That I am a lip balm fanatic is a known fact, and as the weather cools down my reliance on quality lip balms reaches a fever pitch. Furthermore, I have been wearing lipsticks a great deal lately, and high quality lip balms are my go-to lip-bases to keep my lips protected and prepped.
Lately I have found myself reaching for 3 Painted Earth products repeatedly to keep my lips in tip-tip shape: New Phase Anti-Aging Natural Lip Balm, Lip Stuff Blackberry & Pomegranate and SuperWear Waterproof Gel Lip Liner Invisible.
New Phase Anti-Aging Natural Lip Balm ($16.50. Reviewed here): 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.
This is NOT your smoke screen lip plumper where results are negligible at best. The results of this top shelf formula are deeply gratifying. You will feel relieved, exuberant and renewed. Give your number one beauty accessory a massive upgrade.
Painted Earth's New Phase Anti-Aging Lip Balm is a seriously divine anti-aging balm that is less of a traditional lip balm and more of an anti-aging lip treatment. As I noted in my initial review, "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 silky smooth, and it soaks into the lips rapidly, and it leaves just enough product on the lips to keep them moistened and protected.
The flavor is a scrumptious light vanilla and pleasant fruity floral, but it fades soon upon application. This is a wonderful anti-aging lip treatment that can be worn during the day or night, and alone or as a lipstick base. When I apply it before going to bed I really notice how soft, supple and plumped my lips are when I wake up. 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.
Ingredients: Organic Ricinus Communis (Castor Seed Oil), Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil), Organic Beeswax, Vanilla Flavoring, Matrixyl 3000, Palmitoyl Triepeptide-3, Globularia Cordifolia Callus Culture Extract (plant stem cells), d-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Silk Protein Amino Acid Blend (Sodium L-Pyrrolidone Carboxylate, Sodium Lactate, L’Arginine, L-Aspartic Acid, L-Pyrrolidonecarboxylic Acid, Glycine, L-Alanine, L-Serine, L-Valine, L-Proline, L-threonine, L-Isoleucine, L-Histidine, L-Phenylalanine).
Lip Stuff Blackberry & Pomegranate ($3.00): Lips feel as pampered and luxurious as they look. Preservative-free.
This delicious lip balm as taken up residence in my purse because it is so wonderfully moisturizing, and fuss free. It leaves my lips deeply hydrated, soft, supple, and lipstick ready. It is wonderful worn alone, or as a lipstick base.

SuperWear Waterproof Gel Lip Liner Invisible ($19.50): Define and Line for the Perfect Pout. Prolong wear and emphasize the look of any lipstick with our waterproof gel lip liner, super soft, glides on smoothly, blends easily before setting to a budge-proof finish. Our super creamy, pigmented gel lip liner pencil is the ultimate smooth, smudge-proof easy to apply lip liner formula.
Extremely long wearing, waterproof formula glides onto lips for transfer-proof, non-feathering wear for up to 7 hours. Super soft formula never feels dry or cakey, provides a precision line and dries down to impart a professional look to the lips.
SuperWear Waterproof Gel Lip Liner Invisible is the perfect solution for keeping super pigmented lipsticks from migrating or feathering, and it increases wear-time. As Painted Earth suggests, it glides on smoothly and effortlessly before it sets, but once it does it really is budge-proof. This is a must-have if you love bold lipsticks and want to keep them from bleeding, feathering, and to increase the wear-time.

Overall Assessment: I have yet to be disappointed by Painted Earth products. In fact, the longer I use their products the more that I love this wonderful line. These three products get so much use that I predict that I will have to replace all of them in a few months.
