Moisturise, plump and tint your lips with our favourite luscious lip products for Spring.
Much like a tampon, a versatile pair of sunnies and hand sanitiser (thank you 2020), lip products have become a crucial hand-bag staple.
The fear of reaching into your bag and fumbling around for a lip balm that doesn’t exist is a universal nightmare, especially if you suffer from chapped lips at this time of year.
One of our favourite lip-saviours of the year is the Peggy Sue Lip Conditioner RRP $16.
Aside from the highly-aesthetic bamboo twist-tube packaging, we love this lip balm for its organic blend of nutrient-rich ingredients that soothe and nourish dry lips.
Some of these lip-loving ingredients include, beeswax, coconut oil and shea butter which work together to protect, heal and hydrate chapped lips.
A little bit goes a long way, so you will only have to apply this product every few hours, leaving your lips feeling softer than ever.
Peggy Sue also do a fabulous Silk Lip Kit RRP $36 which features the beautiful lip conditioner balm and their lip exfoliant. Exfoliate dead flaky skin from the lips and then finish with the conditioner, for luscious and oily smooth spring lips.
For intensive moisture restoration, we recommend the DU’IT Tough Lips lip balm RRP $5.95 which launched earlier this year.
The non-greasy formula is perfect for relieving dry lips as it harnesses the healing properties of its hero ingredients; grapeseed extract, shea butter, beeswax and vitamin E.
This lip balm is the perfect recovery product for chronically chapped lips that are in need of some extra TLC around the colder months.
If you are looking to upgrade your clear lip gloss, the Skinn Luminous Skin Lip Oil is the way to go RRP $28.
The star ingredient of this lip treatment is Manuka honey which is rich in antioxidants and thus a superfood for dry lips.
Other key ingredients include vitamin C, vitamin E and rice, rosemary and sunflower extracts for a impressively nourishing, all-natural base.
With a large doe-foot applicator, the oil applies lightly on the lips.
It is non-sticky and leaves a glossy coat with a subtle shine.
This lip oil lends itself as a stand-alone product as well as the perfect top coat when paired with a lip colour of your choice.
Piggybacking off the return of 90s fashion, glossy lips have started to make a huge comeback as well.
From the lip gurus themselves, we adore using the Burt’s Bees Glossy Lipstick RRP $19.95.
This lipstick is the perfect pick if you are looking for a muted pigmentation with a more shimmery finish.
This product will subtly enhance your normal lip colour to upkeep a more natural makeup look.
The formula also has several moisturising agents including red raspberry oil, moringa oil and meadowfoam seed oil, to keep the lips nourished throughout the day.
A standard application of this product will give you a light to medium coverage.
For ageing lips that are in need of instant rejuvenation try the Ciencia Lip Correct 8 RRP $79.95.
This powerful product works to reduce signs of wrinkles and inflammation around the mouth area.
Harnessing active ingredients including the beauty buzz-word of 2020, hyaluronic acid, this lip serum will help replenish and redefine the appearance of dull lips.
The product comes in unique packaging with a click-pump at the bottom and a roll ball applicator.
Not only will this formula work to plump your lips but hydrate them as well.
This product can be used day and night.
If you find that lipstick is too bold and lip gloss is too basic, let us introduce you to the perfect middle ground of all lip products – lip tints.
Our favourite lip tints right now are the Innisfree Fruity Squeeze Tint range RRP $17.
With 9 undeniably gorgeous colours to choose from, these lip tints are the ultimate lip choice for any look.
The formula is a lightweight consistency, non-sticky and easily glides across the lips, allowing for buildable coverage.
When applied, it leaves a dewy appearance with a slight tint to enhance the lips natural colour.
