My Review on The Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm:-

IMG_8644 (1)

Coming to the review, first of all this stuff comes in a tub which is transparent so you can actually check the amount of product left in it. I wish it came with a small spatula so it was easy and hygenic to use it. When applied on lips, it moisturises and conditions them well. The lip balm is red in colour but when applied on lips , it just gives a slight red tint and makes the lips look glossy. One thing I really love about it is that it smells of strawberries. The smell is really refreshing. It stays on my lips for a really good time , but I have a habit of reapplying it in three to four hours. I feel its good for all the seasons, but we may need something better for winters.

Overall, I do recommend The Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm. If you love their range of Strawberry, this is a must try then.

Enjoyy,
Sonal.

My Review on NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo.

To be honest, this lip shade from NYX was on my wishlist since the first time I saw it on web. It was like love at first sight for me when I saw this shade. I love wearing different shades of pink and this one is my personal favourite. It is a rosy pink shade that brightens up my skin instantly on applying it. Coming to the pigmentation, it covers up the lips in the first application itself. I don’t feel the need to apply another coat of this. I always use a lip balm, wipe it off with a tissue and then apply this for the smooth application. It gives an even look to my lips , and as this is a matte lip cream, the texture is creamy and the fragrance is something similar to vanilla.. Though the scent goes away after applying it. The staying power is really amazing , I mean after having lunch and a coffee it still stays. This shade has earned me a lot of compliments and  it can be used for a daily makeup look.

The Review-

Well, I cannot stop talking about how cute this Lip Balm looks.. Its an egg shaped balm and looks very cute( I am sure everyone will agree to this..hehe).. This lip balm ofcourse does smell  like passion fruit .. Coming to the application, when I apply this lip balm, it glides on my lips well… It does not feel heavy at all and gives a perfect base for applying lipsticks… It makes it easier to apply Matte lipsticks … It does stay on my lips for a longer time , but I have a habit of reapplying it within three to four hours or whenever I feel like… The only con I feel is that it does not have SPF , so I prefer using it in the evenings or when I am lazing at home… Apart from that I feel this lip balm is my to go lip balm..

About repurchasing it or using it again, Yes I will repurchase it.. Infact there are many other lip balms in this brand too ,so may be I would like to try the other ones…

Hope you all liked my review and found it useful.. Please feel free to comment and like on the post..Do let me know if you have used this lip balm ??

Enjoyy,

Sonal.
