Passion for Fashion… And Lip Balm
I admit that I am obsessed with Chap Stick. No, I am addicted to Chap Stick. Other people are addicted to nose spray – I need my Chap Stick. As many people in the US say “Chap Stick” if they need something for their lips, the German word is “Labello” – even though they might not necessarily need a proper “Labello” stick but just a regular “Chap Stick”. No one would say lip balm – also that would be the brand-neutral term.
My obsession goes so far that I collect all my precious lip balms (yes, I am using the proper term now) in a little bag and carry it around with me at all times – because I will definitely get chapped lips if I do not bring a lip balm. If I have them with me I am usually good. Above you can see a small variety of my collection. My favourite is the proper lip balm from Chap Stick in the medicated version.
I am also a sucker for new lip balm products (otherwise I would not have as many as I have) and I noticed two new products I have to get.
The first one is the new Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm from Clinique. It is with a bit of colour and I am tempted by the colour “Whole Lotta Honey” which is a rose-brownish nude tone. Though Clinique offers a variety of a total of six great colour ranging from my light nude one to a deep red! It is supposed to be like a lip balm – just with a bit of colour. The pictures I saw on lips looked great!
The second product I would love to have or at least to try out is the new “Rouge Coco” from Chanel in the colour Peregrina. Peregrina is also a light nude colour with a rose-pinkish hint. I am totally into those nude colours as I tend to bite my lips and that so does not work with color.
I will take a look at both products next time I am heading into town. I think the Clinique one is a bit cheaper than the Chanel but I will take a look at it first. If I buy either one pictures are about to come!
