What gets me most excited about blogging now is the same thing that got me excited about it five years ago. Discovering cool stuff that I am completely obsessed with, and having a forum to share it in. The products that I would (and do) gush to all of my girlfriends about, and then get all of my coworkers obsessing over, too. Running a blog is different now – but the core mission, the love of a good “Stripe Find” is still the same.
Today’s post is a massive obsession of mine. A month or two ago I finally tried some things from Beautycounter, and I really liked everything I tried. But I was absolutely infatuated with their lip sheers. They deliver the perfect wash of sheer color, are so creamy + hydrating, but give you that “Oh makeup? What makeup? I’m just naturally, like, really pretty” sort of look. Undone and gorgeous. Rose became my instant everyday favorite, but I can see coral taking its place once I’ve got a tan. Scarlet is perfect when you want red lips (but not done red lips), and Plum is a great berry… as if you’d just bitten your lips. I actually lost the Rose one (and nearly cried), but the brand kindly sent me a new one.
It doesn’t hurt that the products are completely safe (read more about Beautycounter’s ingredients here… it’s really interesting!) and that the lip sheers come in an extra luxe, heavyweight beautiful gold (striped!) tube. I’ll always love my opaque lipsticks… but for everyday wear, these are where it’s at. Completely, utterly obsessed.
