I don't know about you, but I have to have something on my lips during the day, no matter what I'm doing. Nothing is worse than licking your lips, realizing you need a little moisture, and not being able to find any lipstuff in your bag/car/pockets. Frantic searching ensues, and then you resign to just nabbing whatever they have in the grocery store check-out line. Over the years, I've purchased my fair share of emergency lip things, and these are my tried and true favorites for everyday lip moisture - small enough to fit in your pocket but potent enough to ward away constant lip-licking and a chapped, flaky pout. Happy smiling!
1 // Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balm
soft, sheer moisture with a pop of light color
2 // Minted Rose Lip Balm
a very hydrating formula that smells amazing (and it doesn't hurt that it comes in this lovely tin as well)
3 // Vaseline
my favorite tool for chapped lips, dry nose, or dry cuticles.
4 // EOS Lip Balm in Lemon Drop with SPF 15
easy to find in your purse because of the fun and unusual shape, smells amazing, with SPF - no more burnt lips!
5 // Benetint Rose Tinted Lip Stain
I put this on in the morning for a deeper hint of lip color, and top it off with another essential - like the C.O. Bigelow Mentha
6 // Hoola Ultra Plush Shimmering Lip Gloss
when you're looking for more of a glossy look, this nude color is so flattering and subtle
7 // C.O. Bigelow Mentha Ultra Lip Shine
smells amazing, feels amazing, looks like MAC's Lipglass at a fraction of the cost
