la mer the lip balm

While I tend to be a savvy shopper 95% of the time, I sometimes do get a little swayed by a good sales pitch.

After hearing that this balm was a favorite of Jennifer Garner, countless other celebs, and many a beauty editor pick, I (of course) wanted to check it out and see for myself.

I picked one up a few months ago...while getting my usual Creme de la Mer supply...and have been using it ever since.

It's definitely a winner for me.

The way that it makes my lips feel soft waaaayyyyy after it's disappeared is nothing short of cool.

It's also lasted a good long time, considering I'm still working on the same container that I bought back in early March. The fact that I relegate this item to my makeup bag helps to curb the constant application that I would be doing if it was just sitting in my beauty closet upstairs though, I must admit.

The only clunker?

It's a definite splurge at $45.

But so worth it to me.

What about you...are there any products that you just have to have even though they are a little on the splurge-y side? Leave a comment and let me know!

hmm, I don't think I could do it for lip balm. i will spend anything on products that will get rid of acne and have good reviews. clarisonic, pricey oils, potions etc.

Eye cream. now if I found one that I really truly loved, I would move mountains. i haven't found it yet though. boo!
