How To Get Rid Of Dry Lips

If you suffer from dry lips then you know how much of a struggle it is to get them moisturized and plump on a daily basis! So, today I am going to share some of my favorite tips on how to take care of your lips and possibly prevent chapped lips in the future! Don't forget to share some of your favorite tips with me in the comments :)

 

Sugar lip scrub

Literally, walk into your kitchen right now and grab some sugar, rub on your lips, and watch the dead skin flake off, then apply some coconut oil or a really thick lip balm treatment like bite beauty's agave lip mask. 

 

Brush it off

Grab an old toothbrush and massage your lips going in circular motion. This will remove all of the dry skin off your lips and plump them up by bringing blood to the surface.

 

Use a lip mask

Try to use a lip mask every night before going to bed. You can apply something like bite beauty's agave lip mask or some coconut oil, leave it overnight, wake up with soft lips! Or you can use something fun like The Face Shop Lip Gel Patch.

Use lip products with moisturizing factors

If you wear lipsticks on the daily then try using some with moisturizing factors like Revlon's Ultra HD Gel Lip Color Or use tinted lip balms like Dior's Color Reviver Balm. Try to avoid any old lip products as well. 

 

Avoid super hot showers

For some reason when I shower with hot water my lips tend to dry up. So, if thats the case with you then try to avoid super hot showers as possible! 

 

Stay Hydrated

We all should know this by now! Water is your body and skin's best friend so, drink it up yo! Drinking water will keep your body hydrated therefore keeping your lips plump!

 

Humidifier

Use a humidifier in your bedroom (or any room you spend a lot of time in) to keep the air moist and prevent dry lips and skin.

Revlon Ultra HD Gel LipColor In Desert

I am always on the hunt for the next best hydrating lippie! My lips are dry 99% of the time and I tend to mostly use lip products that will be hydrating and not dry out the lips! When I came across these Revlon Gel LipColors I decided to give the color 'Desert' a try. 

 

THE DETAILS :

Packaging: I love the metallic and sleek look of the barrels! This one in particular is more of a rose gold color and I am obsessed! The barrel holds 0.17 of product, the name of the lip color is found on the bottom and it's a twist up. The barrel itself is very slim and will fit in your purse or clutch. 

Color: It's a "my lips but better" shade for me and it gives my lips a pretty shine without looking overly glossy. 

Shop 'my face' below! On the eyes I am wearing Maybelline's Powder in Pure Beige for eyeshadow (and as bronzer), L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara (great mascara for length), Covergirl's Healthy Elixir Foundation, and of course Revlon's HD Gel Lip Color in Desert.&nbsp;

Scent: It is a sweet scent that reminds me of fruit roll ups haha! They smell soooo good you almost just wanna take a bite!!! hahahaha! 

Application: The product goes on super smooth and there is definite color pay off. One swipe over the lips and done! It feels very hydrating as well and its light on the lips so you won't feel like you've caked on a bunch of lip product nor does it leave a tacky feeling.

Wear: I put it on in the morning around 9 and by lunch time (after eating and drinking) It had started to wear off. You can easily reapply throughout the day without it clumping on the lips. Also, your lips will feel so hydrated for the whole day! 

 

I have been wearing this color on and off for the past few weeks and can't get enough! I am definitely going back for more colors.

Have you tried these yet? If so, what's your favorite shade?

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Lips

I noticed these little guys around the internet and decided to pick some up for myself. Everyone was raving about them so I really wanted to try them. I live in a smaller town in Texas and products seem to come to our stores last haha! So, when they came to our local Walgreens they, of course, flew off the shelves. I had my eyes set on Loyalist and Dreamer. I want to try a bold color but can't decide on which one I would wear the most (I don't like to buy bright colors and only wear them once or twice, I like to get my money's worth lol). I was only able to get my hands on loyalist this time so, keep reading to find out if I would go back for more! :)

MY THOUGHTS

Color: Let me start off with how BEAUTIFUL this color is. It is the perfect nude-y pink shade that goes great with pale skin! Like seriously the best nude lip color I own!

Packaging: I am loving the sleek matte look these have. Super clean and clear. I like how the outside shows the color but without seeing the product. And yes, it is true to color!

Application: The wand picks up the perfect amount and the product just glides over the lips without streaks. The wand has a pointy tip perfect to line the lips with. I don't get product on the outside of my lips like I normally do. The formula is just so buttery and sits right onto the lips.

Smell: The smell is not over whelming but it is a sweet cupcake-y smell so, if you're sensitive to smells you may not like this lip product

The Bad: The only downfall this lip product has is that after a few minutes of applying the formula gets tacky on the lips. But, honestly it only lasts about five minutes and you don't have to worry about that feeling for the rest of the day, literally!!

Wear: The name says it all! It is seriously like ink on your lips! This will stay on all day long. I apply this in the morning before work. Eat, drink, wipe my mouth, and by the time I get home I will still have a bit of the product left. Seriously, the best liquid matte lip ever!

Price: You can get them at Walgreens or Ulta for $9.49

I definitely want to try more shades and hope they come out with more! I loved it so much! Have you tried these yet? What are your thoughts? Fave color(s)?
