4 Effortless Tips for Perfect Spring Lips!
- Exfoliate! Go for an easy DIY scrub: mix 2 tsps. of brown sugar, 1/2 tsp. honey, 1 tsp jojoba oil in a small mixing bowl. Apply lightly to lips and move gently in a circular motion on both top and bottom lips and then rinse off or use a warm washcloth to gently wipe away.
- Skip on the matte finishes and over-drying lipsticks...at least for now! Why? As your lips will be recovering from the harshness of the winter environment, you will want to give them time to do this. They may peel or be experiencing more dryness than usual. Avoid lipsticks with thick formulas, a high wax content, or matte finishes as these tend to only encourage dryness and they show it more easily as well :o
- Don't forgot to protect your lips from sun damage and prevent the signs of aging as well by applying an SPF lip product- a min. SPF of 15+ Apply throughout the day, especially if you are continuing sun exposure.
- Snatch up a fab new spring lip color! Try something fun & light for spring. What's in for Spring '17? Ombre Orange-Red lips, 2-tone shades [think bright pink & reddish-orange], chocolate shades featuring glitter [think deep & sparkly > start w/a blood wine shade, follow with a matte cherry color, and then end with a full-on chocolate glitter shade], and nudes.

Chrome Glaze High-Shine Lip Gloss
This fab lip gloss has become a recent fav! I'm quite a fan of the Pur brand and I also happen to love lip products as well- there's a vast collection building on my hands ;) However, I'm sure that many of you might have experienced this as well... I also have quite a few lip glosses, sticks, and other lip products that just didn't end up turning out. Some of these weren't the color or shade I was looking for or they started drying out my lips.
Luckily, this awesome lip gloss from Pur doesn't have any of those annoying properties and isn't too thickly formulated, leaves your lips looking shiny, glossy, & fabulous- it's also perfect for layering with other great shades in the collection or your fav lip stick shade :) The shade featured above, DIY is a great nude for spring that's perfect for all skin types & shades too. Lightweight, paraben-free & 100% cruelty-free, highly pigmented, featuring gel technology- you will love Pur's latest lip gloss!
