Y’all, I have the driest, most chapped lips ever. If I’m not constantly putting on product then they will get super dry and I’ll pick at them or bite at them until they bleed. It’s horrible. With that said, I want to talk about my favorite lip products today and what all I use to keep my lips from getting dry and chapped. 

Let’s dive right into it. 

Exfoliation. Everyone knows you need to exfoliate your skin, but NOT everyone knows you need to exfoliate your lips also. Your lips will get dry and chapped and then that dead, chapped skin will linger and then you start picking at the dead skin and then all of a sudden your lips are bleeding. So that’s why we exfoliate our lips. Exfoliating your lips also helps to plump them, giving you fuller lips! 

I really like the Tarte Pout Prep lip exfoliant. I use it in the mornings when I do my morning skincare routine and/or when I’m going out right before I put my lipstick on. It just helps smooth out your lips so the lipstick goes on smoother and doesn’t clump as easily. I rub the Pout Prep in a circular motion on my lips. Little balls {of dead skin} will form and then I rinse it off with warm water. 

Another one of my favorite lip products is the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream nourishing lip balm. I apply this FIRST thing in the morning and then all throughout the day. It also has SPF 20 in it. I use it as a chapstick all day or I’ll put it on under a lip gloss or lipstick. But it really keeps the lips hydrated. Probably my favorite day product for chapped lips! 

I also love the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask when my lips are extra dry and chapped. I don’t use it as a sleeping mask, but instead I use it all day as a chapstick/lip gloss for a lot of extra hydration. It’s like pouring olive oil on your lips. Plus this makes them a little more plumped and pouty. This stuff is legit! 

At night, I use the Bite Agave Lip Mask to sleep in. I wake up in the morning with perfect, plumped lips and feel like a goddess. This is definitely the most hydrating lip product that I have ever used. I wouldn’t use it during the day unless you have extremely dry, chapped, painful lips. It’s not a chapstick/lip gloss texture. It’s more like a paste. The Bite Agave Lip Mask is also great if you’re really sick or if you have any kind of dental work done or surgery. You know when you have to breathe out of your mouth and can’t really lick your lips and they get super dry and disgusting? That would be the perfect time to use this lip mask. Just have your husband, mom, roommate, whoever rub it on your lips for you, haha. 

Now let’s talk about my favorite cosmetic lip products.

My favorite plumping lip gloss is the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer. I use the 013 Beige but I also like the 001 Light Pink but it sells out quickly. The Dior Addict also has hyaluronic acid in it so it helps keep the lips looking youthful while plumping and giving a good glossy pout look. I use this during the day as my “everyday gloss” look. 

My favorite lip color is the Charlotte Tilbury “Pillow Talk”. It’s the perfect matte nude lipstick and can transition from day to night easily. It’s not too extreme to wear to work, but it can also be dressed up to go out with friends on a Friday night. It also comes in a matte liquid lipstick, which I also use. The liquid lipstick lasts a little longer than the regular lipstick but it’s mostly just personal preference. I bought the whole Pillow Talk set from the NSale last year so I interchange them both daily. 

And last but not least on my favorite lip products list, is my favorite long-lasting matte liquid lipstick: The Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit. My absolute favorite color/shade is Koko K. It’s the perfect pink nude and looks great with any color outfit. I use the Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits for events and special occasions. Weddings, showers, holidays, birthday dinners, when I want to look like a smokeshow when I go out to the bars or a party. Pretty much whenever I want to look my best, I’ll use the Lip Kits. I use Koko K in the spring, summer, fall because it is a lighter pink and I’ll use Posie K (my second favorite) during the winter because it’s a hair darker than the Koko K. Plus they come with the lip liners so I can overdraw my lips and make them look more full and pouty. 

So let’s sum this all up for those who live by the TL;DR lifestyle.

Hydration & Chapped Lips:

  • Tarte Pout Prep – lip exfoliant to remove dead skin and plump
  • Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Nourishing Lip Balm – super hydrating for when you are focused on healing your lips
  • Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – I don’t actually use this as a sleeping mask. Use this for when you want extreme hydration but also a daytime glossy look
  • Bite Agave Lip Mask – THIS is the sleeping mask. This will heal your lips overnight. Also use when you are sick or have mouth/nose surgery. I’m telling you, it will heal the cracked dried-up lake desert ground. 

Lip Color:

I hope this post finds you and your lips well. Gotta keep that mouth hydrated, ya know?
