HeLlOoOo My LoVeLiEs!!!
A common problem that I face is dry and easily cracked lips. I prefer the nude, baby-soft pink tones for lipglosses && I really appreciate the thicker && longer lasting stickiness of various lines of glosses (Personal FAV = MAC).
However, because my lips peel, the lighter toned lipglosses show the loose skin && conflicts with the thick stickiness of the gloss. This bothers me for some reason because I want that flawless smooth shine hehe!!!
I tried the quick && easier way of applying moisturizer before my gloss but depending on the gloss color, the loose skin still shows through && creates an uneven texture on my lips.
So, instead, I tried applying moisturizer to my lips before I go to sleep so that it can "go to work" while I'm sleeping. For me, I need this extra treatment time so that my lips can be fully moisturized. It's really wonderful because I can wake up with smooth lips ready to be glossed && left with a super silky smooth shine (^.*)
Here's my top three *go-to* moisturizers that I use:
Moisturizer 1 - Paul & Joe Alice in Wonderland Special Edition Lip Treatment Stick
Moisturizer 2 - MAC Lip Conditioner Stick SPF 15
Moisturizer 3 - Lioele All Night Moisture Lip Essence
For *Night* use, I will sway more to the Lioele Lip Essence just because it is almost like vaseline, with a very thick consistency that will last && moisturize throughout the entire night. Also has a fruity jolly rancher candy scent.
The MAC Lip Conditioner is great, especially as a lip protector from the sun because it does have SPF protection from UVA/UVB. Also has a light vanilla scent.
The Paul & Joe Lip Treatment Stick is also very effective as it is cute (packaging sucker), it soothes && smooths to create a softer lip. On non-lipgloss days, I use as a touch up treatment to add moisture to my lips throughout the day.
I would say I like them all equally because they all do their number one job of *Moisturizing*, but also have individual advantages as well.
I highly recommend using moisturizers if you suffer from the same easily crackable lips like mine!!!
Protect those luscious lips && give them the silky smooth shine they deserve (^.*)
