As a lover of all things beauty, I know a good, styled look is incomplete until the lips are moist to perfection. Maintaining hydrated lips is undoubtedly a year-round priority. Still, with summer approaching fast and fall soon coming with cooler weather creeping in, I want to ensure you are ready to strut the streets in a lip-nourished way. Taking the old reliable Blistex and Vaseline with you is never a bad idea because chapped lips are a big no-no. Truthfully, those two often come with the task of frequent reapplication and underwhelming and sometimes greasy results. Thankfully, times have evolved, and there are Black Women-owned beauty brands that have prioritized our rich melanin and the ultimate hydration of our lips.
These six beauty products will keep your lips shiny no matter what the temp and best belief, heads will turn, and your lips will thank you!
