BEAUTY resolutions: 7 TREATS to enhance your PUCKER
get LIP obsessed for a few good reasons. soft, smooth, kissable lips are always trending, especially if you’re fishing for some V-DAY attention. a good LIP habitduring the windy + chilly months can skip the irritation altogether.
if you’re like me and tend to collect lip balms, you have good reasons for having a tube in your make-up bag, the outside pocket of your bag, in your coat pocket, on your desk, and next to your bed for convenient maintenance. I love the fact that it’s acceptable to apply BALM just about anywhere, even on the train… and if you miss, it’s not like ‘ooh, the LIPSTICK outside the lips’ error. i like to put on the balm and then dab a little lipstick discreetly with fingertips, even without a mirror, in PUBLIC.. people just think you’re checking the chapstick. by brigitte segura | FashionDailyMag : beauty in LUXchic..
the GO-TO for better lips, here are our top 7 LIP BALM picks for 2012 to hydrate, avoid irriration, plump, smooth, and shine a little, anytime. most of are priced under $20, and these are all keepers… BEAUTY resolutions: VOL 3 TREATS to enhance your PUCKER
