Labello CareGloss & Shine
I have to say that I am in love with this balm. The reason I love it is because it combines two products into one: gloss and balm. Whenever I wear this gloss my lips never feel dried out, cracked,etc. With many other glosses, after a couple of hours my lips start peeling, and I get these little crumbs of dead skin around my lips(sounds gross, I know), but I never have this problem with this gloss. In addition to this, it is really really glossy, like unbelievably glossy!
Here, take a look:
Isn't it pretty? I have it in Transparent, which is a clear gloss with pink and gold shimmer, so it gives my lips a bit of sparkle as well, which is great because I'm not a really big fan of completely clear gloss.
Here are a few swatches:
Can you see the pretty shimmer? There are only a couple of downsides to this gloss. One, it is a bit on the greasy side, but this is balanced out by the fact that it doesn't leave a sticky film on your lips when it wears off. Also, it isn't sold in the US, as far as I know, but you can easily buy it off line or trade for it through MUA. I have a friend send me some every few months. If you're looking for a dupe, Nivea came out with a line of balms and has a similar product on the market, reviews on those coming soon! The packaging is decent too--the cap stays on, it doesn't leak, and there's a good amount of product in there. Since the formula is very liquid, a little goes a long way so it'll last a while. I would really recommend this balm to anyone, especially as it is winter and and lips are dryer this time of year.
