Review! theBalm Balm Girls Lipstick in Ima Goodkisser


First of all can we just look at how cute the packaging of theBalm products is? I love the vintage feel. All their packaging is just adorable. I mean, seriously. I love it.  And of course I'm a sucker for packaging. 


Anyway, I got this lipstick off of Hautelook when theBalm was on along with a few other things. I purchased the shade Ima Goodkisser because it looked like a nice color for the summertime.






This shade is described as a "soft, shimmering coral" on theBalm's website. It's more of a pinky coral then an orange. 




Here's a small swatch on the inside of my wrist.. As you can see the shimmer is pretty noticeable. I'm not much of a fan of shimmer or frosts or anything like that, so..



And here it is on my lips.. I don't really like the way it looks on me. I think it's mostly because of the shimmer. I'm not sure. I can't completely pinpoint what it is about it that I don't like that much on me. I think it would look really nice on fairer skintones..

This lipstick has a very slight mint scent and also taste.. You can feel a little bit of a minty tingle. I almost feel as if it very slightly plumps my lips.. 

It's a bit of a harder lipstick.. It's not as smooth or creamy as other lipsticks that I own. It drags a bit more and such. And it can really accentuate fine lines and dryness on my lips..


So I don't love this lipstick and I don't hate it, either. I suppose I'm kind of neutral!  There are five other shades - a red, berry, nude, bronze and a pink. The other colors don't quite appeal to me all that much but the red does look pretty awesome!


I don't think I would purchase another one of these, though. I'm also glad that I didn't pay full price.  I love theBalm but this lipstick isn't up with my favorite products.

  2. I think it looks good on you! try it with a lipgloss with a light tint to make it "more your color" but in my opinion it's perfect just like that.
