I put one of Paul & Joe’s three new $18 Lip Treatment Balms (which they refer to as “flavors”) on my lips before bed last night, and when Tabs woke me up this morning (and BTW, he’s been biting me lately!), I ended up with cat hair all up in my grill. #catladyproblems
This clear balm is so long-lasting, so thick and so rich that it stays put the ENTIRE evening, all through the night, and lasts so long that you can still feel it on your lips the next morning.
And after plucking all the hair from my lips (why is this tabby so furry?!), my lips looked great and felt fantastically soft, smooth and flake-free.
They work in two ways at the same time — as both a lip treatment and as a primer for lipsticks (but you can, of course, also wear them without other products). Paul & Joe infused them with moisturizing olive oil, and they create a smooth surface for additional lip colors. The formula is very sticky and sits right at skin level, which may be one of the reasons for their incredible wear time.
The three “flavors” include a pink and white floral tin containing a spearmint and sweet almond balm, a limited edition bee-bedecked tin containing a ginger and honey balm (don’t worry, the ginger is more sweet than spicy), and a blue and pink floral tin containing an Earl Grey tea, bergamot and lemon balm, and I’m happy to say that I think each one smells and tastes just like its description.
Look for them on Paul & Joe counters and b-glowing.com this October.
