Say Goodbye to Chapped Lips: These Top 5 Lipsticks Can Withstand Any Cold Weather

12Dec11

East Coast winters have a knack for being harsh on the lips, and mine are no exception.  I spend most of the season avoiding any lipstick that isn’t high-moisture, but that doesn’t mean I want to do nude color lips all winter long.  I need options to keep the dreary days ahead nice and bright!

These are my 5 must-haves for high-moisture lipsticks that camouflage and heal chapped lips while offering the best sheer to bold color coverage.  If you’re anything like me, you’ll love having these options in your cosmetic bag.  And of course, their budget chic too!

    Ok, for a non-fashon savy follower…which one is the sheer????? Looking for something low-key yet shimmery. :)

    • Try the first two options if you’re looking for sheer (Clinique’s Almost Lipstick and Neutrogena’s Lip Balm). Both are light weight and creamy. If you’re looking for a little extra shimmer try Sephora’s Lip Attitude-Star. It comes in a ton of great shades and gives you the shimmery glossy finish you want. Let me know which one you try, Cherie!
