Shop My Stash: Lip Balms

Sunday, January 04, 2015

Hello girls !
This is a part of my new series: Shop my stash (or should I say: take a look into my collection and shop with me :P)
I've accumulated quite a lot of lip balms, so it's the perfect time to tell you more about my collection.
Some of these are fairly new, but the others are used and well loved. I do use up lip balms quite often, to be honest, so my collection keeps changing. I'm not one of those hoarders who just keep lip balms because they're cute and nice. So, let's keep reading.




In use - Simple lip balms



These are non-tined ones. I've talked about EOS already, but my opinion hasn't changed. It is just a normal lip balm, nothing special. It does moisturize my lips and packaging is convenient, however I don't think I'd pay so much for a lip balm in Slovenia anymore.
Next are Labello Lip Butters. I've talked about Vanilla & Macadamia one firstly and then I got sent the Coconut one. They are quite thick and buttery, however I feel like I have to use up one third or a bit less, so it works nicely. The smells/flavours are just amazing, though. I wish Nivea would make a body lotion in Vanilla & Macadamia scent !
I've talked about Mama Mio Wonderfull Balm as well. It really does have a unique texture and is lovely.


I have to admit I haven't tried Caudalie lip balm a lot, but from a few uses I can say it's quite decent and smells a bit like grapes, which I really like. I don't know if it's worth the price though.
One of my all time favorite ones has to be Labello Repair & Care, It just leaves my lips nicely moisturized and has a nice natural tint to it.
Figs & Rouge Vanilla Pistachio Lip Butter is a big dissapointment. I was curious about it and when I put it on it just didn't feel right. It is quite liquidy, but it just sits on your lips and doesn't do anything: no moisturization.

Tinted Lip Balms




Labello Fruity Shine are not my favorite. Pink Guava has obnoxious glitter which bothers me like a lot. Cherry one is better and is quite good, but the smell may be too sweet sometimes. Maybelline Baby Lips have been raved about so much and I talked about them already in my favorites post as well as separately (swatches here and here). Out of: Peach Kiss, Cherry Me, Strike A Rose & Pink Shock my favorite one has to be Cherry Me. I won't say much, but I just really like the feeling on my lips and how moisturizing they are.


Burt's Bees are one of my favorite as well. They provide nice texture and a lot of moisturization. The Pomegranate may not be tinted but it kind of leans to a sheer red side. However the Hibiscus - tinted lip balm has leaves a really lovely color on the lips.

Unopened




My collection might be big, but I'm not one of those people that have to immediately open every single lip balm - I keep a small collection of opened ones which still feels too much sometimes.
I did open Le Couvent Des Minimes Smile Lip Balm, but haven't tested it properly yet, so I don't want to talk about it already. I'm mostly excited about non-tinted Baby Lips and The Body Shop (lip balm and lip butter).

On my wishlist:
Lip Smacker, Korres & Carmex lip balms

p.s. Let me know how big your collection is ! :)

Love and Lemons, Simona

  4. I would definitely choose Burt's bees Hibiscus to try out :)
    I love my EOS but I agree that in Europe they are totaly overpriced. However, I feel the same way about Baby Lips - almost all of them, to be exact :)
