I’m going to go ahead and blame my impulse beauty product buys on the blogs that I read and I read a lot of blogs… I mean a lot. This morning my Bloglovin feed was at almost 1000 unread posts…talk about overload! So I’m sure you can only imagine what that means for my bank account. My go-to blog read is Man Repeller; Leandra’s quirky style and laid back approach to beauty is something I look forward to in her posts. When my focus landed on the title “Henna Lips” followed by an image of a bright green lipstick I couldn’t be stopped – I clicked “read more.” In a nutshell, the lipstick tints your lips a specific shade of pink according to your body’s pH level – (nerd alert) oh the science of beauty!
Above you can see it turned a bright pink on me and Kristina but stayed that raspberry colour on Stefanie, not quite what I was hoping for but I mean for the low price of $3.82 plus shipping on my trusty sidekick, eBay, how could I resist? I, of course, enviously hoped the lipstick would give me the same pretty berry color that Leandra experienced but part of the fun of these inventive lip balms is that you never know how it looks until you try it! Don’t be alarmed by the cheap looking packaging, surprisingly I found it more moisturizing than the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain (say that 5 times fast) that has become a staple in my makeup bag.
I also just realized that I already broke one of my 25 goals for year 25: Number 4 -not do any impulse buying. In my defense, you try looking at a bright green lipstick that turns pink on your lips and walk away with your wallet intact…
Love this post!! I had so much fun with the green lipstick 🙂
