Lavanila Healthy Lip Butter and Shine

Lavanila Healthy Lip ButterLavanila Laboratories specializes in various natural bath and body products, and their Lavanila Healthy Lip Butter iconis a huge new favorite of mine. This tube lip conditioner is all natural and contains a number of my favorite moisturizing ingredients. It applies just like a tube gloss and gives a bit of shine as well. Consider it a thicker (but not sticky) buttery gloss! It lasts for quite a while too and has SPF 15.  Made with vanilla, it also has a nice scent and light taste. Here is what the company literature has to say about it:

The Healthy Lip Butter is packed full of powerful antioxidants, essential oils, and nourishing vitamins that help relieve and hydrate dry lips.  Protect your lips from UV-damage with 100% Natural SPF 15 while four exotic butters moisturize and soften. Lavanila Healthy Lip Butters are 100% Natural and are formulated without petrochemicals, phthalates, synthetic dyes, sulfates, or chemical sunscreens.  Available in Pure Vanilla, the fresh vanilla bean instantly soothes, making Lavanila’s Healthy Lip Butter the perfect winter indulgence!

LaVanila also makes a lovely Lip Shine , which is an all natural gloss. I gave the Vanilla Lavender flavor a try and found it to be light, glossy, and not at all sticky. It too has a nice light scent and taste–just enough to be pleasant without being overwhelming.

If you like tube products definitely try out Lavanila!

M.A.C Cosmetics Hello Kitty Lip Conditioners

When MAC Cosmetics released their Hello Kitty Collection, I immediately bought both of the limited edition lip conditioner shades. My initial thinking was that these would be like the tendertones conditioners (read previous review). I turned out to be wrong, but I still love these two pot conditioners!


The conditioner in the Hello Kitty pots seems a bit thicker than the MAC tendertones balms. They also have more pigment than many of the tendertones did. Each shade imparts a nice sheer color and is indeed moisturizing. There isn’t much to them in terms of any flavor, and I could notice a bit of the taste similar to the limited edition MAC tube lip conditioners that I did not care for. However, this was greatly lessened over the taste of the tube conditioners, so I don’t really mind it.

What I love is the look of the two shades, plus the container is so darn cute! Below are swatches of the two shade. Left is Popster and right is Pink Fish:


I am quite glad now that I bought both of them!


Neutrogena MoistureShine Ornament

I got an email about this cute ornament:

Neutrogena lip ornament holiday
It is a Neutrogena MoistureShine Lip Soother in a clear start shaped case. I imagine you can find this in the big box stores and drug stores. It is also a darn good tube gloss, with SPF, which is a nice bonus (read previous review)
