Lip Gloss: A fashionista’s Must Have

Lip gloss… a staple in my handbag, car, locker at work, travel bag, husband’s pocket… you know what I am talking about.  Whether it’s a lip balm to moisturize or a shiny lip gloss saying “kiss me”, I have to be wearing it!  And, let’s be real, you can find lip gloss about anywhere anymore; you can go cheap or more pricey, and I definitely have found both that I love.  For day time or jazzing it up a bit for a night on the town, make sure you are stocked up!  And, what a great gift idea, most people love getting new “make-up” and, since I don’t use lip stick, this is a must for me!  I always expect it in my stocking at Christmas. 🙂

First, let’s talk EOS. Although it’s in an awkwardly-shaped container, a sphere, it moisturizes like no other and goes on very smooth.  There are many different flavors to choose from. I personally like the mint, but I honestly would use any of them.  This is one I like to keep on my kitchen window sill above the sink…yes, that’s kind of weird, but I am in the kitchen ALOT, so it’s easily accessible and looks pretty sitting there too!  Look for the variety pack, which contains four different flavors for you to try!!

Shiny!!  That is what Victoria’s Secret Shiny Kiss lip gloss is known for! There are a million different flavors and colors, I tend to go with shiny natural or light pink, but this product is worth the $7.50.  Plus, it fits perfectly in your small night out clutch or in the pocket of your everyday purse!

Sexy!! Nars…this is my splurge!  You can find it at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Sephora…I always go with the color Turkish Delight.  Yes, Kim K. is who probably got me addicted to it, but I will be honest, I love it!  Try it out for yourself!  It’s ahhh-mazing!

Daily Fix!!  This lip butter is my lip saving grace!  My husband actually bought it for me at a local boutique, and I have been hooked ever since! In fact, I have to have him get it for me when I am running low…and usually 2-3 tubes at once! I keep this one in my purse and at work.  Made with Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Pomegranate seed oil, it’s very soothing to the lips and the flavors are wonderful!  You can find this product at

Hello! I was born and raised in a small Kansas town but have always loved the city and all that it has to offer! I love to travel, I love fashion, and I love to eat…and write about it! My small town life growing up has definitely shaped who I am today and as I grow older, I am starting to appreciate that more and more. When I am not writing or at my day job, I am most likely baking, running, spending time at the local farmers market, or hitting up a good happy hour! I am currently in Nursing school and will graduate in 2017, I love helping people!! I am obsessed with taking pictures that aren’t conventional and sharing them with the world. My family and friends mean the world to me and I cherish each second I spend with them. I currently have my own blog titled “Dirt Roads ~ High Heels”
