What it is:
Imported directly from Japan, Mentholatum's new limited edition Water Lip Tinted Lipbalm is formulated with super hydrating ingredients that offer only the best for your lipcare needs. Key ingredients used in this lipbalm formulation are 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid (Hyaluronic Acid, Nano Hyaluronic Acid & Super Hyaluronic Acid), Aloe Vera extracts, Collagen and Honey. Put together, these ingredients replenish and retain moisture as well as increase the elasticity of the lips. Additionally, the Honey components also help to form a protective barrier and restore the lip condition.
Upon application, it leaves a layer of "water film" on the lips for long hours of hydration while at the same time treats dry, chapped or cracked lips. The pigmented "water film" also gives the lips a glossy finish for fresh and healthy looking lips.
This limited edition Water Lip Tinted Lipbalm also comes with SPF 20 PA++, which protects lips from the UV rays of the sun. It is available in three tinted colour namelu Milky Pink, Raspberry Red and Rosy Pink.
I don't think it matters much which shade you choose. As you can see from the swatch, I really can't tell which shade is which. I had to swatch it on a piece of white paper to see the difference of the the shades. The tint is not as pigmented as how I wish it could be. Nonetheless, as a lipbalm itself, I think it is the best amongst all those chapsticks you can get in drugstore. It is tasteless and scentless, which is a plus. Totally kiss-proof and long lasting. I think it can easily last about 3 hours if there is no interruption of meals in between. The product texture is very thin, but it feels like it gives the hydration of a thick lip moisturizer, if that makes sense.
If you are looking for a good lipbalm, I will totally recommend you to get this. But if you are looking for a lipbalm with strong pigmentation of tint, you should skip this.
