Labor Day fashion to...lip balm! I like lip balm. A lot. Some might even say that I like it a bit too much -- Ms. Bear, I'm looking at you! I like the scented and un-scented kind, the flavored kind, the kind with tiny specks of glitter in it and the kind that leaves a kiss of color on your lips. I'm a big fan of those lip balms that do double duty -- you know, the ones that are fun and give your lips a kick of smoothness and moisture.
Yes, I'm a veritable connoisseur when it comes to all things lip balm, as evidenced by my "Arm of Many Colors" photo, above, that I posted on Instagram a couple months ago. Still don't believe me? Well, feast your eyes on my six tried-and true picks...
Maybelline Baby Lips (Oh! Orange!) for a warm wash of color and long-lasting moisture, $4.47
*Nivea Fruity Shine Strawberry for a sweet swipe-and-go look, $5.98
*Cover Girl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm (Haute Pink Twist) for a creamy, put-together finish, $9.60
*Revlon Lip Butter (Candy Apple) if you want a lipstick look without going all the way
*L'Oreal Colour Riche Lip Balm (Pink Satin) leaves your lips with a glossy shine without the stickiness lip gloss, $4.55
*Lip Smacker (Coca-Cola Collection) because everyone needs a bit of childhood nostalgia every now and then, $11.03
What lip balms would you add, friends? Which ones do you swear by? Any favorites you're using today? I'm always looking to expand my ever-growing collection, so be sure to leave me your picks in the comments! xoxo
