Mentha Ultra Lip Shine
5.0

Sep/22/2018

EDIT: After a bad spell with Buxom Lip Polish and its antifreeze-like "plumping" qualities (OW! OW! OW!), I have returned to sing the praises of my faithful Ultra Mentha. Refreshing, sweet-tasting and very comfortable. And it fills the same niche at a fraction of the cost.

This is one of my “comfort products”, something that I love the feel and smell of, an old standard I’ll …

I use it every night, and during …Read more
