Purse Glosses. These are the lip products that will go with any look and you can apply easily without a mirror. I am guilty of keeping up to 10 lip products in my purse at a time so I can easily change my look at the drop of a hat, but the ones I tend to reach for most are the low maintenance, neutral, hydrating options. I’ve selected 3 of my tried and true favorites that look great even if your lips are dry or the rest of your makeup has gone wonky.
I had been hearing about the new Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara so I had to pick it up (Make sure you print off the $3 off manufacturers coupon you can find online so its only $5!).
Instead of going to Ulta to earn rewards points like I typically do for my drug store makeup splurges, I chose CVS because they carry Milani and I had to have another one of their Baked Blushes. Luminoso is amazing so I opted to try Berry Amore because Amelia Liana insisted it was a good dupe for Mac’s Warm Soul Mineralize Blush. I’ll report back on that.
As if I didn’t have enough Revlon Lip Butters. I had to try this color. I bought Crème Brulee, a very nude shade. It looked intimidating-ly brown in the tube, but I love the look it gives the lips.

Unexpectedly, Fig Jam has become a fall lipstick staple for me.
I typically love the red and berry hues that are ever popular in autumn, but for the office or school bright statement lips can be a little too much. Arguably red is classic and always appropriate, but if you’re scared to make such a bold statement in a conservative environment, Fig Jam may be your answer.
We all know my love for the Revlon Lip Butters and once again the formula and wearability of Fig Jam has me hooked. The lip butters deliver a sheer, but not too sheer, wash of color to the lips while keeping them hydrated. This is definitely one of the darker shades in the range, but you can still apply it confidently without a mirror and blend it in with your finger to sheer it out further if you prefer.
As an alternative to red and berry, Fig Jam is a brown shade with red undertones that make it very wearable. While it looks to be a super dark brown in the tube, it is in fact more of a red. Brown-y lipsticks are very trendy right now and while a full 90s brown lip may be a little much and definitely doesn’t flatter everyone, this Lip Butter can help you embrace the trend. It is neutral and in vogue for fall making it an effortless addition to your makeup bag.
