Just in case you hadn't noticed , lipstick is THE makeup accessory of choice right now ( did you not peep the Revlon Red SJP wore to the recent SATC 2 premiere ?) and now that our lovely Leigh is strutting her stuff in not just any lipstick...but Chanel Lipstick dahling, I think it's the perfect opportunity to spotlight two amazing lip care products. Lip care is vital at the best of times ( as in, even if all you do is wear gloss) . Just like the skin on your body , your lips need regular exfoliation and lots and lots of moisture.
Once every two weeks I use Sara Happs Brown Sugar Lip Scrub. It smells and feels great, so much so that I am often tempted to eat it! It really does the job and leaves my lips kissably soft and lipstick ready. I then slather on heaps of lip balm. At the moment I'm using the lush new mandarin lip butter sticks by Korres. I usually leave it to sit for a good 10 mins (note, this is done on a Sunday afternoon as part of my pampering ritual) before I blot it off with a soft tissue. My lips are then primed for another 2 weeks of lipstick wearing worthiness.
P.S. I highly recommend dancing around to Prince's K.I.S.S. when performing this ritual
