Hallelujah! Winter’s finally over. But some of its more unfortunate side effects are sticking around. Like our bone-dry (and somehow weirdly gunky?) lips.
But just when we thought all hope was lost and resigned ourself to a life of unsightly flaking and painful cracking, we discovered the Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch from Korean skin-care giant Tony Moly.
It’s basically a sheet mask for your lips, shaped like ridiculous cartoon lips. You stick it over your entire mouth and leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes. (No, you can’t talk while it’s on, but you can sneak in an episode of Veep.)
The results: noticeably less chapped lips with a side of temporary plumping. We haven’t seen our pout look so line-free in a while. But don’t take our word for it. Just look at Jessica Alba, Lady Gaga and Emma Stone, all of whom have been spotted on Instagram rocking this silly look in the name of smooth, soft and lipstick-ready lips.
