Soft Candy Lip Scrub, Treat Beauty

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.

Retail price is $22. You can purchase this at TreatBeauty.com or Amazon.com.

IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Butter Gloss

IT Cosmetics, Vitality Butter Gloss In I Believe

IT Cosmetics, Vitality Butter Gloss In I Believe

Press Sample 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.

Power Pigments: New From Tarte!

Press SampleFor 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!
