  1. Great list! I just bought Airy Fairy (because of the hype) and I don't think it looks very nice on me! Haha!

    Love the NYX Jumbo pencils too!

    Thanks for the post!

  2. I love Rimmel Moisture Renew in Sunset too! It was the first lippie I've used up completely in a long time - just bought a new one! The shade is perfect, and I love the way that brand feels on my lips. Great pick!

  3. Thanks for all your suggestions, I love watching your videos, you are such an inspiration. I adore the Emily Awards, my favorite lipsticks are the Revlon Colorburst in Blush and Elf Mineral Lipstick in Rosy Raisin.

  4. Super interesting and entertaining video, Emily! Once again, I have a 'shopping list' of several nice lippies to check out at the drugstore. (-: Love your videos!

  5. Where in Target do you find the EOS lip balms? I've looked for them recently but seem to overlook them.

  6. Great post! I'm in love with MAC lipsticks too

  7. @Tisha -- My Target had them with the Carmex/Chapstick/Blistex in the pharmacy area, near cough drops and Band-Aids and other random first aid kit kind of stuff. (I know, weird.) I also spotted some at Walgreens on an end cap near the nail care supplies.

  8. Hi, Emily! You missed a category: Best Long-wearing Lip Color.

  9. I am a lip gloss/lip stick junkie! Great video! One I really like is LORAC Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss. The color I have is Cliché. It is nice and shiny with a great iridescent pink color. When you put it on it darkens a bit an almost stains your lips. When the shine wears off you still have color. I don't consider it an "everyday lip gloss" as the stain quality makes it one you can't slap on in the car, but it is great. I also love Smashbox and NARS glosses. Great video Emily! :)

  10. Thanks for all the great tips! I enjoy your videos very much. Just wondering if you've tried Lip Medex by Blistex? I live in a high desert climate with really dry skin and my lips were chronically chapped until I found this. They are always nice and soft since I started using it.

  11. Hello Emily,
    Just found you from a friend Sam S. & haven't been able to stop watching your videos. You are so sweet to do all this, especially doing it on your free time. Very excited and can't wait for more! Thanks again!

  12. Thanks so much Emily - I just love, love, love your videos. I print out each one of your Emily Awards and take the list around with me to different stores. So many products that you recommend, I've never tried before. I look forward to a more beautiful 2011. Keep up the good work - Could you maybe sneek in a few more tutorials?

  13. Check out my great give away.. Lots of great stuff to win, you just have to follow a few rules. Just click this link under this!

    In my shoes give away

  14. Love your videos! I especially love the fact that you stay true to the drugstore brands which is very considerate of people's pockets in this current economic climate. I love the Emily awards and am looking forward to trying some of your lip suggestions. Would you consider doing a video on drugstore makeup dupes for highend makeup? Thanks!

  15. As always, thanks for the info! I tend to buy waaaaayyyy too many lip products, so I probably shouldn't be reading this, but I just can't help myself!


  16. Great site. A lot of useful information here. I’m sending it to some friends!

  17. Hi Emily! I just wanted to shoot you a note to thank you for your lip awards. I am crazy for and obsessed with balms, glosses, lip sticks, etc. I went to my local Walgreen's yesterday and bought the EOS sphere in summer berry. I love it so much that I went back today and bought the honeydew! I am now on the hunt for the lemon drop! I also ordered some NYX lip glosses (they are on sale!) and Jordana liners from Cherry Culture. I usually wear Buxom lip gloss from BE which I purchase locally from ULTA. I am in my 40s and love to watch your videos. I love your tutorials and haul videos. Keep up the good work and thanks for everything! Happy New Year to you and Tyler!

  18. Hi Monica, you sound like me, I love everything "lippy." You can get the lemon eos, (my favorite) at Walmart for $1.97. Good luck.

  19. I had to tell you you how much I loved this video and love the Airy Fairy wiht Jordana liner Rock n Rose. Wanted to let you know of a new Revlon colorburst lipstick called Fashion's Night Pout and pair it up with Jordan Natural liner. Gorgeous. This new lipstick is better than Revlon's Nude Attitude!!
