found out Sarah Palin's lip gloss!

I know there has been interest in this, and makeup artist Amy Strozzi today finally released the info on Palin's lip gloss used during the campaign:

"Tip from the Trail: For a full day of wear, cover your (entire) lip with L’Oreal Automatic Lip Pencil in Nudes, soften with a brush or smudge it with your finger, and add a thin coat of Carmex. Top with a swipe of Chanel Glossimer in Giggle and you are good to go."

I hear the gloss may have been discontinued but is up for bid on eBay.
shoulder-length 3a/b, depending on weather and products (or lack of products!)

    What is Carmex? It sounds like a car wax.

    It's just a brand name of a lip balm. It's got quite a following. I don't like it personally. I'm sure you could substitute any lip balm in that "recipe".

    Oh man, I LOVE Carmex; it is the only thing that really keeps my lips from getting chapped in the winter. It is a sort of heavy-duty lip balm. I live in Wisconsin, and it gets crazy cold and dry in the winter. I've actually been meaning to pick some up.
    3a/b, with looser curls at the top and some little corkscrews at the ends.
    Semi-CG: No sulfates or 'cones; still unsure about proteins.
    HG's: AOHR and MOP-C for sure! Still searching for the perfect gel. :tongue5:
    Loving the Curl-Ease towel! :smurfin:

    Random gunao: Did you know Carmex is made in Wisconsin? It's made in Franklin, which is a suburb of Milwaukee.

    Carmex is medicated and has a pretty strong scent; not for the faint of heart, but probably works well in Alaska as well as Wisconsin! ;)

    Please excuse any typos. For the time being, we are blaming it on my computer.

    I did know that it was made in WI, that's probably partly why I like it. Buy local! :toothy8:

    Apparently they make a strawberry scented one now, I saw it in Target last night, but I don't mind the smell so I just got the regular.

    Yeah, when the wind chill is -25 like it is today, Chapstick just ain't gona cut it. :reindeer:

    I'd prefer Badger, which is all natural, if I could find it. I went back to Whole Foods where I found it originally & posted about it on another lip balm thread. There wasn't even a spot on the shelf for it! I've looked plenty of places since then & I've found not a single tube of any flavor/scent. :(

    I've only been wanting to try the Creamy Cocoa because I can't find an all natural cocoa butter-only/mainly, unless I buy the $8 a tube Body Shop brand at a 30 miles-plus drive away. :cussing:

    That Carmex stuff is wicked. It was much too strong in scent & made my lips hurt, probably from the menthol and/or camphor. They eventually started drying out.

    Even Burt's Bees original became too strong with the high concentration of mint.

    I had to go with Whole Foods mint, which is more like a vanilla-mint, if there's even vanilla in it. It's just lighter, not so strong, & creamy.

    Isn't there a story about Carmex being really addicting, in that the more one applies it, the more one needs it, because it actually DRIES the lips out, or something? I've never used a lip balm myself, even in cold dry weather. Shea butter really helps though, hands down, or Aquaphor in the little tube.

    I thought that was about Chapstick. I try not to use Carmex cux of the petroleum but dang does it work and I only have to apply occasionally.

    Neutrogena is my favorite. When I can't find it, I get Trader Joe's lip balm virtuoso.
