Recently, liquid lipsticks have been stealing the spotlight- and for obvious reasons. From their magical long lasting formula’s to the hundreds of shades (and brands) available to choose from, what’s not to love? The one downfall however, is the drying and dehydrating effect they have on your lips.
To prevent drying out, I’d suggest priming your lips with a moisturizing lip balm. Exfoliating your lips in between uses is also extremely helpful. For a cheaper alternative, try Vaseline (which is somewhat of a miracle worker) or a homemade exfoliator (recipe below). Here are some of my favourites:
Coconut lip Sorbet: Forever New
Born Lippy: The Body Shop
Homemade Exfoliator: Combine sugar, honey and olive oil. Massage onto lips and enjoy the smoothness!
