip balm!

  17. Shannon G says:

    My fav lip gloss of the moment is DuWop venom gloss in Lantana, the light pink has been helping me get into spring mode!

  18. Kypris says:

    Funnily enough, I ALWAYS apply a good thick layer of lip balm before sleeping… makes my lips so much softer! I love the labello line – now taken over by nivea. Mmm and just a hint of scent that disappears fast. So good!

  19. Lisa S. says:

    I brush my lips when I brush my teeth morning and evening and I alway put on a liberal coat of Born Lippy lip balm from The Body Shop after. In the mornings I wipe off the lip balm before I put on my lip stick or gloss. As for my lips I have tons of glosses and lipsticks but my go to is Airy Fairy by Rimmel with some kind of pinky sheer and shimmery gloss. Airy Fairy is a great neutral to pink lip on me.

  20. jess says:

    moisturize lips before applying gloss or lipstick is crucial for non-flaky lips!

  21. Shannon says:

    I’ve been seriously loving on Neutrogena’s MoistureShine Lip Soother in Shine. It’s pretty much a straight-up gloss, not a lot of color. It also starts out a little sticky, but after about 5 minutes it kind of just sticks to your lips and provides lots of moisture and shine for quite a long time. I grabbed a tube when the sun broke through the clouds and I wanted some SPF for my lips, and I’m a huge fan now! I do wish it was a bit more pigmented, but the moisture it lends my lips totally makes up for it.

  22. snoopysteph says:

    When my lips are feeling flaky and dry I mix up a homemade scrub using olive oil and sugar. Rub all over your lips (and your hands while you’re at it!) and rinse. It’s a cheap and effective way of making your lips smooth & soft, especially if you do it at night.

  23. michelle says:

    i like creamsheen gloss in luster richer

  24. meg says:

    Old-school, but I love the standard Carmex in squeezy tubes – I slather a thick layer on right before bed every night. It soaks into my lips overnight to soften and keep the chaps away, even in winter time. And a tube is $1.50 or something ridiculously cheap – I haven’t found a high end balm I like better, and moisturizing lips overnight lets me use whatever gloss, stick, or balm I want to use during the day.

  25. Cindy says:

    My current favorite lipgloss is Clinique’s Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Raspberry (:

  26. Ashleigh says:

    Pretty color!
    I rub my toothbrush over my lips at night and apply Rosebud salve before bed.
    .-= Ashleigh’s last blog post… Friday Faves =-.

  27. caro says:

    aquaphor is the best for chapped lips–too bad they aren’t flavored!

  28. Alli says:

    To keep my lips in great shape I slather (and I do mean slather) on Smith’s Mocha Rose lip balm. It’s great and often times my lips are still a little glossy looking in the morning. My current favorite lip gloss is Perfectly Unordinary dazzleglass creme or whatever they were called. I just got it from a CCO and it rules.

  29. Malca says:

    I put on vaseline at night and during the day I use good ol fashioned carmex. I have a container of carmex in my car, a few at home and at my desk at work.

  30. Judy says:

    I use Vaseline to moisturize my lips every night, I find it works better than lip balms!

  31. Maggie says:

    My current favorite gloss has got to be Korres’s Cherry Lip Gloss in Fuchsia! πŸ˜€
    .-= Maggie’s last blog post… BBLL, Promised Swatches, and Luxury Pocky!? =-.

  32. Ann says:

    to keep my lips looking great, i gently exfoliate my lips with a towel after a shower. i also make sure i stay well hydrated!

  33. Lynn says:

  34. Chrissy says:

    The best trick is unfortunately not allowing the boyfriend to smooch! πŸ™‚

  36. j e n says:

  40. CC says:

    I use Vaseline at Night or Burt’s Bees if I have it on hand.

  41. Theresa says:

    I exfoliate my lips using a lip scrub (right now I’m using Sarah Happ; it is pricey, but it lasts forever) twice a week and I put on a rich lip balm right before I go to bed.

  42. sandy says:

    i love c.o.bigelow’s lemon pomergranate lip cream! it’s so moisturizing!

