Product Review: Ghost Girl Greetings

I’ve been eyeing Ghost Girl Greetings merch for awhile now. I’ve been desperately trying to purchase the mug with the cute Annabelle/Chucky/Jason/Ghostface/Pinhead faces on it, but due to high demand, I always get to the site when it’s already “Out of Stock” (West Coast woes, yo). So, when the makeup bag with the same cute horror face combo became available I decided to snag it asap, and while I was at it, I decided to pick up the Freddy Krueger inspired lip balm I’m Your Chapstick Now in Coffee, because, why not?

Now, I’m very picky when it comes to lip balms because I need them to be a certain type of softness and consistency (meaning not sticky nor pulling a Houdini and disappearing in 20 minutes either). The good news is, that this lip balm surpassed my expectations. The moment I applied it, I felt as though my lips were embraced by a soft cloud of coffee sweetness. It was comforting, smoothing, and just plain blissful. To say that I’m in love with it is an understatement, to say that I wish to replace ALL of my lip balms with this one would be accurate.

It was such a pleasant surprise to be so pleased with the lip balm since my whole reason to purchase from their online store was for me to get the makeup bag (which is utterly adorable and I recommend any horror fan who wishes to carry their makeup or essentials in style to buy it!).

Overall, these won’t be my last purchases from this shop and I’m still holding out hope to some day own the ever elusive mug I pine for. A girl can only dream.

5 Best Lip Balms for Softer Lips!

Long before I learned how to read and write, cosmetics were (and still are) one of my areas of passion and expertise. My parents gave me my first vanity at the tender age of three, and with a whole palette of eyeshadows and tubes of different coloured lipsticks, where I would create various looks, and whole thus whole new characters or alter-egos. But out of all the products out there, one of my greatest obsessions is lipbalm. Nothing could break your entire look like dry, chapped lips. And after many years of experimenting and trials, five lipbalms have stood out out of the sea of options.

Now I know that personal preference is just that, personal, but the key ingredients to what makes a lip balm absolutely amazing are, the softness (which usually means it’s a bit thicker and not on the shiny side) and the scent (an awful smelling lip balm is quite distracting, especially when one wears it 24/7 as I do!).

Here are my five favourite lip balms, in order of preference:

LABELLO – CHERRY KISS

Not only does this lip balm promises soft lips with its conditioning ingredients, but it smells amazing. The slight reddish tint is perfect when you’re on the go and don’t really want to commit to lipstick. I’ve been using this since I was ten, and no other product tops this one. Usually retails around $8 on amazon, but if you’re in Europe you can purchase it around 2 euros.

EOS – LIP BALM

What I absolutely love about this lip balm is the pure softness. It’s very thick, which means that it doesn’t easily dry out, so less applications than your normal lip balm are required. Plus it’s made from organic ingredients, which means no harsh chemicals. Cause ya know…not all of wish to be spreading lead on our lips (looking at you L’Oreal). Retails around $4.

CAUDALIE – LIP CONDITIONER

This lip balm smells amazing, and on top of that it is very moisturizing with a hint of honey goodness to make your lips that extra soft! It goes on colorless, making it the perfect balm to wear under lipsticks or glosses. Or at night and not leave residual hue on your pillowcases. Retails around $12.

MARGOT ELENA TOKYO MILK BON BON LIP BALM – CHERRY BOMB

I’ll admit it right now, most of my lip balm flavours revolve around cherry. This lip balm is the best smelling cherry lip balm there is. The feel is extremely luxurious, as is the beautiful packaging. Put this on your lips and set the little case on your vanity and you’ll be feeling like a gorgeous Marie Antoinette in no time. Retails around $12.

SHISEIDO WATER IN LIP – PURE PINK (CHERRY BLOSSOM POWDER)

When it comes to innovative and amazing beauty products, Japan is the place to go. They’ve had BB creams years before the rest of the world got wind of the craze. This is why Shiseido’s lip balm is one of my all time favourites, with Vitamin E and Gritilretin Acid blended with Italian mineral water, it provides exceptional moisture for hours. As most of the lip balms mentioned, it doesn’t have a real tint to it, but a slight pearly sheen, giving the lips a youthful look. Retails around $5.
