One of the goodies that was given to us at the LOOK show last week was this ‘Just Pink Lip Balm’ from Next which I believe costs around £1.50 in-store.
I tested it out for the first time yesterday and am in two minds about the product. The aesthetics are lovely; the light pink design makes it look pretty in the make-up bag-(a lot more so than my trusted vaseline lip balm)! Also the smell when the lid is taken off is a gorgeous floral scent which is quite refreshing without being too strong. Finally, the lip balm itself is a delicate smooth, rose colour:
When I put the lip-balm on I was pleasantly surprised by the light pink shimmer it gave to my lips, almost like a lip gloss. However as a balm it was not so successful, as it felt slightly greasy and did not moisturise as much as I would have liked. It also wore away fairly quickly, even without me eating or drinking. I am not unhappy with the product and might use it for nights out, but on this occassion I think I’m going to stick with my unattractive yet wonderful vaseline:
