I had a case of dry lip the other day at the office, and while rummaging through my makeup pouch, realized I had no lipbalm on me. I should not have been surprised really. I hardly ever use lipbalm but I used to have a stick kept in there for emergencies.
A reader then asked if I used lipbalm everyday to which my answer was no.
I probably belong in the minority but my use of lipbalm or any lip treatment is only at night before bed. That’s when I slather on Lucas’ Papaw Ointment or a lipbalm like MyLipStuff to protect my lips from the drying effects of the air-conditioner.
In the day, I don’t have balm on. I know tinted lipbalm is quite the rage, but I have this thing against tinted lipbalm. When I used to use tinted lipbalm (I loved the one from LipIce) I found that I’d have to reapply and with every layer you put on, the colour gets brighter and brighter and it was always an unattractive fuchsia. Since then, I’ve steered clear of tinted balms. Not to say I won’t try them. They just aren’t a preference.
I don’t even use balm under my lipsticks, or if I do, its rarely. If its a drying lipstick, I just don’t use it. Its just one of those things that are a personal preference.
Your say: Do you apply lipbalm everyday? And if you do, what’s your lipbalm of choice?
