Today’s review will be on a newly launched Smoothies lip balm from Street Wear. Let’s get to the review!
Price: INR 150 (currently offered at 135/-)
My Experience with Street Wear Color Rich Smoothies Lip Balm – Plum Pluck:
Packaging: These lip balms come in an outer cardboard packaging with the details printed at the back side. The actual lip balm resembles their lipsticks. It comes in a black flimsy plastic packaging. If you look closely, you will notice that the packaging is color coded because the picture of the girl’s background is the same as the shade of the lip balm.
Color: ‘Plum Pluck’ is a purple-coloured balm, but the shade hardly shows up on the lips. It is a very light tinted lip balm. The lip balm gives just a slight wash of colour. But it would do nothing on pigmented lips. You could layer on this lip balm for slightly more pigmentation.
Texture: The texture of the lip balm is very smooth and creamy. It isn’t a thick lip balm and gives a nice sheen to the lips. But do not layer on more, as it bleeds. The lip balm gives a cooling effect on the lips, one thing I love about it. The cool tingling effect lasts for 5 minutes. It provides moisture to dry lips but does nothing to hydrate your lips.
Smell: It smells lightly of peppermint that I adore. In the hot summers, it is the perfect smell for me to cool down a bit. It is a refreshing smell and very mild. You hardly notice it.
Staying power: It stays on me for 3 hours and then you need to re-apply it. It doesn’t last any meal. When it fades away, your lips won’t immediately feel dry and parched. It does hydrate a little bit. But after 1-2 hours, you would need a lip balm.

I wouldn’t repurchase this one because I already have more than one of these. You can skip these. At this price, they are average lip balms.
