How is it even possible that we never have enough lip product? As I type, there are two on my desk, one in my pencil cup and another poking out of my inbox.
There’s nothing we’re more obsessed with than keeping our lips soft and smooth and the perfect shade, too. This obsession started early with Susie Chapstick and Yardley Slicker, progressed to Carmex and reached a crescendo when we discovered Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream. The habit seems to be here to stay, and the last time we checked, we had no less than 8 lip treatments in our handbag. It doesn’t matter if they’re lip glosses, balms, or moisturizing lipsticks. We’ve tried them all–in a relentless pursuit of the perfectly moisturized pucker.
Luckily, we’ve found–and tested–a number of products we love, products that are so good, we lie when people ask if we have any lip balm. “No,” we say like a crazy person, deathly afraid of losing even one tube, making grand theater of digging around in our totes. “We’re so sorry, we must’ve left it in our other bag.” So here you go, for friends, like me, who never have enough lip balm. This one’s for you.
