About

I am a make-up artist and I find that on almost every job, someone asks me about their lips. “Why are my lips so dry?” is probably one of the most common questions that I am ever asked. It is then usually followed with “I’m always using lip balm”. When I ask people what they are using, it seems that EVERYONE is using a petroleum based product and it drives me CRAZY!! Applying a balm should moisturise lips not make them worse. However it seems these balms with petrolatum, paraffin, mineral oil – whatever you want to call it, are drying lips out even more…

I then get asked the question “so what should I be using?” to which I reply with whatever my current favourite GOOD lip balm is.

The Lip Liberation has been at the back of my mind and on so many to-do lists for sooo long, years in fact, that I have finally started it. At the moment it is a little blog with news and reviews about products and ingredients that will do right by your lips, but there are plans to take it further. One set of lips at a time…
