Saying I have an addiction to lip gloss and lip balm is putting it lightly. VERY lightly.
In fact, after spending last Sunday afternoon decluttering my makeup bins – a chore that took most of the afternoon and tested all of my husband’s patience – I was able to whittle down the pile to the “bare essentials”… you know, the stuff I need on a daily basis.
My name is Lena and I’m addicted to lip stuff.
You’ll notice that I don’t actually own any lipstick (sooo 1994) but instead, have hoarded every shiny, sparkly, goopy, glorious lip gloss and lip balm known to mankind (I have a separate drawer for my 32 Lip Smackers and “occasional” glosses). It actually took all my strength to dispose of about 20 additional products, but as my husband so eloquently put it: “Either they go or I go. Get all that sh*t out of here NOW.”
And so I’m feeling very feng shui and uplifted now that I’ve let go of the makeup that was obviously standing in my way of fame and fortune. Wait a minute – what did I do with that Chanel gloss I bought in New York last year? OMG I think I tossed it by accident. Waaa! Waaa!
Moving on. Since I’m all about quirky and unique packaging, of course I have a love affair with eos (evolution of smooth) lip products. I mean, they come packaged in little spheres! Ridiculously cute.
I am SO over tubed lip balms. Smarten up!
But it’s more than just great looks – eos lip balms are 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free . They also happen to be packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, so your lips stay moist, soft and sensationally smooth. I suppose the easiest way to put it is that they cram all the good stuff in and leave all the bad stuff out. #genius
And, after I was sent the little pods for review, I developed yet another addiction – this time, to collect them all! At the present time, only Summer Fruit, Honeysuckle Honeydew and Sweet Mint are available in Canada, so I’ll have to remember on my next trip down to the US to pick up Lemon Drop, Tangerine and Strawberry Sorbet. WANT!
After two weeks of using eos lip balm almost exclusively, I have the most kissable lips ever. You’re welcome, hubby. Available at Rexall and Shoppers Drug Mart in TO, or online from Well.ca for just $3.99 (plus FREE shipping in Canada!).
