Thankfully its not like this all the time and there are lots of things available to combat the dreaded dry skin and lips that winter brings!
I have been a big fan of tinted lip balms all my life: from stealing my mum's shimmery Nivea lip salve when I was in primary school to the days of rose-tinted Vaseline in high-school. (I have never ever finished a tub of Vaseline. I always just buy a new one when the old one gets a bit grimy looking. Probably why I have zero money these days.) Safe to say I'm always on the lookout!
I had heard a few people talking about Maybelline Baby Lips and saw it on offer in Asda for £2.50. Such a bargain! Usually they cost about £4 each. They aren't too richly pigmented which I love and your lips are left nice and smooth afterwards. Baby smooth in fact. There are loads of different colours. I have Pink Punch and I absolutely love it! It is the most beautiful, perfect bubblegum pink colour.
Similarly I'd heard heaps of good things about the Revlon Lip Butters. I popped into Superdrug one day to kill some time and ended up coming out with loads of stuff (as per usual) and amongst all that stuff was a Revlon Lip Butter in the colour Juicy Papaya. It is very different to the usual pink toned colours I'd wear with much more of an orangey undertone. I am definitely going to expand my collection of these two lip products and most likely end up buying every single colour available!
