I got this when i won Milk & Cookiie's giveaway.
I have been seeing this on Etude House because of the packaging though i have to say that i wasn't really interested to start with. But it's not that bad once you start using it.
The packaging is so cute,right?
It comes in a twist-able pen that reminds me a lot of my "crayola" jumbos! haha. The kid in me is still very much alive because whenever i pass by the school supplies section of the bookstore i would squeal with all the beautiful colors surrounding me. Actually i love the scent of new crayons... same with new books... new lunchboxes & everything new!
That's why i'm always excited about the first days of school.
Moving on, the shades that i have are # 8 (red) & #2 (pink). I know that it has 8 shades in all. You'll see the shade on the sticker label on the cap so you might want to keep the sticker for future reference.
I won't call these as lipsticks because they seem more like a tinted lipbalm. It doesn't feel waxy which is good & it has a nice fruity scent.
I'll start first with the pink one... #2.
Here is how it looks like when swatched. It is a cute bubblegum pink!
Unfortunately, since my lips are pigmented the colors doesn't show that much but if you have pale lips then this would look great on you!
Then this is the red one.. #8
Here's how it looks like when swatched. Doesn't that look nice?
Now this is more like it!
It's pigmented enough to give my lips a nice flush of color with just one swipe!
I have to say that compare to the ordinary lip balm packaging, this would be bigger but the color selection for this line is better. I won't say that this is actually moisturizing because i have not really found a lip balm/butter that is actually moisturizing but this locks in moisture so you're sure that your lips won't chap/dry out once you use it. I would recommend this over ordinary colorless lip balms though.
Sadly, this one doesn't have sun protection but is still a nice product to try.
It's priced at Php 198 each & is available at Etude House.
