LA MER THE LIP BALM – I have a confession to make. Although I can’t really justify spending so much ($45) on a lip balm, this is my absolute favorite.Â The subtle greenish yellow color, the soft texture, and the smell and taste of it – gooey, minty, almost sweet – speaks to me.Â Since there is no SPF and no color, it is really not ideal as a daytime product. It is best suited for night time use. It’s also not a good size to carry around in your bag – comes in a flat round jar that is much wider in circumference than a typical lip balm. These traits render it for me an unnecessary luxury.Â
FINAL VERDICT – ICW (It Can Wait) – It’s lovely for sure, but I can’t get around the price, and if you’re going to invest in La Mer, the emulsion or the foundation are better investments that just a lip balm.
