Lip Essentials

Last month, Tanaz, our social media maven, took to YouTube and Facebook to review some of her favorite lip products! She even hosted a Facebook party where she gave away each of the products.

In case you missed it, you can watch the videos and see her lip essentials here. Be sure to tune into our Facebook page to get notifications about our next party – they take place every Wednesday and always include awesome beauty product giveaways!

She starts with LipSmart to prep and enhance her lips.

Then go NUDE! The Nudestix Lip and Cheek Pencil in Flesh. This extra creamy lip color, lip liner, lip balm and cheek color does it all. It’s super soft and offers even color payoff and smooth blendability —without feathering or bleeding for a soft natural lip. The award-winning Lip + Cheek Pencil is infused with lip and skin moisturizing ingredients, including Shea butter and vitamin E, and peptides to add radiance and support youthful plumpness. This bestselling product is a dual-action; touch n’go makeup stick providing a quick and easy look, full of fresh-faced fun and ultimate color.

For the final step, we have theBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes in Sentimental and Loyal! This long-wearing formula has a comfortable matte finish with no commitment issues. These matte vanilla mint liquid lipsticks are stuck on you without feeling clingy!
