For the past year, I've kind of gone of lipgloss when I dress up, Its all about lipsticks now, and I am on the verge of growing my collection. So these are my top five lip products, I absolutely love them.
For your lip product to sit well on you lips and look stunning, it needs a clean and smooth canvas. You will not hear this enough, Lip exfoliation should be one of the most important things in the life of a beauty conscious woman. I think everyone, boys, girls, old, young, should exfoliate their lips at least 3 time a week.
Wet a tooth brush with warm water and gently brush your lips to exfoliate it.
Use a lip scrub, I use Lush bubble gum lip scrub.

Or You can make your own lip scrub,
You will need
1. Granulated Sugar preferably brown
2. Olive oil
3. Side Plate
Scoop a tea spoon of the sugar and then a tea spoon of the olive oil and mix them well together on the side plate.
Using a clean finger, apply the mixture unto you lips.
Firmly but gently rub the mixture over your lips. The sugar acts as a scrub and removes the dead skin whiles the oil penetrates an moisturise your lips
Do it about a minute on both the upper and the lower lip, or you can repeat the process till your mixture finishes, then use a warm and wet towel to remove the mixture from you lips.
Apply a moisturising lip balm, and that is it.
If you have tin lips and would like a fuller looking mouth, then when using tip one, apply pressure with the tooth brush, this will cause blood to rush to your mouth.
After Apply excess moisturising lip balm and go into the a hot shower. Let the pressure from the water beat your lips, this will cause the lips to be hydrated and soak the moisturiser better.
Meaning a more plump and full lips.
For soft and smooth lips, before going to bed, use tip one or two and instead of normal lip balm, use you moisturising body lotion. But a lot of that on you lips and just sleep. By the time you wake up the product should have penetrated your lips, just wash it off and apply your preferred lip product.
All these tips will give you a soft, and beautifully smooth lips. If you intend to wear any shade of lipstick especially red or nude, you've got to spare us all the dreadful sight of cracked, chapped lips and follow the tips.
p.s sun is out so get a lip balm with at least SPF10 to avoid pigmented lip colour,
If you have any other tips, I would love to know, so please share them.
