In times where minimalism rules and we (rightly!) ask ourselves if our current culture of consumerism is really the way we want to continue on, it can be tough to write a beauty blog. It is a constant battle between being mindful with my purchases (read about my Low Buy 2019, for example) and allowing myself little luxuries that I don’t need need, but enjoy nonetheless. Like the Emile Cordon Miracle Lip Balm I wanted to review today.
In my defense, they are more than a lip balm. They are a lip and cheek tint, which makes them a versatile makeup item, and maybe a little bit less of a luxury? No, I get it, I am not convinced either.
Now it is no secret that I love a good lipstick. If you have seen my collection (I am currently trying to work my way through it on Instagram @LindaLibraLoca), you’ll know that I have just about every color you could think of.
Reds will always be my favorites, but you’ll find a fair share of nudes and MLBB shades in my drawers as well that I reach for on work days.
In the summer though, when even I get a little bit tanned, I tend to go for more vibrant shades on my lips.
Lipstick paired with a pair of sunglasses to hide your tired
eyes makes you look pulled together even after two sleepless nights due to a teething baby. Obviously this works all through the year, but as I am no member of the Kardashian family, so I tend to shy away from sunglasses in the winter gloom.
