What was your initiation into lip balm? Mine was Lip Smackers at age 10, which always came in fun flavours, but never provided enough moisture.
Now that I’m a little older and a little wiser (and ya, a little richer), I find myself straight up splurging on Lip Balms. Sure, there are cheap and cheerful options, but these are the crème de la crème which are totally worth the hype.
BITE BEAUTY Agave Lip Mask - $30 CAD
I use this every night, it’s magical. It’s made with a blend of organic agave nectar, jojoba oil, vanilla co2 extract, and triple the amount of the antioxidant trans-resveratrol found in red wine. Perfect for prepping your lips for matte lipsticks.
BUXOM Powerplump Lip Balm - $21 CAD
Envy Kylie’s lips but don’t want the surgery? This lip balm isn’t going to increase your pout size ten-fold, but it does provide noticeable volume and a custom shade is created by reacting with the pH level of your lips.
DIOR Addict Lip Glow Pomade - $41 CAD
If you need deep nourishment and protection, Dior’s Lip Glow Pomade is gonna be your jam. It’s enriched with a melt-in gel that transforms into a shiny, rosy oil for immediately smooth, plump and radiant lips.
DIOR Crème de Rose Lip Balm - $35 CAD
If you’re obsessed with the smell of rose that isn’t too “perfumey”, you’ll love this balm from Dior. It’s also one of those balms that you’ll love taking out of your bag and applying, as the packing is on point.
RODIN olio lusso Lip Balm - $45.83 CAD
Castor oil, beeswax and shea butter are the key ingredients in this ultra-hydrating balm that’s great for both day and overnight treatment.
