This product is non-greasy. You can use this clear lip gloss for multiple purposes like it can be used on eyelids for a little pop to your eyes, apply on your cheekbones as a highlighter and of course on your lips. You can apply this on your bare lips or on top of your lipstick. To add on, it is a vegan product.

I have tried this gloss on my bare lips as well as on top of my lipstick. I think it looks beautiful both ways. Moreover, it looks awesome on eyelids. I think this gloss does not last long on lips, however, you can reapply the product as and when needed. For me this is an everyday go-to product.

Pros:

– Non-sticky
– Super-high shine
– Can be used on lips, eyelids, and cheekbones

Cons:

– Does not last long on lips
– Expensive

I think everyone will agree that a gloss on your lips just elevates your look. Therefore, I will give this product 5 stars (*****) even though it is a bit expensive but I just love this high shine gloss. I will recommend you guys to try this product and if you have already tried I would love to hear about your experience with this gloss.

I have tried Tulip (Hot pink), Dream (sheer pink), Petal (Pink blossom), Rose (Sheer rose). 
I must say all of them are so hydrating and the moisture stays for long. My lips feel softer and fuller. My favorite amongst all of these is Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 Rose. I feel Rose tint looks so natural and beautiful.

I think if used regularly these products will not last more than two months.

– Grapeseed oil (rich in antioxidants)
– Meadowfoam and Black currant seed oils help moisturize

FIRST AID BEAUTY Ultra Repair Lip Therapy

Hello Beautiful People,

Lips are one of the most attractive parts of the human body. It is necessary to take care of them. Nobody likes their lips to look or feel dry. There are a lot of different kinds of products out there claiming to keep your lips hydrating. Do you think all of them do their job? I found one product that certainly is doing a perfect job of nourishing and repairing my lips.

FAB Ultra Repair Lip Therapy is one of the best product for lips. It is a petroleum-free lip balm. As you all know petroleum is not good for lips. Petroleum jelly creates the illusion that your skin is hydrated and moisturized, however, it just suffocates your pores because it is a water repellent and not water soluble.

Product: FAB Ultra Repair Lip Therapy
Price: $12
Skin Type: Normal, Oily, Dry, Sensitive, Combination
Size: 0.5 oz/ 14.8 ml

Based on my experience, I just love this lip product because of many facts, one of which is being petroleum-free. Another beautiful thing about this lip balm is that I do not need to re-apply all day. When I feel a lot of dryness I apply it for say 3-5 days regularly and then once my lips feel repaired and hydrated I do not need to apply the lip balm for a while. However, I try to regularly apply this lip balm before I go to bed, as a result, I can feel the softness and hydration in the morning.

Petroleum Free Lip Balm

Pros:

– Petroleum-free
– Hydrating
– Worth the price
– For all skin type
– Minty fresh fragrance
– No chapped lips
– Vegan

Cons:

– No SPF


According to me, this is a 5-star (*****) product. Let me know your thoughts about the lip balm. You guys have a wonderful day. 🙂

Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base

Hello Beautiful People,

I hope you all are doing great. I am back with another BOBBI BROWN product review. Yes, I love Bobbi Brown products. I feel BB products are worth the money as they do the job perfectly. This blog is about Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base which is perfect base cream for your skin and best when used as a makeup base.

Hydration is the key for perfect makeup. This cream has a perfect balance of hydration with no greasy feeling. This is what you need as your makeup base so that your makeup should not look flaky or cakey. I am sure nobody wants to have a cakey face. This cream gets absorbed by the skin as soon as you apply it on your face.

Product: Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base
Price: $60
Skin Type: Normal, Oily, Combination
Size: 1.7 oz/ 50 ml

I have been using this cream as my makeup base for a while now. For a single application, a tiny amount of it is enough. I think this gives my face the required hydration which I need for my makeup. This makes the makeup look flawless. Moreover, it gets absorbed into my skin as soon as I apply it which in turn makes my makeup look non-greasy and my face non-oily.

One of the best makeup base cream

Pros:

– Makeup looks flawless onto this cream
– Non-greasy
– Hydrating
– Vegan
– Just a tiny amount is enough
– Smells very good
– Contains Vitamins B, C, and E
– Paraben-free; phthalate-free; sulfate-free; gluten-free

Cons:

– A bit expensive, but you are paying price for a quality that is a Bobbi Brown product
– Not for very dry skin type

It comes in two different sizes:
1. Standard Size (1.7 oz/ 50 ml)
2. Mini Size (0.50 oz/ 15 ml)

I would definitely give a 4-star(****) to this base cream for its non-greasy and flawless finish. You can apply this as a makeup base or just as a normal face cream especially for a hot day when you are looking for something hydrating but non-oily and never greasy. Let me know what do you think about this product.
