I woke up one morning this week and my lips were chapped. Not just chapped, but chapped chapped. Trekking across the Arctic tundra chapped. I walked to my favorite make up girl at Laura Mercier (sidenote: she looks like a cherub and I want to be her friend) and explained my situation. She introduced me to quite possibly the most exquisite thing I have ever put on my lips… the Laura Mercier Lip Treatment kit. A little polishing and a little conditioning, and two days later my lips were back in all of their hydrated pouty glory.
Smith’s Rosebud Salve also assisted on the rescue mission. I’ve tried more lip glosses than I like to admit, but I always come back to this one. It’s heaven in a tin. $6, lasts forever, hydrates beautifully and has a light rose scent. For those of you who are freaked by putting your gloss on with your finger, you’ll be excited when you hear that Anthropologie also carries it in a tube. I personally prefer the old school version, but that’s just how I roll.
