It’s no secret by now that I’m a big fan of theBalm liquid lipsticks – I love everything about them from the pigment, to the finish, to the peppermint tingle they give your lips and until last week, I hadn’t worn one for ages.
I bought my first set of minis back in January and loved every shade in the range, so when I spotted a new mini set with different shades a few weeks ago, I obviously had to buy it and try out the other shades.
Today’s shade, Brilliant, is a gorgeous rich pink red shade which has amazing colour pay off as you would expect from theBalm – they are just so good at pigment in all their products, and I love the colour pay off you get from just one layer.
The forumla is creamy on application with a gorgeous peppermint tingle, and though the finish is quite matte, I don’t find it drying at all. I have read some reviews that do find them a little drying, but in my experience they aren’t at all, and I have become a big fan over the past few months.
These sets are great for the purposes of my challenge as I get to try six shades for about €4.50 each – so although they are small, they are very good value in that respect, However, if all the shades weren’t up your street, they are also available in full size and can be bought individually.
