If you’re like me who loves lipstick and likes to experiment with it, then you’ll surely enjoy lipstick twists like Yves Saint Laurent’s Lip Twins. Each tube of the Lip Twins offers two textures: the actual satiny lipstick and a shiny gloss. You can choose from 12 color combinations and mix colors or textures to get the shade and look you want.
Lip Twins is rich in color, glides easily, and contains anti-oxidants that both moisturize and nourish the lips. The formula also contains SPF 8 for sun protection. But what I really love about this product is that it comes in a gorgeous jewel-like tube, making it look almost like a perfume. Definitely a winning product from YSL.

L’Oreal Paris has come up with a new lip product that is said to have a breakthrough formula and a revolutionary three-in-one packaging. By three-in-one that means there is a vibrant lip color, moisturizing balm, and built-in mirror in one package. It’s no other than L’Oreal’s Infallible Never Fail Lipcolour Compact.
The lip color alone would have been fabulous as it offers 16 hours of gorgeous color that won’t dry out. But the compact also features a moisturizing balm with Vitamin E and Marine Collagen that makes sure your lips are nourished all those 16 hours. Add the patented precision applicator and stylish mirror and you’ve got one great package!
You can choose among not 3 nor 10 but 24 beautiful shades of glorious lip color. What are you waiting for?
Lip gloss is very popular right now. You can find them in almost any store you go in. Glosses can be worn alone or paired with other products. You can never have enough lip gloss. Check out these ways to use your lip gloss.
- Over lipstick – add a little gloss to your lipstick by applying your lip gloss over your lipstick. It can make your lips feel more moisturized and give them a great shine.
- Application – when putting on lip gloss, a little goes a long way. A few dabs to the middle of the lips can then be smoothed over using your lips or finger. Don’t out on too much because you will just be wasting it.
- Add some concealer to lips before gloss to give lips an added flawless smooth look.
- Make lips light pink and soft line the lips with a pink lip pencil and use pink colored gloss.
- Light and Medium skin toned – use pale and natural shades for lining lips with a clear lip gloss
- Darker skin toned – use brown shades with lighter lip glosses
Glosses are a great item to keep on hand at all times. There are so many different types and features to the glosses out now, you should experiment with various colors and textures to find the glosses that work best for you.

Since it’s still summer in many parts of the world, here are some more tips you can use to prettify yourself for summer. After all, we can never get enough helpful makeup tips, can’t we? Hope these few pointers enhance your gorgeous features even more!
Cheeks. Due to the warmer rays of the sun, our cheeks are often more glowing during summer . Thus, it’s time to enhance that part and make it even more fabulous by bringing out those blushes and bronzers and putting them to good use. If you’re on the fair side, pink shimmers do wonders to your cheekbones by making them pop. If you’re on the tanned side, you can try a brown-toned bronzer with gold specks for extra fab points. Remember to apply your cheek stain and blusher on bare skin and not on top of powder.
Lipstick. Summer means color, thus the limit to lipstick hue is endless. This is the time to experiment with brighter and more out-there shades of lipstick or lip gloss. Don’t fret about being too loud nor go the usual safe route. It’s the season to be out there and have fun!
Facial Sheets. The humidity of summer entails sweating a lot, so make sure you’ve got handy facial sheets to blot out all the oil before retouching. Blotting occasionally with facial sheets allows your makeup to stay as clean and neat as can be.
Do share your own summer makeup tips!

Who said key chains need to be just that – key chains? Sure there are a lot of cutesy key chains in the market but ain’t it much cooler if your key chain is a key chain and makeup in one?
I just recently discovered that Sephora has a cute line of makeup key ring products called the Lip Gloss Key Ring. The key rings come in very cute shapes and contain glittered lip gloss inside, perfect whenever you feel the need to prettify your lips! You also have four sweet colors to choose from: Strawberry, Raspberry, Blackberry and Cotton Candy.
These key chain lip glosses are so cute yet so affordable, you can give one each to your closest girl friends whether there’s an occasion or not! Or you can buy one yourself. Definitely a small price to pay for such a functional yet pretty accessory.
So I just recently heard of this lip gloss that supposedly helps you lose weight. It’s called the FUZE Slenderize Guilt Free Lip Gloss and it is this super shiny lip gloss that comes in various healthy and yummy fruit flavors. How does it help you lose weight? They say it has appetite curbing ingredients found in FUZE energy drinks. These ingredients are supposed to help one lose appetite and yet packs on the energy. The motto is “Always on the lips, never on the hips”.
The stated ingredients of this unique lip gloss are: (1) Chromium, a micronutrient that improves the amount of energy we get from food; (2) L-Carnitine, an amino acid that boost energy; and (3) Super Citrimax, a component that’s supposed to help maintain a normal appetite and increases energy at the same time.
The gloss comes in three colors: Blue Raspberry (sheer purple), Dragonfruit Lime (sheer peach), and Strawberry Melon (sheer pink).
Anyone who’s tried this? I’m more than skeptical that something like a lip gloss can curb my appetite (which is generally humongous, by the way) or the appetites of other people but it must be offering something, at the very least. Or not? 😀
Well, if it tastes good, one obvious perk we can get from it is to have ravishingly delicious kissable lips that our boyfriends or partners won’t get enough of.

When I saw this headline on the news I had to read more. I am an avid lip gloss wearer and I never would have thought that lip gloss and cancer would even be used in the same sentence! I love my shiny wet look lip gloss, and it seems, that is the exact kind causing the problems. Experts say that the shiny, slickness of the lip gloss could be causing the sun’s rays to hit harder on your lips . Who would have thought!!!? Glosses can help the light penetrate the skin’s delicate tissues, this is so serious that it leads to the potentially fatal forms of skin cancer. How scary is this, it is estimated that there are about 3500 new cases of lip cancer diagnosed each year.
It is said that it’s the stuff that’s in the lip gloss that is causing the trouble. Our lips naturally have a protective layer but when we continually use gloss for hydration it squashes it down, leaving room for the UV rays to penetrate. It is also believed that the shine of the lip gloss also plays a factor since it is like “putting a magnifying glass on your lips”. So maybe we should be using lip balm with an SPF in it, instead of the cutesy glossy lip gloss?
I don’t know about you, but it will be kinda hard for me to give it up. I have lip gloss thrown everywhere in case of a lip emergency. Maybe I’ll try swapping some out for ones with SPF in it.
