i met marissa a couple of weeks ago when she and her team were sweet enough to treat me and several other bloggers to an insanely delicious tasting menu at brasserie beck before the gilt warehouse sale. marissa is a doll and she is flawlessly stunning. we instantly got to chatting about beauty, so when she expressed interest in sharing her #lipbomb, i jumped at the chance to feature her. marissa’s lip bomb is im-pressive! this lady totes a lot of lip product in her bag on the daily and she clearly plays favorites, carrying multiple products from nars and bobbi brown. i’ve got my eye on the baby benetint and the mentha lip shine – looks i’ll be making a couple of additions to my #lipbomb thanks to marissa!

show me your lip bomb, tierney

Tierney Lip Bomb

name: tierney
internet home: the preppy leopard
number of products: 5
she says: my lip bomb is nowhere near as fancy as yours (*oh please!), but here’s the pic!
the bomb: 

maybelline colorsensational lip color in red revival, $7.49
such a great take on the classic red lip.
it’s a little darker than my normal red lipsticks
*
mac matte lipstick in diva, $15
a dark dark wine color that seems intimidating in the tube, but is really pretty on.
i love wearing it with smoky eyes–instead of being 1980’s overwhelming,
it’s actually very sultry and vampy.
*
chapstick moisturizer, $1.59
i honestly can’t beat a $2 tube of chapstick.
plus, I don’t feel guilty when I lose it.
*
nyx pump it up lip plumper, $5.49
bought on a whim from UO.  it’s a pretty gloss,
but i don’t really believe in lip plumpers.
*
jouer lip enhancer conditioning lip treatment, $14
it feels so nice when I put it on, but i don’t think
i’ll buy the full price one when my chapstick is so darn amazing.
**
tierney and i have been blog friends for the longest. i wish we got to hang out in person more often as our love for beauty products (lips, in particular) always sparks insightful convo. her lip bomb says a lot about her and i could not be more appreciative of her thoughts on each product – plus, most of these are new names for the #lipbomb project, which is fun to see.

quite the savvy little #lipbomb, here. i love that jen doubled up on the covergirl and revlon lips – both are dynamite if you haven’t tried. (and i’m totally adding anemone to my list!) there’s a lot of flavor in this group, too – everything from mint to vanilla cola, to berry x 2. a great and very affordable group. thanks for sharing, jen!

show me your lip bomb, nicole

city girl in me lip bomb

name: nicole
internet home: city girl in me
number of products: 8
she says: i’m embarrassed to say this was not staged. i actually had 8 lip products stuffed in my little SJ bag.
the bomb: 

revlon just bitten kissable balm stain in crush, $7.49
bobbi brown rich color gloss in dusty rose, $24
bobbi brown creamy color for lips and cheeks, $20

nicole and i met at the ifb conference in 2012 and it was beauty love at first sight. she is a super talented make up artist (she did my face for my head shots that you see around the blog) and an all around sweet-as-sugar girl. nicole’s beauty expertise comes through clearly through her #lipbomb! like most of you, we definitely share an affinity for the three b’s: bobbi brown, bite, and burt’s bees. i miss her terribly since she and her hubby made the move back to nyc, but i’m happy to say that we keep in touch through the ‘net and have even managed to connect in the big city on one of my many business trips. i highly recommend that you take a journey over to nicole’s blog for a full dose of beauty and fashion goodness!

i love seeing your #lipbombs, so please keep sending them to theglossarie@gmail.com.