  43. Sharon says:

    I usually apply a bit of Vaseline on my lips before I go to sleep. That way, my lips are soft in the morning.

  44. Del La Sol says:

    My current favorite lipproduct is Lip Smackers Cotton Candy, it makes my lips really shiny, with a really soft pink color. Plus cheap!

  45. Tara says:

    I am obsessed with Monet Minerals Addiction lip gloss…it smells so good and makes my lips so soft. It doubles as a gloss AND a balm!

  46. Cecille says:

    Good ole rosebud salve! I hope I win!

  47. Katrina S. says:

    Right now I’m still loving MAC’s nymphette lipglass… it’s a great staple.

  48. Rachel says:

    I exfoliate my lips with my toothbrush and then put vaseline on my lips before bed. It helps keep them soft!

    Favorite lip gloss of the moment? I’m liking pixi lip gloss in a sheer red color. After about an hour on it sort of looks like a soft pink. Very cool!

  49. Cori says:

    i exfoliate once a week with a homemade sugar scrub

  50. Amber says:

    My favorite gloss is a tie between Philosophy’s Red Velvet Cake Lip Shine and NARS gloss in All Night Long.
    .-= Amber’s last blog post… Bookshelves =-.

  51. Paula says:

    I like the Zoya hot lips lip glosses.

  52. Megan Simpson says:

    To make you lipstick last longer and give more vibrant color, use a stain. I prefer stains as opposed to pencils myself.

  53. ssumeraa says:

    Hello Karen,

    I usually apply a lip balm first, and then the equality lipstick from the all races all ages collection by MAC, on top I’m loving the ember glow lipglass….perfect nude combo for everyday wear πŸ™‚

  54. Hyzenthlay says:

    I think my current favorite gloss is MAC Love Nectar. I’m also loving (but have apparently already lost since I bought it two weeks ago) NARS Orgasm lip gloss. ARGH!

  55. Lily says:

    I use Smith’s Strawberry Rosebud lip balm at night. In the morning, I wake up with insanely soft lips. My favorite lipgloss right now is Clinique’s lip smoothies in Goodness Grapecious. It’s so pretty and sheer and moisturizing!

  56. Anna says:

    Def applying lip balm before bed is a great idea, but when I forget to do that, I slick on some vaseline right before my morning shower and when I come out, my lips are absolutely PERFECT. It’s fast and super easy and then I don’t go to bed with a bunch of vaseline on my lips.

  57. Michelle says:

    I use a washcloth to exfoliate my lips and use Nivea lip balm. My fave lipglosses are Nymphette, Love Nectar, and Oyster Girl.

  58. Amanda says:

    Hey Karen! I make sure I put on lip balm every night before bed so that I have nice, soft lips in the morning. My current favorite lip gloss is Revlon’s Super Lustrous in Coral Reef. No offensive smell, not too sticky, and a gorgeous color. Best of all, it’s cheap. πŸ™‚
    .-= Amanda’s last blog post… importedmegami: @peejmele I haven’t seen Nausicaa yet! >_< =-.

  59. Andrea says:

    My current favourite lipgloss is either Love Nectar Lustreglass or Beaute Lipglass (LE) both by MAC!

  60. Aquaphor is one of my favorite things to use when my lips are super chapped!
    .-= Marilyn @ Lipgloss and Spandex’s last blog post… Yesterday’s walk + McMenamin’s =-.

  61. Amanda says:

    my favorite lip gloss is Lancome Summer Nights

  62. Miriam says:

    I have eczema, and as a result, my lips have a tendency to be very dry. I find that applying Aquaphor (Vaseline would work too) right after I brush my teeth/before I start the whole hair and makeup process, leaves my lips moisturized all day long!

  63. Jill says:

    Benetint is my favorite gloss!

  64. Jackie says:

    I use the LUSH Lip Scrub to keep my lips soft and smooth. It works great at exfoliating the lips. I love it!

