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.
