Jane Iredale Lip Drink Review

Press SampleLip Balms with an SPF, and an option to add a tint of color?  Yes, please!  Jane Iredale Lip Drink lip balms are just what this desert dweller craves.  An alternative to the standard slick balm, these feel more like a hybrid lipstick/balm in texture.  Available in a completely sheer option, and two shades: Buff (a sheer neutral) and Crush (a sheer berry).

Jane Iredale Lip Drink doesn’t only feel great on the lips, it has an SPF15 to protect them from sun exposure.  Known as the “skin care brand” Jane Iredale strives to use high-end ingredients known to be safe, soothing, and superior!  As a result, this formula is gluten-free, vegan, and cruelty-free!

Retail price is $15.

NARS Velvet Shadow Sticks

Press SampleI have been having such a blast playing with these NARS Velvet Shadow Sticks. They’re the focal point of the NARS Fall 2015 makeup collection, and so versatile!

The color is intense, and the formula is so blendable it’s easy to create a one-shade 2 minute eye look simply by applying at the upper eye line and blending upward with a brush or even a fingertip!

Of course, there’s more than that!  These retractable sticks are super portable, making them a great choice for someone on the go.  I mean, as much as I love NARS Eye Paint, I can’t see touching that up in the office restroom.  These Velvet Shadow Sticks are much friendlier for mid-day touchups.  The formula is  long-wearing, crease resistant, and simply feel fantastic on the skin!

Retail price is $28 per stick.
