While I don’t take special care of my lips, I’m quite a lip balm addict. I don’t think I’ve ever finished using a tube though as I always have a handful on rotation and even before I’m done with any of them, I will usually add new ones to my collection. So what is it about lip balm that appeals to me? Well, I can’t quite put my lips to it but I just know I can do without lipsticks but I can’t do without a lip balm. Anyway, I wanted to show you some of the lip balms that are on current rotation. They are either stashed in my bag or strewn on my desk.
While I use my lips a lot, I don’t really take special care of them. Apart from some occasional scrubbing, daily applying of lip balm and lipstick, I don’t use anything else on my lips. Heck, I don’t even use a lip product with SPF! So the last thing I’d expected to receive in my mail was this Marie Veronique Organics Pacific Lip Treatment, a brand new product just launched barely a week ago. To be honest, it didn’t excite me much because like I said, lip care is really not on my agenda. But I was curious anyway and wanted to see for myself if a natural formulation can actually plump up my lips.
Some girls will probably squeal with delight at the sight of these cute egg-shaped Smooth Sphere Lip Balms from Evolution of Smooth or EOS in short. I think they’re cute and make great eye candies. They’ve been around for a few years now and come in eight natural flavors—Blueberry Acai, Pomegranate Raspberry, Summer Fruit, Sweet Mint, Honeysuckle Honeydew, Strawberry Sorbet, Medicated Tangerine and Lemon Drop with SPF 15.
Here’s an insight into my makeup habit: I can use a lipstick like forever. Which means, I rarely buy new ones. I’m quite contented with using the same color every day. Is that boring? I suppose but I don’t really care. I used to buy and own more of them but over the years, I’ve lost interest in lipsticks. I realized that they’re quite a waste of money for me because I usually just end up using the one I like and then leaving the rest to collect dust. Anyway, I told you all of that so you’ll not be too surprised when I tell you that this Ecco Bella FlowerColor Lipstick in Pink Rose is the first lipstick I’ve bought this year.
