What Lip Balm Are You Wearing Right Now?

Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset

It wasn’t until I started pulling balms for this post (out of every bag, pocket, drawer . . .) that I realized I might have a problem. Scratch that. Let’s just say I’m a patron of the lip balm. I appreciate their dainty size, sweet packaging, and apparently the simple pleasure of applying a different one every day. Of course there’s also the practical side of things. The dryness inside and out has reached critical mass here in the midwest. These are the pots and sticks that are keeping my lips happy, but more curious about what you’ve been swiping on yours of late?

(clockwise) Fresh Sugar Petal and Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 give lips just a hint of color that looks good on everyone. // Sara Happ The Lip Slip is my go-to gloss and makes the best gift! // RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek is the ultimate all-natural multitasker. // Rodin Lip Balm in packaged in a luxe lucite box. Enough said. // Eve Lom Kiss Mix has a hint of mint and goes on nice and shiny. // Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm is French, so there’s that. // By Terry Baume De Rose: for when you want to splurge ($60!) and feel like a celeb. // MOR Lip Macaroon tins make any desk or nightstand look fancier. // W3LL People Nudist Lip Sheers are made for makeup minimalists and lovers alike. // Kari Gran Lip Whips feel like butter and smell even better. Obsessed. // Osmia Organics Honey Myrrh Lip Repair always make me feel like I’m doing something good for my lips. Because I am!
