The Muse doesn’t like ChapStick all that much, bit too waxy for her but I got on board with the new ChapStick Fresh Effects as it promises a tingle. Me likes tingly lip products, take for example my obsession with DuWop Lip Venom, love that tingle.
Since I purchased some ChapStick True Shimmer last year and enjoyed it I thought might as well give this one a shot.
Take the leap for the good word.
Since we all aren’t in situations where we can fling money at brand new cosmetics I think it’s always nice to have an option to dig around under our couch seats, among those leftover chips, for some chump change that we use on a small beauty purchases. ChapStick Fresh Effects is a tiny, cheap indulgence that’s completely practically and may fulfill your need for a little bit of beauty on a budget.
It’s surprisingly delightful as the Muse expected a waxy, crummy formula but actually it’s quite creamy, fresh and tingling, and has a slight cooling sensation. Granted it protect lips from cold weather but it also fulfills my oral fixation where I need to apply and reapply some sort of balm or gloss on my lips ever 10 minutes, don’t you sit there and lie, claiming you don’t have an oral fixation!
It’s pretty standard really just a cooling, creamy, moisturizing balm in a minty tea flavor or juicy mandarin. For a buck or two you can get your beauty budget on without breaking the bank plus it’s a perfect little stocking stuffer or to sneak into your desk draw to apply through the day when your lips are feeling dry.
Definitely a likey. Nothing wrong with a little ChapStick to make my lips all cool and tingly!
