Lipgloss Whores

Hi girls! Is this thing on?

I'm moving and getting rid of the majority of my balms and glosses. I kept a few though-- Avon Cafe Treats, dear departed Skinmarket's Lip Lava, Rachel Perry Lip Lovers.... and I still buy here and there, just not like crazy. I like the new Girl Scout Cookie Lip Smackers quite a bit.

My point in posting is that if anyone here is in the Baltimore or DC region or has someone there who could ship these to them, have at my collection! Please! I'd love to give these to a fellow whore!!

Here's my craigslist ad. If you answer please let me know if you are from here!:

Yankee Candle Lip Balm reviews [Sep. 5th, 2011|04:49 pm]
Lipgloss Whores

[Current Mood |accomplishedaccomplished]
[Current Music |MLS - Huckleberry Parfait]

One before the cut:

Brand: Yankee Candle
Name: Cinnamon & Sugar Flavored Lip Balm
Color: Mustard yellow with slight silver shimmer in the tube. Shows up as shimmery and mostly clear on the lips. It does appear as a very faint yellow if it collects in any area (dead skin, corners of mouth, etc.), which doesn't look too nice. I'm not a fan of how this one looks, so I will be wearing this one at home only.
Scent: Brown sugar and soft spices. It's not too spicy, which is nice.
Taste: Not much of anything. No sweetness.
Texture: Smooth and pleasant. Not waxy, greasy or thick. Stays on a decent amount of time, so I don't have to reapply that often. There is the tiniest hint of grittiness because of the mica shimmer in this flavor.
Packaging: Comes in a short and wide tube that looks like a mini Yankee candle. (0.14 oz)
Ingredients: Octinoxate (7.5%), Oxybenzone (3%), Palm Oil, Beeswax, Olive Oil, Fragrance/Flavor, Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Tocopherol, Rosemary Extract, Hemp Seed Oil, Synthetic Wax, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Red 6 Lake, Iron Oxides, Blue 1 Lake.
Price: 62 cents (during the Semi-Annual Sale with additional discounts). Normally $3.99
Purchased From: YankeeCandle.com
Repurchase?: Maybe. This flavor has grown on me. I was expecting it to smell like something else when I bought it, but I do think it smells nice after getting used to it. I think it will be even more pleasant in colder weather. I might try the Spiced Pumpkin and Sparkling Cinnamon flavors before repurchasing this particular one, if I could get them at a nice discount.

Eco Lips and Mostly Memories reviews [Jun. 25th, 2011|08:55 pm]
Lipgloss Whores

[Current Music |Eco Lips - Dagoba Mint Chocolate balm]

If anyone still reads this community...here are some reviews. (I recently bought some Yankee Candle lip balms, so I should be reviewing those sometime this year as well.)

One before the cut:

Brand: Eco Lips
Name: Dagoba Mint Chocolate Lip Balm
Color: Brown, goes on clear
Scent: Like an Andes mint in the tube, but fades to a mostly minty smell on the lips. That soon fades on the lips as well.
Taste: None, no sweetness either
Texture: Smooth, not waxy or greasy. Not too thin or thick. Pretty nice, actually.
Packaging: Tube (0.15 oz)
Ingredients: Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Jojoba Seed Oil, Dagoba Organic Cacao Powder, Organic Chocolate Flavor, Organic Peppermint Essential Oil, Vitamin E, Organic Calendula Flower Extract, Organic Rosemary Essential Oil.
Price: About $2.44, on sale (regular price: $3.49)
Purchased From: EcoLips.com
Repurchase?: I would have to think about repurchasing. I'm not too sure at this point. This has one of the strongest cooling effects on the lips that I've ever experienced. I happen to love that, which makes this balm a lot better. I am disappointed by the quick disappearance of the scent, though. And a touch of stevia would make this balm a lot more delicious. But the overall quality of the balm is high. It's not the most moisturizing balm for super dry and chapped lips, but it's fine if you don't have those issues a lot.

The rest are under here...Collapse )

I just wrote a review for one of my favorite products in the WORLD, eos Lip Balm Spheres. Even if you don't read the review, I still highly reccomend this lip balm, especially since winter is now upon us and the wheather is a cruel mistress to our lips.

I have two of them today: Lip Smacker 100% Natural and Blue Q Get Real balms.

Brand: Lip Smacker
Name: 100% Natural in Vanilla Bean
Color: No tint, goes on clear
Scent: Very buttery, rich vanilla
Taste: None
Texture: Thick, smooth, and glossy. Actually, this balm starts off a tiny bit gritty, but it melts immediately on the lips.
Packaging: Tube
Ingredients: Castor Seed Oil, Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil, Olive Fruit Oil, Beeswax, Flavor, Carnauba Wax, Vanilla Fruit Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Soybean Lipids, Coconut Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate.
Price: $2.29
Purchased From: Ulta
Repurchase?: Maybe not this particular flavor, but I want to try the Pink Guava one (which was sold out at my Ulta). The texture is pleasant. The only thing I have to complain about with the performance of the balm is that sometimes this stuff somehow goops up all over my teeth, which is nasty. The ingredients are really nice for a Lip Smacker product, especially when you consider the low price. These are supposed to be dye, paraben, and gluten free. I didn't like how the package and tube weren't sealed at all; these should definitely be sealed if they're selling them at retail stores. And the print on the label is rubbing off in some spots already.

