* Favorite lip balm?

* Favorite lip scrub?
I don’t have one yet, I alternate between a toothbrush, using a little of my body sugar scrub, and one I bought on etsy that’s a sugar and oil scrub in a twist up tube.

* Favorite my-lips-but-better lip color?
I don’t really have one…everytime I have one that makes me think like that, I go into different lighting and change my mind. I have such pigmented lips, though, so if I want THAT color in my look, I’ll top it with a sheerer lipstick or a gloss.

Favorite lip scrub? – I just make my own or use my toothbrush.

fave my lips but better – Cover Girl Lip Perfection Romance

just found Buddha Balm & love it! have been on a search for my holy grail of balms as my lips crack & peel no matter what season. Jack Black didn’t work for me at all. CG lip perfection is the only lip color that doesn’t dry out my lips. two Revlon lip butters I have dry them badly.

Favorite lip balm? Mac Tendertones or Nivea original
Favorite lip scrub? Lush – Bubble gum
Favorite my-lips-but-better lip color? Angel 😉

Favorite lip balm?: I have a huge collection of lip balms from The Body Shop, and I don’t really have a favorite among them because I keep losing them 😀

Favorite lip scrub?: I haven’t actually gone out and bought a lip scrub.. I just find it a bit unnecessary when you can scrub your lips with sugar and a toothbrush.

Favorite my-lips-but-better color?: Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey! I really only bought it because I found out it was what Liv Tyler was wearing when she played Arwen in the Lord of the Rings movies, but I am obsessed with the shade. Recently, when Clinique released Almost Lipsticks in other shades, I tried some of them, but they’re just too light, you can’t really tell a difference. Black Honey has a bit more of a visible effect, while still being subtle.

* Favorite lip balm?

Lip Balm – Nuxe Reve de Miel (Honey Lip Balm)
