As a continuation segment from my original searching for an HG pencil liner, lip balms, and just about any beauty product have a long standing list with me as being both necessary and worth the search
Today's topic: Lip balms
Are all lip balms created equal? no way! But with price variances ranging from .69 cents to $60 dollars the range is huge, so here is a little abridged guide to some of the ones from my past
I too, have fallen for the trap of cheaper convenience lip balms (which I love!) and the draw of higher end lip balms for those interested in that market.
Here are my thoughts on some of the stand out's I have tried (Good and Bad)
MAC Tinted Lip Conditioners: I like these! Ok those who hate pot forms wont, but I like the subtle amount of color, spf factor, and the tub will last you quite a while. It also smells like vanilla which I don't love but its not over bearing, it's also smooth and easy to apply! They also sometimes come out with nice Limited Edition ( of course) shades
Bon belle Lip Smackers in Dr. Pepper: This product has sentimental value so I may be biased but I love the smell, the slight red tint, the smoothness, along with the price. Been buying this since I was 13 and will never stop!
Blistex Silk and Shine: Waxy, I thought all blistex was wonderful till I tried this one. They are all not created equal. At least it has SPF.
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream: A celeb favorite. I got mine at Marshalls by the way…this like the By Terry, I apply at night and feel it the next day, except I personally think this is more hydrating. I also think it looks and feels like honey, but smells like a plastic factory.
If I were to repurchase one of these two, it would be the 8 hour cream, I have a huge tube instead of the jar so this is going to last me eons, but I would repurchase this. Not HG, but a nice night treatment.
So tell me
What's your favorite?
