One of my ongoing beauty missions is a relentless quest for moist, supple lips. Why you ask? Three reasons:
1) I HATE the feeling of dry lips—tight, flaky and yucky
2) Dry lips make you look and feel old and dried up
3) And last but not least, plump, hydrated, wet, pouty lips are sexy as hell and kissalicious!
With that said, I can now reveal (‘In No Particular Order’ for you DWTS fans), 7 of my Favorite Lip Quenchers du jour:
Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment with SPF 15 ($24) This is the latest creation by those creative geniuses at Fresh, which is an enhanced upgrade of the cult fav Sugar Lip Treatment. It has the same nourishing oils, hydrating butters and a yummy bright citrus and sugar flavor, but this new version also has a delightful subtle rose tint that makes your lips look flushed and just bitten. I love the way this product feels going on my lips because it has the right amount of hydration and I love the lemon and sugar flavor. But I think I love this new and improved version even more, because of the pretty pink aluminum packaging and the addition of a reddish pink tint–it feels like a very girly lip treat!
Jo Malone Vitamin E Lip Conditioner ($30) I recently discovered this lovely lip conditioner packed with vitamin E and liked it instantly. I found it nicely moisturizing, healing because of the vitamin E, and slightly cooling with a hint of menthol. I really like the light texture and weight of this product and it has just the right amount of gloss. And I always like a hint of flavor in my gloss, and the minty quality in this lip conditioner is perfect and refreshing.
Dermalogica AGE Smart Renewal Lip Complex ($27) This is the most unique lip product in this group because it has THE best and most innovative packaging and delivery system–you twist the barrel and it pushes out a rich, emollient, nourishing balm through seven little holes and onto your lips. This inspired dispenser drenches my lips with a luscious, moist anti-aging lip balm-type-serum that I just love, and it truly feels more like an anti-aging treatment rather than just a lip balm.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Treatment ($8.99) is my new BFF! This must-have treatment instantly infuses your lips with intense conditioning and gives your lips a noticeably improved texture. This balm-meets-gloss instantly makes your lips look plump, soft and pretty and locks in hydration for 24 hours. And for under ten bucks, it’s a purse essential!
