Brand: Palmer’s
Range: Cocoa Butter Formula
Flavour: Dark Chocolate & Cherry Lip Balm SPF 15
Reviewed by yours truly: Yishan

  • A whiff of this lip balm & I’m instantly reminded of Cherry Ripe, Australia’s oldest chocolate bar that has cherries and coconut coated in dark chocolate.
  • It’s not only deliciously scented, but also contains anti-oxidants and SPF 15 for sun protection.
  • The silky texture is thanks to dimethicone (a silicone-based polymer) which leaves lips with a diffused finish, but it doesn’t smooth lip lines.
  • I did try to swatch this on my arm, but it only left a subtle dark cherry stain so I skipped photographing it.
  • Verdict:  The subtle “dark chocolate cherry” tint on the lips will appeal to those with darker lips, as there are not that many lip tints out there with such a shade. Despite the “ultra moisturising claims” it’s lightweight in moisture for my lip condition, making this product better suited to younger lips or those who live in more humid climates.

BILLIE GOAT SOAP Lip Balm – Review, Photos, Swatches

Brand: Billie Goat Soap
Range: Lip Balm
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Billie Goat Soap is famous for their goat milk products (soaps, body wash, moisturisers) formulated for sensitive skin especially for babies.
  • Having tried their soaps and moisturisers previously, I was intrigued to try their lip balm range when I saw it at the pharmacy as it’s made from Australian goats milk and skin loving oils.
  • To my surprise, it wasn’t milky in appearance, rather it was a clear balm that includes ingredients like natural emollients, triglycerides, coconut oil, jojoba oil, cocoa seed buter, beeswax and Vitamins C, B1, B6, B12 and E.
  • It melts really quickly and the oils leaves lips with a high gloss clear shine.
  • Available in 3 flavours – Natural, Peach and Pear & Mango.  No parabens, SLS, fragrance, colour and not tested on animals.
  • Verdict: It’s with mixed emotions that I give this a thumbs down. Whilst it does mositurise lips, I felt the formula is too oily / emollient and not well balanced making it absorb so quickly that my lips are left bare once absorbed.  If you’re in the market for a completely natural lip balm, I’d recommend Lanolips 101 Ointment over this one.

Brand: Clarins
RangeHydra Quench Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Clarins Hydra Quench Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm is a rich, protective treatment balm that contains shea butter, wild mango and Vitamin E, olive extract, and rice oil plus a lip plumping complex.
  • My dehydrated lips immediately feel softened, plumped with moisture and protected by a rich salve barrier.
  • Leaves lips with a glossy finish. It supposedly leaves a healthy flush but since my lips are naturally flushed I didn’t notice any difference.
  • The slanted tip makes it easy to apply hygienically on the go.
  • Verdict: There are only a few lip balms that do such a fabulous job of moisturising to the extent that they melt my lip flakes, and this is one of them.  Any lip sins I’ve committed during the week are all forgiven with a full day’s application of this lip balm. I have it permanently in my weekend bag and have gotten so hooked on this lip balm that I have stopped applying lip colour!!

Brand: Bobbi Brown
Range: Lip Color – Shimmer Finish
Shade: Pink Apricot Shimmer #11
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Shimmer Finish range of Bobbi Brown Lip Colors feature light reflecting pearls for a highly reflective multidimensional colour.
  • Packed with luxurious butters and oils to nourish and condition lips, but I find that I still need to apply lip balm beforehand for added moisture for the shimmer finish to look their best.
  • Pink Apricot Shimmer is described as a “bright pink coral” with gold pearl shimmers.
  • Verdict: This will appeal to those that want a multidimensional finish without needing to layer on gloss for a luminous effect.  On a personal front, I find that shimmery lipsticks looks distracting on me,  and I much prefer shimmer on my eyes than lips

Brand: Revlon
Range: Super Lustrous Lipgloss
Shades: Berry Allure, Sugar Violet, Fuchsia Finery, Pink Pop, Pango Peach, Snow Pink, Super Natural, Rosy Future, Kiss Me Coral, Fatal Apple, Raising Rouge
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Super Lustrous Lipglosses are Revlon’s newest addition to their lip gloss range, and come in a silky formula that boosts hydration and subtly plumps lips.
  • Available in 12 shades in Australia, all of which are featured in this post.
  • I’m really impressed by the pigmentation of these lipgloss, in that even the sheerest formula gives a beautiful soft veil of colour that looks great even on its own.
  • Non-tacky and feels really smooth and moisturising with a high shine.
  • Verdict: These are really great quality for their price point, and can be worn on their own as a sheer MLBB gloss.  With wedding season at its peak at this time of year in Australia, these glosses are an affordable choice for the bridal party that’s easy to squeeze in an evening bag and touch up throughout the day.
