I realized the other day that I'm not just wearing lip balm when I'm not wearing lip colour. Instead, as we head into chillier months, I'm consciously preparing my lips with my favourite dry lips dream team for the next time I wear bold or matte lipstick, whenever that might be.
fave dry lip treatments
To carry off the bright colour and/or matte finishes I love, lips need to be as smooth and as hydrated as possible. So I layer a couple of products that together I now call my Dry Lips Dream Team:
Fresh Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy ($41 at sephora.ca and $35 at sephora.com). Dry lips love an immediate infusion of moisture before you slap on a balm; a tiny dot of this serum makes parched lips sigh in relief and happiness.
Bite Agave Lip Mask in Champagne Pearl ($30 at sephora.ca and $26 at sephora.com). This natural, sticky-at-first salve prevents moisture from evaporating from your lips. The Champagne Pearl shade is lovely; whenever I wear it, someone inevitably says, "Ooh, what's that on your lips? Pretty!" And note: you only need the tiniest bit, so one tube will last you ages.
