Emily Awards 2012: LIPS!

Yay for lips! As a lip product addict who has tried lots and lots of different products, I'm rather picky when it comes to naming favorites! We all know it's not just about how pretty a particular product looks as soon as you apply it to your lips- but also how long it wears and how comfortable it feels.  I hope you discover some new favorites in this portion of the Emily Awards! 

Guess what? It's not over yet! The final part of the awards is the Finale! 
If you want to know about favorites for brushes, tools, skincare, body, hair, and nails... 
plus the MVPs (Most Valuable Products)... you must tune in! 
Look for the Emily Awards Finale Monday on Beauty Broadcast!

*Denotes the number of years a particular product has won. 
This is the 5th year for the Emily Awards.

  6. Love too faced nude beach! If you like the Buxom line check out Pretty Amazing lip color! It's a gloss/lipstick with some amazing staying power (hence the name I guess) it doesn't dry up like most long lasters! Thanks for doing the Emily awards! I can't wait for the finale!

  7. Need to know what foundation you were wearing and what powder looks flawless !!!!

  8. Thank you so much for this series! I have been waiting all year for it!! I have a suggestion for a high end tinted lip balm: Korres Lip Butters! I am sure you have already tried them, but if you haven't check them out! I suggest wild rose (sheer red), pomegranate (sheer coral pink) and jasmine (sheer lt pink - basically clear). They have a nice scent and really protect your lips and feel so nice!
