Skincare Sunday VIII: Lips, Lips, Lips

I am dedicating this week's Skincare Sunday post to some lip care items that I have really been enjoying lately. They're all relatively new to my collection and they're great:


From the back left to right:

1. Gatineau 3D Lift Volumizing Lip Balm (available from QVC or Amazon)

This is a very lightweight yet potent lip balm that leaves a glossy finish to the lips and that also plumps them! Smells like lychee and just overall makes my lips feel hydrated and voluminous. I love using this at night or during the day if I am just trolling around the house.

2. Hourglass Lip Oil (available from Sephora)

Luxurious packaging (the applicator is gold plated, haaay) and beautifully scented. If you have tried the Hourglass Primer Serum, this has a similar scent and feel, albeit a bit more "oily". The gold applicator feels cooling and comfortable on the lips, and one pump is enough for an application. I was super skeptical of this product at first but it's one of those things that has just been growing on me with each use. I love the herbal fresh scent and I love the way it makes my lips look and feel. I wouldn't use this as a lip balm primer before lipstick since it's an oil and doesn't absorb as quickly on the lips. I like using this alone on days off or over night. It's not sticky, it's not cheap, but it's a nice little treat :)

3. Nivea Lip Butter Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss (available from drugstores)

A beautiful budget alternative. This smells absolutely amazing and I've been using it daily under lipstick as a primer. I am not a big fan of potted lip products but this makes me get over it.

What are your favourite lip treatments?
