LADIES! How are we all doing? I hope your weeks has been good so far.
I don't know where you're from and what's the weather like in your city/country but here it's hot. It's actually REALLY hot in UK at the moment. Currently sweating just by typing this.
Maybe. But it's my blog, right?
Summer also means a few other better things.
You can wear those high heels in the evening and you won't freeze, rock these short skirts (maybe not too short..) and experiment with your makeup - especially if you're on holiday or don't have college/uni. We all want to rock those bright shades we saw on the catwalks - the orange lipsticks and the bright pinks. But do we forget to take care of our lips?
I do indeed commit the crime of not really caring much about moisturising my lips because, in all honesty, I forget - and I have very rarely suffered from dry chapped lips. Lately though I don't know what happened but I wasn't really able to just throw on a matte lip product without looking at the mirror and thinking "Girl, this ain't a good look..".
I took a few basic steps here and there - lip scrub, applying moisturiser etc - and then decided it would be cool if I found a product that I'd wear all the time and that would give me some colour, make my lips feel AND look nice PLUS protect them with some SPF.
Brace yourselves girlfriends, because I did find it: It's the LANOLIPS LIP OINTMENT!
This is going to sound well weird but I was actually attracted by the cute packaging. There's a freaking SHEEP on it! I am a sucker for cute little details like that and not having heard of this brand before made it that little bit more intriguing to me.
Some facts: I found out this product was voted a 10/10 by The Times UK! I have obviously been living under a rock for ages. It contains the world's finest lanolin plus vitamin E and SPF 15. Triple win! It's dermatologically tested and all the products from this brand are CRUELTY FREE! Basically it's the bomb.
These specific balms come in 5 different shades and mine is in Rose. It looks so natural and it plumps my lips with no tingling effect at all. The colour is absolutely gorgeous and would work on any skin tone! I love the fact that it's not sticky at all and that it gives that nice glossy effect with mega hydration! It's like a lip mask!
On the packaging it does say that you may find it accumulating on the corner of your mouth due to how intense it is but I haven't had that issue at all! The applicator is a little old school with the infamous tube - and I know some of you may dislike it - but it's so easy to clean and it's perfect to spread the product evenly!
I can honestly say this is a bag staple that it should be always with you no matter what!
My score? 10/10!
You can find it in Boots by the way so it's not hard to get.
I hope this review was helpful.
