You can never have too many chapsticks, can you? We are always misplacing ours. But our new trick is to keep one in our purse, desk and car. The Pink Pack trio from ChapStick is perfect for our needs. In addition to softening our lips with a blend of 10 protective moisturizers, including aloe and vitamin E, and SPF 15, we will be helping the G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
One out of seven women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. ChapStick will donate $125,000 this year to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation with proceeds from its ChapStick Pink Pack.
Available at drugstores throughout the U.S. during the month of October

Sometimes when picking a lip colour we’ll gravitate towards a sultry, siren red in a slick, creamy lipstick bullet. But, eventually we back down and default to some sort of sheer rosy gloss, for fear our lips will crack upon contact with the lipstick and that we’ll never be able to rock that shade of red in the first place.
We’ve found an interesting compromise in M.A.C’s Tendertone Lipbalm in Sweet & Nice. It looks surprisingly harmless and gloss-like in its teensy glass jar, but the sheer grapey-red looks so grown-up we can’t help but be reeled in. To date we’ve yet to have a complaint in the flaking department, it has SPF 12, and the wide range of colours all seem very flattering.
Looks like our standby lip balm will have to look for another home, because this one’s moving up the ranks.

When you’re trapped at your desk (or wherever else you wish you weren’t) and all you can think about is sinking your feat into some grainy, hot sand, this line of products from Philosophy does a decent job of transporting your mind to an area far, far away (and where piña coladas present themselves to you almost instantly).
All of the products in the Surfer Girl Set have a wickedly sweet, kiwi papaya scent, so you can leave your atomizer at home. The boost of gold shimmer adds some glamour to your beauty routine while the exfoliating body wash banishes rough areas for good. Oh, and a lip shine that mimics surfer-chick subtlety? Yes, please.
Available at Macy’s and Sephora

The secret to a celeb-worthy pout isn’t the entirely in the specific type of gloss or shade of ‘stick – a lot lies in how you treat your lips.
Gentle exfoliation is the key to soft, kissable lips. M·A·C Prep + Prime Microfine Lip Refinisher is a secret weapon in the war against dryness. Part gentle exfoliant, part nourishing conditioner this product is easy to apply and it works. One swipe over the lip area and a little rub action will wipe away dead skin and leave lips lovely. The exfoliator smoothes and the conditioner preps so whatever you put on over top of your newly naked lips will glide on and stay on.
The best part is the sparkly packaging and snap lid so you can throw it in your purse or overnight bag without worry.
