As fun as a bright lipstick can be, on a day to day basis, you’ll find me in clear balms and nude glosses. I’m not someone who has the time, or the patience, to make sure a red lip stays flawless all day. So, as you can imagine, I’m always on the hunt for a fun daily find, and I’m not sure you can do much better than Winky Lux’s Flower Balm!
Packaged to look like an oversize pill, the bright colds and shiny gold cap means this isn’t something that’s going to get lost at the bottom of your makeup bag! My one issue with the packaging is, if you had multiple balms, it’s going to be nigh on impossible to know which one is which without taking the caps off. Not the biggest deal breaker in the world, but something to bear in mind nonetheless.
Once you get inside the Flower Balm, you get to notice how very pretty it is. Real chrysanthemum petals in varying colours are arranged at the base of each balm in varying colours. The balm itself feels silky smooth to apply, and the light coconut scent feels perfect for summer.
Thanks to the magic of pH, on the lips, Winky Lux flower balms a perfect shade of pink. Unlike other products of its type, which can veer too bright or too plummy, Winky Lux’s balm leaves lips with a perfect strawberry pink tint, which lasts for two to three hours per application.
