As much as I love wearing lipsticks, taking care of the vessel, a.k.a. the lips comes first. Because honey, no matter how phenomenal a lipstick is, there is no way I’m going to wear it with dry and chapped lips. OK, maybe I could, but it sure does feel more comfortable when I prep them well.
My lips are naturally dry. It’s even drier when I don’t have enough sleep, don’t drink enough water and the whole shebang. So I do need a good regime to keep them in tip-top condition. Not just because it’ll help with the lipstick application and increase the wear time, but first and foremost, who likes the feel of dry lips and the look of chapped lips? Ew. The thought of it cringes me.
Heads up, this is a long one.
