My lips are chronically chapped and no lipstick looks good on sad cracked lips. I have to scrub off my lips 3 times a day. Yes, you heard me right. 3 times! Naturally I tend to gravitate toward lip balms, treatments, and lipsticks with a moisturizing property that won’t emphasize my dry patches.
Sisley Confort Extreme Levres is my favorite lip treatment. Very soothing and nutritive. It is thick and a little sticky in the jar, however, will melt nicely and last long on your lips. It’s the perfect lip balm during the cold winter months. Though quite pricey, it is worth the investment.
I also like my RMS Beauty Lip & Skin balm as it is really nourishing, organic, natural and smells good. One thing I don’t like about it is that I have to reapply it often because it does not last too long. Lip2Cheeks in Diabolique and Illusive are such gorgeous colors, highly pigmented and quite hydrating as well. Does not last long, either. Nevertheless I love them.
Lastly, Hurraw! Grapefruit Lip Balm smells like a grapefruit candy and Moon Balm like chamomile & vanilla. They are also organic, raw, natural and moisturizing with decent lasting power, yet so much cheaper. Totally great value for money. I think I might try other flavors as well.
Dior Addict Lip Glow and Tarte LipSurgence Lip tint in glaze are quite hydrating, but obviously not as emollient as lip balms. I use them mostly during summer when my lips are not too dry.
I apply either Sisley Confort Extreme Levres or Hurraw! Moon Balm right before I go to bed since they are extra hydrating and nourishing. Others during the day.
