January Box: Buzz, Balm, and Glo!

 

Hello my Lippie Loves! Here is a review of the entire January Lippie Box!

First off, the box is super cute, I love that it’s pink with the little smooch on the top. I enjoyed the little notecard that tells you about the products, where to find them, also how much they cost! I adore how everything is wrapped up so fancy!

My Magical Star Black Raspberry vanilla soap: These bring back memories of my first ever body care that I wore as a kid. It’s the same exact scent! They are soft, smooth, very sudsy and so cute as little kisses!

My Magical Star Vanilla Cream lip balm: Have you ever smelt vanilla bean ice cream the minute you open that glorious cover off the pint of ice cream? That’s exactly what this smells like! It’s a very smooth natural ingredient formula that is lightweight enough that you will forget you are wearing anything on your lips! But in a good way as it’s very moisturizing. The consistency creates a nice barrier without the heavy feeling.  I was very happy to see that the product in the tin is full to the brim which isn’t always the case with lip tins. If tins bother you because you don’t like to touch your lip balm I recommend investing in a lip brush. They work quite well and that way you don’t miss on the amazing flavors and formulas.  I truly enjoy this balm!

My Magical Star lip scrub in Raspberry: This is my favorite out of the box. Shocking, I know! But let me tell you why: IT SMELLS SO GOOD! It reminds me of Revo’s Raspberry Chocolate Truffle balm from 2015. I could smell it all day long! It’s not greasy or goopy, has very fine sugar (definitely not gritty.) It leaves my lips silky soft and smooth. For those who haven’t used a lip scrub before, this exfoliates your lips. It’s really great in the winter when your lips get dry and start peeling or really any time of year! All you do is rub it on in circular motions then wipe or rinse it off. Then done! You have your super soft kissable lips back!

Glo By Glory 12 hour semi matte liquid lipstick in Love Muffin: This is really fun to use being such a bold color! Read my in-depth review here!

Dr Bang’s Buzzing Lip Freak balm in Ginger-head Man: Some like this balm, some can’t handle the buzz. I used to be unable to handle it. But check out my review of it here to read what changed my mind! If you struggle with liking it, definitely  get excited to read my review – it might cause you to re-think it too!

Lip Freak? Here’s the Buzz!

Hey there Lippie Loves! Here is the scoop on all the buzz about this balm!

Doctor Lip Bang’s Lip Freak is here to freak your lips out! It’s an all-natural lip balm in the scent Ginger-head man. When on your lips, the ginger scent is at comfortable volume that everyone can enjoy! It’s a noticeable scent that will have you sniffing your lips. Also has a taste of ginger if you lick your lips or happen to kiss someone. The brand also states it’s a fun kissing balm as well! 😉

This has a very sturdy cap so no worries of it opening on you! It carries a circus like feel to the packaging with the words “Lip Freak” dressed in marquee lights. It’s very moisturizing, has high shine with a smooth, soft, medium weight consistency.

Now, this balm claims to be “THE STRONGEST BUZZ BALM IN THE WORLD!” Which I’m here to say is true! This isn’t my first rodeo with this brand mind you. If you come from my Instagram account and have been around for a while, you would know this. I had the Bubble Trouble balm and innocently lathered this on. My lips couldn’t take the heat causing me to hate the balm although I really liked the scent!

With that knowledge, I went in a tad bit daintier which caused me to end up liking it. Putting on a lot of this product is not for the weak at heart as this balm knows how to buzz!
There is nothing like this product on the market that I’ve ever seen. It’s very unique! Definitely recommend trying it!
Also just a side note, in the ingredients list it states it has almond oil and cinnamon oil in it so if you’re allergic to either, just be warned.
Stay tuned for more reviews!

Oh Glo by Glory!

Hello my Lippie Loves! Here is a Review of Glory’s Glo 12 hour semi-matte liquid lipstick in the shade “Love Muffin”  which is a blue based Cherry Red. (Click here to shop!)

First off the packaging is super cute with the little hearts and it says “Glo Stix” on it which is a cute little pun! I like that there are instructions on the side of the box for newbies like me to understand how to use this! It’s cruelty-free, also comes with .14oz of product.
Now I’m not sure why it calls itself a semi-matte because it’s extremely matte once it dries! This is also a shade I could see working for most skin tones!

When I followed the instructions of using a balm first then doing a second layer to intensify the color, I had problems. It was super messy getting all over me including my teeth and somehow under my chin! Also with the second layer it would come off very easily when eating, drinking, or when I kissed my hand to test it.

So here is what you do to make it work: the balm is optional, if you do use balm use a lightweight formula and do NOT put on a second layer of the liquid lipstick. Yes it gives it a nice darkened shade but it will come off whereas the first coat is perfectly pigmented and mess free!
It does feel a little sticky even when it’s dried but it becomes fully matte to a beautiful color that doesn’t feather in its process of drying.   The blue tone to this shade ensures your teeth will not give off a yellow sheen.  Also it’s such a statement shade everyone will notice! I got a lot of compliments when wearing this. I used a lip balm over it to help the removing of the color from my lips which left a nice stain on my lips for a hint of color.

Overall it’s a great color to spice up your day or night plus it is easy to carry in your purse!

Stay tuned for more reviews from me!
