:: Yummy Yummy Lipalicious ::

Okay, I'll going to buffer this email by saying that I am not being paid to blog about all of the product I've been endorsing! I just have so much on my "to blog about" list and I'm trying to get caught up.
While I was working in Edmonton with my SIL I couldn't help but notice her lips. Sure, that sounds weird, but not being a lipstick or lip color girl, I try to keep my eyes peeled for something that looks natural and looks good.
She let me try her C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Tint.

Let me tell you ladies, this stuff is seriously awesome. It's made with real peppermint oil and so it doesn't taste like petroleum and it makes your breath and mouth taste fresh. It's not sticky and it gives a slight natural tint with lots and shine. Not only that but it really works to moisturize and protect my lips and it never dries them out.

Shawna had offered to pick some up for me next time she made a trip south but it turned out that there was a B&B Work in the West Ed Mall (where they were making a trip) and she picked me up a few so I won't run out for a while!

Let me stress that I don't do lip gloss/tint/stick or anything but Burt's Bees Wax lip balm. I've used Mac's PlushGlass before but find it sticky and always used chapstick underneath.

To summarize, this stuff rocks!

I love that stuff too!! I've had a couple... one that is clear and shiny and one with a slight pink tint. It's wonderful. Only thing is, if you have a cut or chapped lips the peppermint can sting a bit - so beware! ;)
I agree, MAC lip glass is so sticky! Great for lasting a long time but I don't like that feeling either.
Yay for girly products! ;)

Thanks for the tip! I picked some up while I was out Christmas shopping and I LOVE it! The right amount of shine and yummy smell :)
