I got hooked in middle school. It was cheap. It was easy. And my mother supported the habit.

I have been a ChapStick fiend for as long as I can remember. Is there anything worse than dry lips? My mother told me no. My gateway was Cherry ChapStick. The rosy shade looked like lipstick! Twenty years later I still pull a plastic tube, complete with plastic wrap, from my designer handbags on a daily basis. I pull it out more than my favorite Nars lipstick! (For my favorite shade right now, look here.) But I can't ignore it anymore. It's time to grow up.

After years of searching for a suitable substitute of my favorite plastic tube, it's finally happened. It has SPF 15, a nice 'lipstick' scent, and the ladylike retro 1960's tube is exactly what I want to be pulling out of my handbag. It works underneath my lipsticks and have I mentioned I love gold? Thank you Estee Lauder, for another beauty classic.

Each application (and let's be honest, it's frequent) adds a moment of glamour to my regular day. It's the little things, you know?

Treat everyday like you are on the runway.
