When it comes to Benefit, i have pretty much all of their boxed powders. So when i was at my local counter a few weeks ago wanting to treat myself, i was on a mission to try something new - a product of theirs I'd never tried. In the end, i decided on the Benefit Lollibalm (£14.50 Boots).
Benefit claim that the Lollibalm gives you the 'softest, flirtiest lips'. I've tried a lot of lip balms over the years - i obsessively re apply my lip balm often all day as i hate having dry lips and exfoliate my lips often. I like taking care of my lips as having your lips in better condition means other lip products will look better.
I can't say i was particularly impressed with the Lollibalm. I didn't find it very hydrating and it had a slight sticky feeling to it which isn't really ideal in the windy weather. The colour is a lovely 'candy-orchid' but it's very sheer. I wasn't expecting full on colour but maybe a little bit less sheer for the price tag. For me, i prefer the Maybelline Babylips which are a fraction of the price. The scent is strong - which i liked but i know it's not everyone's cup of tea. I'll use this but i doubt I'll repurchase. This is the first Benefit product I've tried that i haven't got along with. I know a lot of other people have loved these balms but sadly they haven't worked for me!
