Summer is right around the corner and if you are like me, you tend to keep your makeup really light so it doesn't all come off your face in a sweaty oily mess. In the summer I tend to use mascara, a bit of concealer and a lip balm or gloss. So I thought I would give you some of my favorite lip treatment suggestions for keeping those lips hydrated and beautiful in the summer heat!
For those of you who use an SPF lip balm, that is great. Most of us do not. But remember, you will need to reapply that lip balm about every 20 mins or so! So without further ado, here are some of my favs of all time. Both beautiful and good for your lips!
My absolute favorite of the group is RODIN Lip Balm. It is a bit pricey, but totally worth it! Oh and did I mention this comes in ring form so you have easy access to it all day long?!?!
Now that RODIN olio lusso has successfully made your skin as supple and smooth as it can possibly be, it can work the same magic on your lips! Linda Rodin, New York Fashion Stylist and Beauty Entrepreneur, has done it again by incorporating her famous floral scent in a delightfully moisturizing, all natural, sheer lip balm. The blush colored balm combines jasmine, orange flower oil, shea butter, beeswax, and castor seed oil. Packaged beautifully in a chic lucite square compact, this lip balm is perfect for your pocket or purse!
I love that VS PRO Lip Scrub & Balm is a two in one kind of deal! Great for exfoliating and for hydrating!
Pro Smooth FX Lip Scrub & Balm
In front of the camera. On the runway and off, VS PRO keeps our Supermodels camera ready.
Give your lips the V.I.P. treatment. Exfoliates and conditions to remove dry skin, leaving soft, smooth, kissable lips. To ensure a perfect pout, our pros always prep lips with this sugar scrub and moisture- rich balm before applying color.
Being a self professed MAC junkie, this has to be one of my favorite products that they offer. Goes on like silk and makes your lips feel so good!
MAC Lip Conditioner (TUBE)
An emollient balm aimed at maxing-out repair by conditioning lips, locking in moisture. Contains Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Avocado Extract, Wheat Germ Oil, vitamins A and E. Formulated for high impact to use alone or under lipstick. Petroleum-based, but not goopy, helps seal in moisture to protect the lips from the environment.
I love NARS. I truly love how easy it goes on. One downside, there are only a few shades, but there is a clear too, so that helps.
Lip Lacquer Nars
Full-bodied texture and stay-in-place wear in NARS signature shades. Lips look luscious in shades for day or night in hues that are perfect alone or for pairing with other products.
Unique texture prevents color from bleeding
Includes Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Avocado Oil, Sesame Seed Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil
So whether you are looking for full on lip color, or you just want something to smooth you out, these four amazing products should be on your list of things to check out! Remember, take care of your skin this summer. Looking tan is great, but looking like a 50 year old handbag when you are only 35 is not. =)
