Many women feel immense shame and discomfort about their imperfections, to the point of hiding under layers of clothing.

Pucker Up to Pink

Published on by


It’s that lovely time of year… Valentine’s Day. And that means pink & red everywhere!

It is said that the color Pink can affect us both mentally and physically. The color has been associated with feelings of passion, happiness, and friendliness. Physically, brighter pinks can stimulate energy and encourage confidence. Personally when I think of pink, I think of fun, flirty, happy, and strong willed girly girls. We see the color around the world… in nature, fashion, and in many beauty products. Instead of looking at flowers or wearing your favorite pink scarf, why don’t you explore your options and opt for a new daring pink lipstick! Maybe even use skin care products that incorporate the inspirational pink color in them. Here are some of our favorite pink products:

Peter Thomas Roth Lips to Die For Pink Bombshell Lip Balm: Protect and maintain your lips with this invigorating daily lip conditioner. Lips to Die for Pink Bombshell Lip Balm delivers a natural, rosy glow and leaves lips soft, supple, sexy and kissable.

Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Blush- Something About Berry: This  baked blush was developed with easy application and a no-fail color in mind,  taking the guesswork out of creating a sweet, romantic glow. Contains 3 individual shades baked together on one adorable palette. Choose a single color to brighten and highlight or blend all three colors together and apply.

SpaRitual Infinity Loving Kit: This set allows you to try an affectionate crème or a heartfelt shimmer, or you can use both to create your own nail looks. Brighten your smile and add maximum moisture to your lips with vegan, gluten-free mini lip gloss included. Kit includes: Idylic Nail Lacquer- Sheer Pink Crème, Infinitely Loving Nail Lacquer-Sheer Hot Pink Glitter and Infinitely Loving Lip Gloss- Sheer Pink, mini size.

Colorescience Pro SPF 35 Sunforgettable Lip Shine Pink: Give your lips a hint of perfectly pink shimmer and shield from the environment with Lip Shine Gloss Colore SPF 35 by Colorescience Pro. This chemical and dye free formula provides instant UVA and UVB sun protection and long lasting moisture.

Pur Minerals

Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup SPF 15 Blush MediumDo you love makeup, but can’t find the right one? Do they break out your skin or irritate it? Are you tired of your makeup appearing powdery or dull on your skin?

Well I have got exciting news for you! Recently we had product training with Pur Minerals and my sensitive, reactive skin put their products to the test! To my surprise, after continuously wearing the product for a couple weeks, I’m in love! I have finally found a foundation that helped clear my skin and looked natural. Here are my top reasons why you’ll love it too!

Pur Minerals is vegan friendly and on their way to being organic approved. The complexion, skincare, & lip products are Gluten free. They use a formulation of DermaWhite & Ceratin complex containing purified, nonirritating retinol and moisturizing Ceramides. That means that while you use this daily you can help correct or prevent skin concerns, plump or firm the skin, and help smooth fine lines or wrinkles all while balancing your skin tone. The foundation won’t dry your skin, is oil free, and uses a talc-free formulation. While you can boost the healthy results with use of their skincare, it will also work in conjunction with any other skincare you’re already using.

Seems like the perfect skin care plan right! I won’t bore you with in depth formulation talk, but Pur Minerals products don’t get the recognition they deserve! If you feel like you’re in a makeup rut or even looking to try something new, give them a try. I give them a 10 star rating and a high five! *wink
