Urban Rituelle Milkshake Lip Balm


rrp $10.50

Ingredients: this product contains natural beeswax, sweet almond oil, olive oil, shea butter, sunscreen and vitamin E.

This comes in quite a large pot (20 gm) and if there's one thing about lip balm, its that it will last for ages. Also, the aforementioned pot is quite pretty, all pale pink with girly patterns. The scent is lovely, but it doesn't really make me think 'Milkshake'.

I found the balm to be overly runny in consistency and extremely glossy when applied. To the point where you can't wear too much, as it starts to glide right off. As it's so glossy you can wear it over lipstick to give an extra sheen. It is quite moisturising, but I just found this to have way too much of a 'wet look' for me.

  1. I saw these for sale online and was tempted to buy a few but they sound a bit disappointing regarding the scent (I really wanted them to smell like milkshakes!) and the consistency, I like quite a thick 'balm' type texture rather than a very thin shiny gloss.

  2. Me too! This one just slides right off. Luckily there are heaps of balms on the market to choose from :)
