Luscious Lips, Even in Winter

Whether glossy or matte, overlined, injected, luscious lips are the thing. What better month to discuss them than the month of amour.

Getting lips in shape during a cold winter where dry and cracked is the norm is not hard with a few special products.
I found many fabulous lip treatments at the new Cos Bar in The Plaza at Preston Center. The store is a beauty-product lover’s dream.

Founded in 1976 in Aspen, and with locations now in 20 cities, Cos Bar carries some of the most luxurious skincare, hair care, makeup, candle, and fragrance lines. I’m not sure why it took the chain so long to come to Dallas, but, yay, it’s here now.

Cos Bar has lots of great options for lips.

KNC Beauty’s all-natural collagen-infused lip mask is perfect if injections aren’t your thing. LipSmart’s hydration technology “reserves and seals” moisture for fuller-looking lips, especially those that are severely dry, while Natura Bissé’s lip serum, Diamond Lip Booster, will add elasticity and volume.

New to me, the Zelens line includes a lip oil, lip balm, and two lip enhancers, coming in light pink and natural. When applied, the products work with your own body chemistry to produce a gorgeous color perfect for your skin tone. Lips become beautifully glossy, with volume and moisture, for an irresistibly sensual pucker.

Clé de Peau Beauté’s anti-aging lip serum helps lips appear plump and youthful.

Since it is the month to give gifts to your love, men, listen up: I have found the ultimate gift that will keep giving daily. Though it’s not for lips, it will win you lots of kisses.

Clé de Peau Beauté has launched the ultimate foundation, the ultimate foundation, le fond de tient. It covers luminously with a light-as-air finish and beautifies skin over time by reducing roughness and the appearance of fine lines and improving complexion, giving skin a youthful radiant glow.

Now, I say give it as a gift, because this little beauty rings in at $250. However it offers 27 milliliters and comes in a fabulous pot that will look like jewelry on her vanity.

Clé de Peau Beauté has just arrived at Cos Bar and also can be found at Neiman Marcus in NorthPark Center. Staff at the Clé de Peau Beauté counter are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the line and will make sure you don’t feel awkward buying foundation.

Grosses bisous à tous this Valentine’s Day!
