Chapped lips are a pain. And with the southerlies a blowin’ in the captial this time of year, you’d better get used to dry, cracked lips. A good slathering of balm (especially before you go to bed) can soften you up. But if you’re beyond the point when balm can help, and you really want that ruby red lipstick to look its best, then this product will save you. It’s a gentle scrub for your lips that instantly and gently buffs away all the roughness.
I’ve been using the Mary Kay Lip Mask for a while, usually for special occasions (you need to leave it on for a mintue or so, so not an everyday kind of thing, I mean who has a minute to spare every day?). But today my boyfriend was complaining of chapped lips, so I made him try the Lip Mask. He’s not very receptive to me dousing his face in products (ever since a false eyelash incident where I accidentally glued his eyelids shut.) He was pleasantly surprised that the Mask was harmless, and even worked a treat. He is currently sporting satin-smooth lips without the stickiness and shininess of using a balm.
The scrub can take a bit of getting used to. It does feel a bit weird but well worth the results. And it is pricey – NZ$36.50. That’s more than I’d pay for a lip balm, and even a lipstick. But if you’re a lipstick junkie maybe it’s worth it to ensure your fave lippie looks its best on smooth lips.
Baileys Irish Cream is launching a new ad campaign, “Listen to your lips”, and they got renowned fashion photographer Rankin to create the print advertising images. The idea was to create iconic and contemporary images of individual lip looks.
PPP was lucky enough to get access to some of behind-the-scenes pics from the photo shoot (thanks Jayne!). Just look at the all the make-up artist’s lip colours!
All of the images taken during the day of the shoot were hung up on the wall below. Hundreds of lip shots were taken, but only 24 made the final cut.
I like the bottom left pic best. It looks sun-lit, gentle and natural, and not all bright-white teethy.
