Lip care for perfect lips, the right products


from Beatrice Serra

Almost abandoned the mask, between us and the lipstick there are no more obstacles. Unless, in the meantime, we have converted to an easier style or have opted, at least in the summer, for a refined but natural allure.

On the subject of mouth, this season, we are on the safe side, with the launch of even more perfected products halfway between lip care and soft make-up: balms, oils, glosses which moisturize and, at the same time, give a veil of color, just enough to make the lips more beautiful, smooth and turgid.

“These cosmetics came out at the right time, after two years and more of a mask, which dried and cracked the labial mucous membranes”, he tells us Luciano Bernardi, research and development manager of Diego Della Palma. «They contain moisturizing ingredients (hyaluronic acid and vitamin E), nourishing (vegetable oils) and plumping ingredients that relax, compact and lift (slightly) the mucosa».

There is an air of transparency

“The constant use of lip care creates the best basis for top-quality make-up, when we feel like it,” continues Bernardi. “Some, then, also have a volumizing effect (for the extract of chilli and ginger) or the sunscreen with a high Spf that does not fade the color of the lips, as happened in the past with similar products”.

For now, the credit of these sticks goes to theirs sparkling finishto thatlip gloss effect which is the beauty trend of the moment, in full 90s revival. The world of celebrities immediately took over.
