I am a lip balm fanatic because after using the EOS lip balm for years, I woke up one day with a bad reaction that cursed me with dry lips. Yeah, not cute! I’ve tried just about every lip balm out there and the Vaseline Lip Therapy Mini is honestly my holy grail. (I once went through a tube of cherry Chapstick in two days due to the formula drying out my lips, causing me to apply more and more to keep my lips moisturized.) Nothing and I mean nothing else keeps my lips as hydrated as well as Vaseline does. I’m telling you guys, the struggle is real.
It’s important to always keep your lips moisturized, especially when you’re a constant wearer of liquid lipsticks like myself. Some liquid lipstick formulas tend to dry out the lips throughout the day, so it’s vital to exfoliate and keep lips hydrated to prevent any discomfort. These three products have been a part of my daily lipstick application and removal routine to keep my lips looking great at all times!
First, I use the Glam Glow Poutmud Fizzy Lip Treatment & Wet Lip Treatment. I am a huge fan of their mud masks and was so excited when they expanded their line to include lip products last year. This lip duo includes a fizzy lip exfoliating treatment and lip balm to apply after. I apply the fizzy treatment to my lips and massage between 5 – 10 seconds to pre-exfoliate. Then, I apply some water to the treatment on my lips and continue to massage to activate the ‘fizzing’. After rinsing and drying off, I apply the wet lip treatment, which is basically a lip balm.
Next, is the Best Damn Beauty Best Damn Lip Mask. I purchased this a month ago and I am already in love! It is a lip hydrator with awesome ingredients like beeswax, jojoba seed oil and shea butter to name a few. The instructions note to use “nightly as an overnight intense lip treatment”, which I do but I also have been using throughout the day and before applying my liquid lipsticks. It is super hydrating, lightweight on the lips and smells great. This product has been doing such a great job at keeping my lips moisturized and soft! It is a little bit on the pricier side for a lip product but honestly, a little application goes a long way and I feel I will have this product for a while.
Last, is the NYX Be Gone! Lip Color Remover. Honestly, every girl needs this product. I use this daily to remove my lipstick. Apply a liberal amount on your lips, wipe off and be amazed at how easily it removes all lipstick from your lips. Like even the toughest liquid lipstick comes off so effortlessly! And it’s infused with Vitamin E to leave your lips feeling soft after product removal. This product is definitely life changing.
