10 Genius Uses for Your Drugstore Lip Balm

Amanda Montell

You know what would be amazing? If someone invented a multi-taking beauty product that you could use for literally anything—lip gloss, highlighter, moisturizer, hair gel, brow pomade, everything. Oh wait... that product already exists. And it costs less than $5.

That's right—sitting in your purse right now is the world's most versatile beauty product: lip balm. And we're not talking about a fancy $60 designer lip balm, either. We're talking about your Aquaphor, Vaseline, Rosebud Salve, Babylips, and other super simple lip balms you can pick up at the drugstore. Personally, I milk my favorite Carmex lip balm for all that it's worth, using it as an eczema treatment, face gloss, and more.

I knew there had to be other smart hacks for your everyday lip balm, so I got in touch with three celebrity makeup artists of Honey Artists, who've made lip balm work on runways and red carpets in ways you would not even imagine.
