This might seem obvious to some of you, but I had a breakthrough realization yesterday. Two lip balms I’ve been loving – Fresh sugar lip treatment and strawberry Chapstick – are almost totally used up. I sadly looked toward the trash can, and realized there was plenty useable product left, even though it dips below the plastic lip. I reached for my (almost never used) lip brush, and I love it! Lip brushes give you amazing precision, and you waste a lot less product.
If you think it’s too high maintenance to use a lip brush for chapstick, you’re right, but you’re also wrong. I wouldn’t pack my long-handled Sephora Pro lip brush in my clutch, but Obessive Compulsive Cosmetic’s pint-sized lip brushes that come along with their awesome Lip Tars are the perfect size.
