Girl Gloss Best Lip Products of 2008

Best of 2008Below are my favorite lip items that I wrote about in 2008. They are in no particular order. I love them all pretty much equally! All links are to my original reviews.

1. Cargo Blue_ray Lip Gloss Palette: This is my absolute favorite lip gloss palette. Great shades, high gloss, and a minty scent!

2. Laura Geller Lipstick: I loved the trio I tried. This is a new favorite lipstick for me.

3. Kenzoki Sweet and Smooth Lip Duo: I adore this combo lip scrub and conditioner from Kenzoki.

4. Yes to Carrots Lip Butters: Truly wonderful and affordable lip balms.

5. Mark Hookups Lip Gloss and Stick: I love pairing a Mark Cosmetics thick lip pencil with their Glow Baby Glow Gloss.

6. MAC Cosmetics Lustre Twins: MAC managed to come out this year with one of the few long wearing products that I like. Lustre Twins work and are more comfortable to wear than many other long wearing products, although they still can get that dry, cakey thing going if you don’t reapply the gloss.

7. Senna Cosmetics Lip Sync Duo: This lipstick and gloss duo is high quality and comes in good combinations.

8. Sonia Kashuk Velvety Matte Lip Crayon: This is an affordable lip crayon similar to the higher end Nars crayon that is also on this list.

9. MAC Cosmetics Tendertones: Tendertones are generally limited edition, but MAC has released them twice now, so I hope there will be more next year. They are the best flavored pot balms out there. Although L’Oreal makes a decent substitute.

10. Murad Energizing Pomegranate Lip Protector: This tube gloss is conditioning and feels terrific. It is my all time favorite tube conditioning gloss.

11. Nars Dolce Vita Lip Pencil: This lip crayon is creamy smooth and comes in a beautiful, universally flattering shade.

12. MAC Cosmetics Dazzle Glass: Shimmery, high shine gloss that lives up to the name.

13. Soap and Glory Sexy MotherPucker: This was my favorite lip plumper of the year.

14. Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Lipstick: This new drugstore line is great overall, so it is no surprise that I adore the lipstick. It is one of the best value lip color options out there.

15. Badger Classic Balms: I love the badger company. Their classic balms are some of the best natural balms on the market.

16. Caudalie Lip Conditioner: This conditioner has a silky feel but it provides heavy moisture.

17. Sonia Kashuk Lip Duo: This is a great lipstick and gloss combo that comes at a very affordable price.

Tagged Your it Daneen at Spoiled Pretty tagged me, asking six questions about myself, with these rules:

* Post rules at the beginning of the post.
* Answer all the questions.
* Tag 6 people, and go to their blog and leave a comment to inform them that they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
* Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

So, here they are:

What were you doing ten years ago? Ten years ago, I was living in Nebraska and was about to begin my second year as a Judicial Law Clerk at the Nebraska Supreme Court. Shortly after, I became the first judicial attorney for the court, acting as a career clerk for Justice Connolly. I stayed there for around ten years total. I was an internet geek even back then, but blogging was not really on the radar then.

What are five things on your to-do list today? Of course all of these will be preceded with, and followed by, applications of lip gloss!

  1. Finish up some blog posts
  2. Finish up an opinion at my job
  3. Research Seattle Sutton menus
  4. Try out a make your own mineral makeup kit that I have sitting here
  5. Go buy an iced tea brewer

Snacks you enjoy? Mmmm snacks! I like salty carbs, so I eat a lot of nuts and pretzels. I am a sucker for Cheetos, but I don’t let myself have those often. The new baked Cheetos are not too bad though!

Places you’ve lived? I spent most of my life in Lincoln, Nebraska. A couple of years ago I moved to the Chicago area. I live in Shorewood and work in Elgin.

What are 5 things you would do if you were a billionaire? Can I just say buy more lipgloss and leave it at that? I suppose not, so here they are:

  1. Quit my day job and write a novel
  2. Build a fabulous house in a fabulous location
  3. Give a bunch of money to charity
  4. Throw a really big party
  5. Buy my husband a sports car that is not a Corvette (inside joke there)

People you want to know more about? I want to know more about my readers! Leave some comments and tell me about yourselves! I also want to know more about the people who I tag below:

I tag: Kyle at Face Candy, the ladies at Beauty PopStar, Sophia at Beauty Gizmo, Pip at Our Little Acre, Kim at All That And A…, and Makeup Loves Me.
