NYX COLOR LIP BALM (ARIGATO) REVIEW8/27/2012
This is the first time I bought a lip balm that has a color. Firstly, I want to buy NYX eyebrow kit (will review it soon), and at ULTA, they have buy 1 get 50% discount for 2nd item, it's a great deal. After thinking what I should buy, then I realize I don't have many lipstick/ let's say, a lip color. I see this lip balm and it has color too. Suddenly, I get excited to trying them. There're many colors in the website, It has 12 colors and they named it "thank you" with different languages. I bought "arigato" (Japanese word for thank you) .
It costs $3.79 at ULTA.
Let's see what NYX says about this color lip balm

Here's the swatches, it has shimmer. I don't like shimmer actually, because the shimmer still on the skin even after I clean it. *
I don't like shimmer at all, I'm the matte girl!*
The swatches between on my hand and my lips is different. I already have a red/pinkish lips and this color lip balm has a very soft color, so the color didn't show up on my lips.

As you can see, just the shimmer that can be seen on my lips.
I love the scents, it's sweet and has a fruity scents. It's soft, pretty moisturizing, not sticky and the shimmer is not to over so it still gives me a natural look. But this balm wears off easily! when I lick my lips (accidentally) it's gone...disappeared! I have to apply it again and again.
Overall? Good product
Re-purchased? maybe not. If there's a discount I'll try the other colors. lol.
