EOS Lip Balm in Lemon drop

Ages and ages ago, like, last year, I received an EOS lip balm in a makeup swap, you can just picture the squeals of joy when I ripped open the packaging to see one of these, it went straight on the lips and has been a firm favourite of mine ever since.

Then a few weeks ago, the lovely people at Cocktail Cosmetics offered to send me a couple of goodies to review, I of course graciously said yes thank you, and the rest is history!  Lets face it, it would have bene rude not to ;)

Did you know: EOS stands for Evolution of Smooth?  *shrugs* me neither!

The other two products they sent to me I've already reviewed (Japonesque brushes and Neve powder foundation), this is the third and final instalment.  So lets get on with the review!

My Thoughts

I always feel a bit like Jerry Springer when I start writing this!  You've probably guessed by my intro that I'm a fan of the EOS lip balms. They're not too waxy and they're not oily (that's something I really don't like).  They stay put on your lips for longer than you expect them too, and seal in moisture like a #boss.  They don't have any nasty ingredients in them like parabens and junk like that, nope, pretty much all natural, whoop.

They come in a range of mouth watering sounding flavours, like Strawberry Sorbet and Pomegranate Raspberry - these will be added to my collection very soon!  Next up, the packaging, they're neat, round and have a rubberised finish - and if you watch Beauty Broadcast (Emily Noel), you'll have clocked her EOS bowl in the background of all the flavours, they almost make a great centrepiece!  And, to quote Miss Glamorazzi, they look like a.....

All in all, I'm a big fan of these, I will be growing my collection of them with the afore mentioned flavours, and for £5.95 each and SPF15 in them, I'd recommend you do too :)

Now, take care of yourself, aaaand each other.

  4. I've been lusting after this for ever, they sound so much nicer than the balmis. Nice to see there's somewhere to buy them where they aren't extortionate!

  7. I love these :) although I love my Balmi a lot too which is very similar, I just wish they would bring the EOS version out over here in Boots/Superdrug and for a bit cheaper :D x
