Heads up fellow too-lazy-for-lipstick gals and dudes: if you want a just-been-kissed flush of colour but don’t want to wear a stain (too dry) or gloss (too… glossy?), try painting your laughing gear with some Apivita Lip Care with Pomegranate. It gives your lips a pleasant pop of colour that isn’t showy or over the top, and has just enough shine to be healthful rather than glammed up glossy.
The texture itself is rather nice, simultaneously a little waxy and a little oily. It melts into my lips quickly and doesn’t have a thick and filmy feel.
One thing worth keeping in mind is that the packaging isn’t fantastic – the lids are prone to popping loose and the little seat where the balm itself is embedded tends to be very shaky in the tube. I’ve been using various Apivita lipbalms since the brand was launched in Australia a few years back and while the balms that have lived on my desk have been fine, I’ve had a few breakages and mishaps with balms in my bag and in the car. So… you know. Handle with a tiny bit of care, or just leave them in a safe spot.
