So I went Lip Ice CRAZY last year. I finally found the time to blog about 3 of them. Here are the Lip Ice Color Lipbalms (for soft and beautiful lips –haha!):
The three variants are Candy Apple, Pretty Pink and Sweet Rose.
There’s a lot of product in one tube. This is Pretty Pink which looks really red.
This is Sweet Rose. I love those tiny sparkles!
Here are swatches:
From top to bottom – Pretty Pink, Sweet Rose, Candy Apple. I just opened Candy Apple today and I haven’t used it yet like for the whole day. I just swiped it on for photo purposes.
Pretty Pink looks very light. This is perfect as a base for other pink lipsticks.
When I’m too lazy to apply and bring lipstick, I swipe Sweet Rose on. The sparkles and strong shade make it a good lipstick substitute.
Candy Apple is also light. I was surprised that it didn’t turn out red like the picture on the cover. I guess I can use this as a base for red lipsticks.
I love the fact that these lip balms are SPF 15 so my lips are protected. It says on the packaging that it contains water microsphere so I’m thinking that makes your lips moisturized. Oh, I just read this, “super moist retention formula”. It also contains Vitamin E, Lanolin Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Mango Seed Butter to keep lips soft and moisturized.
After all that hoopla, it doesn’t work on me. My lips still chap, they still dry up. You know why? These lip balms are sweet. I don’t like sweet lip balms. I tend to lick my lips to get rid of the taste. Also, the sweetness annoys me. It stays in my mouth for a very long time. It also dries up my mouth and throat. I have to drink water every now and then just to stop myself from licking my lips and to get rid of the taste. I do last for a few hours without licking but I’ve noticed that my lips are still dry. I need to reapply for maximum effect.
To make these lip balms a little more effective, I try to remember to scrub my lips. I apply the lip balm, wipe my lips with tissue then swipe again after all the dry skin has been removed. Now that makes this lip balm tolerable.
Price is a little bit over one hundred pesos and is available at Watsons and Beauty by SM. Will I repurchase? No. I’d recommend this for teens and for girls who love sweet lip balms. They are also nice for days when you just want a natural fresh look.
