This beauty blogger is a long-time fan of the brand Treat Beauty. This winter, when my lips were dry and cracking, I purchased Treat Beauty Soft Candy Lip Scrub to get them back to a soft and supple state. This formula is indeed a treat! This highly-emollient scrub is coarse enough to soften rough lips, and even has a super-sweet taste.
With Raging Rouge, I strive to deliver only the best. My favorite things are photographed, reviewed, and swatched. My not so favorite things? I wouldn’t dream of wasting your time with a post.
So generally you’ll read about familiar brands on Raging Rouge, and the reason is simply because they are superior.
Every now and then, I am surprised by a new brand that outperforms some old favorites. IT Cosmetics was exactly that surprise when I was introduced to the brand about one year ago. The makeup I have had the opportunity to sample has been heavenly, delivering a beautiful result every time. Their tools are equally divine. I had sworn off mineral foundation a while ago, but their Celebration Foundation brought me back to the fold, with its amazing coverage and finish.
But I digress. Today I’m actually introducing you to their Vitality Lip Flush Butter Gloss in the shade “I Believe”. This gloss even FEELS good on the lips, and using the word “butter” in the name is brilliant simply because it’s true. This gloss is buttery and decadent. The color? I’ll let my swatch of “I Believe” below, speak for itself.
The Vitality Lip Flush Butter Gloss formula actually contains anti-aging and moisturizing ingredients, so you’re not only scoring streak-free saturated color, but feel-good lip therapy!
Retail price is $24 per tube. Worth every penny!

For Spring 2014, Tarte has launched the Power Pigment lip crayon. I adore the form-factor of a lip crayon, as it provides precision and generally wears much like a lipstick/gloss hybrid. Power Pigments deliver a wonderful splash of color, and coordinate with the Tarte Cheek Stain lineup. Before I dive deeper into the product itself, admire the pretty packaging!
NARS recently launched their Spring 2014 Color Collection, and viewing the gorgeous array of color was like spotting a Gerbera Daisy bloom peeking out of a snow drift.
Purple still reigns in the world of makeup (pardon my Prince pun). So MAC has announced proudly that Heroine Lipstick is BACK and now part of the permanent line.
Heroine is an extremely vivid purple that has cool undertones and a matte finish.
Retail price is $15.

It’s so important to remember that lips need sun protection, too! When you purchase something as delectable as Sun Bum Lip Balm in the flavor “Key Lime”, you won’t need any reminders to apply. The scent of this balm is so divine, you’ll be reapplying almost fanatically throughout the day, just to get a fix!
Sun Bum Lip Balm has an SPF of 30, and also contains moisturizing Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, to help keep the lips soft and smooth all year round.
Retail price is $4. Sun Bum lip balm can be purchased at Nordstrom.com and Amazon.com.
