If you read my 8 non sticky lip glosses that are worth the splurge then you know that matte lips and I have sort of been– as Ross would put it– ON A BREAK.
I feel like I’ll occasionally rock a matte lip since we’re heading towards fall (ignoring the fact that it’s 91 degrees right now LOL). Let’s be honest– matte lips were my first love. Still, I’m digging hydrating and moisturizing lip products at the moment. And, I don’t see that changing anytime soon!
6 Moisturizing Lip Products Worth the Splurge
I have been loving the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask for taking care of my lips and keeping them moisturized at night. As you can tell from how used and abused my tube looks, I really like it. But, it wasn’t always love at first swipe. I actually hated this lip balm when I first got it. It was hard to get out of the tube (FYI rub it between your hands during the winter to warm the product up), and it is really thick and sticky. But, I have gotten used to it and like it now. It really does moisturize the lips sans any nasty petrolatum-esque ingredients.
When it comes to lipstick, I reach for either the YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick lipstick or the Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil Balm. Both contain oils so they’re very moisturizing on the lips. Don’t be fooled by the Bare Minerals one. It is very pigmented even though it says it’s a balm.
Another YSL lip product that is really moisturizing is their Oil-in-Tint. It’s basically a tint submerged in oils so it’s super conditioning to the lips. The Jouer lip glosses are also very conditioning and moisturizing since they contain oils like sunflower seed and castor seed to name a few. I like to keep one of their glosses with me at all times in case my lips feel dry throughout the day.
The Clarins Lip Perfectors are some cult status lip glosses that aren’t very pigmented, but are very moisturizing. I don’t like the fact that these contain mineral oil (you can read all about why I hate Vaseline/petroleum jelly based lip products here), but they do contain shea butter so it’s very comfortable and keep the lips moisturized.
