Despite being a hardcore lip balm hoarder, I restricted myself this year because I already had bunches of lip balms. But I gave in a bit when I saw these super tinted lip balms from LipIce. The color range looked very pretty, hence I picked up 2 of these. The shades I picked are “Edgy Plum” and “Perky Red”, and the pick for the day is the plum one. So let’s get started.

My Experience with LipIce Color Edgy Plum:
I have always loved Lipice lip balms because they leave a beautiful tint on my lips that stays all day long. I have used the sheer ones too which gave a pink tint and made my lips look cuter, but I got even more excited when I saw some coloured ones online.
One of the main reasons for picking these up is the packaging. The lip balm comes in a very cute and a pretty looking package with butterflies all over it in plum colour with sparkles and frosty fonts. The packaging totally stole my heart and I did not feel like opening these up at all, but had to. 😀 The lip balm comes in a metallic, silver base with sparkles along with a white cap.
The base has a label which mentions the shade name. It can be easily carried around in the pocket, clutch or a hand-bag. The twisty thing at the bottom works very fine, so I am all cool with the packaging. The price might seem a little high because we get tinted lip balms for somewhere around 150-200 bucks, but these are highly pigmented, so doesn’t matter.
The shade “Edgy Plum” is a deep plum shade with brown hints added to it which makes the shade a unique one. It isn’t a fresh juicy plum, it is more of a decent shade rather than a bold plum one. The lip balm has some micro shimmers to it which don’t bother at all. In fact, these shimmers add a glossy shine which makes my lips look pouty and fuller. It is a great one for every-day use for women who love plums and browns.
Also it makes a really good shade for office too. It definitely complements all skintones nicely. But I do not find this shade “edgy”, like it states. It is very decent and not at all bold or edgy in any way. But the shade is highly pigmented and 2-3 swipes will build up the colour beautifully.
Texture and consistency:
The texture is very smooth and non-gritty. It has an amazing balmy texture that makes it glide super smoothly on my lips. The consistency is very soft, but the lip balm does not chip or break while applying it. The formula is non-drying and keeps my lips hydrated throughout. The lip balm looks glossy initially, but after sometime it settles to a semi matte finish with a sheen. It does not settle into the fine lines but it does transfer since it is balmy. It might dry out my lips after 3-4 hours, but I won’t mind a little touch-up.
The lip balm looks very fresh for the initial 2 hours and it stays on my lips for 5 hours without munching. The colour and the lip balm gets ripped off partly if I sip on water a lot or eat a lot. It then settles to a stain which stays until I remove it. I love the staying power because none of the lip balms stay for as long, so a total thumbs up. 🙂
Pros of LipIce Color Edgy Plum:
• Very pretty, colourful and cute packaging
• The lip balm is very convenient to carry and use
• The shade “Edgy Plum” is a deep plum with little brown hints which make it absolutely wearable
• It complements all the skin tones and adds some freshness to the face
• The texture of the lip balm is super smooth and glides like butter on the lips
• The pigmentation is intense, considering it is a lip balm
• It keeps my lips hydrated and melts down the chapped portions on my lips too
• The lip balm stays for 4-5 hours without food, and 3 hours with food and water sips
• A lot of pretty shades to choose from
Cons of LipIce Color Edgy Plum:
• Might turn out a little expensive at 300 bucks
• Not everyone will like this shade
• It is not that “edgy”
Will I Repurchase/Recommend LipIce Color Edgy Plum?
Not this shade, but I definitely want to try other shades from the range because each and every shade is unique. I definitely recommend this because it is the most pigmented lip balm I have tried so far.
If you are looking for some decent shades for daily-wear or workplace, then the brown, plum and the mauve are really good in this range. And the rest of the shades give you nice, bold and poppy pout.
