Review: It’s Skin – Macaron Lip Balm

Product: Lip Balm
Brand: It’s Skin
Price: $5.55 usd
Buy from: Gmarket

Macarons have taken Melbourne by storm. Everywhere you see new cafes and patissieries popping up offering their own twist on macarons. Too be honest, I’m quite tired of it by now, and after trying so many different macarons, I still think the ones made by Violet were the best I’ve ever eaten.

But macaron lip balms are a completely different thing. I adore food and cosmetics packaged to look like food? Oh, come to mumma!!

Here’s the original photo taken from the sales page:

Adorable. I couldn’t leave this alone, I had to buy it! So into my shopping cart it went. I purchase the strawberry and green apple flavours and have been using them on and off since I received them earlier this week.

What I think:

  • Incredible price point.
  • Adorable packaging
  • Does its job beautifully as a lip balm
  • Non-greasy
  • Smells and taste faintly of the flavour it’s meant to be.
  • Scent does not linger – big tick!

    Sold? Hell yeah, I’m sold. I want to purchase heaps more so I can give them out to friends! I think they’d make amazing little gifts. If you have a chance, do get some for yourself too! If enough people request for it, I’ll put up a page on how to purchase from gmarket.

    What do you think, would you buy them?
