How to choose a cost-effective lip balm?
1. Do I need lip balm?
The answer is that it depends on the condition of your lips and the look of the touch-up required. If you have chapped lips or want a perfect lipstick, it is very important to use a lip primer as a smooth base to prepare your lips for the lipstick. In addition, the lip primer helps prevent feathers and wrinkles on the lipstick while providing long-lasting durability. You will get a perfect matte or smooth juicy look every time!
2. It should have a smooth and creamy texture
Texture is very important when it comes to choosing a good lip primer. Since one of the main purposes of a lip primer is to create a smooth base makeup for your lipstick, it should have the ability to nourish your lips. Therefore, a good lip primer should not have a dry texture. However, more moisturizing ingredients does not always mean that the product is good. Too much moisture can cause greasy lips and may sit on top of the lips. Therefore, it may result in a lipstick that is different from the lipstick you want.
Some lip base makeup can only be used on lips, but some products can be used as a base makeup for eyes and lips. For those who don't want to buy a separate base makeup to target different areas of the face, this is a good bonus choice. If you are looking for a convenient option, you may want to consider products that come in 2-in-1 form, such as elf primers that provide primer and plumping effects. Clinique Pop Lip Color + Primer is another good product that provides 20 different colors on different skin tones. If you want to add extra volume to your lips, a plump primer is a good choice. They can make the lips look fuller, and the base makeup can help lock in moisture, so you don't need a lip balm. They can be worn alone under the lipstick or even on the lipstick!
