I have always been a huge lip balm girl. You can find different sticks and little pots in my bag, pencil case, the pockets of my coats or jackets and sometimes they’d sadly get ruined by the washing machine when I had forgotten them in the pocket of my jeans.
As all of you already know by now (or if you don’t, why have you lived in the left corner of a shoebox for the past month?) Rimmel London launched a new Keep Calm lip balm range back in August and when they finally hit the stores I went and bought all of them – typical me.
As soon I saw them, I fell in love with the colourful and fun packaging – and the fact that most of the lip balms leave a hint of colour on your lips except the “Keep calm and Shop”. I have always liked Maybelline’s Baby Lips range but I find the Rimmel’s Keep Calm a lot more hydrating. They are very smooth and easy to apply with the slanted nib. I haven’t had the courage to try out purple lipstick yet so I think it’s great to see how it would look on me using the Party lip balm even though the colour is a lot more subtle.

Personally I think Rimmel London has done a great job with the lip balms and they are something I’ve started to use every day, all day. They’re not only useful for when your lips are dry but also a great way to start out using something different for your lips especially if you’re just beginning to use makeup but don’t want to go for lipstick just yet. I think it’s something moms could buy for their daughters when they play princess and want to put a bit of makeup on – as we all wanted to do when we were little – or then they could just buy it for themselves and use it to brighten up their look a bit.
Have you tried these lip balms? What did you think of them?
