The key to a perfect pout? Soft, moisturized lips. Which is why I know you’re going to love Mereadesso’s Lip Treats ($28.00). Sure, the price is a little steeper than your every balms, but these are fantastic. And the best part? You get 2 – one to keep in your purse, one to keep at home (or your boyfriend’s place, you never know when you’re going to need it!).
They’re made with a blend of evening primrose, grape seed, coconut and sunflower oils with the benefits of Vitamins A, C, and E thrown in – in other words, perfect for getting your lips in perfect shape. I really like using these as a balm (it does leave a nice sheen), but they are also perfect to use as a primer under lipstick or gloss (or on top of a stain), as they help smooth out your lips to create a perfect base. They also have a very, very light lemon-y scent, which is barely noticeable but still there, and it smells dee-lish. Another plus? These are totally non-waxy, and leave your lips soft. The only downside to these that I’ve found so far is that they are very narrow – so the tip is quite thin, moreso than I’m used to in a balm. That’s not really a huge problem though, which is why I’m adding these to my list of holy grails!