  71. Shanelle says:

    my trick is burt’s bees lip balm… always keeps my lips soft and moisturized

  72. Kate & Zena says:

    Favorite lipgloss? Stila lipglaze. The stuff is insane. The only problem I have is the pen application. The “click-click-click” sound sounds like a machine gun when my classroom is quiet because everyone is taking a test!

  73. Nancy says:

    my favorite gloss? lancome’s juicy tubes PURE line. discontinued now, but i LOVED the soy creme color that I bought the last 2 i could find in my area!

  79. Shannon R says:

    Korres in pretty much all the colors… Although I also tried smashbox’s O recently and the color does always look great and it saves me time by making the decision of what color to wear for me!

  80. Kayvid says:

    MAC’s Fold n Tuck from Pret a Papier Collection is my fave LG at the moment…

  81. My current fave gloss is MAC lustreglass in spring bean. it makes my lips a gorgeous glazed caramel color, and looks so unique.

    .-= Megan’s last blog post… rainy mondays =-.

  86. Carolanne says:

    On nights when it’s extra chilly, my lips tend to dry out even more, and so what I do is apply lip balm like usual, but then i top it off with some tackier clear gloss; the thickness of the gloss makes sure my lip balm doesn’t fade away all night. =]

  87. noppi says:

    my current favourite is sephora’s pplumping lipgloss in nude beige.

    My tip is the usual way of caring lips. exfoliate with sugar and apply lipbalm before going to bed. πŸ™‚

  88. Nicole says:

    I’m a sucker for lip gloss. More like an addict, one might say. I literally cannot go without it. My lips must remain hydrated and these glosses look lovely. Thanks for entering me.

  89. Tip: wear lip balm with SPF! I’ve had sunburnt lips before and it’s SO NOT FUN πŸ™

  97. Stacy Z says:

    rosebud salve! I swear by it!

  98. Deb W says:

    Lately I’ve been addicted to Nyx Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Natural – just enough for every day, but great color and super cheap!!

  99. nihan says:

    i put my prep+prime microfine lip finisher before i start doing my makeup, it has a scrub side and a lip treatment side. scrub side is the best thing ever.

    and before i apple my lipstick or lipgloss i have to use urban decay lip primer potion. it is the second best thing πŸ™‚

    also when i am at home and before going to bed, i always wear some kind of a lip treatment like nivea lip moisturizers, mac naked honey skin salve or mac tinted lip conditioner

  123. noemii says:

  124. amy says:

    Jack Black’s Intense Therapy Lip Balm, Lemon and Chamomile flavor with SPF 25 is THE best lip balm I’ve ever used. Makes my lips soft and supple, glossy, smells great, tastes great, etc etc. I use it before application of anything else on my lips.

  125. Jackie says:

    I love my NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in French Kiss!

  126. Angela says:

    I have chronic dry lips and I use these awesome Ecotool round sponge-like things to help keep them smooth and soft. They’re so awesome at exfoliating.
    .-= Angela’s last blog post… wishlist wednesday: nars so famous set =-.

  127. Kathryn says:

    I get my lip gloss to stay on longer by gently exfoliating my lips with a wet wash cloth, applying lip balm without petroleum jelly or mineral oil in it, use MAC lip prep + prime, MAC subculture lip liner and MAC nymphette or Prrr lipglass. One other thing I do to get my gloss to last: I try not to rub my lips together too much after apllication or lick my lips at all.

  128. Seong says:

    my favorite lipgloss is MACs Queen Bee.
    love the color

  129. For luscious lips, I apply lip balm whenever I remember: especially before bed and prior to any lipstick application. πŸ˜€

    for great lips i exfoliate my lips everyday with a toothbrush. and put on Korres lipbutter at night. And I will have soft and luscious lips the next day!

  131. Kylie says:

    I use Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment underneath all other lip products. It’s expensive, but it’s the best.

  132. Jenn says:

    I use my good ‘ol Carmex right before bedtime.

  133. Sonja says:

    i love putting some e. ardens 8h creme on lips when i go to bed, and wake up with soft lips!!

