One of my favorite lip tricks is to use Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips, mixed with eyeshadow, to highlight my lips. I first started doing this last winter- I had a shade of lipstick that I wished was metallic. I found an eyeshadow that would be perfect over it, the only problem was that it wouldn’t stay on my lips. So… I mixed it with some Dr. Lipp balm, and it stayed just as long as the lipstick!
With the ombre look being so hot now, I decided to try this trick with a modern twist. This can also be used to enhance and make your lips look “poutier.”
First, I exfoliated, then applied some of the balm to my bare lips. This allows for easier blending and smoother application. Then I put on lipstick.
Next, select an eyeshadow (or blush, or other pigment) you want to use. I chose the shade Jardin from the Too Faced A’ La Mode palette.
Next, I put the eyeshadow on my hand, like doing a swatch. I actually tried doing this on paper so I could get a better photo of mixing it up, but it just didn’t work on paper.
Once you put the eyeshadow on your hand, put a dab of Dr. Lipp balm on the end of a lip brush (I actually prefer a Make Up For Ever mini eyeshadow brush for my lips), and mix it up with the eyeshadow.
Finally, dab the mixture onto your lips, and voila!

Is this better then the Bite agave lip mask?
Hi Kimberly! They’re both equally great products. When my lips are severely chapped, I use the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask at night since it will stay on until I wake up. But, the Dr. Lipp balm is also very moisturizing, and it’s SO versatile. With my dry lips, they are both a must!
