Product Definition

Super-nourishing, lip-staining balm that keeps lips in optimum condition while giving them lush colour. 


What it's formulated to do

Packed with lip-loving ingredients, this glossy gel balm protects & hydrates lips instantly. After the balm wears off, lips are left tinted with a flattering, personalized hue just for you (colour & intensity depends on pH level of lips). 


Application

Twist-up crayon requires no sharpening. Secure lid after use.

What I thought

I like the color payoff. This lip balm is a little bit on the minty side. It glides smoothly during application and has a creamy feel. After half an hour or less, the shine wears off which leaves you with a tint of color. You'll have to reapply to maintain the luster.

Sadly, it's drying and flaking out my lips. Not moisturizing at all. Too bad. I would have loved to love this lip balm. I find my Chapsticks, which cost a dollar, doing a whole lot better in the moisturizing department. I'm expecting more because I paid $14 USD for it.


OVERALL RATING: 3/5
