Artichokes are not only good for you, but they're fun to eat!

The Lip Slip by Sara Happ is a very rich, clear balm, but very glossy and super hydrating. I wear it during the day but it's great for overnight. It doesn't budge. Infused with Sweet Almond, Jojoba & Macadamia nut oils. I love that the website says that the inspiration was the supple feel of a shimmery gold YSL calfskin bag. A bottle of Coco Chanel Mademoiselle. Your favorite camisole; soft, sweet, nude, girly and grand. The world doesn’t need another lip balm. It needs the right one. Slip into this. I picked mine up for $24.00
Who could blog about lip balm and not talk about the cult fave by Terry Baume de Rose. They say Baume de Rose is for double use: lips and nails. I would NEVER use this on my nails. What a waste! It’s too precious of a balm to use anywhere but my lips! It is creamy, non-sticky, humectant and soft and has the yummiest, delicate rose fragrance. It’s got SPF15 and is made in France. I have used this so sparingly, that I still have the old packaging! Is it SUPER expensive? At $58, you bet! Do I covet it? Um, yeah! Would I recommend it? In a heartbeat.
is described best by Darphin: Aromatic, age-defying lip balm in a rich, indulgent, creamy formula, instantly melts onto the lips. Nourishes, smooths the appearance of lines and renews suppleness. Lips appear softer, smoother, plumper...rejuvenated. Mostly true. A nice product that feels great. Not sure if it's age defying. I hope so at $40. Ingredients: Argan Oil, Candelilla Wax, Kokum Butter, Mango Butter, Rice Bran Wax, Rosemary Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Virgin Prunus Oil.

So, there I am, standing at the counter, dousing myself with this juice. I can still hear the Neiman Marcus SA now. "In a week, that price is going up $100." It left such a bad taste in my mouth.
Top note: Vanilla from climbing orchids of Tahiti, heady Bourbon vanilla of South America.
