LYS Beauty extends its Speak Love lip range with high-impact lipsticks and lip liners.
There’s nothing like gliding on a new lip product - watching the color build beautifully with each swipe. It’s the moment that pulls the entire look together in perfect unison. The finishing touches. The grand finale.
But, let’s be clear - how well you take care of your lips will ultimately determine how great they look with the product. And lip care often falls low in priority behind skin, body, and hair care.
Between exfoliating, hydrating, and protecting the lips, it can become a lot to keep up with. And a few days (err..months) of winter neglect can leave your lips thirsty for a refresh. Luckily for the Confidence Crew, we just released the newest products in the Speak Love range which boasts moisture rich matte lipsticks and richly pigmented lip liners to transform your lips without over drying them. Plus, we’re dishing our best-kept secrets for keeping lips soft, supple, and kissable all-year round for the most optimal look.
MEET THE NEWNESS:
Introducing the Speak Love Moisture Matte Lipsticks. These insanely bold creamy lipsticks that pack on the color, while giving lips much-needed hydration for maximum comfort. Because who says moisture and matte can’t coexist? This vegan formula comes in seven eye-catching shades, from berry rose to classic red and honey nude. Made to pair well with a diverse range of skin tones, these everyday lipsticks deliver a one-swipe color payoff that instantly draws the attention to the lips. Though the formula dries down to a soft, pillowy matte that’s comfortable on the lips, it’s enriched with soothing emollients to hydrate and condition lips during wear. The Chia Seed Oil and Hyaluronic Acid are a moisture-boosting duo, infusing lips with intensive, long-lasting hydration, while Maxi Lip helps to visibly plump the lips and reduce the appearance of fine lines in wrinkles. The end result? A full-coverage, natural matte lipstick that gives your lips lasting hydration and color, packed in a rose gold retractable bullet applicator for easy, mess-free storage.
Introducing Speak love Smooth Glide Lip Liners. Launching alongside the lipsticks, which stand the test of time on their own, are these irresistibly creamy lip liners that effortlessly outline, shape, and define the lips with pro-like precision. Velvety in texture and vibrant in color, these lip liners bring the lip look together, whether paired with the mattifying lipsticks, or a high-shine alternative like the Speak Love Glossy Lip Treatment Oil. They come in seven rich shades ranging from deep berry to rose pink and a classic dark brown. Complete with a pencil-like applicator, these liners can be sharpened to perfectly outline, or overline, the lips with ease without transferring, bleeding, or feathering. They contain castor oil, hyaluronic acid, and candelilla to preserve lip moisture in dry, chapped lips.
But, even with the most hydrating lip formulas, occasional upkeep is necessary to keep lips in tip-top shape.
LIP CARE FOR ANY AGE.
Similar to the delicate eye area, the lips are often one of the earliest places to begin showing visible signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, which can be attributed to collagen loss. While it’s a naturally occurring part of the aging process, there are a few best-practices for taking care of your lips, preventing excess dryness, and preserving overall moisture levels in the skin.
- Exfoliate often, but keep it gentle → If you deal with perpetually dry lips, exfoliating may be necessary. The lips are like every other area on the face, which benefits from occasional exfoliating to slough off any dead skin or build-up. In addition to ridding the lips of those dead skin cells, it also helps the hydrating ingredients found in the Speak Love range to penetrate deeper for long-lasting effects. For a simple, at-home DIY lip scrub, mix honey with raw sugar and coat lips for 5-10 minutes. Upon removing, gently rub the lips in small circular motions using your fingertips to stimulate blood flow and slough off any flakes.
- Double cleanse lips to remove long-wear lip products → After a long day of makeup, it is tempting to grab a makeup wipe to quickly remove the product from the face. However, most towelettes cause microtears on the skin and can lead to dryness. Instead, opt for a double cleanse makeup, which uses an oil-based cleanser to gently break down layers of complexion products and mattifying lip products before a traditional cleanser. Using this method on the lips will help reduce excess wear and tear on the lips caused by wipes.
- Make moisture a must→ Having a hydrating lip balm or treatment on-hand 24/7 is an easy way to preserve the lips natural moisture levels. Dehydration in the lips, or any skin, can accelerate visible signs of aging, as well as lead to cracking, flakiness, or discomfort. The Speak Love Glossy Lip Treatment Oil is designed to deeply restore lips with oil blends and vitamin E, while leaving behind a high-shine finish.
- Protect lips from the sun → If you’re a skincare junkie, you are likely aware of the importance of using sunscreen daily to protect your skin from dark sports, sun damage, and more severe conditions like skin cancer. But, the lips are often left unprotected. Incorporating a SPF lip balm into the routine throughout the day can help protect the lips from harsh UV rays.
