Chu Lip, Lip Balm Review

[UPDATED REVIEW]

This is going to be a short review because I have already written a first impression post on it (here). Here are some pictures! The one I have here is Apple Ginger and Tea Rose flavour.

So cute!

Easy to open tab! This packaging is one you will not complain about being difficult to open.

Love that lip shaped indent!

It used to be a perfect round dome!

Description: A egg-shaped lip balm enriched with olive oil, macademia nut oil, and rosehip oil. It doesn’t have any colour or tint to it. It has a lovely fruity flavour and tastes slightly sweet.

Price: Anywhere between MYR 15 to 25.90 depending on where you buy it and factoring in discounts.

Where to buy: Major drugstores like Watsons and Guardian.

 

Pros:

It glides on the lips smoothly.

It hydrates, soothes (because there is menthol added) and moisturises.

It smells and tastes pleasant.

It effectively remedies cracked lips.

Does not feel waxy or uncomfortable on the lips.

 

Cons:

The screw-cap has to be handled rather carefully because it can scrape the product and can be potentially over-tightened, spoiling the snap lock mechanism.

 

Ratings:

9/10

It is a fantastic lip balm! What else can I say?

Lipice Lip Balm Review

My previous lip balm reviews include the Maybelline Baby Lips (here), Mentholatum (here), Chu Lip (here; this is my current fave!), and Nivea Essential Care (here).Β 

Lipice is a product that I’ve heard people rave about so I just had to try it out.

Description:

Lip balm with SPF 15 and the one I have here is the Apple flavour.

Price: MYR 10.50 (you can actually get this for as cheap as 50% off)

Where to buy: Major drugstores and malls.

 

Pros:

Glides on smoothly.

Very moisturising and hydrating.

Effectively soothes chapped lips.

Nice flavours (comes in 3 more; strawberry, blackcurrant, and lemon).

Doesn’t feel very waxy or heavy on the lips.

Hasn’t caused me any problems or allergies.

 

Cons:

Only con is that it is susceptible to melting in hot conditions (like most lip balms).

 

9.1/10

Perhaps one of the highest rating for any product I have given. Go get one for yourself; it’s cheap and effective. Enough said!

First Impression, Silkygirl Matte Fever Lipcolor Balm

Yes, my first repeated brand on FiercePaint. Oh well, it was inevitable, however, it is for good reason. I loved this product so much upon first impression that I just HAD to write about it. This is a brand spanking new product on the Silkygirl counters (released inΒ May 2015).

It is called a 'lipbalm', however, it does not at all swatch like one.

My thoughts:

It is a chubby stick type product, very much like their Moisture Boost Lipcolor Balm. I got the lipstick (I am calling it a lipstick because that’s what it is anyway) in the shade 01; Vogue, I mean, obviously!!! It is a muted darker pink colour. The packaging is matte while the product itself smells like dessert and I love that!!! It glides on smoothly and, as the description says, it has a matte finish. It leaves a stain even when the colour rubs off and is pretty opaque. Since I did say the product does rub off, it would be relevant to mention that it isn’t smudge-proof.

First thoughts; I am in love with this product!!! It is available at the Silkygirl counters and I believe Watsons is currently having a promotion for it (which was where I bought it). I am definitely going back for more shades before the prices go up! As for serving as a balm, well, that would be in my review, in the future!

Do give it a try!!! This colour in particular is amazing on people of my complexion i.e. warm, deep tanned Indian skin tone.
