Lipstick + Lipgloss = Happy Lips

I've been playing around with a couple of lip duos - a hard color on one side, a gloss on the other - and I love them. Gloss is the rave, but sometimes it's nice to have a matte lippy (an homage to the olden days) too!

The stick/ gloss duo cuts down on the necessary room needed for a gloss AND a stick. When it's in one convenient tube, you save space in your makeup bag! And, of course, it allows you to opt out of the guessing work - say goodbye to the "what gloss would go with this lipstick?" When the gloss is attached to the lipstick, you know the colors work brilliantly together! Sympatico!

Here are two of my favorites:

Senna Cosmetics Lip Sync
- "Yummy biscotti flavored moisturizing lipstick and a complimentary lip gloss in one elegant, cosmetic-bag friendly package. Gives you 3 looks when you layer." Comes in three shades, we love the A La Mode (peach). The lipstick isn't too dark (it has a wee bit of sparkle but nothing too outrageous) and the gloss delivers the perfect amount of shine. Layered together, the color reminds us of Old Hollywood Glam - a nude/ peach tint to entice a bold eye. PRICE TAG: $24.00

Sonia Kashuk Sheer Lip Color and Plumping Glossy Tint in Passion Fruit - A super sexy sumer pink with a sheer lipstick that almost resembles the look of a stain (although it doesn't stay on for nearly as long) and an amazingly shiny gloss that plumps your pucker - lips look big, bold and kissable! Perfect to wear with a bronzed face and a bare eye. PRICE TAG: $8.99 (also available at Target)
