Chapstick Fresh Effects Lip Balm

Chapstick has a new lip balm out, ChapStick Fresh Effects, in two flavors: Refreshing Mandarin and Invigorating Green Tea Mint.

Chapstick Fresh Effects Balm

I gave both flavors a try and was quite pleased with them.  The balm itself has some mint and other ingredients that create a light tingling and cooling sensation. Go figure that I threw out the box before I took a look to see just what ingredient made it tingle. I suspect menthol or eucalyptus, or something similar. Anyway, I rather liked the sensation.

The texture of these balms is quite nice. It is a bit creamier than standard Chapstick, which tends to be quite a bit on the waxy side. Yet, it isn’t so creamy or oil based that constant reapplication is needed. I tend to like my balms to be in that middle road area.

Mostly though, these balms taste good! I really liked both flavors, especially the mandarin one. You can find Chapstick Fresh effects at just about any drugstore, grocery store or big box retailer.

Note: This review is based on items sent to me by a representative of Chapstick.


Korres Love Your Lips Collection

The Korres Love Your Lips Collection is a collection of three pretty darn nice lip glosses and a pomegranate lip butter. Korres makes their lip glosses with cherry oil, which manages to moisturize, smooth, and taste good. In fact they taste REALLY good.  I don’t really care for cherry flavor, but I loved these! The glosses give good shine and are not at all sticky.

Philosophy the Supernatural Collection Lip Gloss

philosophy supernatural lip gloss Philosophy has a new makeup collection out and sent me a couple of  Philosophy The Supernatural Superglossy™ Lip Glosses SPF 15 to try. Overall, this is a nice gloss if you want both pigment and a non-sticky moisturizing gloss. The SPF 15 is an added bonus

The gloss is flavored, and while I have seen one review that disliked the flavor, I was fine with it. It seemed to me like a mint based flavor with perhaps a hint of vanilla. The flavor is quite light. The gloss is decently pigmented and runs a bit to the sheer side, but is not near as sheer as say a light tinted squeeze tube type of gloss. The best part is that it is absolutely non-sticky and has a great moisturizing feel to it.

Below are swatches of the shades Live in the Moment and Share the Love.
