Tag: best lip balm
Although, I think, my favourite lip balms are liquid, like this Rouge Bunny Rouge Lip Elixir which I adore, I still like a good ol’ lip balm.
But it has to be very soft and moisturizing, I hate dry and hard lip balms! When I think of a good one, Fresh Sugar comes to mind, as it is soft, as butter!
And today I want to tell you about L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm. And it is actually a nice one. I have been carrying (and using, obviously) it in my bag for several weeks now.
Luckily, my lips are in a (relatively, they are still dry) good condition now, so I can’t report on how it deals with the cracks/very dried out lips.
But I can definitely see that
My lips are very dry and in winter they are usually in horrible condition as I sometimes forget to put the lip balm on and even if I do, sometimes it is not effective enough.
It was my Birthday on the 6th of March and I really wanted to wear a dark matte lipstick which is a disaster when your lips are not in perfect condition, as you can imagine.
This is why I was excited to try Kiss Elixir lip balm by Rouge Bunny Rouge.
To tell the truth I wasn’t expecting any miracles. But I was more than happy to see one! My dry, chapped and sometimes even bleeding lips became smooth, soft and, well, perfect. I could not believe my eyes. I could apply the dark matte lipstick and it look great, can you imagine?
How does it work?
Now my aim was not to tell you the winner in each nomination. Like best lipstick/gloss/liner etc. I just wanted to mention the products that really impressed me this year. So this is why you have 4 lipsticks, lip gloss and a balm.
Here we go…
Hourglass Femme Rouge Lipstick (luxury)
Now this is the best lipstick that I’ve tried in a long time. It seems that it’s impossible not to like it! I know that so many of you are waiting for a review, so stay tuned for it in 2011 to find out why I like it so much.
Revlon Matte Lipstick
I love matte lipsticks, I really do. And I find that these lipsticks by Revlon are pretty amazing especially for the price. Just make sure that your lips are in a nice condition before you use this or any other matte lipstick. To tell the truth, I wouldn’t mind having the whole range.

Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick
Yet another matte and affordable lipstick. I’ve got myself 3 shades and I adore them all. This lipstick is super pigmented and stays on for a very long time, the price is also a bonus. I wish they had the other design but that’s not the most important thing really.
Inglot Gel Lipstick
These lipsticks are amazing, the gel texture is brilliant, it’s quite
