If you guys follow me on Instagram you would know from my Instagram Stories that I had an absolutely wonderful time in the Caribbean but after spending countless hours under the sun it definitely took a toll on my skin.
Even though I took the proper steps to take care of my skin from the sun’s harmful rays like wearing a hat and putting sunscreen on, at the end of the day there is only so much that I can do.
If the NARS Orgasm blush didn’t make you feel some type of way when you applied it then imagine what you would do when I tell you that NARS is expanding their collection and coming out with an Orgasm Lip Balm.
For those of you who’ve purchased something from the Orgasm collection you will know that it is a pinky peach shade with a perfect touch of shimmer from the gods.
I am convinced that this product was sent from the gods of lip care. As a frequent lipstick wearer, and for extended hours at a time, my lips tend to suffer from dryness as well as peeling. Rough, dry and peeling lips is never sexy, especially under some matte lipstick! I do still routinely scrub and exfoliate my lips but sometimes I just need something more to lock in that moisture and I believe I’ve finally found it.

butter London’s Lush Lip Oil in the shade Ballet Blush is the business. I’ve never purchased any form of lip oil before and that’s why I was motivated to get this one. This lip oil is packed with so much healing benefits and awesome ingredients like chia seed oil, pear seed oil and green tea extract that leaves your lips fully moisturized for up to like 4 hours.
One negative may be the price point for some of us but at $22 it’s definitely worth every penny. Packaging and application is simple and super easy with just two pumps that gives you the perfect amount to fully cover your lips. It glides on smoothly with a sheer tint of color and most importantly it’s not sticky, I can’t stand a sticky lip gloss!

I recently picked up an e.l.f. tinted lip balm when I was on one of my grocery runs. It was definitely an impulse buy but so is about 60% of my makeup collection. The good news is that this e.l.f. lip balm was only a dollar so if it didn’t work out then I wouldn’t feel so bad. It comes in a super cute little container that will fit absolutely anywhere!
I got the tinted e.l.f lip balm in the color peach just because it was the brightest of the three colors on the fixture and the other two just seemed too neutral to me. Now because the lip balm only cost me a dollar I really didn’t expect it to work any wonders but much to my surprise it did keep my lips moisturized for more than four hours.
The only negative I have is that I didn’t really see much of a peachy tint on my lips as it claimed . It was also a bit sticky at first try but that may have been because I applied three coats of the lip balm due to lack of seeing the peach tint.
This is a lip balm that I will definitely purchase again. Even though I didn’t get to see the tint that I wanted, it was functional and got the job done of keeping my lips moisturized. The stickiness that I felt at first try did wear off after some time. You can also check out some of my other lip balms and lip care products that give me great results.

I have tried many lip balms and I’m on a quest to find those that actually help to keep my lips from peeling and drying out. Another on my list is the Carmex Lip Balm. This lip balm was able to keep my lips moist in the dead of winter when there was wind chills below twenty degrees, which of course, is the perfect recipe for dry, sore and painful lips. I applied this lip balm to my lips as often as needed and it did get the job done. It applies smoothly and has a minty finish that soothes. I will forever keep this lip balm as part of my stash as long as it exists.
