365 Days of Lip Looks - May 2, 2011 f. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss & EOS lipbalm

I am a bit of an oxymoron as it relates to my love of beauty.  While I enjoy learning about new products and acquiring them I do not think of myself as a collector, like whats the fun in buying stuff that you dont use?  Waste not, want not I always say.  In conjunction with that I hate when a product is overly hyped.  I tend to not want to purchase it if too many people have proclaimed it to be the second coming or whatever.  Like no product should wield that much power.  Now, that said, there are times when I am pleasantly pleased by something that is hyped.  In this case I am referring to the Evolution of Smooth Lip Balm Smooth Spheres.  Here is what EOS has to say:


Can a lip balm make you smile? We think so. That's why we invented this one.
  • Long-lasting moisture
  • Shea butter & vitamin E
  • Smoothes on clear
  • New smooth sphere precisely glides on to lips
  • Twist-off top
  • Gluten-free
  • Paraben-free
  • Petrolatum-free
  • Phthalate-free
eos lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, eos keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.

Twist off top. Pucker up. Smooth on. Smile.





I have two of these, the one pictured above which is Summer Fruit, and I also have Honeysuckle Honeydew.  I picked them up from WalMart one day totally not planning to but once I saw them I couldn't resist of course and like I said they were worth the hype.  Sometimes lip balms can be too thin, or too thick and/or don't last.  This one is none of those things.  The perfect consistency and they are long lasting.  Not to mention they smell amazing, just like real fruit and they taste good too...not that I go around eating lip balm but I'm just sayin...the EOS Lip Balm Smooth Spheres retail for $3.29.

After applying my lip balm I realized I was short on time so I made it a "liner and a lip" day.  Once again its a paired down lip look but I didn't feel like having to touch up too much today.  I used my Revlon Super Lustrous Lip gloss in Lilac Pastelle which a lot of people say is a dupe for MAC's Lavender Whip and Yves Saint Laurent Golden Gloss in Light Lavender 18.  I only have the one so I cant compare but I do love it.  On to the pics!
