Emily Awards 2013: LIPS!

Hello there! It's already time for part 3 of the Emily Awards! I love, love, love lip products and it feels like I've tried tons of new stuff this year. This part of the Emily Awards is a big mix of old and new favorites. Hopefully this listing of the products is helpful to you! And don't forget- there's still one more video in this series to go... the Finale! In that video I'll be talking about makeup MVPs, best brushes, skincare, body, nails, and lots more! :) 

As always-- just a little reminder to subscribe to my Emilynoel83 YouTube channel if you haven't already! That way you'll see the newest Emily Awards videos in your subscription feed. And I've heard from a few people that their subscription feeds have been a little unreliable lately, so please follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, because I'll always let you know when there's something new to see on those sites! :)
