Lip balms are a staple in my hand bag and I have used a variety of them. Today, let’s talk about the
Victoria’s Secret Tinted Lip Balm – in the shade Pink Sugar 16.5g
Price: $ 9.99
Ingredients: See pic below
Quantity: 16.5 gram
Victoria’s Secret outlets are so tempting, so pink and so attractive 😉
I purchased this lip balm from their store in Dubai. It is a part of their “Pink Collection”.
The lip balm comes in a small round metal tub which is quite travel friendly! The bright pink lid over the black tub makes it look very pretty. It has a shelf life of 12 months after opening.
The texture of the lip balm is quite unique since it feels like a lip balm as well as a lip gloss. The balm glides effortlessly on the lips. One swipe gives a sheer layer but multiple swipes don’t really intensify the colour as such. The issue with all lip balms which come in a tub is that you need the fingers to apply it. This can get a little unhygienic and messy.
The lip gloss feels moisturizing on the lips and very comfortable to wear. When you apply the lip balm, it gives a nice cooling effect on the lips – the peppermint ingredient. It gives a rich glossy effect to the lips. The lip balm has a very slight shimmer. It can be worn standalone preferably since it has a slightly thick consistency. But the word “tinted lip balm” can be misleading since it has a very slight tint.
The shade Pink Sugar is a very sheer bright pink shade. Since it has very less or almost no colour, it doesn’t cover even tiny bit of the pigmentation of my lips. It rather appears as a glossy shimmer.
It stays put for just about 2 to 3 hours after which it needs a re-application. It would suit better on those who have naturally pink lips.
If you want to pick up a lip balm which gives the effect of a sheer gloss as wel, then you should surely try this one!
