Blistex Lip Brilliance Blushing SPF 15
Advantages: Softens the lips, gives them a splash of colour and leaves them in a better condition
My lips frequently get dry and cracked both in the summer and in the winter. I am always buying different products for my lips but I am also always losing them... Which led me to purchase the Blistex Lip Brilliance on a recent trip to Boots.
What does the product do?
The product softens the lips using Silk Extract and both strengthens and nourishes the lips using Vitamin E while protecting the lips from sun damage, keeping them looking younger for longer. It also contains Hyaluronic Filing Spheres which make the lips appear smoother and fuller. The balm is a shimmering pink colour to give a splash of colour to your lips leaving you with an all round prettier smile.
How do you use the product?
The product can be applied to the lips as often as needed.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within a salmon pink tube which has an ever so slight pearlescent sheen to it. The packaging is sturdy and will withstand being knocked about in my handbag. You remove the lid to use the product and you twist the bottom of the tube to move the product higher in the usual way. You can buy the product for around £2 and it can be bought from stores such as Boots and Superdrug, large supermarkets and also from a variety of online websites.
Application and Performance
The product looks a very deep burgundy colour but this only translates on to the lips in a sheer way. If you look really closely you can see tiny particles of shimmer inside the balm. The balm smells delicious and it is really very fruity so it has quite a summery scent. The product has a relatively creamy formula and it manages to glide across the lips without pulling or dragging the delicate skin. The product is very hydrating and it instantly makes my lips feel more comfortable. It doesn't highlight any dryness at all.
The product gives my lips a lovely splash of sheer colour which is perfect for daywear. It adds the slightest bit of shimmer but not in a school disco way but rather in a classy way. It gives the lips a really nice sheen that is almost gloss like, making them shine. I can't say I've noticed it filling in the lips of lips but then I didn't really buy the product for this purpose so it hasn't put me off. The product tastes just as delicious as it smells and it tastes really sweet when you lick it. Obviously you do need to try not to lick it off but it's still a benefit in my eyes.
It stays put for an hour or so, depending on whether you are eating or drinking but it is really easy to reapply. When the product is removed my lips are still feeling hydrated, soft and smooth and they look pretty and in a better condition. The product doesn't make my lips feel sticky or greasy so it is much better than a gloss in that way. It hasn't caused me any irritations or discomfort.
All in all, this is a lovely lip balm which softens the lips, prevents them from becoming dry and give them a lovely splash of colour. It makes my lips smell and taste nice, look pretty and leaves them in an all round better condition. Especially when considering the price, I can't fault this product and I will happily repurchase this product once it is all gone.
Summary: A lovely lip balm which softens, protects and beautifies the lips
