What they say: Awaken lips with this super-nourishing balm. The unique formula is rich but lightweight and gives a gorgeous wash of color to lips -- it's the perfect pick-me-up anytime! Packed full of beneficial ingredients, this balm soothes lips immediately and nourishes them long term.
How to use: Smooth onto lips, layering for more color intensity.
What I think: I've always been more of a lip balm kind of gal than a lip gloss or lipstick person. I drink a lot of coffee and tend to lick my lips a lot (kinda gross, but whatever) so it seemed like a waste.
But I got this Pixi version in my Birchbox and really liked it. I had previously tried other tinted balms, which usually were more like a tint of color.
This one packed a punch for a balm.
The Pixi Pink color was perfect for summer -- it was bright, summery & fun without being overwhelming. I think I'd like to try the Honey Nector or Natural Rose colors for Fall & Winter now.
My lips felt smooth and nourished, just like a regular lip balm. But you could tell I was wearing color so it was a little more polished and put together than just plain ole balm.
The color does wear off onto your cup or napkin. But since it was so nourishing, I looked forward to reapplying (unlike lipstick that can dry out your lips more).
Overall, this was a win in my book.
