New Beauty Favorite: COVERGIRL's Oh Sugar Lip Balm
So up and down those bulls-eyed aisles I went, throwing stuff into my basket faster than Spiderman repelling down a skyscraper. You'd be amazed at the freedom that comes when money is no object -- must be how the Kardashians feel. Anyway, I approached the beauty section, illuminating like a light from heaven, and that's when things REALLY went cray-cray, as today's young people would say. It didn't take me long to spot them, just hanging out on a middle shelf all nice and pretty like.
COVERGIRL's Oh Sugar lip balm! And they're TINTED!
Apparently, they're new for spring and because I'm overly addicted to lip balm (I'll be doing a full post on my entire collection this summer), I knew I just had to have them. My mom evidently didn't agree with my need to have these, as demonstrated by her eye roll when I showed her my purchases. But, as they say, beauty is pain, so I suppose that is my price to pay for looking fashionable.
In the spirit of trying new things on So About What I Said (thanks to your Annual Feedback Survey comments!), I thought I would share my thoughts on COVERGIRL's new line. Full disclosure first, though: I had WAY too much fun doing this photo shoot. Way too much fun. Hey, maybe I really am a Kardashian! OK, here we go...
Overall thoughts: Love the cute packaging of these -- you know I'm a sucker for design and typography, and these hit a home run. They're really moisturizing and actually stay on your lips for more than 10 minutes! Plus, who can resist a classic wash of color? Have you tried them, friends? What did you think? Have a favorite shade?
P.S. I'd love to do more posts like this -- maybe even a monthly series? Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Let me know in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter!
