Luscious, moisturized, soft lips… Sound mouth-watering?
There are many things we can’t live without, but might have to in time. Perhaps we can’t live without chocolate and a doctor tells us that for health reasons we have to stay away from it, and this, is really tough to give up. As most things we love and enjoy are.
However, I have never heard a doctor tell anyone to stay away from any form of lip moisturizer or balm. In fact, lip balm is necessary when our lips get chapped and we need to moisturize them to keep them from cracking or flaking. I find regular chap-stick boring, some are colorless and odorless which might work for those with allergies, but I rather enjoy a pop of color and a tinge of scent.
I love lip anything: lipstick, lip balms, tints, you name it. You won’t catch me without at least one of these. So I am always trying out brands, colors and different textures.
Just tried another winner: Clinique’s 8 new vibrant Chubby stick moisturizing lip color balm. The colors are mouth-watering, reminding me of spring and summer fruits:
Heaping Hazelnut, Bountiful Blush, Two Ton Tomato, Oversized Orange, Mighty Mimosa, Curvy Candy, Pudgy Peony and Voluptuous Violet.
What I like: It’s a soft sleek crayon, thus making it easier and more precise to apply. Soft and buttery. It does moisturize and lasts for hours. The colors are very soft and supple. Perfect for day time, the beach or any out-door activity. It glides on and is as easy to carry as a pen! It comes in a retractable barrel. This chubby stick will last longer than regular lip balm since it is much larger, making it a better investment. It’s odorless but this is not a drawback for me.
Major ingredients: blend of butters, oils and antioxidants: Shea butter, Mango seed butter and jojoba seed oil. Allergy Tested. 100% Fragrance Free.
