One of my earliest memories from when I started beauty blogging was my very first ‘lemming’ product. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s basically a term to describe a product that you obsess over because you’ve seen countless people (or sometimes even just one) rave about it. For me, that product was the Lanolips lip ointment. I can remember at least 6 million people recommending this product (note: my mind may have slightly exaggerated this number) so I set off to hunt around the entire city (read: my local shopping centre) until I found it. I’m so glad that I discovered this because it’s been one of my favourite lip products for over a year now.
It’s quite a thick gloss but doesn’t feel tacky or sticky on the lips at all. It’s also quite long lasting and I find that if I apply it with my makeup in the morning, it usually lasts until morning tea time before I have to think about reapplying. The shade rhubarb is lovely and natural, and wears like a “your lips but better” colour on me. The only issue I have with this product is the packaging. The hard flat tip of the gloss makes it somewhat impossible (or at the very least rather uncomfortable) to apply directly to lips, it’s much easier to apply to your finger and then on the lips. The Lanolips Lip Ointment in Rhubarb retails for $13.95 AUD and is available for purchase from Adore Beauty online.
