The labia (lips) are a part of the vulva. I don’t mean to be pedantic and picky, but until fairly recently the part where a penis goes was the only part of female sexual anatomy that was recognized (only relevant part, right? 😉) and the whole system was incorrectly termed Vagina. For that reason, it’s important to me that they be referred to correctly. Rock on!
