As high-end treatments for the face, eyes and neck continue to bombard the beauty market, it’s no surprise that ones for the lips are following suit. These luxury products for your pout go beyond the standard hydrating balm like ChapStick or Carmex, with claims of anti-aging, cell regeneration and a more plumped-up, radiant pucker. Below are three of the more decadent offerings.
No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil by Hourglass, a product from a Los Angeles-based company, is a blend of 14 oils, including clove and cherry pit, as well as a combination of a plant extract and a natural peptide that the company is calling Volulip. Its main selling point might be the container’s 24-karat gold-plated tip. ($42, sephora.com)
Kiss of the Sea
From the maker of the cult face cream, now comes Lip Balm by La Mer, made with an antifreeze protein found in marine life that will supposedly protect delicate lip skin from extreme conditions and smooth its texture. ($50, neimanmarcus.com)
