Hello Lip Lover

Monday, April 7, 2014 14 0



I am very particular about the lip products I use.  My lips are always dry, lipsticks always crease in the fine lines in my pucker, and I constantly lick my lips, so even “long-lasting” lipsticks are not so “long-lasting” on me.  Regardless of whether I’m wearing a gloss, balm, stain or lipstick, I’m always in need of something that is moisturizing.  I was intrigued when I was asked to try out Lancôme’s new Lip Lover collection, which has colour, shine and care, all wrapped into one pretty little package.  I had no idea just how much I would fall in love with this “lip-changing” product.


The comfort of a balm. The refined colour of a lipstick. The shaping shine of a gloss.  Lancôme’s Lip Lover is really everything that I could ask for.


Oh Lancôme Lip Lover, how do I love thee?  Let me count the ways:

1. I love your colour.  Available in 21 shades, Lip Lover is infused with lipstick pigments, so the colour is deep, and it doesn’t feather like many other lipsticks/glosses that I’ve tried.

2. I love your lip care.  I typically apply lip balm before I put any other type of product on my lips, however, when I first tried Lip Lover, I put it directly on my pucker even though my lips were dry and chapped.  It’s non-sticky texture provided instant moisture to my lips and lasted for several hours.  Lip Lover has now replaced my lip balm in my daily routine.

3. I love your fragrance.  The most surprising element of trying out the Lip Lover collection was the delicious fragrance to the product.  The Basic Chic shades have a scent of rose petals with a hint of vanilla and juicy raspberry, while the Creative Chic colours have notes of opulent rose with iris and violet.  Both scents are heavenly.

4. I love your applicator.  With a unique flexible arrow shape, the applicator applies the perfect amount of product to my lips, and allows me to easily define the contours and maneuver around the corners of my lips.


I’m confident that you’ll love Lancôme’s Lip Lover just as much as I do.  For you lovely Canadian ladies interested in trying out this fabulous product, Lancôme is offering 10% off & free shipping on any purchase on Lancome.ca with the promo code LIPLOVER until April 25.  They are also offering a fun contest for you to win your favourite shade of Lip Lover.  Simply visit www.liplover.ca, scroll to the bottom of the page, select your favourite shade of Lip Lover and fill out the ballot. It’s that easy.

    Thanks for the tip! I have the same problem with dry lips so I’m always looking for options that don’t make my flaky lips look worse.

    I totally trust that you know what you’re talking about when it comes to good lip colour. I’m exciting to check out the Lancome booth the next time I’m at the mall.
