EOS lipbalms are just as much of a make-up bag must-have as MAC's Ruby Woo lipstick, Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit or Touch Éclat by Yves Saint Laurent. And is it really any surprise? After all, they work harder than any of the other products in our handbags, with multiple uses - not just soothing chapped lips. Here we give you the lowdown on everything you can use your EOS lipbalm for...

What are EOS lip balms and what does the 'EOS' stand for?

They are made by US company EOS, which stands for Evolution of Smooth. According to their website, the lip balms are packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter, and jojoba oil. They are paraben and petrolatum-free for soft, smooth, beautiful lips.

Which celebrities are fans?

A slew of A-listers adore EOS lip balms, including the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Miley Cyrus and Nicole Scherzinger.

Where in the UK can you buy an EOS lip balm?

What can I use my EOS lip balm for?

Unruly brows? Use a touch of balm tame them.

3. As an under eye cream
