The Chinese are still ‘embracing’ the Chinese New Year festive season, and although most of us Malaysians have started work by now, we still make time to savour the awesome delicacies specially made during CNY despite our growing waistlines! I had to play it cool and look all ‘natural’ (*cough*) during this festive season as most of my relatives will be around, and I don’t want them to think I’m hell of a vain pot who needs a red lipstick to look alive and HAWT!!!….well, although I must admit I do, sometimes. *flip hair to the other side*
So with all the eating and chattering business around, I needed something moisturizing for my poor dry lips and that is easy to apply whenever I had to. Also, I don’t want to clean the stains on my cups whenever I take a sip or two. That would be an annoying sight to see stains and a ring on the lips when I go yakking with my lovely friends and family. What would be a better choice than a tinted lip balm in a tube packaging?
I was gifted shade 08 in Plum Punch by one of my nicest cousins, and being a fan of organic and botanicals, I was more than happy to receive this glossy balm that does not have any shimmer in it and is not too sticky while wearing it. I needed something subtle, understated yet moisturizing for a long time. This pigmented-looking glossy balm may look scary at first sight with some purple tones in the tube and may not be a shade I would pick for myself at the very first impression, but this one gives a very slight tint on the lips, allowing your natural lip colour peep through.
This glossy lip balm keeps my lips hydrated all day long without the tingling feeling that I may get with one of Clinique’s lip balm. At RM58 for 15ml that is available at Origins retail stores and Parkson departmental stores, this will not be the only lip balm from Origins. I like this lip balm, and I thank my cousin for giving me this. She is awesome, and I used to admire her moisturized lips. Now I know! Hahaha!
Have you tried this lightly tinted lip balm or any other brand’s that you like? This will not replace my current favourite here, but I find this handy for a simple, natural and understated look. By the way, since Valentine’s Day is drawing near, Origins Malaysia has a special set where 4 of its beautiful, best-selling shades – Nude Nectarine, Pink Guava, Cherry Pop, and Plum Punch, will be sold for only RM88 for each set!
