Almost all the shops that I went to said that this lip balm has not arrived yet. They just had a single piece that too in a shade that I didn’t liked, but one day I got almost all the variant in a small shop where I least expected. I picked up two shades; one of them is juicy berry. Read on to know how these juicy lip balms performed.

My experience with Elle 18 Juicy Lip Balm in Juicy Berry:
This juicy lip balm comes in a tube packaging with a slanted tip for the ease of application. A very similar version of the Elle 18 lip smoothies. This juicy lip balms come in outer plastic covers somewhat like other lip balms available in the market. The price is hiked from 85 to 110 and the SA said that they have moisturizing formula in them with just a hint of color. And she mentioned, this is not a gloss but a lip balm with just a hint of color. So don’t expect much color. Honest SA I must say.
The reason I bought this was I don’t have any Elle 18 lip smoothies and this juicy balms don’t have any shimmers. They are like some liquid lipsticks without the pigmentation. This would look super over a matte lipstick.
The shade I got was named juicy berry, which is a nice creamy berry pink color. The color will not show up much on pigmented lips. This lip balm is creamy and thus can’t be layered on and on. This will look superb over peach lipsticks, pink lipsticks and even coral pink lipsticks.
The color of this lip balm stays for 1 hour but the stickiness or rather the creaminess stays for another hour. I don’t mind applying this after an hour. This lip balm smells like candy. I like its smell, but this may be a problem for some.
The last thing I want to say is this is neither a great gloss nor a good lip balm. But these are something hard to ignore considering the price and these are superb thing to wear over a lipstick. We don’t generally find such inexpensive lip gloss without shimmers or glitters.
