Lip Balm Addiction


These are all mine. Yes, ALL of them! Finally, the obsession is public now. I have a special place in my heart (and in my dressing-room) for lip balms. Firstly, I love that they have so many delicious names like lip balms, lip butter, lip tint, lip shield and what not..

Secondly, there are endless number of varieties, and flavors available in the market to try! A girl can never have too many. ADDICTIONNN!!
And before you ask, yes, I use of all them, depending on my mood and the need of the hour. I have opinions for all of them –

VLCC Lip Shield – Super soft, and smells delicious! I use the Cocoa butter one, it’s great for daily use. Keeps lips hydrated for hours.
Maybelline Baby Lips – A tinted lip balm. The color is subtle but makes lips appear full and supple. Great when you don’t have time to apply a lipstick and want a little color on your lips.
Neosporin – The night version (Neosporin Lip Health Overnight Renewal Therapy) is magical. It claims to heal the chapped lips if you apply it 3 nights in a row! And it really works. Lips stay soft and moist even in the morning. I give 10 on 10 to this one! And the day version (Neosporin Lip Health Daily Hydration Therapy Lip Balm) has SPF 20 in it! Bonus points!!
Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm – It’s soothing, cooling and refreshing! Another amazing lip balm for curing chapped lips. Great help in fighting the after effects of winter. Though I like the original version more than the tinted one. How about you?
The Body Shop Lip Butters – I have mentioned it earlier that I really like the Satsuma Shimmer Born Lippy Lip Butter version, but the Pink Grapefruit one was a total disappointment. Since that one leaves a white glaze on the lips and does not smell that good. Forgot to picture, but I also love the Lip scrub from Body Shop, it is so effective and so amazing!
EOS Lip Balm – Has SPF 15 and tastes amazing! Stays on the lips as long as you don’t lick it! No, really, no kidding! LOL..
Smith’s Rosebud Salve – Bought from the Urban Outfitters store. And they are superb! Loved both the versions (strawberry and mint). Too good!
Lush Lip tint – It’s a matte lip tint. (wore it in this post). Would not put it in the category of a lip balm, since it’s a substitute of a lipstick. But I like it. 
Nivea Lip care – Not a big fan of this one. Though it gives a little color to the lips (I got the red one), but it dries fast, re-application is required quite frequently. Better if used as a gloss (or if you don’t mind re-applying in short intervals).
L’Oreal Colour Riche Balm – A good nude lipstick kind-a balm. Stays for more than 6 hours. Good for daily application like in office or school. Has SPF 15 (yayy..) Love it!
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter – Nice one and love that it gives a nice shiny color to the lips! Great substitute of a lipstick.
Vaseline – I use it when I do not find anything else (and/or ‘in emergencies’). How can the collection be complete without a Vaseline?


There you go! Here are all my lip balms I have used so far (actually I have used more than these)! Which are your favorites? I don’t mind adding more to my list 😉
