My Experience With VLCC Lovable Lips Mango Lip Balm:
The lip balm comes in a cylindrical twisted stick form enclosed in a white plastic body and a plastic cap. The packaging is simple yet nice. It is in the form of a stick and therefore completely hygienic for usage and you can even carry it while traveling. The lip balm stick is yellow in color, in fact, the exact yellow color of a mango. Although the stick is colored, you will not get any kind of tint on the lips at all. To my horror, the lip balm leaves behind a whitish cast on my lips which you can see in the swatch itself. My lips are already pale and it actually adds up to the paleness even more.
The texture of the lip balm is waxy and nowhere close to moisturizing. When I slather it over my lips, instead of helping my dry flakes it accentuates them, making it more prominent than ever. Moreover, you will feel as if a thick layer of wax has been applied to the lips. There is a very faint aroma of mango in the lip balm and it stays for around an hour and then slowly diminishes. The texture of the lip balm is too much to handle that I can neither wear it alone nor underneath any lipstick or lip gloss.
When you swipe the lip balm once or twice over the lips, you will actually feel nothing except hard wax and slathering it again and again will only make it more. The staying power is around 2-3 hours but in this duration it does more damage to the dry lips rather than helping it. The lip balm is a total failure and I would prefer a simple tub of Vaseline over this dud any given day!
Pros Of VLCC Lovable Lips Mango Lip Balm:
- Simple and sturdy packaging with twisted stick function.
- Aroma of a mango.
Cons Of VLCC Lovable Lips Mango Lip Balm:
- Leaves a whitish cast behind.
- Waxy texture and accentuates the dry flakes.
- No sign of moisturization.
- Staying power is 2-3 hours but in that duration it dries up the lips.
