Hema Easy Shine Lip Balm*

Hema Easy Shine Lipbalm

I think it’s pretty fair to say that chubby-stick style lip balms and glosses have taken the world by storm over the past couple of years. I’ve tried and loved crayon styles from Clinique to Clarins, but something they’ve had in common is a pretty high price tag.

Hema, though, have introduced their take on the Chubby Stick trend with their Easy Shine Lip Balm. Available in three shades – Red (pictured), Pink and Orange, they are a great option if you’re after a pop of glossy colour right in time for Spring.

When first applied, the Easy Shine Lip Balm feels super rich and nourishing, and the colour is beautifully glossy. The red shade is a lovely pink-toned red which is perfect for amping up a casual look. There is great colour payoff, and if you’re after a more intense look, the colour is incredibly easy to build. Although the wear-time wasn’t the very best I’ve tried, I easily got over two hours of glossy wear before I needed to touch up.

Hema’s Easy Shine Lip Balm costs £ 4.50 and is available here.

If you’ve not heard of Hema yet, get ready! I have the feeling it’s going to be the next H&M or Primark. They’re a Dutch lifestyle store which launched in the UK last summer, and they have a rather wonderful beauty section. I was very kindly sent a couple of bits to try, and I was completely blown away with the quality. The first thing I thought I would share is the stunning Quick and Go Nail Polish.

The bottle is dinky enough to easily slip into beauty bags, so it’s a perfect choice if you’re off somewhere in the near future, and want to stay polished. I just love the colour – it’s a beautiful cool toned baby pink which just touches on looking candy pink in some lights. Seriously adorable! The formula was easy to work with – it took 3 coats to achieve a smooth, even finish, but that’s pretty standard for the colour. What isn’t standard? The price! It’s only £2.50 and is available here.
