Skincare Review: Fresh Sugar Lip Polish, Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy, and Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15

Building my lip care routine with these beauties from Fresh Beauty. To be honest, since I have not been using liquid lipsticks that much, my lips have been looking and feeling okay so, I sort of neglected them.

However, getting these Sugar Lip Ritual products made me pay attention to my lips again. After cleansing my face, I exfoliate with the Sugar Lip Polish. I do this twice a week. It feels gentle on the lips, not that abrasive, just enough to provide exfoliation.

At night, before sleeping, I apply the Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy. It’s not as thick as most treatments, it feels like a normal balm so it doesn’t feel bothersome. It’s on my bedside table so I wouldn’t forget.

In the morning and all throughout the day, I apply to use the Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15. It has a berry tint that can be used alone, especially on days when I’m not wearing any makeup.

After a couple of weeks of use, my lips felt softer and smoother. It made me realize how much attention I should give my lips, not just my skin.

Skincare and Makeup Review: Frank Body Lip Products

Just look at these gorgeous-looking lip products from Frank Body.

Their Lip Scrub ($14.95) smells exactly like the body scrub and it’s an easy way to exfoliate my lips. It contains coffee, sugar, cold-pressed macadamia oil, and beeswax so it smells and tastes so sweet before leaving it feeling soft and moisturized.

At night, I apply the Lip Balm ($11.95), which contains coffee arabica seed oil, vitamin e, coconut, and grapeseed oils, and lanolin to soothe, hydrate, and nourish the lips.

It’s similar to most lip balms but I like the packaging, specifically. It’s easy to carry around, especially when my lips are extremely dry. It dispenses products easily the texture and weight of the balm feel light.

For some color, the Taupe-Less And Cherry Bomb Lip & Cheek Tints ($11.95 each) uses lanolin, coconut oil, coffee seed oil, and honeycomb to moisturize and hydrate the lips while adding some tint. Taupe-Less has a nude tint while Cherry Bomb offers a wine-colored tint that looks fun. Both offer a slight sheen but it applies thinner than the lip balm, making it feel lightweight.

The Shimmer Lip Gloss can be used alone or as a topper to your matte lip color if you’re feeling celebratory. It has glow dust, coffee seed oil, grape seed oil, citrus extract, and lanolin to moisturize with an additional oomph to your look.

Makeup Review: Trestique Highlight Stick in Maldives Luminescent, Sugar Polish + Plumping Lip Balm in Barbados Berry, and Lip Glaze Crayon in Paris Pink

This trip to Bali has had me a bi dependent on the new goodies Trestique sent over a few weeks ago.

My overall glow was amplified by the Highlight Stick ($28) in Maldives Luminescent. This a creamy formula, which contains coconut oil, easily glides on the skin. It has a sheen that can be buildable depending on the wattage you want to shine. I’ve put this on the top of my cheeks, nose, and lips for a subtle glow. It like applying this highlighter with my fingers as its soft texture is easy to control.

I’ve really been enjoying lip balms lately so I always reach for the Sugar Polish + Plumping Lip Balm ($25). The Sugar Polish lip scrub softens the lips but what‘s getting a lot of use is the Plumping Balm, which used marine collagen microspheres and organic shea butter to plump and moisturize the lips. The lip balm equally moisturizes and colors the lips so this is really a one and done product for me. I put this on and get subtle plumpness, adequate moisture, and intense color. I have the Barbados Berry shade and this looks like a cherry-colored tint that has a slight sheen and it just brightens up my face. The soft formula is a joy to apply and the big tube actually helps prevent applying over the lip lines.

Lastly, the Lip Glaze Crayon ($25) has a primer on one side and a stained gloss, which contains cocoa butter, coconut oil, and peach oil, on the other to smooth, hydrate, and provide a shine on the lips. The primer, I don’t really use but it’s good to support my extremely matte lip colors. For the lipgloss, I have the shade Paris Pink, which actually applies a bit transparent on me so I like using it on top of my lip color, usually on top of the Plumping Balm. It has a bit of slip to it and Lip Glaze is such an appropriate name because it does look like I just ate a glazed doughnut whenever I apply this. Since I’ve been walking around a beach town the past few days, I like using this whenever I want to add to the glowy look I’ve been rocking.
