Review: Chapstick Lipsations Shimmer Berry & Tropical

Chapstick Lipsations Shimmer Berry & Tropical*

When Chapstick sent me a special Christmas beauty box I was over the moon.
Lip balms are the one thing I always stock up on and go mad with at this time of year.
I like to have a good variety of them at hand to keep my lips soft, moisturised and of course kissable.
That’s where Chapstick’s Lipsations Shimmer lip balms came in handy.
+ Adds a touch of shimmer
+ Smells delicious!
– Slightly sticky
– Packaging was lacking

I don’t have much to complain about here really. These are moisturising and have really helped add a little touch of glamour to my lips with the subtle shimmer they offer. They smell absolutely delicious too! I was tempted to lick my lips more than a few times whilst wearing these. Thankfully I managed to resist and stopped myself from creeping out everyone in the close vicinity. On the down side these were ever so slightly sticky, but not as bad as a lip gloss. I would have liked the packaging to be a bit more original but I think it stays true to the Chapstick brand, so that’s not a massive con. I would have loved the berry one to be tinted, but then I suppose it would have got lost in the tons of other tinted lip balms currently making the rounds. Also, I don’t think anyone would want to know what the tropical one would look like as a tinted balm. Rambling aside, these are great for Winter, especially if you prefer staying au naturale at Christmas parties but still want to add a bit of sparkle to your look. At £1.99 you really can’t go wrong.
You can buy Chapstick’s Lipsations Shimmer Berry & Tropical at Superdrug.
