Cailyn Lip Balm
When I first saw the Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in my Ipsy Glam bag I was very excited. I tried their eyeliner and I loved it. It sells for $19.00 and there are lots of pretty colors to chose from.
The lip balm comes in the same packaging as the eyeliner which I thought was very cute. It's a little pot and the top has brush built in.
I was so shocked when I first applied, it was the driest balm I have ever used. Most balms I have used are very soft and go on sticky or gooey. I would have never known it was considered a balm if I was not reading the package. If this had been a blind study I would have bet money it was a long lasting lipstick. The brush makes it very easy to apply with preciseness, I could use it as a lip liner if I wanted to. Also with brush built in you'll never need to hunt for it.
It is also the most pigmented lipbalm I have used it goes on very dark and very matte. The color I got was Big Apple 08 it is a red shade. I'm not a huge fan of red but if you are it would be a great shade. It stayed on for a very long time and it never got sticky or gooey. It felt like I had nothing on the entire time I was wearing it.
Would I buy this? I've very torn about this one. If I'm being perfectly honest with you, I may try another color with my Ispy savings code but I don't know if I would spend $19.00 on a lip balm. But I may buy it to wear as a lipstick because it wears so long and I don't want to wipe it off after a few minutes. Would I recommend this? Yes, if you are willing to pay the price it works very well fells like I'm wearing nothing.
Looking at would you know it wasn't a lipstick?
