I have got to say that MUA did an amazing job on these. The formula is very good. The lip balm stays on for a few hours before it starts to dry. Even after it dries, do not look or feel dry. Also, the colour is still apparent – like it has tinted your lips. It is easy to reapply them to your lips too – I don’t usually use a mirror – and your lips are good to go again.
So let’s get the negatives over and done with. The only negative I really have with these is the packaging. The writing on the packaging comes of after a few days in your makeup bag. Not really good in my opinion. Also, the balm stick itself moves around in the packaging and so they got damaged incredibly easily. It’s not very travel friendly because of this but I must say that it was hard to resist taking these babies out with me because the product itself is great!
I love how these balms last whilst hydrate your lips. For £3 you are definitely getting your moneys worth.
Broken Hearted (I love the names MUA!) is a rich pink colour. It is beautiful for the ‘going out’ days but personally I wouldn’t wear it everyday – I’m more of a neutral girl on a day-to-day basis. Even though it is a balm these are very pigmented and the pink shade does show up pretty true to colour on your lips.
Rendezvous (means ‘a meeting at a prearranged time’) is a prefect colour for work and general every day errands. It is a lovely mix of a soft brown/ baby pink colour and I love wearing this on an every day basis. I think that this is perfect for every skin tone too!
I would really recommend these Lip Balm Pens to everybody. These are an essential for a every day makeup kit. Also, they are great for those of you who like a sheer yet true to colour lip colour. Every girl needs one of these in her bag! I am sorry I didn’t upload any pictures of this whilst these were on my lips. No matter how hard I try, they wouldn’t show true to colour so I don’t think it’s fair to show you them.
