I honestly had no intention of buying anything from Zoella's beauty range, whilst i like Zoella a lot, I'm just not blown away by her beauty range. Don't get me wrong; it's packaged lovely and I'm sure the products themselves are really nice too but to me, it just lacks a bit of imagination especially where the scents are concerned; first, vanilla and now tutti frutti - it's just not very original.
That being said, one product that did catch my attention and i couldn't resist picking up was the Zoella Kissy Missy Lip Balm.
Regardless of my initial thoughts; this is actually a lovely lip product. I don't rate it too much as a lip balm - it is moisturising and non sticky but it's not the kind of lip balm you'd be using to save your dry lips in winter. I don't quite know how to describe the consistency of it; whilst it feels creamy in the tub it's not so creamy to apply on the lips.
The thing i like the most about this lip product is the pigmentation, you'd almost think this is a lipstick. Its such a quick and easy way to get a hint of colour on the lips, you can keep it a really subtle colour or you can layer it up and get a more bold and intense lip colour. The colour leaves a slight stain on the lips so it wears really well and lasts for hours. Ironically, i think it smells more like vanilla that it's supposed tutti frutti scent but its a pleasant scent either way.
I don't particularly like the name of this lip balm; 'kissy missy' just sounds a little bit childish to me. However, that doesn't affect the product so I'm sure I'll get over it.
