Let's be honest: Most of us makeup lovers tend to be major hoarders. This holds especially true for lip products — after all, you can't have just one shade! Plus, in addition to all the color selections out there, more and more brands have started to experiment with other sensory dimensions, like taste and smell. And you know what that means? Now, you have to own all the flavors too.
It's a daunting task to be sure, so let's prioritize. We've rounded up a few of our favorite delicious lip balms and glosses to get the ball rolling on your new collection. They're so good, you're definitely going to want seconds.
This lip balm has been getting a lot of buzz thanks to its ultra-hydrating formula and lip-smacking flavors. This multipurpose product can be used on your lips, as well as on dry patches as a skin-soothing salve. It's formulated with antioxidants and emollients to keep your lips (and skin) moisturized throughout the day. There are six variations, but we're partial to Birthday, Rose, Cherry and Coconut.
M.A.C. recently launched this dessert-themed collection with influencer Caro Daur. Much like most M.A.C. liquid lipsticks, the formula is non-drying, comfortable to wear, and the pigment lasts and lasts. It also has a mousse-like texture so you can easily swipe the color on your lips. And with scents like Death by Chocolate and Purple Panna Cotta, each swipe feels like an indulgence.
This lip gloss collection is made from a decadent blend of coconut, safflower, sunflower and soybean oils (all cold-pressed to ensure the highest quality) as well as similarly hydrating shea butter and vitamin E. These lip glosses come in three nude shades that you can wear alone to give your lips a natural sheen, or on top of your lipstick for a gorgeous finish.
Sugar is a popular ingredient for exfoliating your lips and we're particular fans of this sugar scrub from Lush. With flavors like Bubblegum, Honey, Chocolate, and Mint Julips, you'll be tempted to eat them right out of the jar. And since they're made from organic ingredients like castor sugar and jojoba oil, you practically can.Yum!
