Lip color (gloss/balms/lipstick) recommendations for super dry, chapped lips?

Recommended Posts

I have the most dry, chapped lips almost year-round and can't seem to find a lip color that won't dry my lips out more.  (FYI - my dry lips started after I used accutane for acne treatment over 10 years ago).

 

Every lipstick I have tried worsens my dry lips to the point where the color seeps into my lip wrinkles (I didn't realize I started having these).  I think lip gloss seems to be less drying for me, but I can't find one which will stay and look true to color.

 

Any recommendations?

Doesnt have color, but my HG chapstick for the past 9 years--- Palmers cocobutter chapstick.. not the mini kind with SPF... but the one that looks like a gluestick (the Swivel Stick). moisturizes, isnt waxy but very smooth. try putting it under your lip color.

Thanks!  I will look for it. Can you use a typical lipstick over it or do you just do lip gloss over it.  I tried doing lipstick over chapstick/balms,but they inevitably come off onto my teeth!

As a clear balm, I use Blistex Lip Medex- it comes in a little blue pot at the drugstore. This works great on my chronic dry/chapped lips!

 

For lip colors, have you tried stains? They might be good for under a clear balm?

I like the Almay Liquid Lip Balm in "Apple A Day" right now - color payoff is nice for a gloss and it's quite moisturizing! Also it's about $5 and you can usually find a sale or a coupon, so you really can't beat the price :)

I accidentally bought a Revlon Colorburst Lacquerbalm and upon the first use, was stunned at how moisturizing and long-lasting it was. I still wear it even though I don't enjoy the glitter in it.

I always use it under a lip stick.. It def makes the lipstick a little bit more slick but it shouldnt rub off on your teeth unless you really put a thick coat on. I use it under glosses too. most importantly, i cannot sleep without it.

I ran out of my cocobutter one day and couldnt find it at the drugstore so i bought the nivea lip butters.. i use it if i cant find anything else, but they feel so thick and so heavy it just sits on top of my lips :( i can see this being a good lip balm for nighttime though

check out Dior Lip Glow. it has a hint of color, and a very emollient and moisturizing formula. this is all i use now.

I would suggest that instead of Lipsticks you should move towards using lip balms. They are more natural and will surely not be affecting your lips adversely. These days we have quite colored lip balms available in market. You can try using that.. If you are looking out for a list of lip balms you can start using you must check out the link below. This will surely help you out.

Nude lipstick is a beauty classic. It is, after all, one of the most commonly used or referred to the product when it comes to cosmetics, and perhaps also the most enduring, with a history that extends back to over 5 millennia. Nude lipstick goes on almost every shade and every skin tone.  This article provides you deep information please do check.

    • This Advent Calendar sounds amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
    • I am going on a No Buy (replacements only) in January and February. My goal is to pay off a credit card of $140 (accounting for interest, I will need to pay off around $150), and to use up my deluxe sample sized beauty items. The same resolution I have every year, but this time it's different. I'll be paying off the last in a very long series of mini debts I had in my debt snowball, after two years of paying things off. After that I'll be going into a different phase, working on larger debts. Also, I am starting with far, far fewer sample beauty products than I used to, having used so many up in the last two years.  It's exciting, getting to the end of this phase. I'm going to be going through my samples in the next two weeks and getting ready! It's a good way to start the year, with smaller goals and easier wins. 
    • Do you like card games? for example poker?
    • Advent calendar: Day 8 - Bright red nail polish - Polish was so easy to apply, and lasted well. I got several compliments on it.  Day 9 - At the Heart of Pine Trees Holiday Shower Gel - a fresh orange scent with a soft wood note.  Day 10 - Apricot body scrub.  Day 11 - Hydrating micellar water.  Day 12 - Plein Soleil Perfume - I love the perfume! It is tuberose with a hint of cardamom, to evoke travels to the East.  Day 13 - At the Heart of Pine Trees matching body lotion.  Day 14 - Mango Coriander Shower Gel.  I've been feeling the pressure of the holidays this month! I've been frustrated, because I have not been able to make progress on paying my credit card off by the end of the year. It's looking like it's not going to happen. I wanted to pay it off by the end of the year just because of perfectionism. Since it was the last in the series of smaller balance debts in my debt snowball, I thought it would be nice to have it done by New Year's Eve and start January with a larger goal. After having a relaxed day (I went to the park for a walk and saw baby deer!), I finally thought of something that made it okay to defer that goal a bit. I realized I won't be finished with my mini beauty products by the New Year either. I have far fewer than in past years, but I'll still have some to get through. I always had the concept of using my mini sample products and paying my smaller debts (the easier goals) and after that was through, I would use up full sized products while paying off larger debts. After thinking of that, I felt it would be okay to make a new plan and give myself January and February to pay my last small bill ($140) while using up the mini products. Then in March I can begin work on larger debts and larger products! I did achieve all of my 2019 New Year's Resolutions, and paid off five credit cards this year, and I'm very happy with that. I'm not going to go on a shopping spree and buy myself a lot of things with credit cards, but I do need to make it through Christmas!       
    • I think Makeup brushes are a base for makeup, especially for this set of makeup brushes, highly recommended.
