My Obsession With Lip Balms

Ever since as long as I can remember, I've been addicted to lip balms. Before I developed an interest in skincare and makeup, lip balms were no.1 in my life!

I've compiled a list of my all time favourite lip balms. Each one is loved for entirely different reasons than the next.

Best For : Luxurious Feeling Lips
Eve Lom Kiss Mix

Contains: Natural sunscreen and cooling menthol.

This lip balm has a minimalist white packaging and is compact enough to fit easily into your pocket.

The product itself is a thick creamy white balm. It has one of the thickest textures of lip balm i have come acress. It is super smooth and feels luxurious on the lips.

It has a gorgeous mint scent and leaved the lips with a slight tingly feeling. It keeps lips feeling super hydrated and soft. The tingly sensation and scent leaves me feeling uplifted and fresh.

Best For: Beautiful Looking Lips
Tokyo Milk Bon Bon Lip Balm in Candied Violette

Contains: Sunflower seed oil. Vitamin E, Aloe Vera & Shea Butter.

This lip balm is beautifully packaged and available in a variety of fun flavours including; 'Let Them Eat Cake', 'Petit Fours Glace' and 'Iced Green Tea'.

Candied Violette has a sugar floral scent and tastes sweet. It's super smooth and slightly glossy. It provides nice hydration without feeling too greasy.

I love it because it leaves lips looking so plump, lusciously kissable and healthy looking.

Best: Packaging
Figs & Rouge 100% Organic Balm

My favourite out of the Figs & Rouge balms is the Pomegranate. It has a lovely fruity scent and taste.

It's a little grainy at first touch but melts into a smooth balm. I love the beautiful vintage inspired packaging and gorgeous scent. It's a true joy to look at and carry around. I love the fact that it's 100 organic, and it's multi-purpose use is a bonus.

Best For: Very Dry Chapped Lips
eos Lip Balm in Sweet Mint

95% organic, 100% natural. Contains: Shea Butter, Vitamin E & Jojoba oil.

This lip balm has a fun egg shape that applies straight onto the lips (so no finger dipping and worries about germs!)

It has an amazing fresh minty scent and taste (my husband is a big fan). Sometimes in extreme changes of weather, my skin becomes super sensitive and my lips feel extra dry and prickly. I'm not sure which ingredient exactly makes this lip balm so good, but it immediately soothes and hydrates my lips when no other lip balm can. As a fan of natural cosmetics, I also love that this lip balm is 100% natural.


  1. I'm totally obsessed with lip balm too >.< My fav is Burts Bees~ I really want to get the mint EOS lip balm!! I have the lemon one and it's awesome!

  2. I have the summer fruit and the tangarine eos lipbalms. ^^ They're really nice!

  3. I love eos balms... I really hate finger-dipping but sometimes get potted balms/glosses just because they're so cute :)

  4. I can't live without a lipbalm, lol. the tokyo milk one looks really nice, I like the packaging. my favourite one is kanebo but sadly it doesn't smell very nice.

  5. you aren't the only one addicted to lip balms dear! i suffer from the same problem haha. :) though i still haven't really found my HG lip balm. thanks for sharing the list of your favorites! :)

  6. Heh I was quite a lipbalm addict back in school when that was the only "makeup" we were allowed to wear.
    My favourite right now is Jack Black balm in lemon flavour. Smells SOOOOOO good!!!

  7. Great post! I'm addicted too :)

  8. I love natural lip balms too:)

  9. You make me really wanting the tokyo milk!!:)

  10. BUDDHA BALM is what I have been using lately. I too cannot do the finger dipping thing. BUDDHA BALM is the best I've used ever.

  11. Tokyo Milk looks enticing! I thought they only did perfumes...

  12. EOS sweet mint is my SO's favorite, too!
    i still think Rosebud salve works best for me, but i'd love to try one of the Fig & Rouge lip balm.;)

  13. Thanks for sharing your collection. I love lip balms and the first one sounds really good, i think i'll look into that one! The Tokyo packaging is so so pretty!! I think I would have bought it just for the box!
    As for Eos, my fruit berry one wasn't that moisturising, but the packaging was cute. I tend to like stick balms because of hygiene reason, I hate using my fingers! .x.
