The Lipstick League - Week of 3.14.16

The Lipstick League Question of the Week

 What lip balm(s) do you reach for when your lips are in dire need of moisture/hydration? 

G's answer: When I need to break out the big guns, I reach for L'Occitane 100 Percent Pure Shea Butter or Glossier Balm Dotcom.

The Lipstick League Links of the Week

Beautygeeks - Wanna re-use that empty cushion-compact? Here’s how to make your own version of BB-cushion foundation – safely.

Beauty Junkies Unite - Amber reviews the latest from Urban Decay -- Beached Bronzer. There are two shades, and they're matte -- great for almost anyone!

Beautygeeks is Currently Craving: a whack of Dr. Jart skincare stuff, starting with the Water Fuse Water-Full Hydrogel Mask… they’ve just shown up on!.


  1. I love that Bite Agave lip mask. Its amazing.

  2. When my lips need some TLC I reach for my Fresh Sugar lip scrub and follow up with the Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy serum.

  3. I prefer Carmex stick lip balm.

  4. I love a couple I found on Etsy, by FragrantBathBoutique. They have a honey one that tastes just like honey and doesn't feel super thick, but still moisturizing. I also love the Burt's Bees tinted balms, and stuff by Lipstick Queen. Those always feel good and I get a touch of color.

  5. Badger Cocoa Butter Lip Balm. It's so creamy, and a big .25 oz stick is just under $5 at
    I also like Herbacin Kamille, but it's so hard to find at a decent price.
