C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Cordials have been on my hit list since I seen them pop up online. Count me curious as they sounded so yummy but did anyone feel like the word “mentha” just didn’t belong together with flavors like hot chocolate and spiced cider? I mean mentha=mint plus spiced cider? buttered rum? Totally makes me gag…!
The Muse set out to find out how scary mentha would be combined which such thrilling holiday flavors and she was delightfully surprised!
Find out why after the jump!
DON’T make the same mistake as the Muse. Truly I’d probably have avoided hauling any of the C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Cordials simply because of the keyword mentha. I just felt like that would be the biggest turn off. Mind you I love mint in my glosses but some of the flavors of the Cordials combined with mint sounded horrifying.
So check it…
C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Cordials come in four flavors, Hot Buttered Rum, Hot Chocolate, Warm Spiced Cider, and Vanilla Cream Egg Nog. Now those all sound incredibly yummy but thinking about adding a dash of mint to any kinda of turns me off. Aside from possibly Hot Chocolate I can’t think that mint would taste good with cider, egg nog, or rum….right?
Wanna know the good news?
There isn’t any mint at all and each flavor is amazingly true to it’s name and tasty as all heck!
Aside from a slight tingling you won’t taste mint at all in any of the flavors. All the flavors are sooooooo delicious. Enough so that you’ll want to tip your head back and squeeze each gloss into your mouth, yes, indeed, they are THAT tasty. I cannot believe how true these are too their namesakes and probably some of the best tasting glosses I’ve had my hands on and believe me I’ve had my hands on plenty.
Each gloss has a thick, shiny formula that’s a clear white with white shimmer. They glide onto lips very smoothly and leave behind a beautiful mirror shine. Perfect on their own or on top of lipsticks or stains.
Overall, the flavors absolutely floored me as they are so delicious and yummy tasting. The gloss itself has a nice formula but don’t expect it to wear long as chances are you’ll be licking it off your lips within a few minutes as the heavenly taste is too tempting not to lick off.
C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Cordials get a big yay from me. Total Muse Approval for purchase on these. Count me pleasantly surprised how great they are! I’ve learned my lesson, never will I pass up Bath and Body Works gloss display again, I’m hooked.
Anyone snag these?
