My Island Kiss Lip Moisturisers Review

May 08, 2017

Being a person with really dry lips, thanks to my habit of not drinking enough water, I can't imagine my life without a moisturiser. And what more, I am a sucker for liquid lipsticks. So It's important for me to always take care of my lips and keep them hydrated. Even though I kind of stick with one chapstick which works great for me, it doesn't stop me from trying new products. So when My Island Kiss sent me their collection of Tropiqué Pomade Lip moisturisers, I was really excited to give them a try.

Products & Prices

I received 3 lip moisturisers:

1. Alma Vanilla & Inges Lavender: Rs. 399/-
2. Cherry Blossom Flores: Rs. 399/-
3. Puerto Berry Blush: Rs. 499/-

Packaging

The packaging is definitely my favourite part of all the three products. It is so cool with the fancy pop art. I really loved how they put so much thought into it. The lip moisturisers come in tubes with a screw cap closure. the applicator is slanted so you can easily apply it on the lips directly from the tube. Each tube is also printed with the pop art similar to the one on it's box. Ingredients, shade name and the direction to use is also mentioned in the tubes.

Color & Pigmentation

1. Alma Vanilla & Inges Lavender: It has a slight Lavender tint to it which appears clear on application.
2. Cherry Blossom Flores: It is more on the creamier side with a slight hint on pink which looks whitish on the lips.
3. Puerto Berry Blush: This is the prettiest one out of the three with deep raspberry pigmentation.
Overall, if you like pigmented lip balms then you can only get it in the Puerto Berry Blush.

Smell

These smell amazing. Each lip balm has a unique smell due to the various ingredients. 
1. Alma Vanilla & Inges Lavender: It has a strong mixture of vanilla and lavender scent.
2. Cherry Blossom Flores: It has a sweet floral smell.
3. Puerto Berry Blush: It has a fruity smell.

Texture

The texture is more or less same for all the three variants. Thin oily consistency which provides good lustre on the lips. However, I don't find the formula that hydrating. They are more or like glosses. The ingredients are all natural and good for skin. So in that case you can opt for them when you want glossy lips but don't want to use a gloss or want to keep your lips nourished at the same time. You cannot really use them under a matte liquid lipstick though.

Staying Power

The staying power is really bad. It definitely transfers very easily. It's because of the three oils present in them which makes it very transferable.

Overall

Overall I think it's a great option for summer if you have normal or slightly dry lips. Since I have really dry lips it kind of doesn't work for me. Also, for the winter months it's not a great option too. I really love these lip balms but they are not for me. Still, I'll be using the Puerto Berry Blush whenever I feel my lips are not that dry.


So, I hope you found it useful. For more about the products, you should definitely check out their website,  click here.
