I have a thing for red lips right now. There's just something about red that is resonating with me at this moment in time. Not that I'm a red lip hater any other time, I am just not as prone to choose them on a daily basis. But right now? Yessss, give me all of the reds.
I grabbed up this beauty during the Canadian Beauty Bloggers dinner I went to in June (my last hoorah before my broken knee fiasco- womp womp). After every dinner is a swap and I couldn't pass this up when I saw it on the table. I've seen so many fellow bloggers raving about the Lipsies and having not yet tried one, I snatched it up. So thank you to whoever brought this to the swap!
Annabelle Lipsies come in 12 different scents. They do not have to be sharpened, just spin the base for more product. I appreciate the round shape. Makes it relatively easy to apply! I found this to sink a little into my lip lines, but it's not as noticeable in real life. The cherry scent reminds me of a cherry Jolly Rancher. I find the color lasts about 1-2 hours and it still felt moisturizing for an hour longer after that. I think that's pretty acceptable for a lip balm.
If interested in these or other Annabelle products, you can find them in most Canadian drugstores. They also ship to Canadian and US addresses. Right now, they even let you customize your own lip gloss. That sounds fun!
