Review: Avon Luxe Silken lip balm (Honey Tint)11:42
I was ordering something from Avon and in the catalog which is sort of a preview of what's to come, I saw that their Luxe range was adding lip balms. I couldn't help but order one, since I've been really liking colored lip balms for putting over drying lipsticks or just wearing it on its own.
I got it for 2.90€, regular price is 7€, but now it's on offer for 3.90€. You get 3.6 grams of product. It's their classy gold plastic packaging, which I love so much. It looks like a lipstick, although it's a lip balm. Looks very luxurious.
They offer 4 shades: Natural Tint, Rose Tint, Honey Tint and Berry Tint. I got it in the shade Honey Tint.
Honey Tint it a peachy brown shade. It looks darker and browner in the bullet. On me it looks like a very peachy brown.
The lip balm contains retinol and collagen. It should give the lips sensational smoothness, softness and volume. The lips should be hydrated and softly colored. It also has SPF of 15.
It feels very rich and waxy. It's definitely not a lightweight formula, but more of a butter wax based product. I actually love the wax feeling on my lips, because I always love using lip balms that are wax based. It feels just a little sticky, but nothing horrible. Because of the wax it stays on the lips pretty well for a lip balm and it definitely feels moisturizing. It never dried my lips out and in general feels like a really good hydrating or at least protecting layer lip balm. Because it's so rich, if you'll layer it on it will almost feel like a thin layer of lipstick. Shine is the first thing that fades away and that is why it can almost pass as a thin lipstick.
I love the color that it leaves on my lips. It's nice alternative to heavy duty lipsticks, since it gives you a really nice color and a bit of shine. It's also the perfect choice for summer heat days and it has SPF, so that's always a plus.
This is great product if you don't like lipsticks and want a hint of color. It's great for anyone that likes wax based lip products and still wants hydration. Or it may just be a nice color alternative to your usual lip balms or your new favorite summer lip product. I've been wearing this a lot. It's just so easy to put on and it's definitely on the go product for when you want a little more.
