7 Lip Products To Pucker Up This Valentine’s Day
Whether you’re preparing for a virtual Zoom date, a Galentine’s quiz with your favourite friends or cosying up on the sofa for a lockdown night in with your other half, we’ve gathered the best lip products you need for a perfect pout this Valentine’s Day!
Has constant mask wearing over the last few months gotten the better of your skin – maskne anyone? In addition to the dreaded arrival of maskne, you may have also noticed that you’ve started neglecting your pout. Many of us are shunning the use of lipsticks and lip balms, for fear that they’ll end up smeared all on the inside of our masks! Then there’s the joy of dry and chapped lips thanks to the friction of daily mask wearing.
But fear not! We’re sharing our top products to revive your lips for a perfectly prepped pout this Valentine’s Day.
The lips are often an area that gets neglected when it comes to skincare, but just as the rest of the face and body, our lips continue to age with time. The skin is much thinner in the lip area and often exposed to environmental factors that also plays a role in the ageing process. Therefore, it is important to use targeted pharmaceutical skincare that is specifically designed to revive and replenish lips.
iS Clinical Lip Polish
This smoothing, hydrating and renewing lip polish will gently exfoliate delicate lip skin leaving it feeling softer, plumper and more hydrated. It is best used with a gentle, light touch around 2-3 times per week.
iS Clinical Youth Lip Elixir
This nourishing Crème Complex provides intense and long-lasting penetrative hydration, visibly improving the appearance of dry and dehydrated lips. Packed full of antioxidants and DNA repair technology, this advanced lip treatment will leave lips looking plumper and will help to redefine the lip contour with regular use. Use the Youth Lip Elixir as frequently as desired.
Far more than just a traditional lip balm, this ultra-hydrating and replenishing lip treatment contains a polypeptide complex alongside, avocado oil and Vitamin E, to instantly soothe dry lips and enhance the appearance and volume of the lip contours for naturally full lips.
The nourishing combination of avocado oil and Vitamin E delivers rich, natural moisture and a skin conditioning antioxidant for soft, hydrated and quenched lips. Plus, the beautiful sheer pink tint delivers a subtle shine and kissable lips!
SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Lip Repair is a deeply hydrating treatment to smooth lips and the surrounding lip area to improve the appearance of lines and boost lip volume. Dry lips are healed with a potent blend of humectants and emollients, including Hyaluronic Acid, Hydroxyethyl Urea and Glycerin.
The appearance of lines on the lips and surrounding areas are improved for healthy and youthful looking lips. Powerful antioxidants Vitamin E and Silymarin work synergistically to protect lips from environmental damage, ensuring they remain smooth and full.
Available in 12 different shades, the Jane Iredale Beyond Matte Lip Fixation Stain was put to the test as part of the Daily Mail smudge-proof formulations test. Coming out on top in all categories with full marks, the tester described Jane Iredale Beyond Matte Lip Fixation Stain, in shade Devotion, as “very oily and moisturising. I was staggered to see it left the mask pristine, and the shimmery colour stayed intact for a full 24 hours.”
Formulated with high quality conditioning and nourishing ingredients, Jane Iredale Beyond Matte Lip Fixation Stain delivers ultra long lasting pigments and beautiful coverage without any feathering.
This 100% hypoallergenic balm is formulated with minimal ingredients and fragrance to be sensitive on skin. The soothing and repairing action hydrates both dry and cracked lips thanks to a 5% concentration of Panthenol, allowing instant relief from dryness. 3% MP-Lipids helps to strengthen the hydroplipidic film, preventing any further damage to the lips such as chapping or cracking.
This is the lip product for you if you’ve been suffering with mask-induced dry lips.
This unique lip treatment is packed with active ingredients to increase hydration, soften fine lines and enhance lip definition. Jan Marini Hyla3D HA Lip Complex is enriched with a blend of Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides and Retinol, helping to target visible signs of ageing not just on the lips, but also the surrounding peri-oral area.
The lip complex uses 3-Dimensional approach to boost skin’s natural hyaluronic acid levels and restore a more youthful appearance. It can also be applied before lipstick application for a hydrating and anti-ageing base.
