Hello my loves! Summer has finally begun and we've been spending all our time at the country club and by the lake! I wear minimal makeup in the summer so it's usually mascara, eyeliner and lip balm or gloss. Instead of doing dozens of reviews, I decided to combine everything into a collection post! An overview of my collection!
Protecting your lips from the sun and keeping them hydrated is crucial! Who wants to be kissing a girl with dry, crackly lips?
Lip Treatments/ Lip Balms
My lip treatments and balms are products I use at home; either before going out or right before bed. I use Rosebud Salve on a daily basis just to hydrate my lips at night. I use the Chapstick treatment when the air is especially dry or my lips are dry! The Blistex is used for dire emergencies when my lips are completely burnt or peeling. Don't use it too often though because you don't want to keep applying medicine. The Nivea is used right before I head out the door because the SPF 30 protects throughout the day.
Chapstick Overnight Lip Treatment Skin Protectant Lip Balm, Nivea A Kiss of Protection SPF 30, Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment, and Rosebud Salve (Original)

EOS Lip Balms
EOS Smooth Sphere in Lemon Drop SPF 15 and EOS Smooth Sphere in Sweet Mint
Tinted Lip Conditioners
For a flush of color when I'm going out I put on one of these lip conditioners. They brighten up my face while also adding some personality to my outfit! The Clinique balm is a little sticky but makes the lips look full and luscious. It's a man magnet.. TRUST ME! The Nivea gloss adds a hint of pink while also having SPF in it and the Burt's Bees balms add a hint of sophistication.

The NYC stain gives a bright pink color to the lips that literally lasts for 16 hours... through eating, drinking, and talking. These next four are my favorite glosses!
The two by Wet n Wild are super smooth and shiny. They add drama and draw attention to any girls' lips. ;) The next two glosses are substitutes for lipsticks because they are extremely pigmented!
The Prestige glosses are hard to find but they are incredibly pigments and long lasting. They also act as a plumper and every girl loves that! The color is perfect for a soft summer look. The Rimmel gloss is my go- to red lip. It's pigmented, long lasting and also has SPF. (do you see a trend? ahaha)
New York Color (NYC) 16 Hour Lip Stain in 494 Smooch Proof, Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss in 562B Cherry Glaze, Wet n Wild MegaBrilliance Lip Gloss in 593 Crushed Grape, Prestige Wonder-Full Lip Plumping Gloss with Maxi Lip in Chic, and Rimmel Moisture Renew SPF 15 Lip Gloss in SOS Red
Check out the swatches of the lip colors! The lighting made my skin tone look a bit orange, but I assure you, the shades are true to color.
