Hi, everyone! Is the weather slowly changing for the better where you live? I’m starting to see some exposed legs nowadays, although I’m still bundled up in a coat running my errands. The weather here in the South can fluctuate 20 degrees day to day, so I have to be ready for just about anything — rain, sun, and the chill. My skin has suffered the most, and I had to postpone reviewing and swatching lip products lately — except for these guys!
New for spring, the Covergirl Oh Sugar! Vitamin Infused Balms (around $8 each) come in 10 sweet shades infused with grapeseed oil and avocado butter, but they feel weightless. With super sweet names like Gumdrop and Sprinkle, the balms are actually not overly sweet-smelling. I think they even smell a little minty (but there’s no tingling sensation).
As you can see from the swatches, these give a hint of color, and only the darker shades will be detectable on most lips.
One issue I have with them is with the packaging. My lip balms came with texture on the sides because they moved during shipping. One even fell out of the tube completely, but I was able to push it back in. I recommend holding onto your receipt just in case you encounter one with an issue!
I usually wear very pigmented and matte lip colors, so these have been a nice change in my rotation while I let my lips recover.
See you in the next!
