It’s been a cold winter so far. Like, we’re talking cold. Yesterday, it hit -17 degrees outside by midday, but, to make things even worse, with the windchill it felt like -26 degrees. And today, today is balmy in comparison! It’s only -12, and with the windchill, it feels like -19! Bikini weather!! -.- With all of this LOVELY winter weather that we’ve been getting here, all I’ve been doing in my downtime is cuddling up by the fire, mug of tea in hand, watching some classic movies or reading a good book (I’m currently reading Burning Blue by Paul Griffin, SO GOOD), and giving my cat Lucky some extra attention. There’s a pattern that I’ve noticed, though, and do you know what it is? I’ve not worn a pink or a nude lip more than once or twice in the last couple of weeks. What is it about the colder months of the year that leaves us yearning for dark lips? I don’t know, but it happens, every year, without fail. However, with all of those lovely dark lip looks comes the biting chill of winter on our doorstep, and with that comes the dreaded chapped lip.
Today, I’m going to show you some of my go-to lip products for this time of year, but seeing as I have gathered so many products to show you, I’m going to break this into three parts, which will be posted consecutively Tuesday January 20 – Thursday January 22, 2015! That way, each section, if you will, can get the love and attention that it deserves! I’ll still include everything you need to know, it will just be an easier read. So, let’s start, shall we? Today’s post will feature my favourite lip care products and how I use them to avoid getting lips so chapped that they are blood red. And not the artificial kind of blood red, either…yea, not a good look.
