I am in search for the most awesome chapstick haha
I have tried a couple of chapsticks, and I really never liked any! haha
Anddddd buying a chapstick that's expensive like the Dior one or La Mer one is totallyyyy out of the question xD
Well, I DO use my Korres Lip Balm and I love it to pieces, but it's in a POT, and I really was looking more for a STICK where it won't be inconvenient to apply when I'm out and I don't have some napkin to wipe my fingers on after application. Korres Lip Balm is REALLY nice though. Definitely moisturizes my lips without getting waxy on me like most chapsticks.
One chapstick I've been eying and hearing good things about is the Nivea Lip Care A Kiss Of Moisture:

What do yall think?
I have already tried Burt's Bees and I found it WAY too WAXY and somehow made my chapped lips even more chapped!!! xD
As for the regular Chapstick brand, I feel like it makes my lips addicted to it, making me use more and more to maintain my lips versus repairing my lips and just using it whenever I need to.
Alright if the chapstick is super duper promising with each and every application, I think I can shell out like $10 ish, but I really would prefer drugstore brand!
I guess let me list out some I'm aware of that's in the market and yall can say yay/nay to them or suggest me some yourselves :) Please do help me out! xD haha (and it'll help anonymous readers too ^.^ )
O and btw, I really do not want to buy the EOS lipbalm because it's so round and I just want something small to slip into my purse lol
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Lip Moisturizer SPF 15
Neutrogena Naturals Lip Balm
Aveeno Essential Moisture Lip Conditioner
Softlips Lip Protectant
Yes to Carrots Conditioning Lip Butter with SPF 15
Alba Hawaiian Lip Balm
Covergirl Natureluxe Gloss Balm
Alright, I'm putting in the high priced lip balms here just in case! haha . Chapsticks last quite a long while and if I use it regularly and it keeps my lips happy then I *think* I can shell out money for an essential item.

Fresh Lip Treatment SPF 15 $22.50
Dior Addict Lip Glow $28 OUCH :(
Smashbox Lip Treatment SPF15 $16 (reasonably priced for a high end)
Mk I think that's what I have gathered so far as the chapsticks and lip balms I have come across and am curious about! Yes, I have read makeupalley reviews but I still want to hear more before purchasing (especially if it's high end!) I remember NaTGN reviewed TONS of lip balms HERE.
The ones from her list that I am very tempted to get is either the Aquafina, Nivea that I listed above, or the Fresh lipbalm.
Gah, I'm so tempted! I think maybe as a college student, I should save and get the Aquafina. What do yall think?
See yall later :)
