PALMER’S Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate & Cherry Lip Balm SPF 15 – Review, Photos, Swatches


LIP TREATMENTS, Lips, PALMERS, Yishan | by — March 11, 2014


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.

TOM FORD Lipstick – Cherry Lush – Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Brand: Tom Ford
Range: Lipstick
Shade: Cherry Lush
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

Tom Ford Lip Colors are formulated with rare and exotic ingredients including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomile flower oil create an ultra-creamy texture with an incredibly smooth application. Specially treated color pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.

  • Cherry Lush – a vibrant blue red is a mini-sized lipstick that I picked up as a Gift With Purchase when I ticked Tom Ford “Jasmin Rouge” fragrance off my lust-have list.
  • The new Tom Ford Lipsticks (black & gold packaging) are an improved formula from the previous version (white & gold) – a lot more moisturising, ultra creamy and feels soft and plush.
  • The intense pigment & pliable texture makes it effortless to achieve a precise bold lip even when applying directly from the bullet as it glides evenly across the lip surface.
  • The pigment is so finely milled that it does an amazing job at filling in all the lip crevices without needing a lip brush to blend, and takes several times to remove all the pigment completely from lips.
  • Unlike the previous formula, you no longer need to use a lip balm beforehand, as it’s moisturising enough on its own.
  • Lasting power is moderate, and fades into a diffused finish after a few hours.
  • Verdict: If I had to choose between Cherry Lush and the red lipsticks from the Jasmin Rouge collection, it comes down to finish and hue.  I’d recommend the Jasmin Rouge range if you like a soft-matte finish, and Cherry Lush for a creamy finish.  The 4 shades in Jasmin Rouge lean towards warm tones, whereas there is no doubt Cherry Lush is a blue red which suit all skin tones, particularly fair.

Brand: Maybelline
Range: Baby Lips Loves Color
Shades: Cherry Kiss, Berry Crush, Rose Addict, Pink Lolita
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • For the longest time, I have been wishing that Maybelline would release tinted versions of their flavoured Baby Lips.   Finally they have released 4  new tinted shades – Cherry Kiss, Berry Crush, Rose Addict and Pink Lolita.
  • They are a sheerer than I hoped for, but is perfect for those who like to keep things subtle.
  • The reason I love Baby Lips so much is because it’s a great daily lip balm that’s light in texture, gives a healthy sheen, contains SPF20 and looks great under most lipsticks – all for only $3.95 AUD.
  • The only setback is that it’s not rich enough for severely dry lips, or as an overnight treatment.
  • Verdict: I keep one in my bag, one on my “swatch station” and my blogging desk, and have a few more in my drawer as backups.  Also perfect for girls that are a few years off from being allowed to wear lippies, and want to enhance their lips without looking too grown up.

MAYBELLINE Color Sensational Lip Color – Mango Diamonds, Cherry Candy

Brand: Maybelline
Range: Color Sensational Lip Color
Shades: Mango Diamonds, Cherry Candy
Swatched by yours truly: Akisa

  • Maybelline have added 10 new shades to the Color Sensational range, which I’ve spread over 3 posts. This is the last of them, finishing off with a juicy mango and cherry red.
  • Surprisingly pigmented for its translucent & lightweight feel, and stays true to its signature creamy formula.
  • Tastes fruity & juicy, reminds me of fruit chews like Starbursts candy. One of the YUMMIEST lipsticks I’ve tasted to date.
  • Verdict: Two thumbs up to both shades – I love how pigmented they are!  To get the juiciest finish out of these lipsticks, I recommend applying over Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm, as they can catch onto chapped lips if you’re going through a dry patch in the afternoon.

All swatches applied with a slick of Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm, for added juice factor.
