Getting Lippy with it! Top 5 Lip Products for a Kissable Pout06:06:00
Tis the season of bright lipsticks- particularly orangey reds and a splash of pink. With this in mind, its VITAL that one preps their lips first- who wants a scabby, crusty pout?!!! Yeuch!
Here are my top five lip products that are guaranteed to give you kissable lips in a jiffy!
Fist up, although pricey, this Fabulips lipscrub by Bliss is an absolute godsend. Yes, its pricey, but so worth the pennies. It contains amples of sugar crystals, and jojoba seed oil which are the business for removing dry skin and giving them some much needed TLC. Super easy to use too; you simply apply a pea size amount to your lips, rub in a circular motion, and remove with a slightly damp cotton pad. Simples! It smells divine too, like a lemony sugar. The grainy texture really lets you know the formula is working.
I’ve spoken about the converted Nuxe Reve De Miel lip balm many times in this blog, and will keep singing its praises for every more! It smells delightfully of Terry’s Chocolate orange (yes really) and coats the lips effectively and efficiently in one swipe, moisturising them intently. Plus, it’s SO long lasting. I always apply it before bed, and there’s always still traces of it on my lips when I wake up.
Vaseline is one of those retro buys that will always be admired and has stood the test of time. Name me one girl that has never used it, or one make-up artist that doesn’t have it in their kit? Due to its multiple uses, its often overlooked as a simple lip balm, but that is exactly what it is! The petroleum jelly is an amazing softening agent, and it instantly provides a moisture burst. Plus, the cocoa butter version smells delicious. And you can’t go wrong with the iddy tiddy price, can you?
Burts Bees are renowned for their high-quality offerings, and they have now branched out with an array of other wondrous products. However, their lip treatments are their bread and butter, and the original Beeswax lip balm is a buzzing! (See what I did there) The 100% natural ingredients really do reap the benefits. It has a mild, pleasant minty smell, and best of all, it isn’t oily, so it won’t double up as an unofficial lip-gloss like some lip balms on the market. I love the tingly feeling it provides when you apply it too!
Lastly, I was so excited to purchase this beauty. Yes, it’s the most expensive one of the lot, but you do get what you pay for in this life, and the Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil by Clarins is a definite investment. I picked up the newest shade, 05 Tangerine, which is a beautiful neon colour. Whats so special about this product, is its texture. It’s not quite an oil, nor a gel, but a kind of in-between substance, that sinks into the lips quickly, provide lots of goodness almost instantly. The delicate scent sooths the lips, and it offers a lovely sheer, hint of a colour, so great if you want a more natural look. A luxurious treat that you will love. Plus, look how pretty it is!
