Back in my musical theater days, I wasn’t one of those people who could do it all — sing, dance AND act. They existed, though, little jacks and jills of all trades on the stage, and we called them triple threats!
Bobbi Brown’s new Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15 lipsticks ($22) are a kinda like that because the 12 of them do a little bit of everything.
Each tube’s a sheer (unflavored and unscented) lipstick, moisturizing treatment and sunblock rolled into one.
I’ve been rotating among Pink Glisten, Raspberry Pink and Moonlight Rose. Each one shines softly with a consistently thin, non-sticky texture, three-hour wear time and semi-transparent opacity. Great for casual, summery lips.
And they’re hydrating, too, although maybe not hydrating enough to bring back a pair of cracked, dry lips from the brink, but they should pack enough moisture to smooth out a few rough spots.
NOTE: For heavy-duty lip hydration, give Clinique Superbalm a try.

Speaking of rough spots, there’s the price… The tubes are skinny (.07 oz!) for $22, but I think they’re adorable. If you like lips that look innocent, fresh and kissably soft, you might give ‘em a try. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B+

You know you’re a beauty addict whenâ€¦
Have you had any “you know you’re a beauty addict when” moments lately? I had two today. The first was when I donned a sweatshirt and found six lipglosses in the pockets. SIX! I still have no idea how they got there.
The second was when I saw this flyer in the mail and exclaimed, “Oh, cool!”
I’m hoping I can drag El Hub to the store after dinner tonight. It’ll be my booty (beauty) call, LOL!
So how was your Wednesday? What are you up to tonight?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
