@Azyriah:  i use coconut or olive oil, vaseline (very light coats) and cover with any lipstick. That way I’m moisturized and pretty!

I also only do this during the winter because it isn’t an issue in the summer

I don’t have excema, but I find that revlon colorburst lip butters are really creamy and moisturizing.

@Azyriah:  Aveda has worked well for me.  It’s pricey, but I get super dry, cracked skin and I used to suffer from eczema, and it’s the only thing that I find moisturizing and soothing.  Best of luck!

@Azyriah:  Nipple balm. For realsies. It’s gentle, natural, no petroleum (can’t use vaseline because of this.) There’s a Dr. Lipps version at Sephora. I have sensitive, redness prone, flaky skin and it always feels like my lips are falling off in the winter and this helps.

Also, rubbing a little argan or coconut oil in when I get out of the shower make sure I don’t dry them out because of the hot water.

ETA: The Revlon Colored balms are super duper mositurizing and really pigmented.

@Azyriah:  Did you go to the dermatologist yet? I got medicine (Betamethosone Dipropionate Ointment) that I use when it starts to flare up. Within a couple days, I can wear lipstick with no problem.

@Azyriah:  Junkie! I didn’t even realize I had excema on my lips until I used my steriod cream on my very sore and dry lips as an experiment. I thought I was always dehydrated. I’ve recently purchased Korres butter lipstick and it’s good so far. I hope you can find something that works for you.

@Azyriah:  I have very dry lips, though I don’t have eczema.  Personally, I find the Revlon lip butters drying.  The L’oreal Balm ones are a little better, but the colours aren’t as vibrant.  I haven’t tried the Revlon kissable balm stains though.  

I second the Korres, and also the Fresh lip balms from Sephora.  They come in lots of colours now and are sheer but still pretty and quite easy on the lips.

The other thing I find doesn’t dry my lips out is Dior Addict lipsticks, they’re very like the lip butters but so expensive and don’t last worth a dang (maybe for one hour, maybe) so they’re not ideal but food for thought.  I also have no idea of the ingredients but for sure they’re not anywhere near “natural”.

I have dry cracking shedding lips at all times. Sugar Lip treatment at sephora is the best Ive ever tried. You apply it before the lipstick, also they have tinted ones too to wear alone. Nothing else works for me!(plus it smells amazing) its worth trying ๐Ÿ™‚

My lips have been terribly dry lately due to being sick/dehydrated [my lips hardly ever crack], but they were so dry/cracked the were bleeding. I’ve been using the EOS balms [this morning] and they are a TON better now. It is rather waxy though.

Hiya ๐Ÿ™‚ I used to have this SO BADLY and the only thing I could use was Lipsyl Strawberry, but then I think they changed the format. Now I use Protopic around my lips every other night and use Maybelline 24hr lip colour during the day. Has worked amazingly for 1.5 years now! I look like a normal person!

My lips used to be really bad. I discovered I was really allergic to lanolin which is in a lot of lip balms (here in the UK anyway) So my lips would hurt, so I would slap lip balm on, they would get worse, so you would slap more on. Once I switched to a balm without this in my lips were as good as new. Try an organic lip balm or something like that, may be that you are allergic to a commonly used ingredient.

I have never been able to wear lipstick and it is very frustrating. In middle school , when all the girls were experimenting with makeup, I would end up with peeling lips. When I used Loreal lipstick, it seemed to work for a little while, but then it made my lips peel again. Thank you all for the tips here. Maybe I can be able to wear lipstick again.
