Can Lip Gloss Make a Comeback?

In middle school, you couldn’t tell me nothin’ when it came to the amount of lip gloss I wore. I literally had tubes and tubes of clear Lip Smacker gloss, and I didn’t use it sparingly.

My Favorite Summer Lip Color from Kat Von D Beauty

I am so sorry for the delay in posts! Just got back from New Orleans a few days ago and I’ve been playing catch up with my life. The trip was amazing, to say the least. My mom and I had a blast – and since the weather was so great, I got to pretend it was really summer for a few days. While there, I also got to revive one of my favorite lip colors that I discovered at…
