Skin tone- Medium Fair, Warm Undertones
I have tried makeup tools from BH Cosmetics but I have never used their makeup products like lipsticks, eye shadows, etc. I love their makeup brushes to the core. Though, I already have two sets of brushes from this brand, still I picked two more, crazy me. I get attracted to their funky packaging. So, I grabbed this balm stick along with them. Keep on reading for more details.

My Experience with BH Cosmetics Dressed Up Party Girl Twist Moisturizing Balm Stick:
The balm stick comes packed in a bright pink and purple colored cardboard packaging. The outer packaging bears necessary product details like its description, ingredients, shade, etc. The outer carton looks very attractive and girly. The lip balm stick is in the form jumbo retractable pencil. The jumbo pencil is bright pink in color. It has a regular twist up mechanism at its base that works pretty fine. There is silver detailing on the pencil that looks nice. I really love the packaging of this lip balm. The cap of the lip balm stick fits securely and does not come off while carrying around. But, it would have given more mental satisfaction, if there was a “click” while shutting the cap. The retractable pencil form makes this lip balm more hygienic than tub packaging. This chubby crayon is sleek and will not take much space in my vanity. Overall, the packaging is lovely and it has no flaws.
The shade “Dressed Up” is a frosty baby pink shade. This shade is quite very light for Indian skin tones. Hence, it will wash out average Indian skin tones for sure. It washes me out very badly. There are fine micro shimmers in the lip balm, which gives this lip balm a subtle frosty finish. Personally, I am not a fan of frosty lip colors. But, this one looks subtle and nice. It would have worked better for my skin tone, if it had a deeper color. The lip balm is decently pigmented. I am quite impressed with the pigmentation. It gives close to opaque finish in two-three swipes. It has a mild and refreshing fragrance, which is surely non-bothering.
Texture of this lip balm is something for which I have fallen in love. It is soft, smooth and very creamy. It glides effortlessly on the lips without any tugging or pulling. The formula is lightweight and feels ultra comfortable on the lips. It does not feel heavy or sticky on the lips. The lip balm is nice and moisturizing in nature. It keeps my lips moisturized for really long. This lip balm has good hydrating properties that help to keep my lips healthy and nourished for long. The lip balm makes my lips soft. It deeply nourishes the lips and helps in healing chapped lips too.
The staying power of the lip balm is some 4-5 hours. Though, the color fades away in the mean time but my lips stay moisturized for a long period of time. Once the color goes away, the shimmers become more visible and give a chunky appearance. The lip balm does not survive a meal and requires an instant reapplication after that. Overall, I am happy with the quality of this lip balm stick but the shade “Dressed Up” is not meant for Indian skin tones.
