My Experience with LipIce Sheer Color Shimmer Color Changeable Lip Balm:
Let’s begin the review with the packaging of the product. The lip balm comes in a beautiful black and white outer cardboard packaging. Each and every detail about the product is mentioned on the back of this pack.
The lip balm tube is nice pink in color. The tube bears the detailing in white fonts. The lip balm tube is very simple and travel-friendly. It is very sleek and gets accommodated in my pocket easily.
The lip balm bullet is translucent off-white in color. I have already reviewed the fragrant and the non-fragrant variant of this lip balm. This one is a shimmery lip balm. It is a color changing lip balm which looks off-white in the bullet, but its color changes to beautiful baby pink after applying it on the lips. The color is very subtle and natural. It mixes with the normal color of the lips and gives my lip a healthy pink look.
There are some very fine holographic micro shimmers in the lip balm. Though I am not really a fan of shimmery lip balms, I kind of like this one. The shimmers are non-chunky and looks subtle. They are barely noticeable. You need to focus hard to notice these shimmers. They do not look OTT or gaudy on the lips. They simply add nice dimension and a reflective finish. The shade is quite sheer, so it may not be helpful in hiding the pigmented lips well. It sets to a gorgeous shiny finish.
The fragrance of the lip balm is nice and it smells kind of berry. The smell stays for quite sometime and fades away gradually. The smell is mild and non-bothering for me. It is not too strong smelling, so it will not bother anyone. The lip balm does not have any taste.
The texture of the lip balm is great. It is very smooth and creamy. Hence, it glides on the lips effortlessly without any dragging of the lips. There is no grittiness in the texture of the lip balm. It is non-sticky and feels comfortable on the lips. The formula is lightweight and it does not feel waxy on the lips. But, I can still feel its presence on my lips. The lip balm does not come with any SPF, which is the only con of this lip balm.
Therefore, it is not great to be used under the sun. It is a good option for people with dry lips as it is very moisturizing and hydrating. The formula is very nourishing and helps to heal my dry lips very well. My lips stay hydrated for long after applying this lip balm even when the lip balm is wiped off.
The lasting power of the lip balm is somewhere around 3-4 hours on my lips. In the mean time, it looses its glossy sheen and color. The shimmers are left behind, but they do not look chunky on the lips. Overall, I quite love this lip balm.
