AMW Reviews: Mentholatum Lip Ice Color Lip balm

Teenagers nowadays are lucky in every way!  From technology to as simple as lip balms!  I can still remember my mom telling me how much she wants to have her lips "colored" and her mom was very strict about it so she ended up using crayons!  (I must have gotten a bit of that genes..LOL)

During my time, I remember wanting the lip balms that my classmates use, one swipe --- nice pinkish lips!

I've longed for those but I don't have the money to purchase one!  I've ended up purchasing those inexpensive ones that tastes like melted plastic!   The things I do to have a nice hint of color on my lips!

Nowadays, I've been seeing more and more tinted lip balm that are priced just right and works really well!  I wish we have them decades ago! 

The Mentholatum Lip Ice Color Lip Balm

Lip Ice Color Lip balm says ---
  • Gives natural and lovely color for soft and beautiful lips.
  • A super moist retention formula with water microsphere and AcHA (Sodium Acetyl Hyaluronate).
  • Contains Vitamin E, Lanolin Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Mango Seed Butter to keep your lips soft and moisturized.
  • SPF15 for UV Protection
Available in: Candy Apple, Pretty Pink and Sweet Rose

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Gives out a very pretty shade of reds or pinks depending on the variant you choose.
  • Glides on easily on lips.
  • Packaging is sleek.
  • No weird scent.
  • Gives out a nice "glitter" that is not too chunky!
  • Gives a nice 3-dimensional look of your lips because of the various shades of tiny specks or glitters.
  • Has SPF 15!
  • Inexpensive
Cons
  • Since the product is housed in a very slim packaging, it is very easy to finish up the product!
  • Limited shades available.
  • Moisture power is not enough for super dry lips.
Overall
A very nice tinted lip moisturizer that looks like you have naturally good, colored lips!

Tips
  • Store in cool, dry place.
  • Do not twist the product too much to prevent breakage during application.
  • If you have very dry lips, choose to prep your lips with a really good lip balm prior to application of the Lip Ice Color Lip balm.
  • Re-apply as much as needed as this has moisturizing properties which makes the color glides off easily.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

To whom do I recommend this to?
From teens to adults!  This is a great start up lipstick that youngsters can play with as the price isn't bad and the quality is good!

Where to purchase and how much?
Available at Watson's or Beauty by SM for Php125.00 (approx $2.90).

What's your first tinted lip balm?
I can't seem to remember mine!  It tastes so bad it crashed my memory! :P

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  2. I think most of used chapstick as our first lip balm. :) i'll try this mentholatum tinted lip balm after i used up my nivea tinted balm.
    Btw Nikki, I tried the carmex lip balm and it really worked for my dry lips. After 3 days of using it morning and night I can see the result already. My lips are very dry lately because of some meds i' m taking. My H is also using it hehehe...

  4. Mine was Avon's Flavor Saver (the old ones) in Strawberry. I was a Freshman in High School when my grandma introduced me to powders and lipbalms... then later on, lipsticks and mascaras... =)

  7. I think my first tinted lip balm was a cherry flavored avon lip gloss.

    I can't wear the lip ice lip balm without my burts bees lip balm.. I need something minty before putting anything else on my lips. Burt's Bees + Lip Ice = magic :)

  8. Hi Nikki,

    I saw these lip ice lip balm in Watsons in SM Clark, I think I'm gonna try this or the lip ice sheer color you blogged before, just waiting for my avon lip balm to become empty.

    I recently purchased the Fines Oil Control sheets you blogged about and I'm enjoying it. Instead of doing retouch, I just wipe my face especially the nose part to eliminate oiliness.

    You really influence me on buying beauty stuff especially those affordable ones and this is the reason why I super enjoy your blog.

    One more thing, now, I spend more time in Watsons to check on beauty or cosmetic products.

    Happy Sunday:)

  9. The Kikay Girl, lucky you that your first lip balm is from Chapsticks, It was a bit pricey for my "no allowance" days! Gosh, I am really old@ :p

    Baya, sad to say, I started to purchase my own Chapsticks when I got in college, I started highschool with lip balm and I swear, I've bought those really inexpensive ones that melts! I'm glad the Carmex lip balm works for you and you're lucky inexpensive works for you! YAY!!!!
