Anyone else still in Summer mode? I’m kinda still exploring my Summer options lately and rounding up what I haven’t used or didn’t try out yet. It’s pretty much very cool the last few days so I suspect Fall is well on it’s way. Guess I better hurry along now and get all my Summer lovin’ in as quickly as possible. Which is why you’ll see a burst of Summer fun coming from me. It’ll be a rather great excuse to try out these items if you haven’t yet as they are liable to fly off the shelves and get quickly replaced by Fall and Winter stuff.
Today’s review brings me to DuWop IcedTeas.
Check it after the jump.
DuWop IcedTeas are a translucent lip treatment that pack a mighty fine flavor. I only hauled one so far and it’s tasty so I might just take a bite of mine in the near future. Seriously, it’s sweet, fruity, and just yummy. This is one thing I absolutely adored about it.
The formula is a cooling treatment so it applies in a refreshing way while leaving behind subtle color. Actually this is where things go downhill….subtle color hmm.
They don’t promise pigmentation so I really shouldn’t rant too much but the fact is the color is somewhat non existent. Mind you, I got the darkest shade of the bunch too. It does give a very slight hint of red but nothing dramatic. Aside from this I also felt like the formula wasn’t as moisturizing as I would have liked. It’s a strange thing but I honestly thought the gel-like look of the product would interpretate to a smooth, gelly-like formula. Not the case at all. It’s somewhat hard, not very moisturizing at all, and just doesn’t have a nice, natural glide as many lip products do.
The shade I purchased was Black Currant which has an exotic fruity, candy-chery-ish flavor. I do wonder if each one has a different flavor? I assume so as they have names like White Peach and Passion Fruit. Black Currant is a deep black cherry shade. You can see my dilemma here as I thought maybe this deep shade would translate as giving my lips a bit of pink but that bit of pink is very subtle.
I think I could have forgiven the lack of pigment as it doesn’t promise such but the crummy formula is unforgivable for me. Love the refreshing coolness, like the fact that it contains sun protection, absolutely adore the yummy flavor, but the formula totally sealed the deal for me and left me wanting. If you want color and a bit of moisture I’d try out Lipstick Queen Medieval Lipstick. If you prefer or like balms that are tasty, this may appeal.
As for the Muse, she’s left feeling kinda disappointed.
Anyone try yet?
Do share your yay or nay review!
By the way no swatches sadly as when I try I just get a clear film on my wrist.
