Sephora Collection Super Nourishing Lip Balm

sephora2

This was another product I brought on a random whim while surfing the Sephora site.  I can’t seem to ever have enough of a product like this because for some reason I lose lip balms/glosses like no other.  Luckily, the most recent one of these that I bought is still in my possession!  (The one before that I didn’t actually lose-I left it in my car only to find it melted later in the afternoon *sigh*).

This lip balm really is nourishing.  Aside from the fact that it’s nourishing, I love that it has no color and just gives a very light clear coating over your lips, accentuating your lips natural color.

It always makes my lips feel pillowy soft and smooth.  I also use it under lip color or gloss from time to time because it helps either one of those apply smoothly and evenly without any feathering.

This is definitely an essential in my bag.

Pros:

  • Nourishing & Conditioning
  • Makes lips super soft and smooth
  • Works well under another lip gloss/color
  • Colorless

Cons:

  • Tip can break off easily (or melts if you leave it in your car in the sun….ughhh)
