My lips are quite demanding.
Leave them to their own devices – for even a short period of time – and they get a bit huffy. Rebelling and quickly turning from silky smooth into something resembling a lunar landscape.
Which is why I have been known to turn around and head home should I swap handbags and find I’ve gone out without a lip balm within easy reach.
Even now as I write this, I’m conscious that my lips could do with a balm top up.
Addicted? Maybe just a little.
Which is why instead of ignoring my possible addiction, I’ve instead decided to embrace it and put my money where my lips are and support Liptember.
And I hope you will too.
Every day during September I’m going to pucker up with Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm in Hibiscus.
This particular balm is the pin-up balm for Liptember (you can pick up yours for $10 at Myer – and it’s also available at www.myer.com.au). This is not only an amazing lip balm – so, so luxe on the lips – the deep pink shade is universally flattering.
Funds raised from sales of the balm – and individual sponsorships – will be used to support national programs and research at the Centre for Women’s Mental Health, which is the first gender-specific mental health clinic in Australia, and Lifeline Australia, which provides access to crisis support, suicide prevention and mental health support service.
So are you in? Ready to give good lip in September?
