Lakme lip love lipcare apricot

This is my favorite tinted lip balm  currently. This is peachy coral shade. 

Price : Rs. 180

I absolutely  love tinted lip balms, for they provide enough color, protection to lips. And unlike lipstick, you can really be care free about precise application. 

       I tried two shades – apricot and caramel at the Lakme counter. Caramel is more peachy. The color coded packaging makes it easier to identify product among the myriad of other products. The packaging is in exact color  of the lip balm. 

                This is very hydrating lip balm. Smoothes lip lines. This reminds me of elle18 lipstick, which have a similar bullet with moisturizing core in the center surrounded with color. But this is definitely more hydrating than those.This doesn’t feel waxy, is light on the lips. Stay on lips for 2-3hours.Doesnt stain lip. This have fruity smell. 

         Pigmentation  wise, this is not highly pigmented .It gives only sheer coverage. If you want more coverage, you can always use a lip brush, pick just color and apply on lips(that’s what the SA did on me) . This doesn’t effect their hydrating property. But don’t expect a dramatic coverage. 

      Overall, this is very hydrating tinted lip balm with sheer coverage.i would recommend  this for everyone (except if you want more coverage and more staying power, but I wouldn’t mind that.)

Chapped lip saviours and my lipcare routine 

Hi, all. I guess most people in this planet suffer from Chapped lips. And those who don’t have Chapped lips, I see you as a aliens, you can’t be human!! 
          Again, get  ready for a short blog post. Because I myself can’t get  to read long posts where they talk about everything happening in their life and the world. OK, enough talking. Let’s get into business. I’m not going to give you a long list of remedies and products. You will find here what all I tried, what worked and what didn’t. Very minimalistic. 

         What worked : This is a step by step routine. 

  • Step 1 –  Use a lipbalm every single night. Clichéd I know. But there is a twist to it. I use 2-3 coats of lipbalm. Currently use Nivea essential care lipbalm. You can buy it here
  • Step 2 – Scrub daily morning .  No lip scrub recipes or products. Just get a microfiber towel gently wipe of the lipbalm in the morning. 
  • Step 3 – use a hydrating lipproduct. I use a tinted lipbalm – lakme lip love apricot. U can buy it here. No mattes here. 

      Now the usual. Drink loads of water. Eat vegetables and fruits.

       Now, what didn’t work:

      • Using sugar Lipscrub
      • Using oils/ghee on lip. 
      • Scrubbing using  tooth brush. This just made it worse. 

      These things just didn’t work for me. And above said routine is what works currently. This routine has reduced  lip pigmentation and fine lines to great extent. 

               Do you have a remedy  or routine for dry Chapped lips? Leave yours in comments  below. Waiting  for your responses.
