Obsession Du Jour 7.28.09


I just realized I have never before reviewed my absolute must have favorite lip product.

 I originally found this product browsing through SPACENK in soho one day. It was in a fishbowl at the cash wrap, an attempt to coerce you to make an impulse buy at you point of sale andddd of course it worked on me...always does and I even know about these :)

Anyway, I always am immediately drawn to lip balms and especially ones that give you that milky nude look, which this does. This is a thick menthol like balm. The color is a milky white but on your lips looks like a milky baby pink, similar to EZ Baby tendertone. This is a product I have gone through a few times. I am about to run out again and I plan on buying another in London on Saturday. Another point is I love the packaging, it is simple and small, perfect for carrying around. It is very moisturizing and thick, it gives a cooling sensation as well but it not overwhelming and goes away shortly. I also love that it has SPF but no scent or taste of it in the balm. Also, another winning point is the length of wear, usually I am reaching for lip balm every 10 minutes because it wears right off after drinking water, talking or doing whatever it is. This lasts and lasts and lasts. I LOVE IT. 

I strongly urge you guys to try this baby out if you can find it. It is usually sold out online at SpaceNK and EveLom.com (I just found it at beauty.com with free shipping!). However, you will not be disappointed. The only drawback at being such a small pot, it is quite pricey at .2oz for $25.

Let me know if you guys decide to try it out.
