MAC Lip Scrubtious in 'Summer Berry' - Review

Can I just start by saying how excited I am that more brands are starting to make lip scrubs?  I've always been into exfoliating my lips, but especially since becoming a beauty blogger and doing lip swatch-fests, the fact that more and more brands are joining the lip scrub train makes me super happy.  Gotta take care of that pout!

Up until now, the only brand that carried a lip scrub, that I had access too was e.l.f.  But now MAC is joining the lip scrub game with their 'Lip Scrubtious'.

MAKE UP FOR EVER High Precision Lip Pencil - Review, Swatches, Looks

Lip liner used to never be a part of my beauty regime.  I used to think that it was for people who couldn't paint within the lines, when applying lipstick.  Well, not only did I find that I had a hard time staying within my lip lines, but I also found that I needed lip liner to give my lipstick something to cling to.
