Hey guys! I’m not much of a makeup user but when my lips match my skin color, I get a lot of, “Hey, are you feeling okay?” So for those days, I like to get a little color. That’s where this intriguingly orange balm comes into play! I have the Kaja Mood Balm in First Thing which changes from orange to a peachy color.
Claims: On Sephora they say,
“Apply to bare lips for a sheer flush of color, or layer over your favorite lip product to transform its shade and finish.”
A light pat across the lips will give a sheer flush but a full application will be like lipstick. This balm is thick, and if you’re going for the light wash of color, definitely less is more. I can also see how layer this would be really pretty.
I really like this tint. On me, the tint is more of a cool tone pink but still pretty natural. Furthermore, if I just leave the balm on overnight or for a while in the morning, it stains the lips really evenly. The balm comes off quickly when eating but the stain stays. In terms of moisturization, I think the balm actually dries out my lips a little so I only use it for color. If I want to use this, I have to apply a layer of Burt’s Bees, otherwise it’ll make my lips peel. Overall, I really like the shade that I have, and I would definitely recommend it.
Pros and Cons:
- Stains long lasting
- Really pretty
- A little drying
Who Should Use:
I think anyone who is looking for a lip balm that can go from sheer to full coverage lipstick would really enjoy this. It stains beautifully and the shades would work for anyone.
It’s a little pricey because you could acheive the same effect with another cheaper korean tint, but I still realy enjoy using this.
