Sugar Scrub

The fastest and easiest way to get soft and kissable lips is to start with an exfoliation session. Gently apply lip scrub in a circular motion and remove with a tissue. Always follow with lip balm.

Lip Balm

A crucial step in your beauty routine, lip balm keeps your lips soft and supple–which also happens to extend the wear of your lipstick.

Lip Plumper

Get a plump pout by applying this moisturizing collagen treatment every day before your lipstick. It doesn't sting and results are subtle but noticeable.

Lip Liner

Before applying your lipstick, use a matte lip liner to line and fill in the entire lip. Liner is meant to keep your lipstick from feathering so when applied to lips first makes your color last all day long.

Lip Stain

A pretty stain is the perfect way too kiss-proof your lip color. It won't smudge like lipstick and it leaves a pretty wash of color on your lips that goes with any makeup look–even if you're trying to look like you're not wearing any at all.
