Balm Me! First Kiss... NYE 2012

Before you pucker up this New Year's Eve, make sure pout is in good condition. Who wouldn't want supple lips like Angelina Jolie? Start by taking care of one of the most fragile parts of your face by exfoliating weekly with dampened washcloth sweeping back and forth lightly over your lips, or use 1 teaspoon raw sugar mixed with olive oil, massage, and wipe off. Keep your pucker conditioned and smooth with daily use of lip balm. Choose a balm that's not too waxy or heavy on your skin. It's a matter of "caveat emptor" and/ or trial error from our consumption. My picks and rotation of lip balms are: Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm (smooth not sticky), EOS (great packaging & 95% organic), Smith's Rosebud Salve (multipurpose: balm, cuticle conditioner, eyebrow tamer, etc...) and La Mer Lip Balm (luxury brand with lusciousness). Also the original staples of balms Medex, Carmex, and Vaseline are comforts during cold months and great overnight soothers.

For the finishing touch, jazz up your dynamic duo with your favorite lip color or gloss. 
My current rotation consists of ... L' Oreal Lip Color #800 Fairest Nude for medium/ dark complexion , Mac Viva Glam Lady Gaga 2 is a long lasting nude tone leaves a subtle sparkle even when the color is gone! Another staple is Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey which also doubles for use as blush. 
Other favorite lipsticks I use are by Lancome, Dior, Bobbie Brown, Revlon and Nars. Whatever you choose, make sure it makes your lips the most kissable!

Have fun and have a fantastic 1st!

Thanks to all my visitors from all parts of the world! XXOO
