While it is hardly cold in Mumbai, my skin has started to show inexplicable dryness and so have my lips! This means an overload of lip balms – on my desk, in my purse, on my dresser, at my bedside and in my grocery bag too!
Here are my current favorite lip balms ~
1. Kiehls #1 Lip balm (Rs 500)
I absolute LOVE this lip balm. It instantly moisturizes and softens the lips no matter how parched they are. It doesn’t dry on my lips overnight and I wake up to soft luscious lips. Read my full review HERE.
2. Nivea Fruity Shine Pomegranate (Rs 129)
I love tinted lip balms and the Nivea ones are hands down my favorite! These give a noticeable amount of color along with a good dose of moisture (and they smell delicious as well!). When I first started wearing makeup, this is what I would wear everyday to my classes along with some kohl and compact powder! I also like the Strawberry one!
3. Maybelline Color Bloom Peach Blossom (Rs 199)
Maybelline makes pretty lip balms and this color changing one is really nice! It is decently moisturizing and applies clear on the lips but the color deepens to a peachy pink in a few minutes – great for the no-makeup days!
4. Nivea Repair and Beauty Lip Balm (Rs 149)
This was a recent impulse purchase but I quite like it because of its decent moisturization. What attracted me to this was the ‘tinted’ part which is actually a little misleading. It has a very pale pink color which washes me out completely but it feels buttery on the lips so I use this at bedtime mostly.
5. Maybelline Baby lips – Mango Pie (Rs 129)
These are a rage ever since they launched in India! This one is non-tinted and has good moisturization (not superb) – its the flavor that I really like and the packaging is super cute as well! It also has SPF 20. I’m going to pick a tinted one next!
