Marc Jacobs Beauty Lip Lock Moisture Balm ($24) is a new buttery lip balm that launched with Marc Jacobs new makeup collection. I’m terrible about touching up my gloss and lipstick as the day progresses but I chronically apply lip balm every minute on the minute so I keep a few in my desk drawer at work and of course, on my night stand, vanity, and even on top of my desk while I work.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Lip Lock Moisture Balm is expensive but if you like products like Fresh Lip Treatment you’re bound to adore this stuff.
If anything at all Marc Jacobs Beauty Lip Lock Moisture Balm is actually better than Fresh Lip Treatment but unfortunately you’re forgoing the tint for the extra moisture here. So if you want tint in your balm this isn’t going to be something you love.
I strongly advise against ordering this online if you live in a hot, humid environment or during the Summer months as it’ll arrive a melted mess.
This comes in a simple, understated black and silver tube. The cap actually screws on and off so don’t attempt pulling the cap off, you have to unscrew it. And be sure to screw it back on once you’re done! Be aware of where you store it and how you travel with it because again, it will melt…I don’t suggest tossing it in your tote, leaving said tote in the car for a few hours….you get my meaning I’m sure
It contains an SPF 18 and is made from exotic oils and butters such as shea, avocado, andiroba, etc…! Some might call it a glorified chapstick but try it once and you’ll see it’s any but.
This is a buttery balm that glides onto lips easily and leaves behind a lightweight highly moisturizing film across lips. It feels luxurious on and keeps lips smooth, soft, and supple. Application daily will likely heal drier lips and prevent chapped ones from occurring. It’s very emollient so it melts as you apply and leaves behind a high sheen. It has a subtle minty taste which isn’t overpowering. I liked how soft my lips felt during the wear and well after it wore away my lips still felt smooth and hydrated.
Overall, Marc Jacobs Beauty Lip Lock Moisture Balm is pricey but well worth that extra dollar in my opinion! If you suffer from chronic dry lips this is one balm you should have it around.
