Looks like I got at least one thing off of my April Wish List for the month! Hurray for Winky Lux and their Flower Balm. So the big question is will the product live up to they hype? As always I will provide a brief description of the company’s product, then I will go over the cons/pros, and give my final thoughts on the matter.
Enjoy the ride Grimms!
“Bestselling lip stain! This balm stain applies on clear then reacts with your skin’s pH levels, uniquely creating the perfect shade of pink lips just for you. Each Flower Balm contains a real chrysanthemum in the color of your choice. Not to mention, it’s coconut scented, giving it an aroma so enticing you’ll want to wear it every day” –Winky Lux
I always give this as a con just to put it out there but for me personally it isn’t a deal breaker. That being said Winky Lux products are only available online. You cannot walk into a makeup store and purchase these products. You have to buy them online!
Since this is a lip stain I have noticed that it doesn’t necessarily apply evenly. What I mean by that his that the shade of pink looks lighter and darker across my lips without constant coverage. Honestly I feel like that’s just the cross you bear when you rock a lip stain.
You will have to reapply multiple times a day. This stain is not long lasting so keep that in mind. Don’t forget to bring this along in your purse or whatever because you are going to need to reapply regularly. There is no getting around that.
Also this product is $14 so to be fair this isn’t the cheapest lip stain you will ever purchase.
First off I would just like to give it up for the packaging. Honestly I really do feel like that is important. I mean I’m paying $14 for this lip stain! I want a show and Winky Lux doesn’t disappoint. Not only does it come in these adorable little pill capsule like lipstick tubes they also each have their own little chrysanthemum embedded in the clear lipsticks.
That’s freaking classy kids.
They smell like coconut goodness. I’ve mentioned this before but I’m pretty smell sensitive. I do not appreciate overpowering smells at all. These smell great and it’s not a strong smell. It’s light and perfect. I greatly appreciate it.
Watching your lips turn pink is also pretty cool. I’m a sucker for a magic trick! I even tried this on my daughter and her shade of pink did look different than mine. All though that could be because her skin tone is a little lighter than mine, I’m wondering if that is how they are able to make each person’s pink shade look different. Or is it really the whole PH business? I guess I’ll never know.
This lip stain is really moisturizing. Three cheers to the power of coconut. It’s like having a really nice chapstick but with the bonus power of adding a little color to your lips.
I’m really happy with this purchase!
Normal I go for a more full coverage look but even I have days where I just want to take it easy on my makeup look. This is also good for those work occasions where it wouldn’t necessarily be appropriate to whip out my black lipstick.
As far as the price goes while this isn’t the cheapest lip stain you will every buy it also isn’t the most expensive. Winky Lux can take my $14 for their Flower Balm product because it does exactly what it says it’s going to do. Is it an incredibly long lasting product? No. However that isn’t what it is advertising or claiming to do.
I will be buying this product again for sure and I have no problem ordering online. Bonus side is the fact that you get free shipping on orders $30 and above. Free International Shipping as well on orders at or above $75 so my overseas friends can take advantage of that.
I’m a makeup collect so there is a part of me that wants one of these in each of their different flower colors! All and all this was well worth the money.
Well you know how I feel so let me know what you think! Does this sound like a product you would be interested in? If you’ve already tried it before make sure that you give your impressions below as well.
❤ ❤ ❤ Until next time Grimms
