If you follow me on Instagram (@zivagedei) you have probably seen the package I got from the postman today. I included some Isadora and Burt's Bees goodies and since I was way too excited, I decided to post a quick post about my first impressions of the lip products i received.
Let's start with IsaDora's Color Chock Glossy Lip Stain in shade 50 Diva Pink, which I'm wearing in the first photo. I'm starting this post off with my favourite product. I am already head over heels in love with this product. I imagine this is what matte lip creams apply like. It has a doe foot applicator, looks like a gloss, but is instead an insanely pigmented lip cream. Literally in that photo, I only applied it to my bottom lip, smacked my lips together, and the color was so opaque. I am just thrilled with this product and this gorgeous blue-ish pink shade is gorgeous as well. Seriously ooh-ing and aah-ing over this product and will use it consistenly, and definitely want more shades from this range. Price is 15,50€.
Next up is another IsaDora product, and it's the Twist-Up Gloss Stick Moisturizing Lip Filler in shade 08 Red Romance. Now I'm a big fan of these lip crayons and my firm favourites are Clinique Chubby Sticks, which I think are the ones that started the trend. However, I have to say these are a completely different product, mora comparable to the Bourjois lip crayons. Red Romance is very pigmented and a tiny bit waxy, it's also very longlasting. The waxiness helps it stay on longer. They feel ok on the lips - not really moisturizing, but not at all drying. Really love the shade, which I'm wearing in the third photo. The formula is definitely better than the Bourjois crayons though, and I also like the color selection Isadora has - some beautiful shades in there! Price is 14,77€.

Lastly we have a lip balm, and I am so thankful I got one, because I can never have too many and this one is great. It's Burt's Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil and in the tube it's tinted - very very slightly though. Personally I have very colorless lips and I kinda look dead if I don't wear any lipstick. This is a bit annoying as sometimes lipsticks are way too drying (especially if I went to town biting my lips the previous night). This is why I love this lip balm - it's very moisturizing, but so lightly tinted that it doesn't look like you're wearing anything, while still adding some much needed color to my face. It smells lovely as well, which is an added bonus. By the way, these come in a variety of scents and flavours (beeswax, red grapefruit, honey). I'm wearing it in the middle photo. They cost 4,42€.
It's probably obvious that I'm thrilled about these products, but keep in mind these are just my first impressions. I plan on writing more detailed posts on the products as well (especially the lip balm from Burt's Bees, which came in the cutest kit)!
