A recent study by Orbit Complete found that 69% of people find women more attractive when they smile than when they are wearing makeup, and women generally smile more than men.
We were born to smile…literally: Babies start smiling in their sleep as newborns!
Young or old, no one wants a parched-looking pucker. Keep your lips moisturized this season with the lip products that make me smile:
What’s the lip product you can’t live without?
—By Amanda Downs, beauty intern
You might not be able to have a bite of the royal wedding cake, but you can slick on storied British brand Crabtree & Evelyn’s delectable Vanilla Créme Brûlée Lip Butter. The extra creamy shea-butter based formula tastes and smells true-to-life, like a decadent dessert—minus the calories!—and leaves behind just a hint of sheen. A treat truly fit for a princess!
On my last day as an intern at FITNESS last summer, beauty director Eleanor Langston pushed a handful of Korres Lip Butters into my hands. “You have to try these; they’re a beauty editor favorite,” she said.
She didn’t mention they were addictive! Since then, I haven’t left the house without a tub of the rich, buttery formula in tow. The product is perfect for winter lips in need of moisture. And, the tinted shades add just the right touch of shine for both every day and special occasions. You can even dab a little onto your cheeks for a natural flush of color. I love Wild Rose — the sheer, deep red is gorgeous — but there are six other great colors to choose from at just $10 each. What are your go-to winter lip products?
