I’ve never had problems with chapped lips like I’m having this winter. This situation actually began in September (as a reaction to an ingredient in a new lip balm, I believe) and it’s morphed into a repeated cycle of dryness and peeling. Indoor heating and the constant weather changes seem to be the main culprits.
I made a trip to the local mall last weekend, and on a visit to Kiko Cosmetics I spied this lip care/color set on the sale table. It includes a lip scrub and a tinted balm, available in four color/flavor options. Continue reading
Some fans of Korean beauty brands are obsessed with cutting-edge skincare; others rave about the mascaras and eyeliners. Me? I keep gravitating towards lip colors, as usual.

In the meantime, I’m smiling over the illustration of a frog reclining in front of a fairytale castle, because it reminds me of something…
I’ve been working such a strange schedule lately that I’m not even sure what day it is, and I’m running slightly short on sleep. All the same, I’m really enjoying my new part-time museum job (as well as my assorted freelance jobs, which continue!), and I always like to celebrate a new project with a new lipstick. My latest pick is Marc Jacobs Sheer Lip Gel in Eat Cake, from the “New Nudes” Collection.
The temperatures have dropped below freezing here in New York again, so it’s the perfect time for me to write a more in-depth post about Lipstick Queen’s Ice Queen. I did preview it back in November—see here!
The FedEx truck made a stop at my door tonight, and I’ve just opened a sample of Lipstick Queen’s new product for winter/holiday 2014: Ice Queen, a snowy-white illuminating lipstick that brings “a whisper of silver and gold and a hint of iridescence” to lips.
