once a whore, always a whore!

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

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

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.

Reviews!

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.

Sephora Friends & Family 2009

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. =/

Lip Balms

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.
