For the past couple of days I have been using this –
This is a Maybelline Popstick. Apparently not a new product, I picked this up in the pound shop (as usual). I wasn’t even sure what it was when I got it, but i’m kind of glad I did.
It is a clear balm that is supposed to provide a degree of tint. It does tint a little, but as I got the orange colour called ‘citrus slice’, it isn’t extreme. There were no other colours, or else I would have picked them up just for the packaging.
There appears to be a little mica or something in the product, but it certainly isn’t glittery or shiny.
It doesn’t last too long on the lips, it’s quite thin and if it wasn’t a solid it could be described as watery. I did have to reapply quite a lot.
This isn’t too much of a problem though, as the top end of the casing has a metallic coating that doubles as a makeshift mirror.
If I had paid full price for it, I would have been very disappointed. However, I spent a single pound on it, and would have happily gone back for any other colours in the range. So far, no luck.
