My Current Lipbalm Wardrobe: Gems from Aerin, Fresh + Napoleon Perdis

Above: My lip balm menagerie...(1) Aerin Rose Lip Balm, (2) Fresh Sugar Tulip and (3) Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Overnight Lip Balm.
With the temperatures finally dropping on the West Coast, I am finding that my perennially dry lips are in need of some extra reinforcements.  In turn, my lip balm wardrobe currently consists of three marvelous lip balms that, while equally effective, serve different purposes throughout my day.  

Kindly scroll on for more details, images and the Bottom Line...

(1) Aerin Rose Lip Balm: This silky formula comes in a chic pot, renders a slightly shiny, whisper of pink tint and infuses the lips with a rose scented salve that locks moisture in for hours.  Sophisticated, restrained and endlessly lovely, I envision this new release becoming an iconic product in the gorgeous Aerin line.  Such a brilliant option for casual moments at home (see below) and on the go.  Permanently in my purse as of late!

(2) Fresh Sugar Tulip: When you are in the mood for a more colorful statement, this sheer hot pink wonder (which also boasts SPF 15) offers lipstick-quality pigmentation, coupled with an ultra-moisturizing formula that one has come to expect from the venerable Fresh line. If the Aerin Rose Balm is the demure debutante, then Fresh Sugar Tulip is her edgy, sassy younger sister...so much fun ; ) 

(3) Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Overnight Lip Balm: This clear, practically matte formula has been a nighttime ritual for me in November. With a texture that feels like velvet and a soft vanilla scent that immediately calms the senses, I have been utterly astounded by how smooth, plump and hydrated my lips are the morning after application.  The streamlined black tube and clear balm may feel rather understated, but believe me when I say that the results are anything but.  Off to finish my tea, apply some and go to bed this minute!

Bottom Line: In light of the fact that lips look and feel their best when they receive moisture 24 hours a day, the concept of a lip balm wardrobe makes completely rational sense to me!  I am enjoying these new additions to my lip balm menagerie and appreciate the fact that they each fulfill a different, yet vital, objective in my quest for around the clock hydration.

What are some of YOUR favorite lip balms?

  1. My fave lip balm is from Bobby Brown. Comes in a pot and it is soooo emollient on my lips and lasts a nice long time. I keep it on my vanity and use it every morning before lipstick. But I will start using it overnight now!

  2. I love the fresh faced pic of you! I don't post here very often, but have to say I love your blog and check it daily :-)

    My fave lip balm is Dr. Hauschka's lip care stick. I have one at the bedside, in my car, purse and tennis bag! I adore it!

    XOXO,
    Trish

  3. I love Fresh but my color is the Berry. It's more lasting colorwise than most of them. For a cheap thrill the tinted Burt's Bees are nice. Have you seen the tinted ByTerry's? Perfection.

  4. My faves are: By Terry and Dr.Hauschka lip balm in a glass jar. Like Dr. Haushka lip care stick too but lip balm is much more moisturizing. Great when extra healing is needed. Also like Cle de peau as a primer. I use it now under my TF First time matte lipstick and it's great.
