Pumpkin Pie Lip Lube - woo hoo!

m m m!

Pumpkin Pie Lip-Lube-In-A-TubeTM

Damn near edible but I prefer scented lip lube without the sugary-ness so it's unsweetened (can be sweetened upon request). Perfect size for your purse, pocket or desk.

My luscious blend of beeswax (vegan option available), vegetable oils & vitamin E (organic, not synthetic) and flavor. A touch of palm oil for a natural orange color. Ordinarily formulated as a gloss/balm hybrid to give a bit of shine, but I can also do NO shine for the dudes (although they seem to take their sig others' lube all the time anyway) or for women who just prefer a non-shiny harder balm, in a handy twist-up tube. If you prefer a more liquid consistency, check out my glosses with lip brush [yeah, Stila, bite me]

Neato finds and lists




OK, this is a great feature is now live on etsy. The man behind the work is a genius (and yes, like everyone else I have a crush on him and will my name my first-born "Jared" even if it's a girl). Alas, like fruitflies, they have a limited (and short - 48 hour) lifetime, after which they will *poof*:

Do you have a fear of committing to anything?


I am one of those hopeless people who loves sampling products. Or maybe it's just a fear of commitment.

Surely there are others like me? Want to try some soaps or other bath & beauty products without committing to one thing?

Try this sampler.

Tubes to Glide Over & Lube Your Lips :: Tubes May Make The Girls Jump You, In A Good Way


I like lip glosses but I sometimes find them - well - too glossy. I like the nourishment of a lip balm, but well, I often find them, er, a bit too waxy. Well, what is a girl to do? Of course, make her own gloss-balm hybrid, conveniently packaged into a twist-up tube so you can carry your lip lube in your bag or in your desk.

My own blend of beeswax (vegan option available upon request), vegetable oils & vitamin E (organic, not synthetic) and flavor. It's firm in texture without being waxy and just . . . glides.

Lest you think this is just for girls, dudes like them as well. One of my recent buyers told me her hubby took her Mojito lip lube - I suppose that's a good sign. Except she doesn't have her mojito any more . . .

The other 2 tubes in this 4-some are 2 tubes of solid perfumes. Yeah, take those wherever you go or just stick one in your desk or gym locker (that might be a good thing).

Click here or on the pic to get more info - I'm raising prices on everything August 1, so get them now at this phenom price. I mean, you can't even see a matinee movie for $6 - far better to smell good and have soft, luscious lips, don't you think? RO for list of scents and flavors.

:: IF YOU LIKE PINA COLADAS - a wonderful blend of coconut & pineapple

:: Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries - for some reason this reminds me off Tess Of The D'Urbevilles and Godiva

:: Chocolate Banana - childhood nostalgia if you're like me and had these at fairs

:: Banana & Coconut - inspired by one of my fav Vietnamese desserts - deep-fried banana and coconut ice cream

:: mmm Mango - (sweetened) yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmy! imo, the next best thing to the nectar mangos I've had in the Caribbean. Ya, mon!

:: COFFEE - for those who wish coffee tasted just like it smells ~ for those of us who would like to break a caffeine habit . . .

:: CHAI TEA SPICE BLEND - smells just like the chai tea I like - can we say cassia, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and nutmeg? yum.

:: Rose - weird, I know, but did anyone else notice a lot of high-end cosmetics smell of rose? Hoity-toity without the accompanying price tag or snooty wanna-be models behind the counter

:: Chardonnay Grapes - I think it smells like sweet grapes + something not quite defineable

:: Pineapple

:: Lime & Pineapple

:: Lime & Coconut

:: Lime

:: Clove

:: Orange & Clove

:: Cinnamon

:: Cinnamon & Clove

:: MOCHA

:: Coconut & Chocolate - some times you feel like a nut, some times you don't . . . (*music playing*)


Solid scents - lots more but here are my favs:
Bay Rum
A sexy masculine scent. No need to be more articulate than that. The men who use it love it, others love the scent on their men. I don't know if this is pheromone in a tube (not that kind of tube) but it sure smells like it.

Luscious Lavender
I am not a big fan of straight lavender, but I've done a little mixing with some other essential oils and I love the resulting scent in this soap - I've converted a number of "non-lavender" types with this scent. A blend of essential oils, yielding lavender with a hint of sweet woodsiness & a breath of citrus.

Stroke Me
OK, so I'm being slightly tongue-in-cheek. But this scent made me think warm, velvety and strokable. Warm scents of musk, amber, sandalwood and a touch of vanilla, contains fragrance. I don't particularly like any of those scents alone but this blend ROCKS. Unisex.
