This Sleep-In Lip Balm Promises Results That Rival Lip Injections
By Elise Minton Tabin , Executive Beauty Editor |
From the first moment that I tried Sara Happ’s The Lip Slip ($24), I was a fan. The lip balm that put Happ on the map, this super rich, extra glossy formula not only hydrates on contact, but also enhances the natural color of your lips and can be worn over or under pretty much any type of lip color. One swipe and I was hooked.
Over the years, Happ has introduced an array of lip-centric products, but it is her newest launch, The Dream Slip Renew ($32), that caught my eye, especially because I’m constantly on a quest to keep the results of my lip-plumping injectables intact.
As the name suggests, the nighttime-use, thick, matte balm (I’m beginning to notice a pattern here with Happ’s textures and formulations in that she favors thick—but not goopy—formulas that are actually comfortable on the lips and really deliver results) goes on like a typical lip balm in a pot. But here’s where it differs: it sinks into your lips, doesn’t stain your pillowcase and leaves you with the softest, fullest lips come morning.
I also paired it with Sara Happ Plump & Prime Lip Brush ($28), and come morning, my lips looked as good as they do in the first few days after being injected.
Think of this one like a night cream and an anti-wrinkle, plumping balm for your lips.
