Shiseido ColorGel LipBalm Review

Have you found a lipbalm that you can actually use and can actually hydrate your lips?
Well, I kind of found one accidentally when I wasn't looking.  I picked this up recently because it says ColorGel lipbalm and you know how I love "gel" texture in anything (ex. Moisturizing, etc...)  

The shade I got was a bit dark on tube but I knew this is a lipbalm so I understood this will be sheer.

Shiseido ColorGel LipBalm
Shade: 110 Juniper

This lightweight-yet-hydrating balm melds seamlessly with lips thanks to high- and low-melting point waxes that provide the perfect amount of structure and slip.Infused with patented humectant technology, this balm-lipstick hybrid offers lasting moisture and comfort—leaving lips feeling softer and healthier with every use.Available in 10 shades inspired by nature indigenous to Japan, this nourishing formula boasts semi-sheer coverage, and a delicate, shiny finish.Dermatologist-tested.

Housed in a simple black packaging with a red accent, I actually like how pretty this looks!
I checked international site and found that Shiseido offers 9 shades and I am not sure if they carry all shades locally!    

Juniper is very sheer but has a hint of deep berry to it.  If your lips are light, you'll see the color when applied but on my dark pigmented lips, the shade won't appear at all instead, I just have healthy-looking lips minus the color.

Before and After application

What I love about Shiseido ColorGel Lipbalm is the fact that I feel like I'm not wearing any lip product at all.  It is super lightweight and my lips feel hydrated all throughout the day.  YES, for a product with lightweight texture, I am surprised this can stay after eating and drinking!

If you are aiming for color, maybe pick Visionary lipstick from the same brand instead, but just like me, on days like when I'm working out and I don't need any color on my lips, I pick this one up and enjoy intense moisture all throughout the day!

On the downside, this is a bit pricey for a lipbalm with tint, but if you want to invest something for your uber dry lips, you may give this a try!

Because you are, indeed, worth it!
