Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Lip Butter in Coolada ($7.00) is new for summer, and it’s a sheer, golden shimmered balm for your lips. I love the Coolada scent; it definitely reminds me of a pina colada, except perhaps with a bit more of a tang/citrus bite–maybe more pineapple scented (just a touch). It’s moisturizing, gives lips a nice shimmer, and it’s non-sticky. I find it keeps my lips super soft for hours, and I love the way it feels on them–like butter (but not greasy/oily like Vaseline can sometimes feel). It’s a bit pricey at $7, but they often have sales where you can get three for $15 or six for $20, so that’s a better time to stock up!

Temptalia Asks You

If you had $500 to spend on makeup, what would you buy? What would be on your list?

Temptalia's Answer.

Le Metier de Beaute glosses! Some Cle de Peau lipsticks and glosses. I think that would spend the $500 pretty fast. ;)

The best in beauty products that have truly stood the test of time. Tried and true, these still rock.

Calvin Klein Delicious Light Glistening Lip Gloss ($17.00) was a surprising discovery I made during last year’s Friends & Family sale at Sephora. I impulsively purchased Maven lip gloss, and I was quite pleased with it when I received it. In fact, I liked it so much, I went to my local Sephora and picked up three more — Knockout, Taffy, and Radar (at full price, even!). Shimmery, fairly pigmented glosses with exceptional glossiness and smooth texture. It didn’t feel sticky to me, but it wasn’t slipping off my lips either. Available at Sephora.com.

Yes To Carrots C Me Smile Lip Butters ($3.69) is one of those brands I find cute, affordable, and reliable. I’ve never not loved a Yes To Carrots product. They have a whole slew of flavors from Citrus (my personal favorite!), Melon, Berry, Carrot, and Mint. Super hydrating, deliciously scented, and lightly glossy. These just melt like butter on your lips. Available at Drugstore.comicon.
