Don’t you just adore the neon pink color? :)
This (overpriced) lip balm was released by Lancôme earlier this year for the In Love collection (Spring 2013) and even though it was supposed to be a limited edition, it’s still available for purchase online and at the Lancôme counter.
I was so drawn to the neon pink – so much that I talked myself into buying a US$26 lip balm! Knowing full well it’s just a sheer lip balm that I could probably get something similar from anywhere else for a lot cheaper. But who can resist again, the neon pink, really!
The good thing is, this isn’t quite like any lip balm because it delivers such high shine with incredibly lightweight feeling. The application gives almost like a thin clear film protecting your lips, keeping them hydrated for the entire wear (which was sadly no more than a couple of hours, but my lips still feel soft long after though). The intimidating pink color actually goes on sheer leaving just a tiny hint of pink on the lips so you can go crazy with this, it’s impossible to overdo, and since it’s such a breeze to use, you can reapply as many times as you want.
I detected a soft sweet scent almost like vanilla that dissipates soon upon application. My lips are naturally quite pigmented so the pink isn’t as pronounced as I’d like. But if you have pale lips, I think this will look gorgeous on you.
