Last week I talked about a very luxe lip balm and how the price would be right for only some of you - despite how good it is.
Today I have another designer lip balm that is also luxe, but with a very different form, package and purpose.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Lip Lock Moisture Balm is perfect for a base layer (after exfoliating lips) before applying matte lip sticks or lip pencil products, in particular. It is very thick, smooth and creamy on the lips, but didn't feel heavy or greasy.
The balm comes in only 1 color: a clear shade called "Makeout" (get it?). Lip Lock gave my lips the perfect amount of moisture, and I also liked knowing I was getting sun protection from the added SPF 18. I would say this formula is best for those of you who need average, every day moisture and don't have any flakes or severe chapping.
The packaging is lovely to look at and makes reapplication a very "glamorous" affair with it's slightly heavyweight tube and shiny black lacquered case that you twist off to reveal the balm.
If you like flavored lip balm, this is also a nice choice since it has a subtle mint scent and taste (but non-tingly on the lips). The balm's finish, worn alone, is a subtle, natural shine. Note: Because of the balm's texture it will melt/soften in high temps, so take care not to leave it in warm environments like the car in the summer or in direct heat e.g. a beach bag under the sun. - RLB
