makes my mattes and liquid lipsticks a little more comfortable
I love matte lip products because they last but I don't love how they dry the lips out and make them look cracked. I bought this and really didn't expect much but was pleasantly surprised. I totally expected it to undermine the lip colour and make it pill or be greasy and mix with the lip colour and make it come off. It did neither of those things. Wish I could give it 3.5 stars because it has some issues.
It comes in a sleek white tube and I'm not really happy with the packaging. The lid is more than half the base, so it's difficult to get on and off without damaging the balm inside. I took a big chunk out of the balm because it sits up above the rim of the base and if you're not super-careful to make sure it's dead centre as you apply the lid you'll make a mess.
It is a slanted cut balm with a soft consistency and smells (and tastes) quite strongly of berries. I wouldn't recommend leaving it where it could be exposed to heat as it is such a soft consistency. I do like how it makes my dry matte products look and feel more natural but don't like the packaging and being so careful with the soft consistency.
