Being in a country that is burning hot practically the whole time and having to juggle so many hats all at once makes me plan my day down to the T. So the luxury of casually putting on makeup hasn’t really been on my daily routine. But there is always enough amount of seconds that allows me to put on some balm though!
My favorite clear balms are the Lucas Papaw Ointment and the L’Occitane balm because they are just as basic as me. They also do make a good base before applying a more harsh coat of lipstick or liquid lipstick at that! I like wearing this alone or to heal some burns!
For my tinted specials, I really love the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in 03 and the KIKO Makeup Milano Kiss Balm in Raspberry(no longer on the shelves, sorry!).
The best thing about using tinted lip balms or just regular balms, is that it hydrates your lips throughout the day. It allows your lips to breathe and sort of acts as a recovery coat after that awfully life sucking liquid lipstick you wore the whole weekend.
But most especially, it is the most low maintenance lip product you will ever buy in your life that every (boy and) girl would need one.
