Peony Flower Fusion lipstick
Hey there, nice girl with the hopelessly dry lips. You know I love ya, but that peeling ‘pout … not so cute! My pucker gets crazy dry, too, so when I find pretty, moisturizing lipsticks I feel compelled to share them. You, too, can say buh-bye to Saraha-dry lips with Origins Flower Fusion lipsticks ($16). Yes, girl, Origins!

Origins isn’t a company I’ve paid a lot of attention to, but products like Flower Fusion are starting to change the way I think about the brand. These lipsticks are all about moisture in a big way. The official marketing claims their secret emollient ingredient is wax derived from plant petals and leaves.
Winter Rose Flower Fusion lipstick
You know how soothing it feels to massage a good lotion into your hands when they’re cracked and dry? Well, Flower Fusion lipstick is like that but for dry lips. The texture feels unusually slick and smooth for a lipstick. If I press my lips together and rub them back and forth, there’s no friction, like my lips are sliding on ice.

There are 26 shades in the collection, including the two limited edition ones shown here, Winter Rose (shimmery berry) and Peony (violet red). I like how they give my lips shine and color without appearing overly dark or dramatic. These are going to be great colors for work!
While the lipsticks are taste-free, they do have a light fragrance. It’s very light — kinda like a subtle mix of licorice and Ricola cough drops — but fades quickly and isn’t a bother to me.

Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
These are a little more expensive than MAC lipsticks, which run about $14 each, but I think their highly moisturizing texture makes them worth a closer look.
So, I stayed up late last night to finish Breaking Dawn. I’d been drawing it out to savor the story, but all good things must end. Now I’m looking for a new book. Do you have any suggestions for me? It doesn’t have to be sci-fi, lol! I’m a total nerd.
Hope your Wednesday is going well.
