Best & Worst Moisturizing Lip Products

.

This post was actually published on Cozycot.com early this year. I was one of the bloggers who was invited to contribute a monthly post on their Articles section. However, I couldn’t locate the section anymore and I believe they have removed the section due to low readership.

Not to waste it, I decided to post it here……

I hate having dry and chapped lip. If I need to pick one beauty product to survive in the jungle, it will definitely be a super moisturizing lip balm. I basically cannot leave without any moisturizing lip product. There’s always a lip balm around me – one in the handbag, one on the study table, one on my office desk and one on the dressing table.

If I couldn’t find a lip product around me, my next alternative quick fix lip hydrator will be an eye cream. What makes a good lip product – be it a lip balm, lip gloss or lipstick? Well for me, most of all it has to be super moisturizing that is long lasting.

I have tested a couple of good and bad lip products recently. I can’t wait to share with you on what are the BEST and WORST moisturizing lip products I have tested so far!

Best Moisturizing Lip Balm

Sisley Nutritive Lip Balm

This extremely expensive lip balm (S$80) effectively moisturizes my lip without feeling dry for a long long time. The hydration is super long-lasting! After application, my lip appears pinkish and smooth. The cracks and lines seem less visible too.

Worst Moisturizing Lip Balm

Mogitate Kajitsu Lip Balm

This recently launched lip balm, available at selected Watsons and Guardian, is the worst lip balm I have ever tested. It doesn’t moisturize my lip at all and in fact my lip often feels drier after a while. I have to keep applying it almost every hour. I would not recommend this product at all!

Best Moisturizing Lip Gloss

Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss

If you are a fan of high shiny lip gloss, then this new improved Hourglass lip gloss (S$41) is a perfect choice for you. It provides an ultra-radiant gloss with ultra shine and keeps my lip lustrous and super moisturizing too. This latest pinkish shade, Fortune, is my favorite shade.

Worst Moisturizing Lip Gloss

Maquillage Glossy gloss

My lip always gets even drier within minutes after applying it. I do not like the texture as it’s too sticky for my lip and I feel very uncomfortable with it.

Most Interesting Moisturizing Lip Product

Clarins Instant Blush Magic Colour

This Limited Edition Instant Blush (S$42) is amazing! It instantly reacts on contact with the lip. When it is applied on lip, it will become a beautiful gloss which enhances the natural lip color. It moisturizes my lip pretty well too.

Best Moisturizing Lipstick

Joli Rouge Brillant Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick

I really love the color (13 Cherry) and the texture very much! Joli Rouge Brilliant (S$33) provides intense shine for a fuller-looking and luscious lips. Super hydrating and love the shimmery finish!

.

Worst Moisturizing Lipstick

Maquillage Lip Refiner

This Shiseido lipstick doesn’t moisturize my lip at all. My lip feels super drying after application. A disappointment!

.

Most Favourite Duo Moisturizing Lip Product

Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer (Shade: Fig)

This color lip balm (S$14) is super moisturizing. It acts as a lipstick that gives a natural color while provides a long-lasting hydration. I’ve been constantly replenishing it and I’m on my fourth stick now. Love it! ;-)