  134. Vero says:

    I tent to use a lipbalm below any gloss or lipstick I use. I think my favourite gloss is Hotwire lacquer by Nars.

  135. Carol L says:

    My trick is to keep hydrated. I always feel like when I drink lots of water, I never have dry lips. I also make sure that I put chapstick on before bed.

  136. Maria says:

    Rather than using lip scrubs on my lips, I just take a clean, damp toothbrush and slough off any dead skin and put on some chapstick afterwards – keeps my lips nice and smooth.

    Oooh! I just fell in love with Lancombe Color Fever Gloss in Burning up! I didn’t think i’d be able to wear corally orange colours, but this is SO gorgeous! Especially with a light wash of Melon pigment over my eyelids – so pretty for summer!

    I also love that it smells like roses, not so fond of the rose-ish taste though, LOL.

    Hi, Karen,

    I love my easy-peasey lip scrub that I whip up in the kitchen a few times a week. A pinch of sugar in the palm, topped off with a bit of olive oil. Slicking on a lip balm like Carmex Ultra Moisture helps afterward.

  148. Joe says:

    Northing – but my wife does everything.

  149. HasinaHORROR says:

    My trick is to use a concealer as a base for very bright and nude colours, beacause my lipcolour is red/brownish. Or a translusent powder.
    And my favorite lipgloss is “L’oreal glam shine 6h” in the colour 103 “Forever Nude” It’s such a pretty rose colour with golden sparkles, the perfect nude colour :D. Too bad it’s goint to be discontinued :(.

  150. Ashley says:

    I use sephora’s eye primer under my lip gloss for special events. it stays longer and won’t feather.

  151. Hannah says:

    I’m loving Burt’s Bee’s lip balm in pomegranate- keeps my lips soft and shiny. And it smells amazing!

  152. Lucy says:

    I brush my lips with my toothbrush to make them smooth and then smother them with vaseline before I go to bed. Favourtie lipgloss has to be MAC Nymphette!! Perfect pale pink!

  158. Nina says:

    Ive been using Neosporin Night Lip Treatment religiously since last year and it works. Every 2 days or so I also do a sugar scrub to exfoliate my lips … πŸ™‚

  159. Annie says:

    a trick to keeping your lips soft is to use honey on them and leave it on for half an hour, no matter how tempting it is- do not lick the honey off! wipe or wash it off. this will also make your lips look plumper.

    my favourite lip product is barry m lip lacquer crayon πŸ™‚

  160. Lexi says:

    i love elizabeth arden’s 8 hr skin protectant. And, I’ve currently been loving love nectar- I fell back in love with it- ha.

  170. Charlotte says:

    My current fave is Revlon SL in Coral Reef – so springy!

  171. Avianna says:

    My current favorite gloss is from Gosh Cosmetics, although I am pretty sure the gloss I picked up was a LE from the holiday release. It’s black, which looks frightening in the tube, but when you slick it on it just ever so slightly deepens your lips, or if you’re wearing lip color, transforms it into this deep and velvety-plush looking version of the colour you’re wearing.

    This lipgloss: pretty magical.

  172. chibu74 says:

    haf a beautiful sunday

  181. Sarah says:

    My secret? When I brush my teeth at night I exfoliate my lips with a toothbrush. Then I apply some Aquaphor before bed. I wake up to softer, smoother and (dare I say it?) plumper lips! πŸ™‚

    • Sarah says:

      Oh my favorite lipgloss is currently a sephora lipgloss (bronzed beauty?). I got it along with two other lipglosses in the birthday gift they have.

  182. Liza says:

    Dazzleglass in Golidrocks

  183. Sophia says:

    I usually exfoliate my lips when I get out of the shower using a dry face cloth. I find that it works better then using any old lip scrub, to prevent it from going into my mouth. Then, I apply my favorite lipbalm (I’m currently loving a pina colada flavored lipbalm – yum!) My lips are all plump and ready to go! My favorite lipgloss is the new Liberty of London Tinted Lipglass by MAC in English Accents.