Yay! The LipGlossWhores Photobucket account is back up, even though the mods aren't removing the spammy sales.

Most of you probably know this already, but Sephora is having their Friends & Family sale -- 20% off with code FF2009 through 11/2/09.

Urban Decay is having their Friends & Family sale sometime before Xmas - and it's usually 30% off - so you might want to wait on your UD goodies for a better deal.



Feel free to post your wishlists and/or hauls as a comment to this post. =)



P.S. What happened to this community? Is it officially dead now? The photobucket account isn't even active anymore, so the background pictures for the journal aren't showing up. Plus, the last few entries have been sales/shilling and against community rules. I wish the mods would let someone else run the community if they aren't going to. I would hate to see it end up being deleted one day. =/

A tiny review...My Mineral Bath and Body. She has colored lipbalms.I like it quite a lot... I especially love the texture, very comparable to mine own :) And it's nice to not have to put a base balm layer before putting on your lip stick.It's a tad on the pricier side though ($6.99/tube), otherwise, it's great lipgloss/balm. sellingCollapse )

Lipgloss Whores

dressfox
Name: Lip Stain in Berry Smooch
Brand: Covergirl
Tint: bright berry-ish.
Scent: Peaches
Tastes like: CHEMICALS.
Price: $8
Container: Plastic pen.
Repurchase: UM, HELL NO. It gave me a rash of a bunch of little tiny bumps all over my lips. I looked like I had a plague for about three days, and they itched so bad! I'm assuming I had a reaction to the dye, but jeez. Never again.


Name: Cranberry-Orange lip balm
Brand: Kiss My Face
Tint: none
Scent: really sweet orange-cranberry bread.
Tastes like: oranges.
Price: $3.99 at Borders Books and Music.
Container: the standard lip balm tube.
Repurchase: Of course! This is the perfect lip balm. It's thick and goes on really smooth. It moisturizes and smells so good. This is like, that perfect lip balm to put on before bed so that you wake up with lovely lips. A ten in my book.

Hi gals,

I'm not sure if this is allowed, but I noticed that Smashbox was on Gilt Groupe for a couple more days and there are some amazing lip gloss options for cheap! (There's a set of three glosses in the colors Candid, Flash & Hype for only $18!)

Hi! I'm new, and came here for some help.

I got a lipgloss when I was younger, and I don't remember much about it except:

1. It was a clear lipgloss with whitish iridescent glitter
2. The tube was clear with gold writing, the cap was also gold
3. The gloss smelled like cola (think gummy cola bottles)
4. It had a doe-foot applicator
5. I'm pretty sure this was a drugstore brand

I remember this being the best thing ever, and was wondering if anyone remembers anything like this? If someone knows what brand this was? Does anyone know of any other communities I can post this in?

I've been searching forever, and so far Makeup Alley has been no help.

I apologize if this isn't allowed here, but I wanted to let everybody know about the lip balm blog I started a little over a month ago. I'm really excited about it, and love running it.

I figured that there'd be a lot of people here interested, so..

Review for Sprite lipsmackers (3 set) [Feb. 22nd, 2009|05:38 pm]
Lipgloss Whores

tastyrainbows
Name: Lip Smackers
Brand: Bonne Belle
Tint: Clear
Scent: Sprite soda (Yeah, sprite, like the soda made by the coca cola company!)
Smells like: Sprite or zangy, zesty lemonade. It's v. refreshing and bubbly (at least in my opinion.)But it's good because even though it has the zestiness of lemonade and the bubbliness of soda, it's still smooth and soothing enough to be used on chapped lips. It's pretty sweet, but not in a sickening or sappy way :) I personally like it a lot.
Price: Retail price is $13.00 AUD (about $8.50 U.S) for a set of 3...but at my lj it is $7.50 AUD ($4.80) for a set of 3.
Found at: http://tastyrainbows.livejournal.com/
Repurchase: Yes. It's definately my favourite of the lipsmacker's soda editions for the unique-ness and the flavour.

Lipgloss Whores

I was having makeup nostalgia today, and remembered the line of lipsticks and lip glosses from Revlon called Street Wear (remember those??)

Anyway, my favorite shade was Jelly, a silvery lavender-y color.  This line is long since discontinued (at least 10 years), and I was wondering if anyone remembers this shade and if there's anything out on the market that is a look-a-like. I'm fine with department store or drugstore brands, but probably wouldn't want to drop more than $25 on something.

I did find some on ebay, but I am worried that since it's such an old product that the original color hasn't held up.
