Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1Mango~Review and Swatches

I’m someone who loves collecting lip balms in all colors, flavors and packaging. Some of the cuties are amazing but a lot of them are so sticky or waxy that it ends up on my heels at night as I don’t have the heart to trash it all away which,by the way, works wonders #life hack 1. So, on today’s post, I’ll be sharing a review on the Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1Mango which happens to be a part of a gift from a very sweet blogger friend.

My take on Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1Mango:

This little cutie is from a Kiehl’s “Love” limited edition that comes in a set of three different fruity flavors. You can purchase it individually as well. It is sealed in a white tube with a black colored screw top. The product description and the ingredients has been mentioned on it. I like the simple yet convenient packaging that is sturdy and easy to throw it in my purse while travelling. The only issue I faced was the applicator as it tends to ooze out way more product than required. I need to use my finger during application.

Color: It has a light faded yellow color but it appears transparent after application as seen on the swatches below.

Texture: The formula is truly awesome. The non-sticky texture is what made me fall in love with it. It glides smoothly over my lips and stays put. It has a shiny look that appeals to me and sometimes I even apply it over a matte lipstick for a glossy effect. I love how it made my lips feel supple and moisturised in a couple of minutes.

Scent: OMG! The scent is A-MA-ZINGG! I love mangoes so anything and everything that comes in this flavor is sure to make me dig it.

Pigmentation: Transparent when swiped, though the product appears light yellow in color.

Staying power: It doesn’t last long on me. It stayed for 2 to 3 hours without snacks. A reapplication is required.