  184. Jian says:

    I buff my lips when I’m cleansing with my Clarisonic. Well, I don’t see why i shouldn’t! Then I smear on a thick layer of Kiehls, and I head off to bed.
    .-= Jian’s last blog post… New Food Blog: A Slice of Pinkfish Pie =-.

  185. Sara says:

    I simply mix a little Burt’s Bee’s lip balm with some sugar, and use it before I go to bed πŸ™‚

    My favourite gloss of the moment is Clinique Long Last Glosswear (with SPF – can’t beat that) in Guavagold.

  187. TaniaN says:

    The best lip care i swear by is NIVEA lip balm. Its in a chapstick like screw up tube the NAVY blue one. Its a blast of pure moisture that your lips will thank you for.

  188. krisprimps says:

    I always put on balm as the last thing I do before bed – Carmex and Qtica are my current faves for night treatment.

    Current fav gloss is NARS Dolce Vita… mmmm…

  193. Nirthikaa says:

    Vaseline the night before = love πŸ˜€

  194. Natalie says:

    To keep my lips looking great I always wear lip balm under lip gloss/lipstick. That way not only does my gloss/color apply better, I don’t feel the stickiness, and my lips don’t get dried out. I like Vaseline’s Lip Therapy and Aquafina’s original lip balm, both of which are really cheap too!!!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  195. Ellen says:

    My current fave lipgloss is Lancome Juicy Tubes (I know, I know, but I just now discovered how amazing they are) in Fifth Avenue Frosting.

    They’re super scrubby, and they taste fantastic. Their lip balms are great too.

  198. Lisa says:

  209. Crissy says:

    I love Bath and Body Works’ Liplicious in Raspberry Jam! I’ve gone through quite a few tubes of it.

  212. Aparnaa says:

    My current favorite lipgloss is Stila’s Lip Glaze in Kitten. It’s the perfect nude – it reminds me of this page in the Color of Beauty by Iman where they have a vamp look with champagne lip gloss and perfect vampy eyes and I feel like a total sexpot when I wear it!

    Also, Project Runway – I liked Anthony too much, but of the three, I think the right one won.

  213. Julie says:

    i love benefit products! i was at sephora the day of my prom to grab a few things to do my makeup but just my luck one of the benefit makeup artists were in the house and did my prom makeup for me! it was wonderful! I never had a chance to try benefit products until that day. she did this amazing neutral smokey eye with a bright lip using benetint and i got compliments all day! i hope i can try this one out πŸ™‚

  214. Kat says:

    For some reason, lip balms don’t seem to work its effect on me. Something I do is apply a clear thick lip gloss at night and when I wake up in the morning, the dead layer of skin on my lips is totally loose so I just scrub that off with a face towel. Smooth surface with no unsightliness. Works every time I tell ya.

  215. Molly says:

    I like using mac tendertones before I go to bed. Makes my lips so conditioned by the morning.

  216. Hailey says:

    .-= styleezta’s last blog post… Trendy Tuesdays =-.

  225. Madelynn says:

    For lips: moisturize, exfoliate and protect. Chapstick moisturizer with SPF 15 is my favorite friend: costs one dollar and is a miracle on my lips. For an exfoliator, I use Benefit’s Dr. Feelgood scrub (it’s expensive, but so worth it!).

  226. Tamara says:

    I slather on quite a bit of lip balm before bed (I’m currently loving those spherical organic EOS ones), and wake-up with a smooth and supple pout!

  227. Nina says:

    I don’t have a particular spiffy trick – But i do make sure to apply lip soother and lick the edge of a glass before i drink so my gloss doesn’t smear πŸ™‚

  228. Rachel says:

    I love the Korres Jasmine lip butter!

    My current favorite lipgloss is NARS Female Trouble !
    .-= Katie’s last blog post… I have really long hair. =-.

  231. Diane says:

    I like to keep my lips in tip top shape by either taking sugar and the minty version of rosebud salve. And when I’m not lazy I’ll take a teeny bit of toothpaste and brush it on my lips in small circular motions. I usually mix sugar and the minty rosebud salve because when I use the toothbrush method it makes my lips abit dry :(.

