#BigLipstickEnergy: Overnight Lip Balms for the Best Beauty Sleep Ever

Are you team lip balm or lip mask?

I'm a serial lipstick dater. So many lip products slide onto my desk. Some I double-tap and have all the heart eyes for. Others I ghost and leave on seen. This is #BigLipstickEnergy, an honest breakdown of how I feel about the latest lip launches. Read on for the three lipstick flings I'm keeping in rotation for now. Next week, I'll have a new roster.

$24.00

THE DETAILS: 

This nighttime balm has a completely clean formula full of good things that grow from the earth: agave nectar, pomegranate extract, jojoba, sunflower, and safflower seed oil, to name a few. Its creamy balm-to-oil consistency cloaks your lips in hydration that lasts for hours. And if you're a sucker for scent, know that it smells as if bergamot and chamomile have a baby. Before you read any further, here's a lil' secret: you can wear lip masks during the day, too.  

WHY I'M OBSESSED: 

Back when flying was a thing, this balm would never leave my bag. In-flight air usually gets the best of my inherently dry skin, leaving me with chapped lips no matter how many times I  re-apply lip balm. That is, until this lip mask came into my life. The sensorial effect is what really keeps me coming back: The silky, buttery texture, addicting scent, and most of all, the comforting moisture. These days, I've been sticking to a mostly vegan diet in an attempt to put some parameters on my quarantine routine, and naturally, that has me showing my vegan skincare products even more love. Thanks to this balm which I smooth on every night before bed, I wake up with cushiony lips.

THE DETAILS: 

This little pink pot is packed with avocado, almond, and apricot seed oil, so it doesn't skimp on hydration. It's a cult K-beauty favorite and loved by legendary YouTuber Michelle Phan, who uses it every night. If you're searching for a flaky lips solution that lasts and keeps dryness at bay, this is it: the formula's pillow-soft texture preps and primes lips and leaves behind a smooth veil of moisture. 

WHY I'M OBSESSED: 

I discovered this lip mask back in 2018, when it was one of the top 10 products that won the Soko Glam Best of K-Beauty Awards. What I love most is a little goes a long way, meaning this pot might look small but it's mighty. The rich, weighty, and thick texture does all of the heavy lifting in the hydration category, so all you need is one layer then you're good to go. Your lips will feel so supple and look naturally plump. Thank me later.

$20.00

THE DETAILS: 

This overnight balm is made with a whole lot of vitamin C, berries, and antioxidants to deeply nourish and soften the sensitive skin on your lips. The vitamin C gently exfoliates to slough away the dead skin cells you can't see, but are there. If you deal with dryness all year long, a nightly layer of this should improve things dramatically. 

WHY I'M OBSESSED: 

When a balm is hyped up by all my fellow beauty editor friends, I know it must be something. It's so good that I have one on my desk, in my work bag, on my coffee table—my quarantine work station—and on my nightstand. I'm undoubtedly obsessed. And it gives my lips a sumptuous shine that can't be rivaled. (Disclaimer: you may be tempted to lick your lips because of its sweet candy scent—don't say I didn't warn you.)
