Dear Lovely Reader,
This is a product I’ve been eyeing for a while, and I finally ordered it via Birchbox using my points. The PERK UP! Lip & Cheek initially came in shrink wrapped plastic. Lovely berry pink color, and multi-use for cheek and lip, it’s in a thin plastic pan that will fit easily in one’s purse or pocket. It has a mirror within which is nice to check that you’re not overdoing it on the cheeks. Paraben free. Oxybenzone free. And with an SPF of 40? I’m always looking to protect myself from too much sun.
On the lips:
