4 lip products to try this spring
With winter weather gone, renew your lips for spring with simple treatments and fun colors:
1. Most lip colors seen on celebs are custom- blended by makeup artists. Try that one-of-a-kind mixing at home with Mally Beauty Pro Tricks Lip Palette, with nine shades plus pearlizer and white and black shade modifier, $45; at mallybeauty.com.
2. Lipstick goes on more smoothly -- no flakes or bleed lines -- if you exfoliate lips before bedtime, removing pesky dead skin cells. Try Rodan & Fields Enhancements Lip Micro-Dermabrasion, $17; at rodanandfields.com.
3. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment, with SPF 15 sunscreen, comes in various shades (bold Berry, neutral Honey and delicate pink Petal), all with sugar, a natural humectant, keeping lips moisturized for up to six hours, $22.50; at select Sephora stores and fresh.com.
4. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Lip Repair Balm comes in a handy portable jar, so you can apply the moisturizing, rich gel formula (with its fresh eucalyptus scent) when and where you need it, $23; at select Macy's stores.
