Lip balms are every girl’s go-to product and they are indeed essential to maintain lip moisture since it cannot produce its natural oils. Nothing can beat finding a perfect tinted lip balm that can easily substitute your lipstick and island kiss lip balms are one of those tinted lip balms I currently use. Not only are these lip balms natural and organic, but they also are cruelty-free!
BRIEF ABOUT THE PRODUCTS: Island Kiss lip balms are 100% natural and organic. They are cruelty-free and not tested on animals. The lip balms contain organic oils that contain natural soothing extract that leaves lips soft, supple and smooth. Beeswax, mango and avocado butter repairs chapped lips and slows down aging process that cause lips to look wrinkled. SPF 15 helps protect lips from skin drying sun rays.

Island Kiss Tropique Pomade has launched 2 new shades and here are my thoughts on it:
BLACK ROSE AND GRENADE ROUGE
This lip balm has a pretty burgundy shade which looks really dark as a product when it is squeezed out but goes sheer but intensely pigmented on the lips. The colour is really pretty and can substitute your lipstick; people won’t even know it’s a lip balm! It has a sweet pomegranate-like smell and tastes a bit sweet too because of stevia in it- make sure you don’t eat it! I like using this under a matte lipstick to soften and moisturize my lips, over a matte lipstick for that added shine or simply alone since it is well pigmented.
Price: INR 499
FLAMINGO PINK AND PEONIES
This lip balm looks a pretty baby pink in tube but goes sheer and almost transparent on the lips. If you want just a subtle shine, you can use it alone or over a lipstick or also under a lipstick for moisturization. This particular lip balm has sweet-floral smell which is pleasant!
Price: INR 499
Both the lip balms are extremely moisturizing and can repair chapped lips; nourish, soften and replenish them. They contain SPF 15 which is great and will prevent your lips from harmful sun rays. They do transfer but since it is a lip balm, it is meant to be reapplied several times a day to help your lip retain moisture and softness. They aren’t sticky and go on smooth and feel comfortable on the lips. Overall, these lip balms are great and I will always have them in my hand bag.
