winter lip necessities

My lips feeeeel the cold. This time last year I remember I was wearing liquid lipsticks almost every single
day, now I cannot wear a liquid lipstick without regretting it for the following few days. I don’t know
what’s changed but currently, my lips are like the sahara.

Due to this issue I’ve been trying lots of different products, and right now these are my absolute
saviours. The cream of the crop, the créme de la créme.

First we’ve got a classic, Glossier’s Balm Dot Com. A staple in my life and will remain one for eternity.
I’ve tried almost every flavour, and my favourite right now is mint. It’s such a calming feel on the lips
without stinging and irritating. You also cannot go wrong with the original, and the tinted ones are nice
on occasion if you want to spice up your look. If you’re considering purchasing these, which you
absolutely should be, definitely purchase them in the trio as it’s cost effective.

Next we have something slightly more intense than your everyday lip balm. A lip mask. This Laneige
mask received a lot of hype when it was released, and being a clone in this materialistic society of course
I purchased it. I’m not going to lie, the best part of this product is the mini lip spatula that comes with it.
But seriously, this product is great. I put it on before I go to sleep, and let me tell you - she is thiiiiiiiick.
It doesn’t sink in over night so I usually wipe it off after cleansing my face with micellar water in the
morning and all of my stunning dead skin gets wipes off with it.

If your lips are flakey a scrub is necessary. I love the Jeffree Star ones because they smell and taste,
yes taste, soooo yummy. The packaging isn’t really fitting with my current aesthetic so I’m not sure
if I would repurchase it, but I have really been enjoying it as of late.

Finally we have the Dior Lip Glow. These were all over my favourite influencers content which fuelled
my shopping addiction, but with my lips being so dry I was hardly able to wear any of my regular
lipsticks, let alone liquid lips, so I decided to treat myself to this beauty. I am absolutely obsessed.
It is so unique. It’s the perfect amount of pigmentation. Just the right amount of glossy. Gives
amazing hydration and also acts as a subtle stain which I LOVE. The packaging is to die for, and
I’m not going to lie and say I’m not considering buying more colours…

So far these products have been getting me through the cold winter, but I will keep you updated on
my journey to a smooth pout.
