Claire’s Vanilla Cookie Flavoured Lip Balm, Claire’s Trifle Flavoured Lip Balm

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 lip balms I found at Claire’s – Claire’s Vanilla Cookie Flavoured Lip Balm and Claire’s Trifle Flavoured Lip Balm. I started to use these lip balms about a week before Christmas. And here’s what I think.

Claire’s Vanilla Cookie Flavoured Lip Balm is a pinkish-tinted lip balm. The pale pink tint is visible, and it doesn’t look flattering. The flavour is a bit random – definitely sweet, but nothing that could pass for vanilla, cookie or vanilla cookie. The lip balm is super soft and creamy, and it won’t stay on if you eat or drink.

Claire’s Trifle Flavoured Lip Balm is a purple-tinted, soft lip balm. The tint doesn’t show on the lips which is nice. The flavour reminds me of candy violets – I like it! This lip balm is also on the softer side, but fortunately not overly creamy, so it will stay on while you drink (not while you eat thought).

Lip balm 1 is a bit of a disappointment, but lip balm 2 is actually quite nice. In any event, I paid £1 per lip balm, so I can’t complain…

Claire’s Candy Cane Lip Balm, Claire’s Christmas Pudding Lip Balm, Manhattan Colour Loop Lipgloss 52S Soft Nude

Hi there! Today’s post is about a number of products. Since the reviews are rather short, I thought I’d do one post for all of them. And here they are…

Product number 1 is Claire’s Candy Cane Lip Balm which I picked up when it was on sale. I believe it was £1. I’ve given this lip balm a try, and I don’t like it at all. It has a slight red tint. Whilst this isn’t a deal-breaker, the boring red tea flavour is! I can’t bring myself to use it. I’ve binned it.

Claire’s Christmas Pudding Lip Balm is alright. It has a light brown tint, and it actually tastes like Christmas pudding. It’s not my favourite lip balm, but it’s definitely a decent one! I believe I paid £1 for it.

And here’s my favourite of the bunch – Manhattan Colour Loop Lipgloss 52S Soft Nude. I’ve already gone through one of these amazing lipglosses (yes, the same shade), and I just had to repurchase it! I also bought 2 other colours, but this one’s perfect for me. I love the sheer tint, and the flavour is sweet and lovely. I paid £1 for this lipgloss (Poundland).

Have you tried these products? Would you like to try them? Feel free to comment, and thanks for stopping by!
