It’s winter, also known as the season of dry, chapped lips. But that doesn’t mean you have to hide away your kisser for five months of the year. Instead, try out Maybelline New York’s Baby Lips lip balm, which contains a plant concentrate used to repair skin, plus vitamin C, E and B5 to moisturize damaged lips. It also has SPF 20 to keep those lips smooth and protected in rain or shine.
We like the tinted balms (Peach Kiss, Cherry Me, Pink Punch and Grape Vine) that add a hint of colour, but the clear balms (Quenched and Peppermint) are great for multi-tasking. Used on the Spring 2012 runway at the BCBG show, Quenched helped create a dewy sheen on bare lips. When swiped across the eyelids, it created a glow that perfectly suited the wet-look hairstyles on the catwalk. This product is definitely a winner for low maintenance beauty that will put a smile on your face.
