Be Fine Be Lips! ($25)
Be Fine Lip Exfoliator Banish the effects of daily stress on your lips while enhancing their natural color. Pineapple enzymes exfoliate and reveal fresh new skin for soft baby lips. Contains emollients, botanical extracts and vitamins to smooth, condition and moisturize.
Be Fine Lip Serum Enjoy shiny kissable lips with Chamomile & Beets delivering smoothness and ultra sheet tint. Palm peptides plump up and tighten skin around the lips while renewing the collagen and protecting from the effects of UVA.
Be Fine Be Lips! comes with both a lip exfoliator and lip serum to help keep your lips looking and feeling soft and smooth.
Be Fine Lip Exfoliator has a cream-like texture with tiny grains to slough off the dead skin. There weren’t very many grains in the exfoliator so it didn’t feel very rough. It mostly felt as if I was rubbing cream on my lips. I don’t know if it tasted good or bad, because I didn’t lick my lips. It did, however, have a scent. It smelled like wheat? or at least something grain-like. Overall, due to the low amount of grains, Be Fine Lip Exfoliator felt very gentle. Some people may feel their lips weren’t exfoliated enough due to the lack of grains. For me, since I don’t like for my lips to feel raw, the Be Fine Lip Exfoliator was perfect.
The Be Fine Lip Serum reminds me of clear gloss. It smelled very good and left my lips feeling moisturized. The serum didn’t sting or irritate my lips. It didn’t feel too thick or sticky either. I didn’t find anything particularly special about it or anything that made it stand out against other lip serums.
Available online and at Ulta

Palladio Tinted Lip Balm ($3.99) Palladio Tinted Lip Balm is enriched with UV filters to protect the lips, this unique lip balm formula moisturizes while adding sheer, long-lasting color. Wear these lip balms by themselves, or under your favorite Palladio Herbal Lipstick as a hydrating base!
Eeee…! (That’s the sound of me squealing with excitement) LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! You have no idea how happy it makes me when a lip balm actually works. The Palladio Tinted Lip Balm is amazing! The lip balm is long lasting and moisturizing. The best part? It gives a pop of color to your lips at the same time. It’s a lip balm, lipstick, and lipgloss all rolled into one. Gotta love multi-purpose products.
Like I mentioned earlier, the lip balm provides long lasting moisture to your lips. It goes on very smoothly and doesn’t leave behind a waxy residue or texture like most lip balms do. The pigmentation of the tinted lip balm is wonderful also. They aren’t super pigmented like full finish lipsticks, but they aren’t super sheer. The shine the Palladio Tinted Lip Balm provides is also perfect. It’s not goopey and sticky like lipglosses. I would say the color and shine lasts about 2-3 hours. I also didn’t notice any strange scent or taste. I cannot give Palladio enough props for making this product. This shall go onto my favorite product list.
Available at Sally Beauty Supply and online.

Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm ($3) Give your lips the soothing feeling they deserve. This natural lip balm is loaded with coconut and sunflower oils, rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, to nourish, condition and soften lips. Beeswax seals in hydration. We’ve even added peppermint oil for a refreshing tingle.
For years, I have heard how wonderful and amazing Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm was so I finally decided to give it a try. I don’t think it lived up to the hype. I had to reapply every hour because the lip balm wasn’t very moisturizing. I think it was just too waxy. I felt the lip balm just sat on top of my lips instead of being absorb. Also, the waxiness made it difficult to apply, and I felt like I was tugging the lip balm across my lips. Not a smooth application at all. Besides that, I noticed the the minty tingling effect would dry out my lips. Truthfully skip Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm, because there are so many better and cheaper lip balms available.
Softlips Limited Editon Winter Flavors ($9.99 5-pack) Softlips is the line of premium lip conditioners designed with skin-protecting ingredients to help keep lips soft, supple and healthy. Available in several flavor varieties, Softlips Lip Balm with SPF 20 offers superb coverage and protection from the environmental elements, as well as a healthy sheen without the heavy waxiness or stickiness of traditional lip balms.
Just like the original Softlips, the winter edition Softlips are awesome! There are five different winter flavors in the winter edition pack: Sugar & Spice, Sugar Plum Berry, Sugar Cookie, Winter Mint, and Mint with a Hint of Vanilla. Don’t you just love the names? My favorite is Sugar Plum Berry. It smells like a sweet candy store. Yum! The packaging is sleek and simple. It’s thin so it doesn’t take up a lot of room, and you can slip it in your pants pocket. The balm goes on silky smooth and doesn’t leave back any residue. It has SPF 20 which is great because lips need protection from the harmful sun too even during the holidays.
EOS Lip Balm Smooth Sphere ($3.29) eos lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, eos keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.
I am quite the lip balm fanatic. I am almost never without one. So, when I spotted the eos lip balm sphere I had to have it. The lip balm isn’t heavy or feel waxy. However, it wasn’t as moisturizing as I had hoped it would be. The packaging is definitely a conversation starter. The sphere shape makes it really easy to apply and it covers my entire lip. I like all of the scents and flavors that it comes in. They are not too strong and smell nice. I hate that I can’t slip this into my pocket because of its big size and odd shape. I also don’t like how when you get to the bottom of the lip balm it becomes flat. This makes it really difficult to apply. Would I repurchase? Chances are no. I feel it’s overpriced. There are better lip balms that are much cheaper.
