Hey guys, this week I thought I would talk to you about my favourite lip balms. The weather here in England is horribly cold and rainy, so it’s time to start taking more care of our lips as they can get very dry this time of year! In the summer I love to wear bold colours, but as the weather turns I start to use more tinted balms and more neutral shades which work well with slightly darker eye makeup looks. Oh I do love a smokey eye in winter! Anyway here are my picks for perfect lips…
My first pick is my favourite of them all and it’s the NUXE reve de miel ultra-nourishing balm. This is an absolute dream to use and keeps your lips luscious all day long. I swear I still have soft lips the next day!
Next up is the Burt’s Bees beeswax lip balm which is so good. It slightly tingles when you put it on which I like because it feels like it’s working! This is very affordable and handy to use out and about as it’s in a stick form.
Another affordable lip treatment is by Carmex. I’m sure you have heard of this brand before as it’s pretty well known for being amazing. You can pick this up in any drugstore for barely anything; I even spotted that Primark have started selling these now! This has a waxy texture which coats the lips well and helps to add shine.
Lastly I just wanted to chuck this in as well: it’s the Clarins instant light natural lip perfector. This is quite pricey but I think this is worth it as it has a tint to it as well. This really nourishes your lips and does make them look flawless. So wins all round! I have the shade 01 which is a pretty baby pink shade. I have a swatched this so you can see the actual colour…
Well there you have it: my fave lip balms for winter. I hope this was helpful and gives you some inspiration to crack your lip balms out too! See you next week 🙂
