I don't usually get a lot of lip products because it takes me a long time to finish, but for work, I decided to get a couple new ones to use. The Benefit Ultra Plush gloss is something I got from a seminar, it can be found at Shoppers Drug Mart for about $18CAD.
I like my natural lip colors, so it's no surprise that I would purchase something subtle.
The products are Benefit Coralista lipgloss, Lancome L'absolu Nu 201 and L'oreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral.
The Benefit Coralista Ultra Plush lipgloss came out a couple weeks ago at Shoppers Drug Mart. I think there's about 6 shades? All designed to match their boxed blushes. Coralista smells like very sweet lychee and has a very slick watery feel. It's not sticky at all which means it's not long lasting. At least my hair doesn't stick to my lips anymore.

You can probably guess from the name that L'absolu Nu is a sheer lipstick. They were designed to enhance your natural lip color and this came the closest to my lips. This lipstick has a slight perfume scent to it and goes on quite sheer with a hint of color and shine. This doesn't last long at all, especially if I talk a lot. I normally use this at work when I don't feel like having too much color on my lips.

As for the L'oreal Colour Riche Balm, I was convinced by Raeview's video from YT to get it in Caring Coral. I honestly didn't need anymore lipbalms so it's a bit of a spontaneous purchase. I kept this in my makeup pouch for the times I needed some lip color but forgot my other lipsticks at home. Not too fond of this product though because my lips started peeling and didn't feel moisturized at all. However, I do like how this applies very smoothly.
I think I have too many lip products, but I bet there's plenty of you out there that have more than me. How does one finish them all?? 
I know I should be throwing most of these out due to the length of time I've had them, but I just can't get myself to throw them's like they're my babies!

Oh no the L'oreal one peels? :( I was quite excited for them to be launched in the UK but doubt i'll get them if they make your lips peel. The colour looks quite nude, or maybe i'm just really colour-blind haha! You don't have that many lip products... but then again this is coming from someone who has been banned from buying any lip products by her boyfriend... Sigh! The Paul and Joe packagings are so pretty.

detergent once they are completed. One of the factors our clothes fades or wears prematurely, is simply because the laundry soap can create up and breakdown the fiber. Now, typical impression should notify us that if we can smell the detergent, launch scan tool
it's touching our pores and skin, and in the end becoming absorbed. If we do not bathe our youngsters in laundry soap, then why really should we permit them to soak in it daily?Even though I am not a whole naturalist, I do think that we have to pay attention to what we expose our youngsters to, since we really haven't any info or facts telling us that steady direct contact is risk-free, or telling us what the dangers are.If this info can be a problem to suit your needs, there is certainly usually a solution for poisonous homes.
