Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balm - 01 Pink Marshmallow. Review

Hello,

how are you? Today I would like to review a Clarins Paris Colour Quench Lip Balm in 01 Pink Marshmallow. First thing I have to tell you is that this is my favourite lip gloss. I have dry lips and this lip balm works great for me. It offers a subtle colour, a lot of shine and has excellent moisturizing properties.

 I would describe its colour as a frosty, very light pink. It is just adorable:).

Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balm is a product that is a combination of a lip gloss and a lip balm. It delivers great makeup results and at the same time it takes care of your lips. After application your lips will feel instantly hydrated and nourishedAnd this effect will last for some time. The balm will offer you a bit of color and a lot of shine.

The formula isn't sticky, the lip gloss will not stick to you hair. I must say this is rather unusual for a lip gloss. I am a big fan of lip glosses and I have had many different ones but almost always when I was wearing a lip gloss and the day was windy I would end up with the hair in my mouth. I am sure that you know the feeling:)

I recommend this lip balm to everyone because it will moisture, nourish and protect your lips.  

Thanks for reading and greetings.

Hello,

I would say that this it is a mix of a lipstick and a lip balm. I am sure many of you would appreciate that:).

I don't know about you but I am not that much into lipsticks. I suppose I am just too shy inside to expose myself trough the lips (I hope you will understand what I mean). But I love lip glosses and lip balms.  Lip glosses are nice but they don't really moisturize and the lip balms often don't provide enough of color. However, this lipstick from L'Oreal offers both:). It is very moisturizng  and at the same time it will give your lips enough of colour. The lipstick is very soft, like a butter but it doesn't melt easily. After application your lips will be not only shiny but also soft and nourished. If you want to prolong this effect apply the lipstick a few times during the day. I have very "fussy" lips (dry, chapped) and surprisingly two or three applications a day is good enough.

Tickle me Pink is a nice baby pink colour and on the lips it looks rather sheer. It gives a subtle color and a lot of shine. The staying power is moderate.

I would highly recommend you this product, maybe not necessarily in this colour but you could always choose something more "visible". You can see from the pictures that I reallylike L'Oreal Caresse lipstick:).
The packaging it plain, just pink and white plastic. There is 6 grams of product and it costs here about 10 euros.

Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balm, Long Lasting Moisture & Shine in 03 Candy Pink review

Hello,
Clarins Paris Colour Quench Lip Balm is my favorite lip gloss. I just love it and I am sure you will love it, too. It will offer you a shine of a lip gloss and repairing action of a lip balm.  I own number 03 candy pink which is a light pink colour with a shimmer.



This balm will offer you a  subtle color and shine and at the same time your lips will be moisturized:). Clarins Paris Colour Quench Lip Balm will sooth your lips as well.You can wear it alone or over a lipstick.

How does it work?
when you apply it your lips will feel instantly hydrated and nourished. The soothing comfort will last for hours even if your lips are as "demanding" as mine. My lips are often dry or chapped (especially that I live in Finland where is cold and windy) and this balm has been great. The lip gloss isn't sticky so wearing it during windy day will not be a problem. You can forget about hair getting stuck in the lip gloss:).
The balm will give you a hint of color and a lot of shine. No wonder Clarins Paris Colour Quench Lip Balm is a Anti-Ageing Award Winner Beauty Bible. I highly recommend it!
Thanks for reading and greetings.

Burt's Bees, Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil


Hello,
Burt's Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil has a subtle red tint to it, which gives a little bit of color to the lips. I like its fruity natural smell. It is moisturizing on the lips and brings relief to dry or chapped lips. It is a bit waxy but I like it, it feels like my lips are well protected during cold windy weather. Lips stay moisturized some time after the balm wears off.
I like it a lot for its natural and very good ingredients. After all, one should be very careful what to apply on the lips.
Ingredients: helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, cera alba (beeswax, cire d'abeille), cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, lanolin, aroma (flavor)*, punica granatum (pomegranate) seed oil, tocopherol, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, glycine soja (soybean) oil, canola oil (huile de colza), carmine, benzyl salicylate, cinnamal, citral, eugenol, geraniol, hydroxycitronellal, limonene, linalool.

Maybelline Baby Lips Balm, Pink Punch

Hello,this is a review of Maybelline Baby Lips Balm in Pink Punch.I have been testing it for the last couple of weeks and I would like to share my opinion with you.

It is worth mentioning that this lip balm is more like a lipstick.  The Maybelline Baby Lips Balm in Pink Punch is an intensive baby pink colour and it should suit almost everybody. But for example on my lips it goes very pink so if you have pale lips naturally (like me) please take it under consideration.  Good thing is that although the colour is on a bright side it still suites me and I feel comfortable about wearing it. 

Pros:

  • the balm feels very good on the lips
  • it has a creamy texture
  • it hydrates the lips while you are wearing it
  •  It will not feel sticky 
  • flattering colour
  • it will not cause an allergic reaction
  • availability
  • price







































  • But it will not help much if your lips are really dry
  • it will not  moisturize your lips for a full 8 hours as the producer has stated. Especially now,during the winter. 

Ingredients: Polybutene, Octyldodecanol, Isopropyl Myristate, Petrolatum, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Polyethylene, Ozokerite, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter / Shea Butter, Diisostearyl Malate, Candelilla Cera / Candelilla Wax / Cire De Candelilla, Vp/Hexadecene Copolymer, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Parfum / Fragrance, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Tocopherol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Alumina, Aroma / Flavor, Silica, Isopropyl Palmitate, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Limonene, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Benzyl Benzoate, Centella Asiatica Extract, Aluminum Hydroxide, Citral, Linalool, Hexyl Cinnamal, Tin Oxide, Geraniol, Eugenol, Aloe Barbadensis Extract / Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Mel / Honey / Miel, Calcium Pantothenate, Ascorbic Acid, Dimethicone, Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, Atelocollagen. 
May Contain: CI 77891 / Titanium Dioxide, MICA, CI 45410 / Red 28 Lake, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 / Iron Oxides, CI 15850 / Red 7, CI 45380 / Red 22 Lake, CI 19140 / Yellow 5 Lake. CI 42090 / Blue 1 Lake, CI 15985 / Yellow 6 Lake, CI 75470 / Carmine.

Overall, I'd say go for it:). But please remember that Maybelline Baby Lips Balm in Pink Punch is more like a lipstick than a lip balm. It will give you a colour but it won't really nourish or super moisturize your lips. 

Greetings, Joanna