    My favorite lip gloss is CO Bigelows Cinnamint Lip Shine πŸ™‚

  232. Mel says:

    I apply vaseline on my lips before bed when they feel dry and I wake up with nice soft lips!

  291. Diane K. says:

    I am a make up junkie to the extreme but my greatest weakness is lip gloss. When I enter a department store, I am literally pulled toward the cosmetic counters by some unearthly force that no person can fight. The prettier the gloss, the more weak in the knees I become. I can spend hours going from counter to counter in the cosmetics department, driving anyone I’m with absolutely nuts, which is why I now only shop alone.

    I love the MAC glosses but there’s something about these new Benefit glosses that keeps me coming back to this page for another look at your swatches. All the colors are beautiful and I think they’d all look good on all different skin tones which is pretty unusual.

    So for my beauty tip that will make even your prettiest glosses look even better is this:

    First, I line my lips with Mally’s nude lipliner for glosses. This liner is the best because it’s nude in color, so you never get that horrible Bozo the Clown look where you have a lipliner ring around your lips but the lipstick or gloss on your lips has disappeared. However, it creates a nude barrier, preventing your lipstick and glosses from bleeding. This particular lip pencil by Mally is designed specifically to prevent lipgloss from bleeding. Personally, I don’t know of any other pencil that does the same thing.

    Then I apply a thin coat of Urban Decay lip primer

    THEN, I coat my lips with Advanced therapy LipFusion XL (The $50 treatment) and let it set for about 45 seconds, giving your lips that plumped look most of us wish we had permanently.

    Finally, you put on your favorite lipstick followed by your favorite gloss OR you simply apply your favorite lip gloss(my personal preference is gloss ONLY)

    As for my favorite gloss for the moment, and my answer would change minute to minute depending on my mood, I would have to say it is presently Yve St Laurent (YSL) Exclusive Golden Gloss #29. These glosses are quite pricey but in my opinion, well worth it.

    Thanks for this great giveaway.

    I make sure that I put lip balm on every night before I go to bed. My lips are always chap free because of this.

  293. Izzy says:

    Ahhh! I love glosses. Anyway, my tips:

    Exfoliate those babies with a soft toothbrush (or you can use some sugar mixed with a bit of water, or you can buy a lip exfoliator…but I go the toothbrush route!) then apply Vaseline on them before going to bed. This makes your lips super soft! I do it often, it works wonders especially when it’s nasty outside!

  294. Rachel C says:

    Right now, my absolute FAVORITE lipgloss is Air Kiss by Clinique πŸ™‚

  295. Glosslizard says:

  329. austenfan says:

    I keep my lips soft by religiously exfoliating with a sugar scrub that I make once a week, sufficient to last an entire week, and keep in my shower. So every morning I slough off nasty dead skin and it’s super easy when I’m showering. Next, Palmer’s cocoa butter lipbalm. Often overlooked, it’s simply the bomb.

  330. Petra says:

    I also use a lipbalm before going to bed (really like MAC’s Naked Honey Salve for this purpose), and lately I’ve been loving my Moistly lipgelee from MAC -it may have been discontinued recently. I love the feel and scent of it, and that it contains no shimmer. Only a sheer wash of red-berry.

I have lip balms stashed all over my apartment. I use it frequently. Thank you.

  369. Jess says:

    My HG lip balm/treatment whatevs is Eucerin Aquafor. It’s not even a lip balm, it’s just an intense moisturizer, but nothing I’ve tried has left my lips feeling moisturized for so long.

    I received a sample of La Roche-Posay’s Ceralip from a friend. It is the best lip repair cream! I put it on before going to sleep and I wake up with the softest lips ever!

    Nice beautiful plump lips are as easy as cleansing and exfoliating with a soft toothbrush & lip balm. I really haven’t experimented to much with lips glosses, I’m more of a primer, liner & matte lips stick gal for the more glamorous look. But I’ll be sure to try this lip gloss… it really looks pretty
