The 7 Best Products For Your Lips’ Needs
By Alix Turoff
Some girls are big, bold lipstick wearers while others prefer a simple ChapStick.
Well, we’ve tested ’em all (or so it seems like it!) and picked some favorites for whatever your lip product preference.
If your lips need some serious TLC… Check out IT cosmetics CC Lip Serum and Blurred Lines Smooth-Fill Lipstick Duo ($26.81), which is designed to both heal dry, cracked lips and provide a nice color. The CC+ Lip serum works to hydrate and revive the lips while the Blurred Lines lipstick offers a rich color and fills in any fine lines. Once your lips are repaired, you’ll still get the benefits of the nourishing serum each time you apply!
If you’re looking for something organic and plant based… Try Vapour Beauty Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss ($22). Research has shown that anything you put on your lips is absorbed and winds up in the digestive tract. Try this plumping gloss made of all plant based and 70% organic ingredients to add color and shine to the lips. As an added bonus plumping liposomes give lips a fuller, pouty effect
If you want to add some volume to your lips without injections… Give LipFusion Micro-Injected Collagen Lip Plump ($36) a try! It uses dehydrated marine collagen micro spheres, which are absorbed by the lips and work with the lip’s natural moisture to plump up to hold the moisture they collect, causing the lips to swell. This effect lasts for up to 24 hours!
If you’re not sure if you want a lipstick or lip balm… We love Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($17)! It has mango and shea butter to provide a hydrating, soft texture to the lips while simultaneously providing a subtle shine and color, making it perfect for during the day when you don’t want to be too bold but still want to express yourself.
If you want tons of shine and awesome color… Try Elizabeth Arden Sunkissed Pearls Lip Gloss Trio ($24). In pink, coral, and berry hues, these glosses are perfect for summer. The proprietary ingredient, Maxi-Lip, helps support natural collagen production for plumper and fuller lips and all three of the glosses provide tons of shine and gorgeous color.
If you like two-in-one’s…. We’re loving Sigma Lip Base ($12). Doubling as a lip liner and color, this lip base is perfect on its own or as a base to enhance any color you put on top of it!
If you want something casual… Try Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter ($14). While the packaging is far from casual, the super hydrating lip butter is perfect for during the day. Argan oil, grape seed oil, sweet almond oil, and shea butter combine for a major punch of hydration and conditioning. And with a slight hint of color, this is the perfect product to wear with a messy bun.
