Get Lipstick-Ready Lips Overnight featured image

When lips are dry and rough, lipstick can look just plain terrible. I learned this the hard way, and I went without a solution for a couple years. I tried various lip treatments, most of them expensive, and nothing created the smooth skin needed for color to glide on beautifully. So I was shocked when I stumbled upon a drugstore fix.

I had purchased Neutrogena Lip Nutrition Honey Rescue Balm to use before bed because I’d frequently wake up in the middle of the night to dry, cracked lips. But after just a few nights, there was a fantastic side effect: I was waking up with smooth, soft lips, and my lipstick was looking 100 times better.

I have continued using this sweetly flavored balm every single night, and my lips have been lipstick-friendly ever since. I never use it right before lipstick application, because its glossiness would probably interfere with each lipstick’s respective finish. However, putting on a moderate amount of its honey, aloe and beeswax combo right before bed leads to amazing lip texture in the morning.
