Pucker up - Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and if you’re looking to get the most kissable lips, you’ve come to the right place. With romance in the air, you’ll want to ensure that your lips look and feel ready for that Valentine’s kiss. Here are some ways your pout can be prepared when Cupid’s arrow hits.
Soft, kissable lips start with hydration, which becomes increasingly difficult in the wintertime. For starters, make sure you are drinking plenty of water (bonus - this will help all of your skin to glow!). Being hydrated prevents dry, chapped lips from interfering with your smooch sessions.
Our lips have some of the most delicate skin on our bodies, so protecting them from outside variants is key. You want to create a waterproof barrier for your lips in order to lock in moisture. The most efficient balms will have ingredients like shea butter, beeswax, squalene, or lanolin and feel extremely luxurious on your lips.
Scrubs don’t just feel luscious on your skin, they help you to get silky smooth lips in the process. Sugar scrubs are one of the most popular forms, but there are also more advanced options such as chemical or enzymatic exfoliation. They are easy to use and feel great - just rub a small amount on your lips and you’ll feel the difference. La Parfait’s Vitamin C Cleanser is gentle yet effective and has a nourishing and luxurious feel that leaves the skin feeling clean and amazingly supple without being stripped of moisture. Just remember: scrubs are not the best idea for lips that are already chapped - the extra rubbing may worsen the condition. In that case, skip this step and stick to your balm to restore the condition of your lips.
And make it bold! It’s Valentine’s Day, so it’s a perfect chance to go red hot. Our B-Bold Satin Lipstick in Classic Red is a long-lasting, weightless lipstick that gives your pout the perfect hue. Or if you’re all about a pop of pink, our Legendary Pink shade is a burst of brightness that enhances your smile. Our creamy-textured lipsticks are infused with mineral oil, shea butter, and olive oil to provide essential hydration to your lips.
You may be planning on kissing for more than a little while - so you’re going to need lipstick with strength. La Parfait’s Matte Liquid Lipstick is a long-lasting, waterproof ultra-matte lipstick that will last on your lips all day long. Our formula has the staying power of a stain and the intense color of a liquid lipstick and is infused with olive fruit oil that will enhance your lips with vitamins and antioxidants (A, D, K and E) to keep your lips smooth, plump and moisturized. If you’re searching for the perfect red shade, we have a number of options - from Pure Red to Merlot Red and even a Classic Red that can be paired with the B-Bold lipstick.
You wouldn’t want gorgeous, kissable lips that aren’t actually kissable, so make sure your breath is nice and fresh for your partner! Brush and floss regularly, and keep mints handy on you so that when it’s time to move in close, your beautiful mouth will be ready. ;)
