Take a look!
I picked up these darling little Glossy Lip Balms at my local CVS and honestly didn’t expect too much from them but wow, they surprised me.
They have a delicious sweet apple taste and provide a nice hint of color on my lips with a little shine and they provide moisture so my lips feel soft and smooth through the wear. What more could I possibly want for under three bucks?
Color, shine, and moisture? Total cheap thrill!
These have a moisturizing core in the shape of an apple with a color balm stick that surrounds that core. The texture is a heavier balm but it isn’t uncomfortable and wears quite nicely for three to four hours providing color and moisture with a little hint of a shine through that wear. The color is actually the most surprising part as they aren’t terribly sheer and you can see the nice tint they leave behind…I wouldn’t call it medium or full coverage but it is noticeable color on lips.
Apple Blossom, Applelicious Pink, Apple Blueberry Pie
Caramel Apple and Chocolate Apple
Apple Blueberry Pie
Now the flavor is very nice but it starts to morph and begins to taste a little unpleasant as the wear progresses. It went from apple to kinda perfume-y within the first hour but faded completely after that. Just a warning for those sensitive to flavored/scented lip balms.
Apple Blueberry Pie
Each balm is a swivel up design with a flat slanted head for application. They glide on like butter on my lips….! Some shades were better pigmented than others but almost all five shades I purchased gave a very nice tint.
I say buy ’em! You don’t need all ten shades but one or two is well worthy of your cash particularly if you like no nonsense lip products that give healthy color, a hint of shine, and provide nice moisture through the wear.
