Product Review: The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ

3 Jun


With summer coming up, I desperately wanted to get my pout sun-kissed ready. After a recent trip to Henri Bendel, I found The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ, which is the ultimate lip scrub (in my eyes at least). It comes in cute packaging (a box wrapped with a bow) and several different scents/colors. After two seconds of debating, I went with the Sparkling Pink Grapefruit (surprise, surprise). I knew anything pink would smell great!


After I unwrapped the beautiful packaging it was time for the true test. The lip scrub really did smell like grapefruit, and I could not stop sniffing it. If there was ever a scent I could smell for the rest of my life, I think this might be it. Following the simple directions, I dipped my finger into the scrub and traced circles onto my lips. It felt like I was truly cleansing my dry winter-y lips, as it felt like I was rubbing sea salt on it. I loved the texture of the scrub. After a minute of rubbing the product against my lips, they instantly felt softer and moisturized. I’m an instant gratification person, and I love products that work immediately! Totally worth the splurge. I think I may be addicted.


The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ can be found at Henri Bendel, Amazon, and many other stores for an original price of $24.



Trend Alert: Red Lips

19 Oct

The trend of red lips can’t seem to fade away, especially not in the face of the fall season.  Nothing stands out more than a subtle red-hot pucker (done correctly, of course).  Read on for tips on how to achieve siren lips in no time!

Before you get started, choose a lip liner that matches your lip tone.  Don’t apply too much liner to your Cupid’s bow (the center of your top lip) or you could wind up looking overdone.

Now for the fun part: choose your perfect color!  Don’t be afraid to try out different hues before you settle for a favorite.  There may be one hue that perfectly matches you, or several; you’ll never know until you shop around.  If you have thin lips, steer clear of darker red shades; this can make your pout appear even smaller.  To fake fuller-looking lips, don’t be afraid to trace your liner a bit outside your natural border to fake it.  If you already have full lips, try classic red shades that will compliment lips nicely without going overboard.  Chanel’s Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Color is my absolute favorite and comes in a variety of hot shades, and will give you a gorgeous finish.

Have fun experimenting!
