i received this for free for my birthday from sephora, like many of you also did. i didn`t even touch this until the past two months when i decided to put these in my bag for when i need to use them on the go.
the first thing about these lip balms is that they`re TINY! they are free though and the full sized ones are definitely bigger. i keep these in a little makeup bag for my purse so it`s nice that they`re small, but if these were just floating loose in my bag, i`d lose them all the time lol
the packaging on these is gorgeous. i felt so dumb because the first time i tried to open them, i kept pulling at the cap and i was so confused as to why they wouldn`t open. and then i figured out you twist the caps off. that makes them feel so classy even though they`re tiny little samples!
as for the product itself, i like them but damn i would never purchase these for full price. these haven`t worked miracles on my lips or done anything that a cheaper lip balm can`t do. i love my nivea kiss of smoothness lip balms - those are my HG and they`re significantly cheaper and they`re just so moisturizing! i don`t feel like these compare at all.
it`s nice that a tinted lip balm is included too. in the photo with the swatch above, it`s probably nicer to just look at the little thumb nail because the actual photo is total crap, but it just gives a sense of the color. it`s not very pigmented and i didn`t expect it to be. if you have the burt`s bees pomegranate lip balm, this one does the same thing but with a slightly rosier color. on my lips though, it doesn`t really show up because i have really pigmented lips that are already very close in color to the color of this lip balm.
all in all, i`m glad i got some free lip balms to throw in my everyday makeup bag! would i repurchase the full size? nope!
what are your thoughts on the free sephora birthday fresh duo?
