Collection Mardi Gras Lip Balms Review!

I picked these up a week ago in Porthcawl Boots while they were on offer and they are perfect for the summer. I don’t really like to wear matte lipsticks and heavy colours in the summer so something like this is perfect to pop on your lips to keep them hydrated and add some sheen to a natural look.

There are currently Limited Edition 3 flavours, all translucent despite their coloured look!

Orange, Strawberry and Green Apple, all scented to mimic their names.


Price: £1.99

Time trialed: 1 week.

There are no swatches with this review as they are translucent and look like any regular balm!

The texture is very smooth and your lips do feel quite hydrated for a while after application! I did find myself applying less often than Baby Lips by Maybelline, and felt these were more smooth and less like a lipstick feel like Baby Lips.

The Scents are lovely, taste almost sherbety, but the green apple smells a lot more like watermelon, which isn’t such a concern for me as I love watermelon!


Overall, £1.99 is an amazing price if you don’t like colour but want to add a sheen to your look.

Grab them while you can, as they are limited edition!

Value for money: ♥♥♥♥♥

Does what it says on the tin: ♥♥♥

Staying Power on skin: ♥♥♥♥

Packaging: ♥♥♥♥

Consistency and workability: ♥♥♥

Would I repurchase? I probably would if they released lipbalms in the future!

Overall: ♥ 3/5 ♥

  1. I did see these today and wondered if they had a hint of colour. The smelt great but cheap lipbalms can sometimes really dry your lips. So thanks for the post! x

    1. These actually weren’t drying at all! In fact they’re only around £1/£2 cheaper than Nivea lip balms so although they are cheap they did a good job. Compared to Maybelline’s Baby lips I didn’t have to reapply often, as Baby Lips has acid that exfoliates the lips as you wear making them drier and makes you use that product more. Think of This as a lip shine. 🙂
