Lip masks are about to become your bathroom cabinet staple. I know, they sound like an unnecessary step in your beauty routine, but not only does a well-chosen lip mask smooth a chapped pout, it will plump the lips too. So even if dryness is not a concern, pillowy lips are always preferential since the smoother your pout the easier it is for pencils and lipsticks to glide on and stay put. Often it's the dryness or the feathering of the lips that cause colour to wear quicker and more unevenly. "So why not just use a balm?" I hear you ask. Well, a lip balm is ideal for keeping soft lips hydrated, but if they are in need of a little TLC or you want to give them a plumping boost, then you need a mask.
Patchology FlashPatch Lip Gels ($50)
Another gel patch, these are super cooling on the skin and help soften the look of vertical lines around the lip edge that can cause your lipstick to feather. Niacinamide, peptides and green tea extract soothe the skin and protect from environmental damage (read: UV rays and pollution).
