During out last discussion about the new Nivea Lip Butter we had a house divided here in fair Verona (or Musings of Muse whatever floats your boat, it’s almost time for Shakespeare in the Park, cut me a break alright?).
No seriously, I got a ton of mixed impressions about these lip butters. Some folks loved ’em, some folks hated ’em, some folks thought they were over hyped…after trying them I understand ALL of your feelings.
How’d I feel about them in the end?
Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm is a newly launched hybrid formula that has the pigment and shine of a gloss but the texture and moisturizing properties of a lip balm.
I dunno how I feel about a hybrid gloss slash balm. I mean I’m happy enough with my lip balm being a lip balm and my gloss being a gloss. Do the two products really need a marriage?
Let’s find out.
As if we don’t have enough lip spheres right? But the Etude House Missing U Endangered Bird Lip Balm isn’t only cute its also a great purchase that benefits endangers species of birds!
This cute little speckled egg lip balm is much like EOS Lip Balm Spheres.
Take a look!
You’re very familiar with my habit of not touching up my lipstick and gloss which is why Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm is my bestest of best friends. We get on famously together and touch up is as easy as a swipe and go. I cannot be arsed to apply my lipstick and gloss as the day progresses, I’m just not that girl. As much as I love makeup I feel like it’s a chore to reapply my entire lip look when it wears away.
But lip balm?
I got time for that!
Well, Holika Holika Real Butter Lip Balm is the worst kind of packaging but I purchased it anyway because it brings me back to my makeup roots with its cute vintage slide packaging.
I dunno about you but lip slides like this were all the rage in my childhood. As we get older we begin to realize they are a germ-fest but when we’re young, for some reason, our innocent selves absolutely love the idea of a lip balm in a slide out tin. Shrug…who knows where that mentality comes from but even in older age they are still terribly appealing.
