Nude Lips With a Sexy Shine

As both a lip balm addict and a lip gloss lover, I have a hard time deciding which gooey stuff should go on my lips at any given moment. Even if I want a nude look for my lips, plain old lip balm doesn't give me the polished look I need. For that reason, I am currently obsessed with C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine, made by the Greenwich Village apothecary brand that's sold at Bath & Body Works. I love this stuff for so many reasons, starting with the super-high-gloss finish that makes even nude lips look nicely made up. Better yet, the moisturizing shine feels more like lip balm than lip gloss (note: kissing partners will appreciate this), and the tingly, minty flavor (advertised as a breath freshener) doesn’t conflict with my gum. You can buy it here for $7.50.

This stuff is AWESOME!!! Get the ULTRA Mentha version in the darker green tube. It has more kick! I love how this balm is uber glossy but not sticky. The mint taste totally reminds me of Doublemint gum. :)I'm getting these as little stocking stuffers for my girlfriends. (Right now Bath & Body Works has a promo on these 3 for $15)

I have this also, actually I have like 3 tubes because I always buy a new one before it's completely gone.
