Right now I am obsessed with two lip balms: the EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm and La Mer The Lip Balm. They are fantastic and I just have to rave to you about them. One is definitely a splurge and the other is so wallet friendly that you’ll want to get each flavor, which is what I did.
I picked up La Mer’s The Lip Balm a few months ago on a whim. I was at the La Mer counter admiring their new concealer (more on that next week) and thought “what the hell” so I picked it up. It’s definitely one of the most expensive lip balms I’ve ever bought (my old tube of By Terry Baume de Rose is slightly more expensive) but I had seen so many raves on it that I couldn’t resist any longer. The Lip Balm’s texture is nice and thick, which just how I like it. Every time I dip into it, it makes my lips feel absolutely pillow-ey. Plus it smells delicious, like mint-chocolate chip ice cream.
The wallet friendly EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm definitely gives the La Mer The Lip Balm some competition. I love this lip balm so much that I went to 4 Walgreens and 5 Rite Aids trying to get all 3 flavors.The first time I tried this lip balm, I had just picked it up in a boutique (that shall remain nameless) in New York for twice as much as it sells for in a drugstore but that’s ok, it was still worth it. It has a thinner texture than the La Mer but it still keeps my lips moist and today’s key word: pillow-ey. EOS also makes a stick lip balm but I love gliding that sphere along my lips. My favorite flavor is the Sweet Mint but Honeysuckle Dew and Summer Fruit flavors are just as good. At under $4 each, it’s worth a shot.
Have you tried either of these lip balms? Which one do you like? Let us know in the comments.
