It is no secret that I have a nearly irrational penchant for lip products, and great lip balms are among my most coveted beauty staples. I love to maintain soft and supple lips, and tend to reapply my trusted lip balms frequently in order to achieve this end. Painted Earth's New Phase Anti-Aging Lip Balm is less of a traditional lip balm and more of an anti-aging lip treatment, and while it shares hydration in common with lip balms, it also promotes collagen production, cellular repair, and tingle and sting-free lip plumping. The texture is light and soaks into the lips quickly, but leaves just enough behind to protect the lips. The flavor is a light vanilla accompanied by what smells like a light and pleasant fruity floral, but it fades soon upon application. This is a wonderful treatment to be worn during the day or night, and alone or as a base for lipstick. When I apply it before going to bed I really notice how soft, supple and plumped my lips are when I wake up. It's pretty fabulous, actually. While it is pink in the tin it imparts no color to the lips per se, but I do note that the color of my naturally pink lips tends to be further accentuated by this balm. I suspect that it is the mild plumping effect coupled with the increased circulation that causes this pleasant effect. Additionally, New Phase Anti-Aging Lip Balm contains Matrixyl 3000, a potent anti-aging ingredient that is used in many skincare products, to help stave off the ravages of time. I also suspect that this will do wonders to soften vertical lip lines.
According to Painted Earth:
New Phase is a protective and proactive product that promotes collagen production, cellular repair, hydration, DNA integrity and replication, and increased circulation for deeper pink full lip tissue. The formula for this product reaches saturation point, relying on the most medically advanced and clinically proven ingredients on the market today.
