DIVA [ˈdiːva] (noun): An operatic prima donna. A female version of a hustler. A usually glamorous and successful female performer or personality. A woman who has self-confidence, self-respect, and hella swagger. She knows who she is and exactly where she is going.
True divas should be treated with respect for their enormous talent and strong will.
It's been quite a while since I've done any product reviews, and now here I am playing catch up with the blog, with another product to rave about that I simply cannot get enough of. It's the Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment. I have the Rose, and Laura has it in the Plum shade. We both have agreed it's a product we can't live without.
I'm not really sure what to classify it as- it doesn't give your lips a gloss, so much as it adds a hint of color with SPF protection, and smooth hydration. It goes on really creamy, and has an amazing citrus-y scent. The packing also feels really weighty in your hand, as opposed to some lightweight plastic Chapstick, so I think subconsciously, the heavier weighted product makes you feel like you're getting more bang for your buck.
My sister and I each got them in our stockings for Christmas 2010, and here is a picture of what my beloved lip product looks like, circa January 2012:
The product is totally worn down, and even the print on the packaging has worn off from so much use. A few days after this picture was taken, I finally had to toss the empty stick in the trash, and what a bittersweet moment that was.
As much as I used to be a total makeup whore, I am a recovering addict, trying not to buy products and use what's in my seemingly-never-ending arsenal of cosmetics. However, how often does one really finish an entire lip gloss? I mean, it takes forever, and in this case, a little over a year, so that should tell you how much I love this product, that I could use it up entirely in a year's time, and that I am prepared to purchase a replacement for it soon. They are pricey at $22.50 a pop at Sephora, but to me, worth the luxury expense.
