I’m back with the most gorgeous lip balm ever! Take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the packaging! The packaging was my weakness and I had to buy it and IMBB very sweetly sponsored this for me. I’m grateful to the whole team for that! Let’s get started with this review!
My Experience with MUA Makeup Academy Love Hearts Kiss Me Lip Balm:
Packaging: Adore it! Full marks on the very simple, yet super cute packaging. This lip balm comes in a white screw lid which has a heart printed on it and has the words ‘Kiss Me’ in red. The jar is transparent and its sides have the name of the lip balm and ‘MUA’ printed in red as well. The back side has the ingredients list. The lip balm is pretty big in size and is sleek. I will definitely keep this lippie in my everyday makeup pouch. Full marks for the packaging, if I haven’t said this already! 😛
Color/Pigmentation: This cutie looks bright red in color when you look at it. But, when you swatch it, it comes off as a very cute blue based pink. It looks so adorable! The color is so pretty! It makes your lips look super shiny and pretty! It makes you look innocent and young! I am in love with the color! And, I was even more surprised to see that is it pigmented enough that it won’t look bad on pigmented lips.
This one would look good on all skin tones. However, it would flatter fair to medium skin tones the best (not being a racist here!). On my lips, it gives a healthy sheen and a soft pink tint. I really love how it looks on me. Initially, while swatching it on my palm, I thought it wouldn’t look good on me, but I was happy to be wrong there!
Texture: If the packaging and the color of it wouldn’t have made me love this lip balm, then the texture would have done it! The texture is like melted butter! It’s that smooth and creamy. It’s like a combination of lip cream and lip balm. Super smooth and creamy, yet pigmented. It feels very light on the lips. It is just a bit on the runny side. But, it glides on like a dream! It moisturizes the lips, but doesn’t hydrate them!
Staying Power: Here’s the only dud which I’m going to ignore. It stays on for 2-3 hours without meals or anything. It fades easily with meals and transfers on to the cutlery easily too.
Smell/Taste: It smells so good and delicious! It has the same fragrance as Nature’s Essence Strawberry Lip Balm, but not that strong. It smells sweet and like coconut. But, it’s not that strong. It is muted and doesn’t linger at all! It has got no taste though.
