When it comes to lip balm, I tend to spend less than $10. I'm just too scatterbrained and forgetful to drop more than that on balm, because inevitably I lose it and feel like a chump for doing so. But now that I've tried Payot Hydratation 24 Protection Levres, I can understand why some people pay a little more. Payot, a decades-old luxury skincare brand, sent me a sample of this lip balm. And from the first application, I was hooked. The balm has a hefty dose of shea butter to protect lips from chapping, and macadamia and jojoba oils help soften while making the balm smell amazing. This balm doesn't smear, it doesn't feel tacky, and it absorbs quickly while leaving my lips feeling protected. When I put it on, I feel like I have large and beautiful Angelina lips, and chapped lips don't stand a chance. Unfortunately, it would help to have Angelina's bank account, too — this balm is $29, but if you have the means, it's worth trying.
