When temperatures drop below zero, Iâ€™m tempted to suspend my daily beauty routine and go for whateverâ€™s quickest and easiest. But I was more than happy to swap my basic ChapStick for the sweet, simple line of lip pick-me-ups from Lucy B Cosmetics. The line focuses on the healing art of the ancient Australian apothecary, and founder Lucy Baldock says the Australian bush flower essences and organic essential oils used in her products â€œhelp rid the body of toxic emotions, fears and imbalances through vibrational healing.â€ Like a sweet dessert thatâ€™s actually good for you, Lucy Bâ€™s balms smell and taste great. The ultrashiny Fresh Juice glosses from the Stung Lips line ($16) are infused with a warm blend of vanilla and melon. I love Coconut Kiss, a bronzey shimmer that outlasts any gloss Iâ€™ve ever used while moisturizing my lips.
If shine isnâ€™t your thing, give the Tinted Lip Balm ($17) a whirl. The little pots of stain serve up just enough of a color punch, and theyâ€™re packed with vitamin E- try the pinky-brown Nudie for a natural look that works with all skin tones. Find it at BeautyHabit.com.
