A couple of days ago I reviewed one coloured lip balm from LipIce called “Edgy Plum” and today I have the shade “Perky Red” to review or you guys! I was actually hunting for a red tint lip balm because I have loads of pinks in my kitty. Finally got one! Now let’s see whether this lived up to my expectations or not.
Price: Rs 300/-

My Experience with LipIce Color Perky Red:
Lipice lip balms are something that I have loved because they leave a beautiful tint on my lips that stay all day long. I have used the sheer ones which gave pink tint and made my lips look cuter, but I got even more excited when I saw some coloured ones online.
Packaging: One of the main reasons for picking these up is the packaging in the first place. The lip balm comes in a very cute and a pretty looking pack with butterflies all over it in red colour with sparkles and frosty fonts over it. 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 with the name. 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 won’t matter!
Shade: The shade “Perky red” looked like a light tint of red initially when I swiped it. But when I started to rub it a bit more, it developed to a very beautiful red shade. It is a bright and totally perky shade as claimed. It is definitely a bold red but not as bold as a lipstick. It does not have any visible shimmers to it but the glossy shine of the lip balm is amazing. The red pout instantly perks up my face and adds a very nice glow to my face. It will compliment all the skin-tones and it is a great one for every-day use. It makes my lips look absolutely cute and healthy. The shade is perfect for those days when I am going probably to meet my friends in the evening and want red lips, but not bold red lips! And in such a situation, this lip balm comes to the rescue. The colour melts down or I should say lightens down to a sheer red shade after an hour or so. The stain stays on my lips till 5 hours, so, very happy with the shade.
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 through-out. The lip balm looks glossy initially, but after some-time it settles to a semi matte finish with a sheen. It does not settle in 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.
Staying Power: The lip balm looks very fresh for the initial 2 hours and it stays on my lips for 4-5 hours without munching. The colour and the lip balm get ripped off partly if I sip on water a lot or eat a lot. It then settles to a stain which stays till I remove it off. I love the staying power because none of the lip balms stay so long, so a total thumbs up for these!

Will I Repurchase/Recommend LipIce Color Perky Red?
Yes I will get this because the tinted red balms are pretty limited. Over it the pigmentation and intensity is pretty much unbeatable as far as lip balms are concerned. Do give this a shot!
If you are looking for some decent shades for daily-wear or workplaces, then the brown, plum and the mauve are really good ones. And the rest of the shades give you nice bold and poppy pout
