Hi, hi! How is everyone?
I'm sharing a lip balm review today - it's a current favourite ^_^
A little while back, UK makeup brand Makeup Academy had this amazing 50% off, plus free shipping promotion and one of the things I bought was this Love Hearts lip balm.
If the packaging looks somewhat familiar, well it's because this lip balm is the result of a collaboration between MUA and confectionery company Love Hearts - they make those cute little candies with the messages on them~
I found that the pigmentation is just strong enough to give my lips a nice, raspberry pink shine. It's actually a very natural looking lip balm on me, and makes my lips prettily pink and moist /juicy looking.
It also looks like I have a little lip gloss on over the top too - the formula provides some glossy looking shine to lips, which I thought is quite pretty! And the good thing is, there's no stickiness to the lips like some lip glosses give.
There is a faint scent of vanilla that is really nice, and I like that it's not too heavily scented.
Lasting power is so-so, you definitely must reapply after eating or every few hours.
I really love the size of this - you get a generous 10g of product! And it only costs £2 normally - that's about $3 here (though I got if half price, so a total bargain!).
I guess the only thing I'm not too fond of is the fact that since it's in a pot, it does require fingers to be dipped into the lip balm. It's not the most hygienic nor convenient, but then the packaging wouldn't be as cute?
Hot Lips was such a great buy, my only regret was not buying more of these Love Heart balms! I will be keeping an eye out for the next MUA promotion, lol.
Lovelies, what lip product are you currently enjoying?
