Smith's-Vaseline-Lip-Balms.jpgGuess what? Your lips are in for a real treat. We like to think we’re connoisseurs of lip balm—we’ve tried them all, believe it or not. And, recently, these two really have us singing their praises. Oh, and the best part? They ring in under $6!

Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm
The latest in a long line of this brand’s cult favorites to switch to tube form, Minted Rose is utterly divine. It smells and tastes minty fresh and delicious, it leaves the prettiest glossy sheen upon the lips, and the squeeze tube churns out just enough product to coat your pucker for hours.

Vaseline Original Lip Therapy
First of all, how cute is this miniature tub? We’ve taken to carrying it around everywhere we go, just so we can pull it out of our purse and stare admiringly. It’s just a bonus that the formula prevents chapping and makes our lips feel super soft and smooth.

Disney-Fairy-Princess-Lip-Smackers.jpgOh, to be a kid again. We’ve long been obsessed with Disney movies, Disney princesses, fairy tales … there’s just something so lovely about the idea of escaping to another world through these media. And it’s never been so easy, thanks to the Disney Lip Smacker Fairy Tale Adventure Trio Collection.

Seriously, how adorable are the three lip balms in this collection? Choose from Jasmine (Berry Magic), Ariel (Calypso Berry) or Belle (Tea Party Treats). Each one features one of the Disney princesses on the front and they’re all packed with shimmer and glitter, which just make us feel so girly and cute.

And, as with every Lip Smacker, our lips are left feeling soft, smooth and moisturized! What’s not to love?

Clinique-Chubby-Stick-Moisturizing-Lip-Colour-Balm.jpgIt’s a lipgloss! It’s a lipstick! It’s a lip balm! It’s … all three? Yes, if you’re talking about Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm.

We love that this is the perfect combination of gloss, stick and balm. It slicks on easily (gloss), it stays forever (stick), and it makes lips feel amazing (balm). It imparts a subtle hint of color that makes lips look deliciously juicy.

Add to that the fact that this stick comes in 16 mouthwatering colors, ranging from pale nude (Bountiful Blush) to dark chocolate berry (Richer Raisin), and we have to say, we’re hooked. For good.

Givenchy-Hydra-Sparkling-Balm.jpgWe’re all about customized color—a color that’s truly ours, no matter what. So is it any wonder that Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Magic Lip & Cheek Balm has completely stolen our hearts?

This innocent little tub is filled with a pink balm that magically gives lips and cheeks the prettiest flush. It’s formulated with pigments that react with the skin’s humidity to create a personalized hint of color! And not only that … Hyaluronic acid and Luffa oil moisturize and soften the skin.

But, really, we’re just completely enamored with the fact that the balm creates a different color and glow for us than it does for anyone else. And, really, what’s more special than that?

Bonne-Bell-Lip-Smackers-Originals-8-Piece-Party-Pack.jpgWe’re going to let you in on a little secret. We love the Bonne Bell Lip Smackers Originals 8 Piece Party Pack. And while many people might think this makes us seem childish, we know better.

Lip Smackers are, without a doubt, the best lip balm we’ve ever tried. A few swipes back and forth (after much playing around, we’ve determined that 4-6 swipes on both top and bottom lips should do it) and your pout is soft and smooth for hours on end. We’ve even tested this before bed, and eight hours later, our lips were still covered in balm and chap-free!

Plus, how can you go wrong with the fun flavors in this set? The party pack contains eight of the sweet, tried and true flavors Bonne Bell girls have come to know and love. Choose from Vanilla, Mango, Wild Raspberry, Watermelon, Tropical Punch, Cotton Candy, Kiwi and Strawberry—each one more delicious and delectable than the next.

Used often (and we mean 3-4 times daily), one Lip Smacker should last you at least a month. So this set will keep you going for quite some time!
