Am I A Crazy Lip Balm Addict?
I recently checked my beauty case and I couldn’t help asking myself:
“Am I A Crazy Lip Balm Addict?”
The answer is probably yes and you might want to become one yourself too after reading this article.
Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing more feminine (and more addictive) than a brand new red lipstick. When I have money to invest in makeup, first things I always check are the new red lipsticks released by my favourite beauty brands.
However, aided by the fact that A/C is a serious problem in Middle East and my lips tends to become very dry, I started collecting and testing a several bunch of lip balms, discovering that they are more than a simple treatment for your lips. Lip balms can easily replace any other lipsticks. I’m actually slowly giving up to wear heavy lipsticks during the day in favour of light and shiny lip balms. They moisturise my lips adding, at the same time, a sheer touch of colour.
If you also don’t like feeling your lips in any other way but moisturised, you are ready to join the lip balm fan club.
My Favourite Lip Balms
1. Rimmel “Kate” Lip Balm & Lancome Apri-cute Juicy Shaker
Rimmel “Kate” Lip balm 01 CLEAR shade works great when applied alone. However I love using this lip balm as a base before to apply any lipstick. As I said, I have dry lips. It’s a challenge to make lipstick lasting. Rimmel Lip Balm helps me to keep my lips hydrated longer. Lancome Apri-cute Juicy Shaker is not really a lip balm, but in this apricot shade, it just adds a little bit of colour to my lips without being too heavy. And lips are moisturised for all the time.
2. Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil Honey / Raspberry / Red Berry
I consider these three lip balms like a real treatment for my lips. I actually call them my luxurious lip treatment! I apply the lip balm multiple time a day because as soon as the oil touches the lips it gives an immediate feeling of hydration. I have them in three finishes, Honey 01, Raspberry 02 and Red Berry 03. Don’t be fooled by the colour of the stick, Clarins Lip Balms give a very very light tint to your lips, nothing more.
3. Dior Lip Glow Reviver Balms & Dior Lip Maximizer
I spoke about these Dior products before on my Instagram and, again, I can’t add anything more than how much I love them! Dior released Dior Addict Lip Glow 001 for first but then it introduced new colours. On December 6th new versions have been released by the brand. These must be tried. Main reason why I love Dior Addict collection is that fact that the lipstick emphasized your natural lip’s color. So the result changes from one person to another.
Last but not least, Dior Lip Maximizer gives a real boost for your lips. The Collagene Active factor works and works well. You feel it! I don’t abuse of this product (but you can wear daily with no problems) but once in a month I switch to Dior Lip Maximizer for at least 5-7 days.

I'm a self-proclaimed lip balm addict, too! It's hot and humid where I live but my lips aren't any better here than when I spend winter season in other countries. I read somewhere that it's not good to let your lips be "addicted" to lip balm but I just CANNOT live without them!
I have to have a few lip balms with me at all times, which is why I usually buy drugstore ones (ps: never tried any of the ones you listed, they all look so sweet!). You're right about not all lip balms being the same - some are good and some are sadly not "balmy" at all -
but I too love the ones than can replace regular lipsticks!

I seriously needed this post! My lip condition has been all over the place this winter and I've been experimenting with lip balms as well. I never thought about a lip oil so those Clarin ones are something I'll need to check out! I also have the Dior one but I misplaced it and I remember it being a great one as well!
