The 7 Lip Balms Top Models Use!

Confession time: If you were to upend our makeup bags, you’d find no less than five to six lip products at any one time. Hey, we're fashion and beauty editors; We like to think of it as research! But, the fact of the matter is, we know that we're not the only ones suffering from a severe lip-balm obsession. Pretty much every woman we know says the same thing—we just can’t get enough of the stuff! Never is this unashamedly bold generalization truer than backstage at New York Fashion Week, where we quizzed some models on their most oft-used beauty products for the runway season. The reoccurring theme? "Lip stuff." We wanted to get the inside scoop on the specific products these beautiful faces just can’t live without. Here’s what we unearthed.

Zuzanna doesn’t have a preference in color or even a formula, but we do know that if it’s M.A.C, and it’s shiny, Zuzanna probably has it on her lips.

Michaela Hlavackova
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, $17, available at Elizabeth Arden. There’s no denying this is a cult product, and Michaela uses it to get her lips through the craziness of Fashion Week. Bonus: Pop the cream on your eyelids and cheekbones for a quick, dewy makeup touch-up, and apply it to your elbows, knees, or other dry areas for instant moisture. Genius!
