25 Perfectly Bookish Lip Balms You Need To Get On Your Face
Books are fun. A bag full of beautifully-scented chapsticks and lippies? Also fun (especially during moisture-wrecking winter). So, I decided to combine the two and found so many great, pun-tastic bookish lip balms to choose from. Like “As I Shea Dying” and “Tarte of Darkness.” *giggle snorts*
Gird your wallets, or don’t. These bookish treats are less than $5 each and I certainly won’t judge you if you decide buy all 25 of them. One for almost every day of the month?
