this may be some of the smartest package design that i have seen in a long time. not only has revlon filled the elusive drugstore lip balm gap (which used to be occupied by my favorite l’oreal hip jelly balm, sadly no longer available) but they’ve done it in the most brilliant way.
first, let’s talk color and formula: the watermelon jolly rancher flavored balms come in three shades – peach crystal, pink crystal, and clear crystal (which looks almost blue). all are very sheer with a vaseline-y texture and have the added bonus of spf 15. they don’t pack a lot of punch in the pigment department, but if you’re looking for a sheer glossy gloss, this is it.
the little jar has a flip top lid which i really like (screw tops always end up getting dropped on dirty floors, eww) and revlon also added a tiny lip brush to pop in and out of the lid – SO VERY SMART! why has no one else thought to do this?! i hate applying balm with my fingers but carrying a lip brush around just seems so high maintenance. brilliant stuff, revlon. you have won me over in a big way with this little beauty.
revlon super lustrous lip balm is available at drugstores for around $8 – $10.
