A Provocative Post…

Don’t get too excited, I’ve hardly decided to jump on the “50 Shades of Grey” train, but today’s post will in fact have everyone wishing they could get their hands on a “chubby.”  Yes, you read correctly, your favorite blogger is talkin’ chubbies.  Get your minds out of the gutter gals, I’m referring to Clinique’s Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Contour Balm.

This is not a new product out on the market, but it is fairly new to me.  I call it my weekend warrior.  This stuff is great for when you need to go out but don’t want the hassle of getting all dolled up.  It’s quick and gives your lips that pop of color you get after you’ve just had a popsicle.  The color lasts, it’s moisturizing and it’s so easy to use.  It looks like a fat lip pencil, but it never needs sharpening (it twists at the bottom to give you more product).  It’s balm like in texture so no messy application and you can tuck it away in your pocket without having to drag around your entire makeup bag.  So in essence someone could actually say, “is that a Chubby in your pocket or..?”  I digress, but someone had to say it.

In all seriousness, this stick is the way to go if you’re not a big lipstick wearer.  It’s great for the work week (not too dramatic or overdone) and really perfect for the weekends when no one wants to fuss.  My favorite thing about the Chubby is that because of it’s balm-like quality, gone are the days of the dreaded lipstick on the teeth…I mean nobody likes that! Ick!

Everything about this product makes me happy, it’s texture, it’s effortless application and most especially, its name.  You will also love that it is really easy to get your hands on, as Clinique products are sold just about everywhere you go. (Sephora.com, Clinique.com, virtually any department store).  Plus, unlike some of my past suggestions at $16 – $19 this is really affordable.

I hope you enjoy the Chubby as much as I do.

Happy Shopping…xo Elisa

Simply the BESS…

Noooooo…my recent Labour Day weekend trip to NYC did not render me illiterate (destitute possibly, but illiterate, never).  Today’s product recommendation is all about Bess, Edward Bess…or rather his totally, amazing lip liner.

Many chose not to wear lip liner at all, some wear it wrong (dear Lord, please allow me to never see another pair of lips outlined-EVER)!  What separates Edward Bess’ Lip Liner from all the dozens and dozens of other companies out there, is his choice of color selection.  Simply put, he offers no color selection.  (Think of it as liner for dummies).  He offers one option, NATURAL, and I kid you not, it works!  I’ve spent so many years trying to find that perfect liner to match my lipstick, or one whose pigment works with my lip tone.  Edward Bess Lip Liner in Natural works perfectly with every color lipstick I’ve tried, from the palest of pales to the most flattering fuschias, this liner rocked them all.

I promise you this will be the last liner you ever buy, not only does it work with just about every color, you get TWO of them in the pack…($29 at sephora.ca and neimanmarcus.com).  I know you’re going to love this one….

*A little bonus tip:  when applying lipstick, apply liner after your lipstick, it’ll help blend the color, define your lip shape and stop any bleeding/running of color.  I hope you all fall in love with your perfect pouts after this one!  Enjoy…xo Elisa