show me your lip bomb, elizabeth

eliabeth's lip bomb

name: elizabeth
number of products: 5
she says: couldn’t live without any of them!
the bomb: 

fresh sugar lip treatment spf 15 in berry, $22.50
fresh sugar lip gloss in sugar flirt, $18
kiehls lip balm #1, $7
elizabeth arden 8-hour lip protectant, $19.50
estée lauder all day lipstick in spiced cider, $18.50

i plucked elizabeth’s lip bomb from the pile of many for several reasons – not the least of which is its seasonal appropriateness. two lip balms known for their richness and healing, a tinted lip balm, a gloss and a lipstick both beautifully berry in color – it all sums up to one wickedly winter’esque #lipbomb. beyond that, the single thing on my shopping list this weekend has been elizabeth arden’s 8-hour cream and as i popped into my inbox this morning to put this post together, there it was staring me in the face! so thanks for the nudge, elizabeth. this girl has a date with the beauty counter.

nothing like a dancing #lipbomb for your superbowl sunday viewing pleasure! this charming collection comes from one of my very best blogging friends (and real life dc partner in crime), meg biram. she is a wizard consultant, a talented artist, and she is also half of the mastermind duo behind to&from. you can read meg’s lifestyle musings on the edit and i would definitely recommend keeping both your eyes on this girl – she is one to watch! i am so lucky to count her among my favorite people.

show me your lip bomb, lindsay

lindsay's lip bomb

name: lindsay rogers
internet home: belle belle beauty blog
number of products: 6

bonne bell lip smacker in dr. pepper, $1.99

lindsay and i met at lucky fabb in 2011, but we had been fairly obsessively reading each other’s beauty blogs well before then. it is so fun to know lindsay and compare blogging notes – she’s very much like a kindred beauty spirit! her #lipbomb makes me so happy, mainly because it includes both bonne bell and tom ford and i think that’s unbelievably awesome. if you don’t know lindsay, i would definitely encourage you to browse through her beauty musings. and if you want to send me your #lipbomb, please do!

show me your lip bomb, olivia

olivia's lip bomb

name: olivia hayward
internet home: olivia is the talented designer + entrepreneuress behind mane message
she says: crazy that all of these lip products are constantly with me! i feel like some of these rotate in and out, but a few are true staples.
number of products: 9
the bomb: 

nars semi matte lipstick in heat wave, $24
nars sheer lipstick in love devotion, $24
nivea a kiss of moisture, $2.99
buxom big & healthy lip sticks in monaco + barcelona, $19 each
revlon colorburst lipstick in raspberry, $5.49
chapstick lip moisturizer, 3 for $4.75
revlon colorburst lip gloss in sunset peach, $7.49
revlon just bitten kissable balm stain in romantic, $8.99

now, i have never met olivia but i know that we would be fast friends. i have loved and adored this girl since discovering her impeccably designed and incredibly well edited line of bracelet hair ties two years ago. she started her successful e-commerce and wholesale brand in her college dorm room and it has developed into something that’s been recognized by some of the industry greats. it has been amazing to watch her grow!

a true beauty addict, her #lipbomb is impressive for two reasons: 1) olivia obviously plays favorites – nars, buxom, and revlon are each represented multiple times (meaning she clearly believes in those brands, i love the loyalty) and 2) she’s got some limited edition shades in the mix that are no longer available (a girl after my own heart).

this is definitely not the last that we will be seeing of olivia or mane message on this here blog – i’m so thrilled to feature her #lipbomb today!

show me your lip bomb, sharona

sharona lip bomb

name: sharona
she says: love this project! here’s what I carry – so many!! if you haven’t tried the c.o. bigelow, i highly recommend it!!
number of products: 7
the bomb: 

c.o. bigelow my favorite lip balm, $7.50
aquaphor healing ointment, 2 for $5.99
jouer lip enhancer, $14
fresh sugar mini
pangea organics pyrenees lavendar with cardamom lip balm, $12
stila lip glaze in lights (from this trio)
tarte lipsurgence natural lip tint in joy, $24

reader #lipbombs are my favorite! don’t get me wrong, blogger bombs are great, but there’s something about seeing how an average jane spends her hard earned money on beauty. sharona is a great example of how to invest in some quality staples – plus i’m totally falling victim to her c.o. bigelow endorsement!
