My name is Anja and I am a Lip Balm addict! The Canadian Principessa will slowly reveal This is one of my least-guilt inducing purchases but quite possibly the most rewarding one.
The Colour Riche Balm is what i wanted the Revlon Lip Butters to be - moisturizing, shiny, soothing, lovely...basically prettiness in a tube :) The Best Part - since i discovered these little gems, the urge to continue repurchasing the magical Dior Lip Glow has subsided to say the least. I am not saying that i wont buy it again but it may take a while because i find myself using the Riche Balm in Pink Satin a lot more. The funny thing is that the Lip Glow and the Riche Balm tubes are fairly similar in design - the luxury look was certainly achieved by L'Oreal this time around.
The texture of this is sublime - it glides on so easily, almost melting into the lips. I am happy to say that there is no detectable chemical taste and the fragrance is very faint so i don't think it would bother those with scent issues. The shades are soft but always detectable - after all this is a balm not a lipstick so it wouldn't be fair to judge the lack of pigmentation.
I will say that the color payoff is excellent for a lip treatment even in the lighter shades with a finish that isn't so much glossy as it is a sheen. Pink Satin is one of the lightest ones available and it makes my lips light up with a such a beautiful girly glow - compliments and inquiries galore :)
I am hoarding backups as we speak - L'oreal will discontinue this and then what am i going to do?
