I was finally able to get my hands on some of the coveted Winky Lux Flower Balm lipstick!
(Here's a picture from their website)
I ordered my product the first week of October & the estimated arrival was October 27th. It was so popular from being on Facebook, Woman's Day Magazine, & many other places that it was on back order!
But behold! I got mine on October 27th as promised when I ordered so I am very impressed. Right now the 3rd batch of the balm is expected to go out on November 29th, this seems like a long time from now but trust me it;s worth the wait.
So here's a little bit more info about the product from Winky Lux's website:
We've added a new magic pill to our collection! 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 fairy-picked 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.
Everything advertised about this product is true! It goes on clear & after a few seconds turns into a beautiful, natural shade of pink. It's a "your lips but better" color. It also has a coconut scent that is not to strong & overwhelming that goes away after application. I'm not sure about fairies picking the flowers but I would believe it! (LOL)
I ordered a pink flower for me & a green one for my mom & I'm a little jealous of her's...
The yellow one is back for this 3rd launch and I might try to get my hands on that one in the future to see what it looks like in real life.
I'm not really a stickler for ingredients or things like that but if you are here is a list of the ingredients in the product from the website:
INGREDIENTS: Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Diisostearyl Malate, Octyldodecanol, Dibutyl Iauroylflutamide, Dibutyl Ethylhexanoyl, Thylhexanoyl Glutamide, Isononyl Isononanoate, CI 45410, Chrysanthemum.
Now here are some pictures of the product once I received & opened it:
(Here is a outside of the box...not sure why it's sideways because I took it facing straight on)
(Look at those pretty worms!)
(I really liked that the boxes were labeled on the outside so if this was a gift for someone you would also know which one was yours)
(It's upside down & I'm not sure why...but as you can see the tube itself is about 1/2 an inch smaller than a normal tube of lipstick)
(But...the product is the same size!)
(Here's a top view)
(TADA! It's so pretty!)
(Here's the green one I ordered for mom)
(And this is what it looks like on in natural sunlight)
Overall I really like the product so far. It goes on very smooth, the scent is awesome but doesn't linger & gag you like some products, the color is something wearable for every day casual or fancy, & the price wasn't awful. You have to think of it as a fun, unique product & not necessarily compare it to a normal lip product where you are paying for the color or the name. You are mainly buying this for the way it looks & you are going to LOVE it! On another note it is much like a balm stick or petroleum based lip balm it wears for 3 to 4 hours then drys down. So you will need to reapply it or use a regular balm on top to keep the color that lingers a little.
I hope you've enjoyed this review! Let me know if you try it & like it too :)
