--price...you can afford to try different shades without regret
--ODOR...I don't know if it's a fragrance that is added or if it's just the smell of the chemicals, but it's really strong. It gives me a headache, so I can't wear it. Yuck.
--color wears very, very clear...I didn't expect a lipSTICK level of color, but this wore clear on me. If you already have pigmented lips, try a darker shade.
I don't like this color and the way it feels on my lips. And the taste is kind of gross. However, my fiance loved the color and complimented me. So, I will only be wearing it on the weekends with him but I will not repurchase.
Lipslicks are HG for me, I love the level of tint and silky feeling. This shade took awhile for me to like. I am NW15 by the way, but with very pigmented lips.
This one will probably look "porn starish" as another reviewer noted if your skin tone is above NW/NC20. Also, it does highlight chapped lips, so put chapstick on beforehand, or just layer it up (but then it's really frosty!).
I find that when my lips are not chapped and I am wearing minimal makeup, this is a lovely accent and because my lips are so naturally pigmented, the frost is not as obvious with just one layer. It actually gives me a peachy pinky MLBB glossy look. I think if you are very fair and have time to scrub your lips here and there, you will be pleased with this shade.
My profile, for FYI:
NW10/15, cool toned, blue eyes, normal/oily skin, 3a fine but coarse curly hair but I wear straight thanks to keratin treatments!
This is a lip stick with the feeling of a balm (not a gloss). The pigmentation is not strong, which I am okay with, and it is a little too shimmery for me (I really prefer a matte lip or a glossy lip - no shimmer or glitter). Overall it's lovely, especially nice if you only want to keep one lip product in your bag.
I've had these on and off since high school. And I still like them! They're light in color, but a cute and glossy. I find it a bit drying on its own, but fine over balm. I suspect that I like this more than I should - its the been wearing since high school connection that I like. Ocassionally I find the color of this to be a bit too cool / frosty for my warm coloring.
I hated it so much, I had tor return it - I exchanged the LS for a neutrogena tinted balm without shine since they are not selling the Burts Bees' new release in my area. The kind of pale lavender overtones of this balm look nice MATTE - the shimmer is just way way too much - I have an issue when my balms start to look paler than my skin, and then reflect light on top of that.
Additionally, the texture was more of an old-fashioned lipstick - waxy, thick for balm and not very moisturizing...
My review is basically the same as the person directly under me. I was hoping for something sheer and rosy, but it did come out more lilac-pink than I wanted. It's a cute color on a little girl, perhaps, but I felt like I was a little too old for this color. Also, since I have extremely beige skin, this lilac-pink color looked a little too cool on me.
As for the smell, yes, it's pretty awful. It's like the standard lipstick smell. Also, don't panic if it seems really pigmented at first. When you first open it, it's pretty dry so it looks like your lips are peeling. After it warmed up to being used, though, it became a lot more sheer and easy to put on.
The moisturizing aspect is pretty good, about the same as any other chapstick. I guess in theory, this product was a good idea, but I don't like this color very much. I may attempt to use another color before I decide if I love or hate this product.
I love lipslicks (the darker berry shades)... but this one isnt so cute. I have really pigmented lips so I didnt think it would show up. I bascially fell in love with the baby pink packaging and I love the size actually. (Makes it easier to grab at the bottom of my purse..) I was hoping for a slight baby pink tint or worst case scenario- no color... just sheer. This did show up...purpley frost. The cool lavender undertone doesnt look so good on me. You cant tell at all that it would be this cool when you look at it in the packaging. This would be great for people that like a light lavender-pink frost. I would repurchase lipslicks but not this shade. I'll keep it in my purse for a chapped lip emergency if I dont lose it first. ;-) Who knows? Maybe I'll grow to love the color. Right now? Not so much.
Very nice product! I don't like lipsticks because they add too much color but I don't like leaving my lips totally bare, so this was perfect for me. Offers a tinge of color for a more natural look and not so dramatic. Also I like the shine, it's not over powering like some lip glosses out there, but still noticeable. Only complaint is that I have to reapply often. After an hour or so, the color is still there, but my lips feel really dry. But I don't mind reapplying too much :)
I love this product. If you want a lipstick that doesn't look like you got makeup on, this is it. This is a very very light pink color. My lips have very little color to them, so I apply this to make it look like a natural pink color. Also, it keeps the lips plump. Would recommend this if you want the subtle look.
