I have two content ideas in the works, and both of them are “top 10” lists similar to this top 10 list I did of my favorite 2021 subscription box finds.
Only instead of being from last year, I’m working on a top ten all time in two different categories- eyeshadows, and lip balm/lip mask/ lip treatment (not lipsticks or lip gloss). When I work on these lists it includes boxes I’ve reviewed, but also boxes that I’ve personally purchased and received- anything sent in a subscription box is fair game. Since that’s a lot of memories for me to sift through, I was curious about what y’all’s favorites in those categories would be (and maybe it would trigger my own memories )
I’d love to know y’all’s thoughts! If you guys hate these concepts, please tell me so I know I’m not working on things y’all don’t like to read. And if you guys have different top 10 lists you’d like to see, let me know that too!
Do the Sephora Favorites kits count? (Since you do review some of them?) I discovered one of my HG lip balms in one of those - the Pat McGrath Lip Fetish balm in clear (it was in a Sephora Favorites kits I think a couple of years ago). It’s an awesome basic balm - I personally am not the biggest fan of balms that are waxy, or ones that I need a finger to apply, so this one is perfect. Plus, I mean, the packaging! I actually just picked up a few via the PMG website - they were (and still are) an “Xclusive” offer at $14 each (normally $36), so I stocked up.
Yes, the sephora favorites count I actually already have a PMG lip balm on my list, though I think it’s a different one- it’s a balm that gives my lips a hint of color (comes in a white tube) and is so so pretty!
It may very well be the same one - it comes in different shades besides clear, that (from what I understand) give a wash of color. Mine is in a white tube too - with the gold lips!
Wow. That’s a good question. Hmmmm
The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is my fav and I know it was in an Allure box years ago. I still buy it myself after getting it.
Yes! That’s a good one and I’ve bought it too.
Feel free to think on it and come back
@Jessica-MSA I just stumbled across NCLA lip balms in a jar. Have you ever tried those? My cart is filling up. lol Not sure if I should take the plunge?
I’ve actually never tried them! I know a friend likes their lip scrubs but I don’t have personal experience with them.
I love Top 10 lists and anything you write, Jessica!
My contribution is … the Three Ships Hydrating Lip Kit that came in Causebox/Alltrue uh… sometime last year? And I saw they have it again, but I cancelled right before they changed their branding so I don’t always pay attention to their spoilers. ANYWAY. I don’t think the lip kit is a miracle worker by any means, but it SMELLS. AND. TASTES. SO. GOOD. Like birthday cake! Honestly, when I do the sugar scrub step, I let it sit and kind of melt on my lips for a couple of minutes, then rub my lips together, which lets me get a little taste before rinsing it off! I know this is probably gross …
As an actual treatment, I think it does a fine job. Nothing life-changing IMO, except for that sugary sweet flavah.
Thank you for saying that, Amy! I’m trying to think of more content ideas
