Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Lip Protectant Stick

Elizabeth Arden Goes Vintage

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream is one of the — if not the— first cult-classic beauty product, famously used by Marilyn Monroe. A few years ago, Elizabeth Arden released a hand lotion version, and now, over 70 years after its inception, the cream has been repackaged in limited-edition 1950's packaging. The new Lip Protectant Stick has SPF 15 ($25) and is packed with vitamin E Since it's the time of year where my lips are inexplicably dry no matter what I do, I thought I'd give it a little road test.

I'm a fan of the lipstick-style tube, since it really only requires one hand to apply. The actual product has the same scent as Eight Hour Cream: powder-y and retro. This thick formula sits on top of lips, which makes me think it's kind of heavy on the wax. Still, it stays on and heavily moisturizes, so if you can swing the price and are one of the many Eight Hour Cream devotees, give it a try. And stay tuned: Arden will be releasing these cute limited-edition decades-themed Eight Hour Cream packaging every few months.

I have an obsession with lip balms, especially this time of year. The packaging is nice and it looks easy to apply.

I love this stuff! I also like the tinted, more lipstick-y versions of this balm too. Elizabeth Arden makes some pretty nice products.
