The Best Inexpensive Lip Balms

After my last post about my disappointment with EOS Lip Balm, my BFF and Brown Bombshell Beauty reader Arionne left a comment asking me what were some good, inexpensive lip balms. Check it out:

Q: Who has really great lip balm? My lips get dry very easily and need a balm that can keep me moisturized--that is affordable! Any advise? Please share. I like to moisturize before putting on gloss. - Arionne

I can totally relate to her dilemma. My lips are dry year round, so I'm constantly on the lookout for lip balms that will provide real moisture. Most cheaper lip balms are made with inexpensive ingredients that can actually sap lips of moisture. But I've found some great lip balms under $10 that have high-end ingredients that will keep your pucker super-moist! Here they are!

Korres Lip Butter, $9. This lip butter was my introduction to Korres products, and what a fabulous introduction it was! This creamy lip butter is made with uber-moisturizing shea butter and literally melts into your lips! It comes it six shades from clear (Guava) to deep red (Wild Rose), and it smells good enough to eat. A little tub lasts forever, so if you want a great lip butter Korres is a great place to start.

Smith's Rosebud Salve, $6. If you prefer a glossier lip balm, then Smith's Rosebud Salve is for you! This cult favorite can be found in many a makeup artists kit, and for good reason. It's ability to instantly moisturize and glossify your lips is uncanny. Which is why I've purchase more of these than I can count over the years. It gives you lips a glossy sheen and the slightest pink tint, while delivering lots of moisture. Give it a go (Stick with the Classic version. The newer versions are only so-so), and you won't be dissapointed.

Yes to Carrots C Me Smile Lip Butter, $3.79. This is the best drugstore lip balm I've come across. Not only is it super-portable, but it's moisturizing without being too greasy or caked up. It just sinks right into your lips. This 95% organic lip butter is made with shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, sunflower oil and vitamin E. Whew! Is there any wonder why I love it?
