|L to R: Sweet Tart, Peach Parfait, Cupcake, Tutti Frutti,|
Gumdrop, and Creamsicle.
Sweet Tart: This shade is my ABSOLUTE favorite out of all the ones that I got! It's the perfect hot pink color for spring and I can finally wear the neutral eye, bright lip combo that I have always dreamed of! haha It applies like a dream and the color is so pretty and buildable. I can't say enough about this color. AWESOME!
Peach Parfait: This color was one of the original two colors that I purchased. It is much darker on the lips than it looks in the tube and has a TON of micro glitter pieces in it. It's so sparkly and the only one of all six that has that feature. I'm in a love/hate with the glitter. I do appreciate the extra shimmer, but I learned as I was swatching these one after another that the glitter sticks to the lips like cement. I could not get it off to save my life. Other than that, I think it is a pretty, more neutral pinky peach shade. Not my favorite, but I don't hate it.
Gumdrop: I keep wanting to call this one Lollipop for some reason, but the two colors are so completely different! haha This color I was back and forth on for a long time in the store. I was between this one, which is a light purple/lavender shade and Créme Brulee (a nude color). I ended up with this color because it is so out of my comfort zone and that is what I want this blog to be about. Branching out, for better or worse. (Till death do us part? :/ ) All kidding aside, this color is super cute. Not crazy purple, but just the right amount. I can see myself wearing this with some bright colored eyes since it is so subtle that it shouldn't overwhelm my face. Another one of the lighter shades though and it can emphasize the dryness on my lips a bit.
Creamsicle: Last, but certainly not least, we have Creamsicle. This is probably the most neutral of the colors that I bought. I really didn't like this one at first, but I think it was because it white washed my lips more than I am used to seeing. I have naturally pigmented lips and it weirded me out to see them so pale, even though they aren't anywhere near as stark white as I perceived them. After I tried it out a couple times, I came to really like the neutral color it gave to my lips. The only downside being it is one of the lighter shades and out of all of them this one picked up the dryness the most.
Awesome color payoff from a balm type product
Wide Ranged Color Selection
Packaging is Amazing
Not as long lasting as I would hope
Price can be a little steep for some people considering it's a balm, but still way cheaper than any high end brand.
The glitter in Peach Parfait tends to linger A LOT.
Some of the lighter shades can emphasize dry lips.
Availability: Most drugstores and ULTA.
Overall, I really love these. I have never really been a lip product type of girl, but these are really changing my mind on that stance. I can see myself reaching for these on a daily basis! I do want to go get at least a couple more to try out the truer nudes and reds that they offer. Well, that's all for me guys. Hope you liked it! Giveaway still going on through April 28th! (I know I have been spamming all my posts with that, but I am just so freakin' excited! haha)
Until next time,
P.S. Will probably be making a schedule post pretty soon to let you know when and what I will be posting each week. :D
