At the moment I’m all about a statement lip and a matte formula used to be the way to go, however it tends to dry my lips so when I came across Mary Kay’s new lip collection I haven’t been able to look back since. Lets begin with my step-by-step on how to prep your lips for the perfect pout.
I begin with the satin lips shea sugar scrub which exfoliates and buffs away dry flaky skin. Formulated with Shea butter and the fresh flavour of white tea and citrus, it smells good enough to eat. I then apply my satin lips shea butter balm which moisturises and helps keeps them soft. This lip treatment is the perfect duo making it my go-to primer before applying my favourite lippie.
Satin Lips® sends your pout on a path to paradise for a spa-like treatment anytime, anywhere. Formulated with nourishing Shea butter and the fresh flavour of white tea and citrus. These products leave dry, chapped lips behind, delivering moisturizing bliss in two easy steps
