As much as I love a great lipstick or lipgloss, neither would look good on my lips if it weren’t for taking proper care of my lips underneath. One thing I’ve learned from beauty blogging is that a great makeup look always starts with great skincare and that leads me to my love of lip balms. A good lip balm will condition and nourish your lips by getting rid of any dry flakes and leaving them extra plump. For anyone who has naturally dry lips, lip balms are an absolute necessity especially if you’re a fan of matte or thicker lipstick formulas. There are so many different options to try, but I can’t get of these five!
Kopari Coconut Lip Love
You guys know I’ve been a fan of Kopari’s products for a while now. I absolutely love the Lip Love balm because it’s free of petroleum and isn’t sticky at all. Of course it’s made up of coconut oil, so it has a very soft scent and feels so light on your lips.
Tatcha Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm
As great as the formula is, the packaging of Tatcha’s original lip balm makes this one extra gorgeous. It’s infused with 23-karat golden shimmer to leave a more radiant finish on your lips. The moisturizing balm is infused with camellia oil, which is one of Tatcha’s hero ingredients and found in a ton of the brand’s products. It leave your lips glowing, but definitely not oily.
By Terry Baume De Rose Lip Balm
This lip balm is more rich compared to the others on the list, and it smells so good. Made up of rose wax, this formula soothes and restructures dry, cracked lips upon application. It also has some surprising anti-aging benefits, that help your lips delay the process of developing any fine lines.
La Mer The Lip Balm
This La Mer lip balm formula is designed to intensely repair the lips with its luxurious properties. Apart from relieving seriously dry lips, it also works to get rid of any discomfort or tightness that some people experience daily. It’s also flavored with a cool, refreshing touch of mint.
Rodin Olio Lusso Lip Balm
A combination of beeswax, shea butter, jasmine and neroli oils seal your lips with essential moisture. Rodin’s Olio Lusso lip balm helps to highlight the natural rosy tone of your lips to make them appear more plump and youthful. It’s great for anyone looking to wear a subtle pink during the day or wants to nourish their lips during the night.
