Today’s post is a review and swatches of The Balm Liquid Lipsticks. They aren’t new by any means, but I don’t hear enough about them. So I thought I’d share what I think of them in this post.
If you want to know my two cents on this product, make sure to keep reading.
These liquid lipsticks are really great in many different ways. They come in a variety of colors and they’re quite unique.
The formula in this product is really good. Unlike other liquid lipstick formulas, this one feels very hydrating and even though it’s mousse-y it’s not thick at all. The only drawback to this formula is that it applies a bit patchy, but it layers very well. If you’re sensitive to scents, keep in mind that they smell strongly of peppermint. But if you don’t mind scents, it’s quite enjoyable.
These liquid lipsticks take a while to dry and they’re not completely transfer proof. However, they are quite long lasting. If you’re eating or drinking you might have to touch up but if you’re not they’ll last even longer on your lips.
One of my favorite things about this product is the packaging. The Balm’s packaging is always super cute and this product is no exception. You can see the color clearly through the tube and the wand is very easy to work with. The only thing that bugs me is that all three of my liquid lipsticks leaked at the top. I don’t know why or if I got bad ones but they leaked really badly and it’s a bit messy when I apply them. Let me know if you’ve had the same problem!
Getting a hold of these products can be a bit hard as well. I got mine at Duane Read and you can only get them on amazon, the balm’s website or Kohl’s. It’s not impossible to buy them but you’ll have to take some extra steps if you want to get these.
The price of these liquid lipsticks is $17 for 0.25 fl. oz. I think it’s a fair price for what you’re getting. They’re not drugstore by any means but they’re not as high up there in price as other liquid lipsticks.
Overall I think these are some great liquid lipsticks. If you’re thinking about buying them I say get one and try it out. If you have very dry lips this is a formula that I would recommend. Or if you’re just looking for some new liquid lipsticks to try then go for these.
