|Sweet Tart - Peach Parfait - Strawberry Shortcake|
Sweet Tart is a lovely and pigmented bright pink which has a nice shine to it. It is very easy too apply and feels great on my lips. Peach Parfait has a slight colour on my lips but is definitely more on the nude side which is complemented with a gold glitter. The glitter feels quite gritty on my lips which i don't really like but the colour is pretty. Strawberry shortcake gives a nice pink glow to the lips without being too bright, this one i would get away with wearing to work.
My final thoughts
I'm going to make a very controversial statement here, i have no idea what all the fuss has been about. I think they are
ok nice, they apply well and are soft and moisturising. I like them but i do not love them like i thought i would. They simply do not justify the £7.99rrp price, this is so expensive for a drug store lip balm. No way would i have bought these without all of the hype, but due to the amount of fantastic reviews i thought something amazing was going to happen once i wore them on my lips as the initial swatching did not excite me.
To put it bluntly they are nothing special. I heave read reviews from America where i have seen peopleinding these at $4, roughly £2.50. At this price i would buy the whole collection, they will be great to have in my handbag for on the go, but at nearly eight pounds there is no way i will buy more, i will stick to my pink Vaseline (£1.99) thank you.
What do you think?
