Get kissable with these lip balms
by Jennifer Dhanaraj

The festive season is also a season of love and intimacy.

What better way to celebrate the end of the year than to pucker up with your loved ones? But make sure those lips are soft and smooth.

Here are some options for those coveted kissable lips.


Confort Extreme Nutritive Lip Balm (15ml) by Sisley, $82

Packaged in a small pot, this lip balm can easily be applied throughout the day.

And besides repairing dry chapped lips with shea butter, the lip balm also claims to plump up the lips. Start working that pout.

Available at Takashimaya Departmental Store.


Watsons Medicated Treatment Lip Balm, $5.90

This handy lip balm includes fresh menthol for a refreshing feel - great for a quick after-work perk-me-up.

It's also supposed to be deeply moisturising and offers SPF 15 sunscreen to protect lips from the sun.

Available at all Watsons stores.

Kiss me tonight by philosophy, $23

With its creamy formula, this intense lip treatment claims that it helps keep lips soft and in a perfect kissable condition by softening roughness and soothing seriously dry lips.

It would also be good to apply this before applying lipstick to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Available at Tangs Orchard and all Sephora stores.

Fire & Ice/ Strawberry & Chocolate by Kisstixx, $19

Good for couples we reckon.

It comes in a package of two compatible lip balms - one for you and one for your partner.

The manufacturers claim that the two flavours combine to create a chemical reaction.

And for $19, you get two sets of lipbalms. So you get four in total. Sweet.

Available at

MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner, $28

While conditioning and moisturising lips, it also provides some colour like Fuschia Fix and Petting Pink.

The balm is also formulated with SPF 15 - so you can enjoy a day in the sun without worrying about your lips.

Available at all MAC stores.
