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.

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!!

Katherine, LIP GLOSS, Lips, NC25 | by — January 8, 2014

Brand: MAC
Range: Lipglass
Shade: Clear
Swatched by the lovely: Katherine

A unique lip gloss that can create a high gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. Designed to be worn on its own, over Lip Pencil or Lipstick, Clear Lipglass is the perfect product for creating shine that lasts. It contains Jojoba Oil to help soften and condition the lips and a tiny bead of this highly concentrated product is all that’s needed to cover the lip area. Clear Lipglass can be mixed with other products, like Pigments, and can be applied anywhere on the body except for the eye area to create interesting effects.

  • Katherine describes this as an excellent gloss to apply over lipstick as it doesn’t cause the lip colour to sink into lines, instead it stays as a mirror-like layer over the original lipstick.  A small amount is all that’s needed to achieve a high impact glass-like finish.
  • Read the rest of Katherine’s blog post to find out how sticky this gloss is compared to other brands.
  • Thanks Katherine for the lovely swatch!

Brand: ASAP
Range: hydrating lip balm + SPF15
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • ASAP hydrating lip balm+ is a cosmeceutical lip treatment to treat cold sores, sun damage, cracked and chapped lips, thanks to ingredients like Vitamin B3, anti-viral Alpine Rose and Bisabolo (an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial ingredient found in chamomile).
  • Instantly soothes and comforts dry chapped lips, coating it with a non-sticky gloss-like barrier that leaves lips with a healthy glossy sheen and the added benefit of SPF 15 for sun protection.
  • Absorbs fully within a few minutes, and gives a slightly cooling sensation.
  • Verdict: I like this more as a daily lip barrier to protect lips from the elements, but when it comes to healing severely chapped lips, it didn’t really heal mine with the same efficacy I get with brands like Uriage, Carmex or Lanolips. As I don’t suffer from cold sores, I can’t comment on its anti-inflammatory properties, but seeing as it’s one of the fastest selling product from the ASAP range this lip balm seems to strike a chord for other people. If you’ve tried it on cold sores, I’d love to hear your feedback on how it worked for you!

MOLTON BROWN Pep-Rich Lip Booster – Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Brand: Molton Brown
Range: Pep-Rich Lip Booster
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Molton Brown Pep-Rich Lip Booster features a collagen-boosting peptide that gives the appearance of fuller lips, papaya extract (exfoliates & smoothes) and african mango (softens and protects).
  • Texture is balmy with a clear shimmery appearance.
  • To use, wind up the applicator to extract a small amount on the lip brush & smooth onto lips.
  • On immediate application, my lips appeared fuller, lines softened and moisturised.  I repeat – results are IMMEDIATE.
  • Verdict: The pictures speak for themselves – I am AMAZED at the results & am hooked on this like crack.  The sad part is that for $59 AUD it only contains 3.5ml of product and has an expiry of 6 months!! That makes this lip balm more expensive than high end eye creams.  I’m pacing myself for the remaining 6 months of use, reserving it only for special occasions and lip tutorials.

RRP: $59 AUD (3.5ml) available at Molton Brown at & David Jones (Australia)
